International Italian group Vapiano has opened its first UK restaurant outside of London.
The group which is famed for it’s freshly made pizza dough, pasta and salads alongside the best buffalo mozzarella, meats and cheeses has set up shop in the newly revitalised Corn Exchange.
The 400 cover restaurant spans two floors and boast a 100-year-old olive tree and fresh live herbs on the tables. It will offers Manchester’s diners a unique concept as the restaurant is self-service with guests enjoying face-to-face interactions with chefs as they cook their dish to order, just how they like it.
Guests order and pay using a smart card system - one per customer - meaning everyone pays for what they order, avoiding the need for tricky bill splitting at the end of the meal.
