La Traviata is opulent and ornate, a place where guests can lavishly celebrate the grandest of occasions. The restaurant’s décor pays homage to the style of the nineteenth-century opera house, with crystal chandeliers, sweeping silk drapes, high ceilings, and ornate inlaid wood.

But where homage to the past permeates the ambiance, the menu is refreshingly modern, an inspired blend of unique, novel creations such as Kumquat Coco Prawns and house-made smoked Duck Ravioli, peppered with fresh takes on Italian classics such as Porcini Risotto and Veal Scaloppini. Whether you come for the setting or the food, a visit to La Traviata promises to be as striking and memorable as a beautiful aria.

The reasonably priced wine list is especially strong on full-bodied Spanish reds like Tempranillo and Torre Oria.
