    Pleasant but seated by large group of 10 who were loud so our party of 4 had a hard time to enjoy our chat.

    Our meal at L’Opera was excellent, as usual. Our server/sommelier, Scott, was a terrific host. We especially enjoyed his sense of humor. Every bite of our food was delicious.

    Great Italian spot in Long Beach that I’ve frequently dined at. They have gluten free options and can also accommodate families with food allergies. In addition, they have a great wine list to pair with your entrees.
