“Tezza181”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

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 place running smoothly. If they're short-staffed or very busy he's prepared to pitch in himself. Good vibes. Great value and an experience to remember.

“The food worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

First time i went there for their buffet lunch. It's a great value for excellent Italian cuisine.
Second time i went for dinner. Expensive but really worth it. the tiramisu was REALLY good.
If you want some real quality food in touristy area, this place is the one.

“A taste of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

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 i did not try it. Can be much more expensive for meat eaters and wine drinkers.

“Excellent italian food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

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 - 14:00 from monday to friday) which at 68.000 kip / person was of excellent value. A vast choice of lasagne, pasta, salad and fresh vegetables, pizzas... and you get to order your own choice of pasta + sauce from the kitchen. The manager asked us several times if we wanted more pasta, which made us completely confortable with taking several servings from the buffet. Warning : it gets packed with businessmen after 12:30.
Overall the service is very attentive, professional and courteous.
We loved it and wished we could stay in Vientiane and go back again !
