beautiful restaurant,excellent service,fantastic singer but the food-what happened? Risotto too dry,dull vary sad Minestrone soup,water from the veggies in the veal You can eat so much better for far less,they want to charge $40 for some items,are they serious? A huge disappointment! Used to have good food!I Can't believe they want to compete with Michaels in Naples!

This was my first visit there. Went there for lunch with colleagues and ordered the lasagna. The texture and flavor of the dish were excellent. Unlike the usual heavy layers of ricotta and mozzarella, which I normally like, L'Opera had a different recipe, unlike any I've experienced before, whether in northern or southern Italy. Very light and tasty. The only... More

Everything about our dining experience at L'Opera was very, very nice. Tina was an outstanding server (I can usually find something a server could improve on--not in this case!) She didn't rush us (we were there with friends we wished to catch up with while drinking wine), made recommendations for both the food and wine (loved the Neyers blend--had two... More

Beautiful historic building houses L-Opera Ristorante. Great ambiance, good food and service. A bonus was a young man who sang in Italian a piece from an opera….I don't know Italian so I didn't know what opera it was from but he had a wonderful strong voice.

L'Opera is one of the better upscale restaurants near the Long Beach convention district, with excellent food, wine, service, and ambiance. Plan to eat here for lunch only if you have the time and appetite to truly enjoy it. The minestrone soup was chock full of vegetables and savory, and the house salad was refreshing and quite ample. The "Favorito"... More

We went here as a large group as part of a business conference, based on a recommendation from a local. Everyone in the group was thoroughly impressed with the food! I had probably the best caprese salad I have ever had outside of Italy, and the pasta was also delicious. I know everyone else had similar thoughts. The service was... More

We shared a lovely family (no children) birthday dinner at L'Opera restaurant. The servers were very helpful explaining the menu and making suggestions as some of our party had never eaten there before. One member of our family, who was also the birthday girl, is vegan and they were great about creating a special meal for her all the way... More
