We had a wonderful evening at OperaViva. We went with the „discovery“ menu for 50 Euro and we enjoyed the variety of the food served. The staff was very friendly and the wine selection was great. We can definitely recommend this place!

So happy that we found this jewel. Situated in a quiet, residential area 5-10 mins away from the busy, noisy touristy centre, the restaurant clearly values its food, values and clients. We sat outside in a quiet square where a local jazz band played well...More

We tried this restaurant yesterday evening and it was an excellent surprise! A 40€ menu to discover atypical dishes far from the boring Parmigiana cuisine. A lot of research was put in the creation and the sommelier was perfect. Very professional service, attentive. The restaurant...More

Restaurant located in a beautiful corner of Parma from the Parisian atmosphere, our dishes are mainly fish and shellfish either raw or cooked, but there are proposals for land and vegetarian very interesting. We maintain a strong link with tradition but with the introduction of new and balanced interpretations. The raw materials used are fresh and in our menu are reported regular suppliers to ensure product traceability. The furniture, the colors, the seating and the atmosphere of the restaurant have been selected to provide maximum relaxation to customers and allow them to enjoy tasty meals Serve with refinement and wines from small producers with an excellent value for \ price .... we wait and we hope to satisfy you to the fullest.
