This is the best pizza place in the city. Owned and run by Italians. The pizzas are basic but flawless. Excellent crust! The lasagna is also excellent. A large pizza here is about $7, so it is also well priced!

We were at the Unicentro shopping, and when we got hungry we didn't want to eat at the chains there, so we found a pizza place nearby in Bolivariana, Opera Pizza. After a cab ride that ripped us off for $1.50USD (Strange, but he must really need it), we got there and sat down to order. The prices were very... More

The 2 waitress were really disgusting. They were making rude jokes in high volume, moving the furniture in a rude way too. The oldest waitress were constantly touching his nose and underwear. The "pizzaiolo" just took his time to finish eating his meal and consciously served the pizza 20min after the horrible pre-cooked 4 cheese ravioli served to my partner.... More

We eat here regularly and even after trying other pizza places across the city, Opera Pizza remains the best. The crust is perfectly thin and the ingredients high quality and fresh. The owners are from Italy and the service is so fast. Pizzas are done in about 5 mins and come to the table HOT. Look closely at the apron... More

When going to a 4+ rated pizzeria you expect something else. They are maybe good for Colombian standards since Pizza is not so common here, but don't expect quality toppings and flavorous recipes.. The so called "burrata" is a joke. At least assume what you're putting on pizza : canned mushrooms and grated cheese, nothing more. Big disappointment and quite... More

Guys, come on!! Almost 5 stars on TripAdvisor and more than 4,5 stars on Google for that? Really?! Don't fool customers please! Ok, pizza is not a typical columbia dish and I guess some of the toppings might be difficult to source too. That being said, I can't remember a more tasteless pizza, it was neither good or bad, just... More

We ordered pasta carbonar...ammmamazing...and the pizzas looked great.... Price...great...no too expensive no too cheap...is great for the taste. If you love paste...this is the place....one of the best.

Came here for a business meeting (the other people didn't turn up!) one afternoon. Very friendly staff, good service. Eventually I gave up on waiting for my colleagues and ordered. The starter was a nice variation on bruschetta. Very tasty. And the Pizza Capricciosa was extremely tasty - lovely thin base, tasty topping, and HUGE! But I finished it all... More

Hey, if you go there you are just expecting to eat something delicious, and that's what you get, you're not going to a five-star restaurant, you are going to a tiny Italian place that has the best price-quality relation. Just arrived from there and ordered the "delicioza", totally recommended.

Really lovely owner, nice atmosphere and with window seats upstairs. Pizza is better than most that you will find in Colombia (nice and thin!) and will cost you a lot less than in El Poblado. Still, not a restaurant to blow you away!
