Come va? Spero bene !
At VAPIANO Restaurant (near the corner of 18th and M St. NW) you'll receive a card to buy freshly made and delicious Italian entrees, pizza, and drinks. Each order will result in a card swipe that adds to your bill. Upon leaving the premises, you'll turn in your card at the cashier and pay.
"VAPIANO" is Italian slang for relaxing or kicking back, from the proverb "Chi va piano va sano e va lontano" -- Loosely: "Those who take life easy live long and well" ... and eat, drink, and SPEAK ITALIANO a VAPIANO !!!
