“Outstanding. One of the best Pizzas - and not just in LP”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

The place is located in a non-touristy part of town. A small sign saying "Pizza" (and also containing some Lao letters) is the only hint for the restaurant, as it is situated in the back part of an English school. It's almost like the owner wanted to hide the place (he kind of did - we talked with him about it).

But enough with the jibber-jabber, let's talk about the pizza. There are about 5 pizzas in the menu - that's it. Some may find it non-diversified, we found it great, as it really makes your choice much more easy. The pizzas cost about 60,000 - 65,000 kips (about 7.5-8 USD).

We were hungry and shared one pizza, after which we weren't hungry anymore... We must say that it was one of the best pizzas we ate - around the world (and we visited Italy a few good times). When you see the stove outside and the owner taking personal care of each pizza - you understand why.

The atmosphere was very nice and romantic, with a Lao music played from a nearby building (don't think it was organized by the restaurant, but it was nice all the same).

The Canadian owner came to us to see that everything was okay and later we had a lovely conversation. He also gave my husband tips for his mother hopefully-to-be-bakery - they for sure will be further passed.

Bottom line, go and eat there - even if you don't have a special reason (like being a bit fed up with the Lao food...).

“Totally worth crossing the bridge”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

There's a small selection of pizzas, but they were all excellent, in particular the pepperoni and the bacon and onion. Owned by a really friendly Canadian guy who went out of his way to make our experience there enjoyable.

“A must do !!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Lovely atmosphere with classical jazz music.
The owner is also an english teacher. He is very friendly and gave us some nice advices and make us felt like if we where at home ( although we are from barcelona, not from usa)

Pizzas taste lovely ( 1 pizza for 2 is enough if not very very hungry).

A bit difficult to find in rain season ( cross the old bridge, first left, and at the end of the road there is a wat, on the right you will see a PIZZA sign. It's behind the english school :-). )

A nice thing to do if in luang prabang !!!!

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Didn't think it was going to live up to the hype. A little way out of town but our tuktuk driver knew where it was. Pizzas absolutely delicious, served hot out of wood burning oven. One of the best pizzas we have had anywhere in the world.
