Some excellent, but a bit pricey, Italian food. Outstanding wine collection as well. I recommend the lunchtime (12-2) buffet, with salad bar, pizza and pasta. Outstanding desserts, esp the chocolate mousse. Go for it.

We have been travelling in Asia for two months and as others have mentioned it is nice to get a break from rice and noodle soup. I love thinly topped wood fired thin crust pizza so was looking forward to a treat. We noticed after our pizza arrived that other tables had a complimentary bread basket. We were never offered...

After eating at Aria twice I've tried some dishes ranging from good to great. One time I tried a variety of the entrees (appetisers) at a large gathering and many were delicious. The steak is delicious! The limoncello at the end is a nice touch

Went to Aria one lunchtime to enjoy the buffet, having spent plenty of time sampling the great Southeast Asian food. Aria provided a good selection of salad, some great pasta - both as part of the ready-made buffet and also as dishes that you can order from a specific menu. The pizza was fantastic too - always some there fresh... More

I was really surprised (and excited) to find a real Neapolitan pizzeria in Vientiane! It's very hard to find good pizza in Asia - most places cook American/Asian style pizza. I've been to Naples, I lived in Italy - I can confirm that Aria is offering proper, delicious pizzas! With super extensive wine list and home made pasta - it's... More

We had some really good lasagna here for a break from the local cuisine. It really hit the spot. The owner was also very sociable.

I have been here three times now and have always enjoyed the food, and the wine. The pizza is very good and the pasta is also wonderful - very authentic and you can tell it is homemade. I go there every time I go to Vientiane - it makes a lovely break from sticky rice (which I do also love).
