Looking for somewhere in Medellin with great food and at a low cost... Don't miss this! My husband and I don't like to re-visit places when we travel and live by the theory of trying something new all the time. No way! We will be back here every night we are here. Prosciutto pizza and lasagne is what we shared!... More

Maybe it's just that I don't like Colombian style pizza, but then neither would the Italians. This place is popular with the lower budget folks around Laureles, and the pizza is OK.

This is THE place to have authentic Italian-style pizza in Medellín. No wonder it´s always busy! The staff is not overly friendly, but hey, the food is great and the price is OK. It´s my favorite restaurant in Medellín!

Prices went up, service went down. As uncomfortable as ever. Apparently the chef opened a restaurant on his own (All´incontro) a few blocks away, near Mondongo´s.

Stopped by during the week and the upstairs was closed so the 5 of us sat outside in the front. We ordered 4 pies for 5 of us and we finished every bit of it. Good service at a fair price. I try to visit every time I am in town at least once.

Most people´s complaint about Colombia is the food. Opera pizza is run by Italians and in my opinion is one of the few restaurants in Medellin that has a real international taste. Pizzas are thin crust. Very reasonably priced.

Opera pizza at first glance appears to be a very basic pizzeria with tables and chairs reminiscent of the pizzerias you see in the United States. But the keys here are the food - very delicious freshly made to order pizzas, good prices, ie. dinner for two under USD$20 and they allow BYOB, so you can bring your favorite bottle... More

I was staying at an apartment near this place and was introduced to it in late 2010. I think I must have been here about 6 times so far. Its by far my favorite pizza joint in Laurelas. I say Laurelas because a buddy took me to a cool place in Sabaneta in October as well.

Love, love, love Pizza Opera, just off the main local drag of "La Setenta," (Metro stop: Estadio) This place serves up truly authentic (read: thin crust, fresh cheese, quality toppings) Italian pizza at reasonable prices. Their basic pizza is 8,000, ($4-5USD) their most fancy only 16,000. One pizza is 8 slices and was enough to fill me and my gf.... More
