“Recommended restaurant in Pacific Place, Jakarta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Opera Blanc is great for bringing groups. I've gone here several times with up to 10-12 people, and the service is quick and the staff is great. There's something to be said for a staff that remembers you, even if you only stop in 4-5 times a year.

The food is excellent. I'm a big fan of their 1 METER pizza, as well as the pasta....oh, and they are constantly refilling the bread plate!

I've eaten here at least 15 times and have never been disappointed. Food and service are consistently good, fairly priced. I've also had a lamb chop meal that was memorable but there aren't any dishes on the menu that I would rave about or be critical of. The wine list is quite cheap and the dessert list also something to be craved.

“Jakarta's best Italian resto! As long as imported ingredients continue to make a regular appearance...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

As one friend puts it, the best Italian food is in the States. In Jakarta, the equivalent would be this wonderful gem of a resto. My mother is a wonderfully talented cook who cooks dishes from various cultural backgrounds, and does not like to eat out for Italian. However, she will make an exception for Opera Blanc. We are regulars here. Usual order: Viva L'Italia pizza, Fettucine Opera (sans turkey bacon, extra mushrooms), the Fieno pasta dish, the olive pasta offering, and the tomato and cheese appetizer. This place has the best strawberry juice in town, and if you feel like going beyond the regular, ask for it mixed with the fresh OJ. While the desserts are just so-so, they have recently added new items (red velvet) to the usually short dessert list (tiramisu). As usual, restos dependent on imported goods sometimes experience a setback when the Customs Office starts tightening its grip, so if you are super picky be sure to call ahead of time to ask what imported ingredients are and are not available. The manager is very present, as I always see him at the restaurant (as well as at sister resto Sopra, found inside the same mall on the next floor up; Opera very much preferred despite Sopra's "snoot" factor). During the last fasting month, we did notice that the portions shrunk a bit and lesser ingredients made their unworthy mark on several of the dishes. Be forewarned those who do not smoke and do not like cigarette smoke: this resto allows smokers inside its air-conditioned, well-appointed yet dimly lit premises. Hopefully this will change with the expected stepped up enforcement of the regional smoking regulation come December 2013.
