Vapiano launches new restaurant in London’s Paddington


Made-to-order Italian restaurant brand Vapiano has opened its newest outpost today in Paddington, adding to the group’s other three restaurants in London.

The new restaurant, which will serve the chain’s “hyper-customisable” menus, is the first to launch in the capital since Vapiano Tottenham Court Road launched in 2018.

Vapiano serves handmade fresh pasta and pizza cooked fresh to order using ingredients made on site.

Pasta dishes featured on the menu include gamberetti e spinaci with king prawns, aglio e olioor, with the option to customise dishes also available by adding fresh chilli, garlic, meat or fish.

Pizza lovers equally have plenty to choose from, with options such as a classic diavoloor, a hearty calzone with mushrooms, prosciutto and mozzarella.

As with the pasta menu, pizzas can also be customised by guests.

Vapiano Paddington is located on the corner of Eastbourne Terrace and Craven Road, a stone’s throw from both London Paddington train station and the Paddington basin.

It is the fourth restaurant from the group to hit the capital, alongside stores in Great Portland Street (Oxford Circus), Tottenham Court Road and Tower Bridge.

The new restaurant, which is open from 12pm, is the most intimate of the UK Vapiano sites at 4,500 square feet, serving 168 covers compared to the typical 350 covers.

The walls will have hand-drawn murals from Swedish artist Matilde Petterson and the restaurant will feature the signature olive tree sitting in the centre of the space.

A separate bar is available at the venue and the restaurant will boast the same sharing tables and laid-back seating areas that Vapiano is known for.

Manager Marco Dechecco, who has worked for the company for five years, will oversee the restaurant.

The chain also has restaurants in Manchester and Edinburgh.

Vapiano lives on in the UK following pre-pack administration
