An Excellent EveningThe food and service was great. The evening was a quiet time to get together and unwind.
A very enjoyable experience.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad I gave it a second ChanceHave been one other time. Service lousy. Food nothing great. This time the service was excellant and the food good. Glad we tried it again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodFood was delicious and service was awesome. We were actually able to hold a conversation without screaming.
Enjoyed having opera sung through out the evening. THKS!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress was fabulousOur waitress was fabulous and the service terrific. We absolutely loved our starters/primi/dessert but were quite disappointed with the entrees after such delicious starters. The beef and eggplant ravioli were fabulous, the carpaccio special (with the sliced fennel) was outstanding, but the osso bucco was overcooked, and came with a huge portion of so-so risotto, and the eggplant parmesan, while good, came with an extremely salty marinara sauce (overbearingly salty). The panna cotta was delicious though. My only complaint would be that the entrees were extremely disappointing after the starters (in fact my husband barely ate his). Otherwise the other food was very very memorable (in a good way).6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely evening...very attentive, helovely evening, very attentive, helpful service, excellent food--fair prices6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always...fantastic!This is an all-around great restaurant.

Don't miss the Chocolate Sack of Zablagione and Fruit. Yum.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Went to this restaurant for Mother's Day and thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was delicious. We had a nice table which accommodated our large group and we were able to enjoy our meal and also there was a lady signing opera while we dined! Everyone loved it and we will definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Feast Fave!After having been to several restaurants for MOther's Day that offer minimum menus at sky high prices I was happy to see that L'Opera did the exact opposite. Their menu offered great food for adults & our 5 children ages 7-10. Feast included Filet Mignon, butternut squash soup, minestrone soup, veal piccata, Frutti Di Mare and other pasta dishes. All nine of us walked out of L'Opera happy due to the exceptional food and service we received. The chef even adjusted his recipe to satisfy our dietetic needs. Thank you to them for making Mother's Day 2013 a yummy and unforgettable experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner here for ourWe had dinner here for our anniversary. We had a lovely table, great food and service. I could barley here the music. Need to turn it up a little. Waitress was very helpful with suggestions. We enjoyed our dinner. It was great making the reservation's on line.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Euro delightThe service really enhanced the food ... by knowing the menu very well. "Tina" also was great with the wine list. Knowing which Pinot was more full bodied, etc. Tried the triple pasta for two - great selection. Fresh tastes. Not limited to Italian but that is obviously the heritage. Treated all guest equally we were in business mode and casual couple next to us were handled with equal courtesy. Does not always happen.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best places toOne of the best places to eat in the downtown area5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable Service, delicious food!The restaurant, on a Saturday evening at 6:30 was quiet - perfect atmosphere, beautiful decor and table settings. The service was amazing. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by smiling faces, to the minute we left and were bid goodnight - the staff at this restaurant were extremely attentive, professional, caring and friendly.
The food was delicious. My only complaint was the Lobster Ravioli, although tasty, the filling was a little too dry. But we all enjoyed our meals, drinks, appetizers, breads, the house Merlot was very good, and the desserts were perfection.
The Opera Singer was the icing on the cake - Excellent!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial TraditionsWe have dinner at L'Opera before attending the Long Beach Symphony and have found it a perfect setting for those special evenings.

I'll give them another shot.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to try L'OperaWe decided to try L'Opera after reading the recommendation of a trusted friend. It was great. We had a lovely meal, good wine and wonderful service that evening. We were only two that night but there were many families with multiple generations. The room is large and the ceilings high so even though I've mentioned that the noise level was Energetic, it was not so loud that you had to raise your voice or strain to hear. It was well managed. The portions are large and the food was delicious.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, The EggplantExcellent food, The Eggplant was incredible.

The food is wonderful, the service is special, and the atmosphere luxurious.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Long BeachThis is one of the real gems in Long Beach. When I'm in town, I always go there, and it just gets better and better. Love this restaurant. The service is outstanding. The prices very reasonable. The food is excellent. The bread is to die for. And the minestrone soup is fabulous--and vegan. And they are very flexible. If you want something made a special way, ask. I've never had them not do it.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and a greatGreat service and a great menu with refreshing and new dishes to choose from. We will go back!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been going to L'OperaWe have been going to L'Opera for at least 10 years. It was great when it started, slipped a bit in the food, and now is back with very good food. We were pleased to see the transition back to their roots and creating very good food. Two nitpicks though: (1) the food was a little slow coming out; and (2) the fixed prixe dish that our friend had was reduced portions of each. If you are going to do a fixed price -- give the regular size portions. Overall, good night and we will be back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a disappointment atNever a disappointment at La Opera. Incredible food, wonderful and attentive staff (without being too attentive). What I especially like is how they will modify their menu for your tastes. Never a problem.
also, they keep their staff around so it's nice when they remember you.
Great New Years Eve dinner too~ right in the heart of Pine Avenue - very happening.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAs Good the 10th Time as the 1stI have eaten at L'Opera many times and every time is a wonderful experience. Andrew was our server and he is gracious and and fun. Alex was behind the bar and he makes incredible Bellinis. The food was amazing as always and the valet service is very fast and they are very respectful of your car. At one point a guest in our party asked for orange juice and when Andrew found that there wasn't any available he grabbed oranges and squeezed fresh juice for us. I highly recommend this restaurant and can't say enough nice things about the professionals work there.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
