After posting my review about our awful anniversary dinner at this place, including finding a piece of plastic bag in my husband's entree (a $200 meal by the way) the manager, whose name is Nicole I believe, wrote me a note of apology, and insisted they be given another chance to make it right and give us a special anniversary...

Dinner here, is incredible, time after time, or thyme after thyme. As every flavor - from herbs to succulent shrimp are tasted. Dining here, is a sybaritic experience to be savored. Every bite. It is a dining experience complete with live Opera; a separate bar area with a generous happy hour and an upscale menu. Sampling fresh grilled fish and... More

Business meeting in southern California and was very pleased with l'opera....A nice dinner house on the main drag in Long Beach. We were in a private dining room and served off PRI fixe menu and it was great. Good wine selection, bartender understood cocktails and food did not feel cookie cutter....Well done!

This restaurant is located on Pine Avenue in the vibrant downtown area. The food is excellent and the staff is attentive and friendly. My friends and I have eaten there once or twice every year in April and the staff remember us from year to year. You must visit when in the Long Beach area.

We found L'Opera Ristorante a few years ago while in town for the IndyCar Grand Prix of Long Beach. Convenient to the race circuit in downtown Long Beach. This is on our list for dinner every Sunday after the race. Clientele is mixture of racing folks and ordinary diners on this weekend. Service is always excellent and the food is... More

We are here during a business convention in Long Beach. It was within walking distance of our hotel. The decor was tasteful, the service was good and the food was delicious. (I had the lamb.) However, they have an opera singer come out and sing periodically which is pleasant UNLESS he is standing right next to your table. It was... More

Had a wonderful lunch at L'Opera Ristorante on March 29. The staff was very professional, service oriented, and friendly. I had the Cappelli Lombardi, which was off the charts delicious. Highly recommend this wonderful establishment!
