Italian Charm in Saigon
Opera, the authentic trattoria-style Italian restaurant, is Park Hyatt Saigon’s dining room, offering a total sensory experience with a show kitchen that is sure to stimulate all five senses. With its distinct dining areas, Opera welcomes guests into a warm, bright and contemporary Italian setting with world-class service.
When it comes to Opera’s unparalleled commitment to excellence, it is essential to meet its Chef de Cuisine, Matteo Fracalossi, the mastermind behind Opera’s every innovative enhancement. Having spent nearly 20 years indulging in his passion for cooking, Matteo has worked at Villa Crespi, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant under the leadership of the famous Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo, before leading Opera with his utmost mission: creating an extraordinary journey for guests to discover the true taste of Italy.
“Whilst his techniques evolve around Italian cooking, Matteo’s culinary approach takes inspiration from contemporary art, to highly innovative dishes, using Mediterranean ingredients in each of his creations. Considered to serve the finest seafood buffet in Vietnam, Opera’s newest fare is its aspirational vision to not just offer a luxurious dining experience, but also allow guests to truly indulge in a feast for both the eyes and stomach.” – Heath Gordon, Executive Chef, Park Hyatt Saigon.
