What more can be said about L'Opera that hasn't been already by the many satisfied reviewers? I just want to add my recommendation too. The food is very good, the setting by the lake marvelous and the staff the best and most knowledgeable I've encountered...anywhere in Southeast Asia, perhaps, the world. Remarkable to find them in Yangon. You would be crazy not to eat there if you have the chance.More

We had a lunch one day in February. It was so good, we went back for dinner later that month. The food is sensational and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this restaurant. The location by the lake is superb.

This is the Italian restaurant run by Italians in one of the outskirts of Yangon. The menu list ticks all off all the usual (Italian ) suspects, pizza, pasta etc. We sat outside, in the garden which is pleasant in beginning of February. We had...Linguine alle Vongole Veraci which was fine, but a bit bland. I was surprised to see that the menu came with prices labelled in USD in Myanmar. The website lists prices in local currency but I needed to pay in US currency and to change my Burmese kyat in USD. Probably it stands out in Yangon, but I would like to challenge the owners to not to rest on their laurels but try to match the originality, depth , and finesse of comparable restaurants in Italy.More

We had a meeting with burmese colleges for a dinner We ordered Antipasti misti for more than 20 $ per person and get only prosciutto crudo e cotto ( a good quality) but nothing more. No vegetables at all. The pasta was too fat and...creamy and the pizza too soft and not crispy. We wouldn't return.More

Beautiful outdoor seating, most delicious soup and pasta. We were so happy to have this experience after eating delicious Asian food for a month. Don't miss this place when you come to Myanmar. Gracious staff and wine list is superb.

There weren't many other customers when we went for dinner at L'Opera, perhaps the monsoon is keeping people at home. But we had a really great evening. The wine was superb, the guitar player set the right mood and the food was a hit. Thank...you!More

Run by two generations of the charming Fedeli family, this Italian restaurant is a firm favorite in the Yangon dining scene. It's large, palm-shaded lakeside garden is a fabulous haven from the traffic and bustle of Yangon, and the varied menu offers Italian fare prepared...with care and attention to detail. The service is friendly and professional and you will probably have Giorgio Fedeli drop by your table to see how everything is. The family are all tennis-mad, and they have a court in one part of the garden so if you're having lunch you might hear the thwack of tennis balls nearby.More

Location is at its best. You will feel like you are in separate world after you step in the compound. Nice fine dining place with quite a variety of food choice. Beverages are plenty too. However, please do consider the price.
