Really great pizza, cooked in a traditional oven. Not much else to say except very tasty and definitely worth a visit if you are craving a break from Lao food

From a huge oven , within five minutes time come huge Napoli pizza's. Lots of Mozzarella and other ingrediënts. In my opinion how a pizza should be. Pricerange 8$. Seems like a place where many expats meet.

We checked this place out as we were staying opposite in the riverside palace hotel and the restaurant was packed (always a good sign). A had a great pizza and they were happy with me swapping some of the ingredients for others. Enjoyable meal

Typical Vientiane eatery! Open-air and crowded! Pizza oven and fresh juice making! Great place for pizza and other cross-cultural french -asian fares! Very efficient service and friendly staff…

We stumbled upon this place on our last night in Vientiane. We were intrigued when we saw that they have a built brick pizza oven. We had 2 pizzas and a fetta salad.. all were huge portions and good.. but i have to say there are better pizzas around town, not that this one was not good cause it really... More

The restaurant is located in a soi but very close to the main street. So it is not noisy and easy accessible. The food is mostly Italian as I noticed cooked in a big open oven. Music is nice and not too louder. So you can easily talk and enjoy your company. Not cheap. But maybe it is normal prices... More

Since we moved to Vientiane we've always been coming back for dinner. They have a real wood-fired pizza oven which means excellent pizza but can also mean, depending on the wind, that it can get hot and smokey inside. Just get a table outside and enjoy.

The place is great. Owned by a foreigner couple. They serve the best pizza. It is one of the best pizza I ever had in town. I like Via Via pizza and Via Via spaghetti. Price is not expensive. It is a fair price with a great taste of food. They provide loyalty card, get 10 stamps in your card... More
