Came in not expecting too much but were wowed with every dish that came out. They use imported Italian ingredients so the food tastes like it came from Italy. Salads are fresh, the pasta is cooked perfectly and the pizza is delicious.

We arrived in Vientiane in mid-March and were taken to Aria by family. What a surprise, as we had a very good meal, great service and good atmosphere. The steak dinner that I had was done to perfection. Tasty, tender, melt in your mouth!!!

The attraction to Aria was its airconditioning as the temperature was close to 40 degrees celcius. Had planned to eat at a French restaurant but were so glad we chose Aria. Only wished we had a larger appetite as there were so many nice choices....More

This is a very good and reasonably priced Italian restaurant. The decor, ambiance, and especially the service, as well as the food are all well done. The pastas are home-made and the sauces well cooked. The service is not matched anywhere in Vientiane. This is...More

If you're in need of some European food, Aria is great for a relaxed dinner. It's not a grand place, but the quality of the food, the reasonably priced wines (loads by the carafe) and the friendly and knowledgeable service made it one of our...More
