My wife and I lived and worked in Manila in mid 70's and recently returned to catch up with old friends. As ever in the Philippines, these folks were hugely generous in extending all kinds of hospitality to us "returnees"/Balikbayan. On our final evening we invited 6 of them to dinner at L'Opera as a small way to say "thank... More

We were a party of ten, looking for a good dinner to close a hard-working day. Once you've been to Italy, you become extremely suspicious about the ubiquitous Italian restaurants all over the world. Well, this restaurant has exceeded my expectations, at least regarding their pasta and wine. They focus on Tuscany cuisine. As starter I had the Sardine in... More

The decor of the restaurant is very nice and more upscale making it good for business, a date, or friends getting together wanting a higher end restaurant.. Service is attentive and on top of things which makes for a good time. They seemed to pace the service well so you could eat quickly or leisurely without feeling rushed. While the... More

Walked in without reservations but they were able to find a table for us even if they were fully booked. The chef/owner made sure everything was fabulous:) Service was perfect.

Wished the cheese was sharper though. Also share the Cesar's Salad which was just okay. For mains my wife and I shared the Mushroom Ravioli and... More

Ate dinner on an early Saturday evening. Restaurant was nearly empty when we were seated but slowly started filling up. Food was good and the service equally pleasant. The risotto with seafood was quite good. Prices a tad bit more than warranted but still reasonable. I liked the place - I'll be back.

Being Italian I am very picky about my own country dishes. I have been here 2 times already and the pastas are really good, especially the one with tomato spicy sauce and with bolognaise sauce as well. I didn't try pizzas here, but pastas are really authentic. Service was OK, nice romantic ambiance, seat by the window...like in a real... More

Ran by a knowledgeable and professional Tuscan L'Opera sets the high benchmark for how an Italian restaurant should operate in Asia. With Sicilian, Tuscan or Napoli dishes all cooked with love casa linga, you feel like you are eating at and Italian family banquet rather than in a five star restaurant. Full marks to the owner. I highly recommend.
