Enoteca L’Operetta

Starting from the UOB centre and along the Boat Quay stretch, you will find many pubs and seafood restaurants along the way. Right at the intersection between Boat Quay and South Bridge Road lies Enoteca L’Operetta, a classic chic and stylish Italian restaurant.

A step into Enoteca L’Operetta and we could immediately feel the sheer chic and classic design. With its white pastel based setting and the many black and white art pieces, this Italian restaurant was vastly different from its neighbouring dining places.

We were served with 2 slices of walnut baguette, together with butter and olive oil.

Quattro Formaggi ($30) – Our all-time favourite four-cheese pizza! With the addition of blue cheese, the pizza was noticeably more salty, stronger and richer in flavours. The crust edges were more puffed up and crispier. The inner regions of the crust were on the thin side and was more chewy than the edges.

Risotto Mantecato al Minuto nella Forma di Parmigiano ($28) – Homemade risotto tossed with classic Parmesan cheese cooked a la minute. The risotto was definitely the highlight of the meal! The risotto was first prepared in the kitchen. After which, the piping hot risotto was placed into a shallow and wide depression in a wheel of Parmesan cheese. Aided by the heat from the risotto, the server would then start scraping the cheese off the wheel. He would then continuously scrape and mix the cheese with the risotto. And finally, he divided the risotto into individual portions. The entire process left us amazed and utterly eager to start digging in. The risotto wasn’t fanciful or decorated with different flavours and toppings. It was a simple, absolutely divine cheese risotto – the ultimate risotto for cheese lovers. But do take note that the taste and aroma of the cheese is really very overwhelming. It was the first time we’ve seen such a presentation and it was truly an eye opener.

The serving staff were very polite and hospitable. They were very enthusiastic in ensuring that our dining experience was comfortable and enjoyable. They were very familiar with the menu and entertained us with their remarks and jokes. Service was impeccable, ambience was great and the food was delightful.
