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.

Food is delicious, service is exemplary and the ambience is nice. It was an sold bank building with vaulted ceilings, turned into an Italian restaurant.

We were a group of 12. The sommelier was also our waiter. He had excellent suggestions for appetizers and starters which were served both individually and family style. The wine suggestions were outstanding. The sommelier asked about preferences and then made spot on recommendations based on our preferences and our budget. Everyone enjoyed their entrees which were prepared to perfection.... More

As a part of a conference, we and 200 others had dinner at L'Opera. Because of the large number of people, it is difficult to judge them fairly. They were quite organized and well prepared for us. The athmosphere was vibrant and wine selection very good. The food was a bit hit and miss - steaks were not great but... More

One of the better high-end restaurants I have been to in LA. An excellent wine selection and great food served by very knowledgeable and efficient staff. My filet was slightly over cooked but still excellent.

I attended a business lunch at L'Opera earlier this week and was very pleased. The pasta dish I had with crabmeat was quite tasty and everyone else really liked their meals. Service was good and water and ice tea were refilled very promptly. Best of all was the hostess, who was everything you would want your host/hostess to be, who... More
