Italian food for asian customers. It was very poor quality. If you eat in Italy cheap Tarttoria will be better as this restaurant. I don't understand how could be recommended by Tripadvisor as excellent. We have eat Ravioli di carne al tartufo, meat of Ravioli was a very low quality and tartufo ??? we have not smell and not taste.

The service was slow but compensate from a very nice view. I tasted several dishes but the pizza with wood oven was really nice. A particular touch of style was the wine menu and the Italian cigars. See you soon.

Fine dining at it's best. Choose the location outside beside the lake. Started with mouth watering cold cuts, choices of Italian premium dishes coupled with a bottle of red, that's a perfect meal! If you fancy Italian food, here is the place for you!

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.

On November 11th 2012, L'Opera Italian Restaurant & Bar celebrated its 15th anniversary hosting a celebratory party.

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.

The Restaurant can also organize cocktail functions and has three more intimate function rooms that can be reserved ahead of time as well as the following two options:

- The "Floating Cocktail Lounge", suspended on the Inya Lake can be enjoyed by up to eighteen guests

- A nice alternative, the romantic "Romeo & Juliet Balcony", overlooks the garden and the lake, with a
capacity of six guests. This is a favorite among couples in love, newlyweds, or anyone who would like
to dine all fresco during the rainy season.
