If you are visiting Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast and looking for a delicious and unique Italian restaurant to eat at then I strongly recommend Vapiano located in the Cavill Mall.
Vapiano serves amazing authentic Italian meals such as pizza, pasta, and desserts. I have never had such great tasting pizza as I had at this place.
The unique thing about Vapiano is that you place your order with the staff then they give you a small electronic device that will buzz when your food is ready to be collected. My family and I had fun seeing whose was going to go off first. It was pretty exciting and different and the buzzer was true to its word - you bring it back to the staff and they give you your food.
If you are ordering pasta at Vapiano you can watch as they prepare it in front of you. It's great to see how fresh your meal is before you eat it and it's quite entertaining to watch the chefs cook it and they were very outgoing and friendly.
There are vegetarian and vegan options here which is great if you are going out with a mixed bunch. My aunt ordered a vegetarian pizza and said it was fantastic. I opted for the barbecue chicken pizza which I loved.
Children will love dining at Vapiano as they have a cute children's menu with smaller sized pizzas and pastas. The food did not take long to come out at all and the whole family got to eat together. The children who were with us were occupied with colouring in papers and pencils.
Overall I really enjoyed my experience at Vapiano whilst I was on holiday and I wish they had one where I live.
