This is a gourmet place with prices to match. Quality, ambience and service is worth the price though. Food is very good and a full meny with daily specials include a great choice. Garden tables are great when the weather allows, but it is a great place to visit all year round. We keep going back and have never been... More

Friendly staff. Bar/waiting area is just the entrance hall, with a TVs and toilet entrance. Food is nice but lacks the details and finish you'd expect from a place like this and was somewhere in the middle ground between high end and traditional... Place crowded with lots of other restaurant choices. A good wine list helped the evening along. I'd... More

My husband and I had a lunch and we will never go back. A lady staff(over weight lady) at the entrance she didn't even say bonjour when we came in. The waitress was unfriendly and impolite. No apology for bringing a still water instead of sparkling water, not even changing a bottle. No a big deal "still or sparkling" if... More

Nice place to enjoy traditional and very good Italian food. We have been several times here and never disappointed about the food quality. Large nice wine list as well. Yet I am not a big fan of the decoration (old fashioned in my opinion... ).

We visited "l'Opera" to celebrate a few birthdays (3). The restaurant was chosen for the nice atmosphere, the friendly service and of course the good food, a big choice by the way. We sat at a nice table with enough space for us all. After sitting down our orders were taken and we were served the drinks. Shortly after we... More

I ate here with a number of co-workers. We all loved our meals. I had fish with Parmesan coating. It came with a couple of small sides. I had a salad as an appetizer and Cannoli for dessert. The fish and Cannoli were both exceptional. I did not have any of the wine, but my co-workers said it was very... More

Nicely located, the restaurant has good atmoshperics no matter the season or weather. I last went there for dinner with my family, and everything we had was remarkable. Every month the menu honors a different Italian province. Although quite on the upscale side, prices are reasonable. We did not experience any undue waiting time, and service was friendly and competent

Our group of had dinner there in the first week of June. I found it over priced, the portions were small and the lamb was tasteless. We tried to get sparkling water but could not manage to communicate this to the waitress so gave up and accepted the still water instead.

Now this is where Waterloo some bodies go for lunch. It's ok the staff are normally good. The food is pretentious and not particularly fabulous. It's pricey unless you do the business lunch. It's always full so maybe I'm missing something?
