L'Opera consistently and culinarily wins over audience, very similar to a long-running performance or Opera. It pleases on every note. Some weeks I enjoy lunch and dinner, on back-to-back days however the menu never is out-dated. The "Speciali Del Giorno" often includes a succulent Risotto Di Manzo. This Italian arborio (short-grain rice) was sautéed with tender, flavorful beef strips; asparagus... More

We had dinner with a large group at L'Opera. The upstairs was a lovel and inviting space, however unfortunately our group had dinner in the basement which was dark and a bit dingy with a funny old building smell. Service was great and the food served buffet style was tasty.

Amazing lasagna! The meat sauce and fresh chopped tomatoes the the spinach lasagna noodles were perfect. Nebiollo wine was the perfect complement. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine offerings. An excellent dining experience. By the way, the atmosphere was a 5-star!

The place looks great, the staff is incredible and the food is excellent. A bit pricey but worth it. This is definitely worth the time, and money. There is nothing bad to say.

We were downtown Long Beach the other day and were working up an appetite. I always thought L'Opera was an expensive restaurant, but their prices are fair, and their Happy Hour is great!! We just sat at the bar with two of the friendliest bartenders I have ever met! Miki and Ryan. Their Happy Hour is Mon-Fri, 3:30 - 6:00.... More

We had a large group as part of a meeting. Even though the menu we had was limited, the food was delicious. Great service and an excellent wine list.

We chose this restaurant for our 34th wedding anniversary. We made our reservations through Trip Advisor. They were waiting for us, made note of our anniversary. We got a good seat near the windows. Our server made some excellent recommendations that helped us make good choices for dinner. Halibut and Rack of Lamb were our two choices, both excellent, the... More
