The pizza was average, and the price was good since they had promotion: Buy 1 get 1 free. So far so good. The bill ends up same as if they didn’t have a promotion: they overcharge for drinks!! Bogus:(

We wandered here from our hotel on a day drinking adventure and got the Burrata and meat plates while we kicked back some beers. The food blew me away. It is all imported weekly straight from Italy. Best cheese you will find in the city.

Had two for dinner one pizza so the price was acceptable. One pizza was good but the other was very sparse on toppings with a soggy base. The pasta didn’t look great so stick to the pizza but be careful what you choose.

We had the two for one pizza. The pizza description was not what arrived. There was very little pepperoni and the chilli non existent.

We went with friends. Our last visit was several years ago and we were rather disappointed by what we found. It is more like a pizza joint that a high class restaurant now. The furnishings are excellent, but the a la carte menu is limited...More

Aria is one of those gems in quaint Vientiane. We ordered linguini fruitti di mare, spaghetti pomodoro, 2 kinds of pizza and an appetizer. Besides its authentic Italian taste, we were pleasantly surprised with its special deals. A must-try for those who enjoy Italian cuisine.

Not the best Italian food that I have tasted but definitely not the worst. Service is average, just like the usual laid-back Laotian service staff and I would suggest to make orders from the a la carte menu and not indulge in the buffet offerings....More

Ate at this place twice during our stay in Vientiane - the pizza is the best we had during our travels in south east Asia. The service is very good and they have fantastic offers. Deserts are good and the restaurant has good decor. Highly...More

Both the pizza we ordered were salty. Could not finish them. Not worth visiting this place. Other dishes are priced too high.

Went for the lunch buffet, and in the words of a friend "it had bad service, dated decor, and the food was mediocre, but at least it was expensive!" Do not go. Nothing else to say
