L'Opera Ristorantein Downtown Long Beach

Owner Terry Antonelli believes in a warm yet elegant approach to the 5 star award winning dining experience that has been the staple of L'Opera's lasting success since 1990. The timeless interiors match the old world "Italian Charm" with all the modern comforts of a new world creativity. L'Opera favors attentive and comfortable service, or as Zagat said, "Bend over backward service... L'Opera really hits the mark with a spectacular wine list and over the top Italian cuisine."

ClassicInterior Design

L'Opera restaurant was established in August of 1988and after 2 years of design and transformation opened for business on a Thursday afternoon in April of 1990. L'Opera is located on Pine Avenue in one of Long Beach's most famous historical landmarks that began life in 1906 as the First National Bank of Long Beach. The building is simply known as one of the most beautiful structures in Long Beach and is called by locals the "L'Opera Building." The award winning design features a complete restoration of the original ceilings accented by a series of marble columns that sit handsomely on the mahogany hardwood flooring throughout the Main Dining Room. The restaurant is richly adorned by etched beveled glass and granite throughout, featuring a modern exhibition kitchen. The basement level consists of The Wine Cellar & La Scala, our two beautiful private dining rooms.
