Tartu's version of this popular international chain is a pleasant, leafy affair. It sits at one edge of the Kvartal shopping mall with an adjacent pedestrian street providing views and, season permitting, opportunities for al-fresco dining. For those unfamiliar with Vapiano, it revolves around a 'fresh-casual' concept where the tantalising food is prepared right before your very eyes. Arriving visitors are given a plastic card, then proceed to the open kitchen area to order their pasta, salad/antipasti, pizza and drinks, with each item charged to the card. The quality is generally high for the price.
