My husband and I were just looking for a decent italian dessert within BGC area. As we entered in this establishment at 7pm, chef, waitress and a manager , were having some chat at the dining area. At first we thought they were not open yet but then they ran to their respective station when they see us. Resto was... More

The food was not bad at all, a bit on the pricey side. They tried very hard to 'Italianize' the decor, though maybe it's personal, but it turned out to be that of an the old Italy. I like my restaurants a bit contemporary without loosing its theme.

Service was excellent right from entering the door. Italian cuisine, and a great variety on the extensive menu. The Lapu Lapu was perfect with a lovely slightly spicy tomato puree which just topped it off. Everyone's meal came at the same time, always a good sign of a good restaurant and the service to come. Tiramasu was to die for... More

After our Mediterranean Flavors tour two weeks ago, my wife and I still had a hangover for Spanish and Italian food. To satisfy our craving, we decided to have lunch in arguably one of the best restaurants in Metro Manila serving Italian cuisine. L'Opera's interior is quite impressive, with its decor such as paintings and sculptures conveying the Italian theme.... More

Had a very disappointing experience - we usually go to its partner restaurant Balducci on High street, literally steps away. Have heard that the owners have somewhat better and more representative restaurant so wanted to give it a try -> not worth it! Coming to restaurant on Friday evening for dinner, only meal menu was provided with no drink list/wine... More

No doubt the location of the restaurant is prefect. Decor has good character. Impressive with the patrician for washroom is a piece of raw wood. This venue suppose to be a newly design but the aircon is cabinet type so cool air blow right the face. Food is very moderate. This is really unfortunate to have such nice decor when... More

This was my first time at the restaurant. We were sat in the larger room. I immediately smelled a foul odor . It seemed it was coming from the comfort rooms. We asked to be moved to the smaller room by the windows. This was much better , no odor. We were there about at 6:30pm. The staff was not... More

Although a bit pricey, the quality of the food here is excellent. The staff is very professional and the atmosphere is warm and inviting for a relaxing dinner. Very convenient location in a high end shopping district with plenty of parking.

I don't know why this restaurant isn't more full every night. It has very consistently good food. My favorites are the caprese salad, veal Milanese and pastas. I am never disappointed! Definitely top 2 italian restaurants in Manila!!!

There was nothing Italian about the restaurant except the name! Pros: 1) delicious watermelon fresh juice 2) nice outside sitting area 3) friendly staff Cons: 1) the cheese used for the pizza has nothing to do with Italian taste 2) no herbs 3) no oregano 4) nothing tasteful Won't return here again except for juices.
