The L’Opera group of restaurants (and pizzeria and bars) are doing great things for Italian dining in Singapore. Pizzeria L’Operetta is one of only a handful of pizza joints with certification from the Neapolitan pizza regulatory body, the family’s osteria takes rustic Italian food and wine to magical places, the enoteca is an Italian oenophile’s heaven, and here at Trattoria L’Operetta, relaxed and refined Italian dining has arrived in Tanjong Katong. Book a table well in advance to enjoy a peerless, atmospheric trattoria-style dining experience.
We picked 2 antipasta and a pizza to share. The pizza was great, thin crust and ingredients went well. Yummy. Service was great too, staff were attentive. The ambience of the restaurant was relaxing and chill.
They have great pizza! Very good service. They got our pasta order wrong but quickly rectified it and were really apologetic. Tiramisu is heavenly. Try it! Decor is nice. Very homely and Italian feel.
Stepping into Trattoria L’Operetta’s Tanjong Katong Road premises is like entering a time-warp and a teleporter at the same time – you’re instantly transported away from Singapore to old Italy by the rustic, pleasantly shambolic decor before your attention is inevitably caught by the huge tiled pizza oven dominating the front of the restaurant. A similar piece of apparatus is what helped the L’Opera group’s Pizzeria L’Operetta gain certification from the body that works to maintain the authenticity of proper Neapolitan pizza, but here it’s uses are multitude. Sure, you can get your fill of bella Napoli pizza, but it’s the oven-baked Italian specialties that you’ll want to be ordering when you take your seats here.
Ask Trattoria L’Operetta’s endlessly accommodating wait staff for their recommendations when it comes to Italian cuisine al forno (from the oven), or turn to this relaxed Tanjong Katong restaurant’s fantastic selection of homemade pasta and gnocchi dishes, or the simple and traditional Parmesan cheese risotto. Grilled fish of the day, T-bone and rib eye steaks, Iberico pork and racks of lamb will have carnivores coming back for more, while Singapore diners with a sweet tooth will go mad for the (baked – that oven again) chocolate tart, the mixed galati platter, or classic tiramisu or panna cotta for dessert.
