Ate here on a few occasions as it was conveniently straight opposite my hotel. French owned, you can sit in or outside the place. They have a large clay pizza oven with flames burning away inside. I ordered spicy Italian pizza on one occasion, thin crust and really beautiful. I also ordered the homemade Lasagne on two occasions, it was... More

This was possibly the BEST foreign food that I've ever been to in both Laos, and Vietnam. The owner is an Italian couple, in their mid 60s. They use a fire wood oven to bake the pizzas, and use the freshest ingredients to make their pastas. We had the pesto pasta, and 2 pizzas: Shrimp Pizza, and the Artichoke Pizza.... More

It is a very nice restaurant and bar where you can get various varieties of Pisa and the specialty of this restaurant is they prepare pizza in very big oven in front of you. There are variety of Italian pizzas, pastas, juices and shakes. Nice crowd can be seen here, I would like to go again

Via Via is a quirky but enjoyable little restaurant near the Mekong River in Vientiane, Laos. I have visited this gem on two occasions and I left both times with a smile on my face. The restaurant owners (Husband and wife team) are incredibly welcoming, warm, and friendly. They are genuine and kind hearted people with a passion for customer... More

I'm addicted to their Meat Lovers Pizza. Best Crust in town and very tasty. Will be back for several more!

Just was at the Via Via last night. Recently remodeled, nice and clean including newly remodeled washrooms. Pizza continues to be great. Good service, good prices. I think this place is always a must stop at. Don't know how it could get anything but good reviews. Thanks for the great experience!

We were staying in the Mixay guesthouse, so via via being just a few buildings down the road it was the obvious choice when the craving for some non Asian food came up. In short: I have no idea how so many people can write good reviews for this place, especially the pizza. We had two pizzas and they looked... More

Had lunch in Via Via on 2 occasions and both were amazing. The pizza (Meat lovers) is insane and the Pasta is to die for! The smoothie was fresh & delicious. Staff were lovely and prices and reasonable. Would recommend to anyone staying in city centre of Vientiane.
