The approach through the narrow alley with strong smells and dog droppings is not the best way to start the evening. Coming in from the other end is better! It is a neat, well designed restaurant with nice furniture and reasonable decor, though little atmosphere. The menu is fine, with a good choice of dishes. The wine list is good,... More

We love La Gondola! The restaurant is close to the center of town, but tucked away on a quiet side street. There are tables outside, but we always end up inside--- the interior is well designed and the tables and chairs are modern and beautifully crafted from local wood. We usually go for the homemade pasta, with a multitude of... More

This little Italian boutique restaurant is the hidden gem of Vientiane. My husband and I could not fault the service or the food of this magnificent little restaurant. Very reasonably priced and I would have to say amongst the best Italian food that we have ever eaten (and we have even been to Italy). The restaurant was very clean and... More

Located at the back of some shops down the side of an alley, isn't the place where you expect to find a high end Italian restaurant. It offers a large and varied menu with a variety of pizzas, pastas, risotto and meat dishes. They also offer an extensive wine list, and have indoor and outside seating. The Food service was...

Although La Gondola is in the centre of town, they are tucked away on a side street just off That Dam (Black Stupa) making the dining experience to be more relaxing. La Gondola has recently moved (June 2015) and now offers a lovely outdoor cafe setting as well as a more formal air conditioned dining room. They still offer the... More

I first visited La Gondola when it was situated in Chao Anou in a busy part of Vientiane's tourism belt and it became my favorite back then (2008 - 2012). The ambience was great; food was excellent and the wine list very good. I visited again early in 2015 and it had slipped. Now it's in a new venue, hidden... More

Hidden away at the end of a cul de sac the newly relocated Gondola restaurant in Vientiane is a wonderful find. Pieriugi Marcon the on site owner ensures perfection. The menu is extensive....predictably Italian of course .....offers a range of pastas, scalopinis and side dishes including delicious bruschetta. All very reasonably priced. One way to get to this restaurant for... More

OK, Bang in the centre of Vientiane is La Gondola restaurant and guesthouse situated adjacent to That Dam stupa and in close proximity to all you would wish to see. They have a lovely intimate tiled courtyard for al fresco dining and a 10 table inside air conditioned restaurant along with an inexpensive rental room guesthouse. The menu is Italian... More
