The food at Acqua is truly delicious. The pizza is out of this world and on par with the pizzas I ate in Italy. Great wine list also. I highly recommend this restaurant. Fantastic!

This was an unexpected and pleasurable discovery in Vientiane. Authentic Italian food most enjoyable. Owner's wine recommendation excellent. Not a cheap eat but worth the price. It is not a pizzeria.

Great Italian food especially the black pizza and profiteroles, the lunch special is great, and the weekend all you can order has some amazing small meals that are definitely worth a long lunch for.

You pay 98,000 kip per person for the buffet. We walked in around 12:30 pm. Looked like many people were already enjoying lunch there for quite a while so you can come earlier as well. They closed the buffet around 14:00 pm, but that may...More

Just after arriving in Laos, a friend took me here for the fix price lunch buffet. A much higher price by Laos standards, but worth every kip! Excellent and fresh foods, nice atmosphere, and great service. I recommend indoor reservations during the warmer seasons.
