Luxury Redefinition Project continues at Park Hyatt Saigon. We are pleased to announce the renovation of Opera restaurant starting from June 2017. A brand new luxury dining experience is coming soon! Learn more.


Overlooking the Opera House, Opera welcomes you to a friendly and casual trattoria dining place. Inspired by Italy’s hearty cuisine, Opera specialises in authentic pizza made fresh from a wood-fired oven, with pasta and homemade Italian dishes prepared from one large open kitchen. Every month, Chef Matteo will take you on an extraordinary journey to a beautiful region in Italy to discover its signature flavors.


This Saigon Italian restaurant is known for its impressive breakfast menu featuring comforting Continental-style items, enhanced with regional delicacies and a delightful local touch of the warm fragrant “pho”- the Vietnamese well-loved noodle soup. You can also discover Sunday Brunch with an extravagance of Italian flavors, seafood, pasta, roasted meats and delightful desserts.

Chef Matteo Fracalossi

Coming from Trento in Northern Italy, Chef Matteo had his first experience in the kitchen in 1996 and has spent nearly 20 years indulging in his passion for cooking.


He trained and improved himself by working at Villa Crespi, a two Michelin-star restaurant under the leadership of the famous chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo. Five years in this celebrated kitchen equipped Chef Matteo with the necessary skills and experience to move on to the next step of his career. Chef Matteo then moved to several five-star restaurants in Rome, Venice, Milano, Moscow and Doha where he had the chance to constantly innovate and challenge himself.


“Moving to Ho Chi Minh City is great. I am so happy to have an opportunity to work in Vietnam and believe that this is going to be a wonderful chapter in my life,” Chef Matteo said.


Chef Matteo will take guests on an extraordinary journey to discover the true taste of Italy.
