The Menu - Opera Italian Restaurant In Romford


Simple, freshly prepared Italian cuisine


At Opera, we love to place a serious emphasis on the freshness and high quality of our ingredients. Everything that can be made in house at our Italian restaurant in Romford, normally is, and you’ll be able to taste the difference when you sample our warm focaccia bread or our fresh spaghetti.

For the less adventurous at our restaurant, we feature simple yet delicious options such as ribeye lamb, duck and salmon with only a hint of Italian influence.

Our menu also includes vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

To accompany your meal we offer a range of fine wines from around the world from Italy to Argentina, to France to Chile. Alternatively, pick from our range of classic cocktails and watch as they are prepared at our beautiful bar.
