Pizza & Pasta at Vapiano

Vapiano, Sternengasse 19, 4051 Basel, Tel.  061 272 72 22

No bookings but a great buzz and fab fast food at this Basel branch of a Munich-based chain of Italian self-serve restaurants. Thin-crusted pizza with original toppings, great salads, house-made pastas and risottos all done to order. Interesting selection of wines by the glass (Italy, Spain, Balearics, South Africa among others) with samplings from the bar to aid your choice. Come late (1.30 for lunch, after 9 for dinner) and you’ve a better chance of finding a table.
