What a great place to hold an office lunch party for the holidays. This is the second year that we chose this location. We selected the menu and every step of the way service was impeccable. We brought our own wines in, paid the corking fee, and were so happy with the overall approach. Our choices were beef medallions, vegetarian... More

I'm Asian but love Italian food. I tried L'Opera for lunch. And boy was I right! The best caprese (burrata chese). I could eat that cheese forever. The breads in different types (soft rolls, flat crunchy and crunchy sticks) were a perfect match with the pesto. Then came this massive steak, cooked to a perfect medium with gorgonzola and crunchy... More

This is an up scale restaurant and bar. It is a little more expensive but what a great selection of wines, food and ambience.

There are restaurants that are OK, good, very good and even excellent. Based on our first time experience for lunch I say this restaurant is exceptional. My wife and I split a salad and had two pasta dishes. The ravioli and the lasagna where " the best". From start to finish perfect.

Normally large group meals are okay to disappointing but we were really impressed by the quality and flavors of our dinner. L'Opera served about 120 on a Sunday night with the restaurant filled to capacity in other rooms. Every aspect of the meal was great- from preparation and flavor to temperature. The staff was never flustered and handled the group... More

We were told that this was the finest Italian restaurant in Long Beach but would beg to differ. We went to the L'Opera as a tour group & the salad starter was basically a plate of green leaves ( Mainly the tougher lettuce leaves ) & one very small tomato. The lasagne that I ordered came & completely filled the... More

La Opera has a great atmosphere, with it's corner street location and window views of all sides of the street. The staff is very efficient and professional, especially the hostess Madeline, who always greeted me each time I came in my week's stay in Long Beach with a smile and kindness. I sat at the bar waiting for my dinner... More

L'Opera is where we go for unique creative delicious dishes and divine desserts! The service is super friendly, but not pushy. This is fine dining, so dress nice and bring your credit card.
