This was our first time dining at L'Opera and we are so happy we chose this restaurant. Not only was the Italian food authentic and delicious but the wine list was exceptional and the service outstanding. We had such a great meal here before a show at the Long Beach Terrace. They were super attentive to our need to be on time but we never felt rushed. The lasagna was so good and a good size portion. My husband had the Osso Buco and said it was one of the best he's enjoyed. We enjoyed chatting about the wines with their sommelier and we are already planning to return!
Food and service was very good, ambiance is nice with business casual dress. Opera singer in the background was unexpected but fun.
The chicken lasagna was one of the best lasagna dishes I have had. Very friendly service. A bit concerned about the opera singer going around singing at each table (COVID) , but he was amazing. Highly recommend L’Opera for the food and ambiance.
Great all around
The dinner was with friends helping us to celebrate our 35th Anniversary.
Our waiter and staff were right on top of everything, offering suggestions, opinions etc.
Top notch experience ... as usual !!
Beautiful ambiance and amazing service. We came here for a birthday celebration and were not disappointed. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was excellent. Overall a wonderful experience!
Trotz Reservierung 30 Minuten Wartezeit.
Das geht gar nicht!
Elegant, efficient and delicious classic restaurant
The fried calamari was under-cooked and not hot or even very warm.
My husband and I just love this restaurant for a "pre-theater" dinner. We are ALWAYS served very quickly and able to enjoy our meal without rushing. The food is ALWAYS excellent.
This was a perfect place to have dinner before attending an event at the Terrace Theater. Park at the venue and walk to the restaurant. Delicious food and excellent service!
It was a lovely meal all around. Our server was fantastic and attentive, the food was great and the atmosphere pleasant. Could not of asked for a nicer meal
great food, services 👍 i love inside of the restaurant looks cool , love it
The food was amazing!! It was very crowded and the tables were extremely close, which made me slightly uncomfortable mid Covid. And zero privacy at your tables. But everyone was really nice.
Service, food and ambience were all fantastic. Would recommend. Will be back.
Amazing meal with top notch service. Loved it.
Our favorite Long Beach restaurant. Th never disappoint.
Thank you for making our friend's retirement dinner memorable. Thanks Riley for taking care of us and Sam for singing a perfect tone for the occasion. Josh & Richard
It was my husband’s birthday and everyone was very sweet surprising him with the cake we brought.
Elegant old-school Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Long Beach, with a varied menu of Italian favorites and an exceptional wine list. Our entrees were perfectly prepared and completely authentic. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
Great meal. Only weird thing was they were throwing someone out as we were walking in. They had us pause going in, but when the guy they threw out paused next to us, we quickly went inside as to not get in the middle of whatever was going on.
Always a favorite special occasion restaurant for my wife and me. One can always count on excellent food and service. Sommelier Scott Fisher has built an excellent wine list which includes some of the world's finest wines.
Great atmosphere and even better service. Loved our food. It's a great place to drink at the bar or have a special family dinner.
The ambiance was beautiful, the foos delicious and the service was excellent. We were all very pleased with our evening at La Opera.
Excellent From the waiter to the food! The extra touch of the man singing was amazing. I was hoping he’d come and sing at our table. (Next time. Lol). I’m so excited for my leftovers tonight and to go back.
We ordered the lasagne Pollo that was extremely salty. We sent it back and the manager was concerned so she went to taste it and confirmed it was oversalted. We waited over an hour to get our food only to be disappointed.
Ravioli with short ribs was great! I highly recommend it.
Food and service are terrific! It’s an expensive meal, but worth it.
It was our first visit since they reopened in June. As usual, the food was OUTSTANDING and our waiter was knowledgeable and very attentive.
The chioppino was so wonderfully delicious & well balanced with fish & seafood. The homemade fettuccini mouth watering!
Service, ambience and food were great. It was simply a bit cold because the AC vent was right underneath our feet and table
Awesome food and service every time.
Everything was perfect.
Wonderful service and restaurant. We will be back.
Proposed to my lady
She said yes
Wonderful dinner and drinks. Waiter is terrific!
We ll always return.
Best chicken lasagna anywhere. Great, consistent food. Been back a few times since COVID eased and they reopened indoor dining and it doesn’t disappoint.
