Eating keto at Vapiano: yes, it’s possible and it’s also very tasty.

Before my ketogenic life I used to visit Vapiano for a pizza or pasta. I often ate their salads, and I always loved them.

In this post you’ll discover every keto option you can have at Vapiano.

Vapiano is a chain: in every country, the concept and the menu are the same.

Depending on the day and location, some options cannot be available. This because the restaurant chain likes to use fresh products.

Are there keto options at Vapiano?

Vapiano doesn’t only offer pasta and pizza but has more. Some options on the menu are keto. Some, need a bit of work, meaning, ask the chef to remove or replace one ingredient or two.

This is the great thing of Vapiano: you order directly to the chef and you can instruct them how to change your meal.

In every table of Vapiano restaurants, you’ll have oil, spicy oil, salt, spices, and herbs. Use them to customize your meal.

Keto starters at Vapiano

Let’s start from the beginning, with antipasti, starters.

Here’s the choices according to the menu.

Caprese

Caprese is one of the dishes that are naturally keto! The ingredients: Mozzarella di bufala, cherry tomatoes, basil, rocket salad. They have also balsamic vinegar: skip it, and replace it with oil.

Carpaccio

Carpaccio is made with thinly sliced beef filet, rocket salad, and Grana Padano. There is also a Cipriani sauce. What’s Cipriani sauce? It’s a tuscan sauce made with tomatoes, mayonnaise and Parmesan. Per se, is not a sauce high in carbs. I have no idea how the one from Vapiano is done. Evaluate if you trust a small sauce or you want to cut it and replace it with oil.

Sauce or no sauce, this starter is extremely filling and ketogenic.

Piatto antipasti grande

This means literally: “big plate of starters”. And by the ingredients, I would say the name is well chosen.

Ham, Grana Padano cheese, grilled vegetables, green olives, basil pesto (with pine nuts) and buffalo mozzarella.
