L'Opera lives up to its name, complete with strolling singers. Elegant dining with Italian specialties in a central downtown location. L'Opera focuses on atmosphere and service; the portions are sumptuous; the pasta is fresh, made on premise.

I don’t often leave comments... The place looked good but Worst Italian dining experience!! Don’t think that the chef has a clue what Italian cuisine is... a part from the bread, the service was good. Food was absolutely horrible... bruschetta was more like french toast...More

This is a lovely restaurant! The food is grand and the bread is freshly baked. The rack of lamb was delicious. Almost hate to be heading home tomorrow...it's the kind of place worth eating two or three times even on a short trip.

We went to this restaurant for our anniversary. The ambience and service were very good. My husband really liked both his first course salad and his main course, chicken parmesan. First my cocktail, a pomegranate martini,was mediocre. Then my soup, which was billed as Vegan,...More

L'Opera Ristorante is one of our favorite Long beach Italian restaurants because the flavor of the dishes and fresh baked bread takes us back to our travels in Florence Italy. Don't be intimidated by the regal appearance and fine dining atmosphere, the table service is...More

L'Opera has an amazing staff and does have a private room for large groups. They will do an amazing job exceeding your expectations. (No I do not work there :-))

Reservations accepted for New Year's Eve with their own Opera Singer. The public street celebration, outside their doors, is separate and not associated with restaurant.
