After many years, my husband and I decided to return for happy hour on a late Monday afternoon. When we arrived, we noticed that there were just a few people at the bar area. The architecture is distinct and classic with marbled floors and other appointments from the 1920s. We chose a bar top and the bartender promptly offered us... More

Located close to the Convention Center. A little crowded but worth the wait. Very nice Italian food. Service was great. April will take care of you. Went for a business dinner, nice atmosphere, and a wide variety of Italian food. Pretty good wine list, fairly priced. The formaggi misti was excellent. All the pasta choices we chose were excellent. We... More

Fabulous food, wine and service, spoiled for choice there were so many great items on the menu. Reilly was really good and provided just the right balance in terms of service, his beer suggestion - an Oregan brew was spot on as was the Davies Pinot Noir! We'll be back!

I have eaten at L'Opera twice. My most recent visit was Feb 2015. The meal was superb. Our party was a group of 5 and the waiter worked with the kitchen so that each appetizer was served with enough quantity to accommodate all five diners. The waiter also selected the bottles of wine for our dinner and the wines that... More

This is the most elegant and romantic restaurant in the South Bay. The Italian dishes and exquisite wines remind us of our trips to Italy. The staff includes some of the nicest and kindness serving staff in southern California. I enjoy sharing L'Opera with my friends and family.

This old standby Italian resturant has survived 20+ years in Long Beach, CA. It is a rather formal restaurant for this "casual", "convention" & "cruise" destination city in Southern California. Therefore their longevity is due to its good food at slightly high price points but worthy. I have dined in this fine place many times so I thought I write... More

I went for dinner and had the butternut squash ravioli. They were kind of sweet and awesome at the same time. Hand made daily ravioli. The server was extremely knowledgeable. Very courteous. We had a group of about 10 people and everybody was pleased.

Need some work.....beautiful restaurant but with overworked servers who rushing around the restaurant which isn't indicative of of a great restaurant. I had a soup for starters and it was great, then came the mozzarella caprese and it was a joke.....tomatoes were pink, hard and inedible and were taken off the check. My pasta dish was housemade and was pretty... More
