From Monday to Friday this upmarket restaurant offers the opportunity for anyone to eat a lunchtime buffet at only 68,000 kip. What makes the deal so extraordinary is the a la carte mini menu of pastas to choose from (about 9 different pasta dishes) on top of the pizza and other dishes you help yourself to at the buffet.

Not much impressed with this place. We wished we had read the outside menu before we sat down! It's three times the price of anywhere else in the surrounds and the worst part was the size of the portions. My ravioli dish was tasty, but the size of a starter, with five pieces of tiny ravioli and a bit of... More

Dear Customer thanks for your review, we have a standing menu outside so that all our customers can consult it and verify the price before decide to come inside and eat, as we use only Premium Imported Italian products we can't sell our food at the same price of the surrounded Lao Restaurant using only local products.

The setting is average and the air conditioning would need some professional readjustment to avoid catching a cold (we were seated along the wall) but that's where it ends. The service was fantastic, the food was cooked and presented to perfection and complimented with a lovely bottle of red from Italy. The owner, a lovely Lao lady and her (Italian)... More

I have been here a few times and tried many different dishes. The food here doesn't disappoint, the staff are efficient, knowledgeable and friendly and the atmosphere is always pleasant. Try the crab with lime dressing or pumpkin soup for starters and the lamb chops for main. The tiramisu is always very good. Highly recommended.

This has to be the best restaurant I have dined in this trip! Delicious, genuine Italian cuisine, because all the pasta is homemade, with the exception of the spaghetti. Competitive wine prices, along with attentive service, without being intrusive, all add up to a memorable dining experience. Pietro, the manager from Brescia, has managed restaurants before (Australia) and has this... More

Went for dinner yesterday. Had a simple green salad and tomato spaguettis. All fresh and delicious. Cherry on the cake: they had 3 sorbets (strawberry, mango and sweet lime), a rare treat for a vegan travelling through Asia. Plus: service was very good and I paid 120000 for my meal. They have an attractive varied buffet option for lunch but... More

We ate twice in this restaurant. The first time we were amazed by the quality of the pizza : the dough was absolutely fabulous and incredibly tasty, and the toppings were of top quality : excellent cheese and grilled marinated vegetables. We found them a little pricey, but no regrets ! The last time we tried the lunch buffet (11:30... More
