L'Opera has also been awarded as the top cleanest foreign restaurant by YDCD and was handed the award by Yangon's Mayor.
Its menu features homemade pastas, authentic wood-fired oven pizzas, Italian cold cuts and cheese, fresh salads, and many other local and imported ingredients. Under the guidance of an Italian Managing Director and an Italian Chef, meals are cooked with the use of only the freshest ingredients as well as quality dairy, imported meat and fish products, and extra virgin olive oil. L’Opera's authentic Italian cuisine is popular not only among expatriates and foreign visitors but also with Myanmar people.
Not to mention the magical atmosphere! L’Opera is idyllically situated in an old colonial building in the midst of manicured gardens on the romantic and enchanting Inya Lake. You can dine accompanied by the music of one of the greatest, if not the very best, Myanmar classic guitarist. In December 2012, L'Opera opened the first Italian Bakery in Myanmar. It is located at the entrance of the Restaurant compound and offers a variety of authentic Italian breads and baked goods.
L'Opera is an ideal place to organize parties or events. The large garden is perfect for any occasion, including dance parties, from November to March and the Restaurant offers catering services for up to 450 people, whether it is for a birthday, anniversary or a wedding.
As it is customary to say in Italian, "a presto", which means, "see you soon".
