    Went with my lovely lady last night for our anniversary , it was our first time there and we were both excited to try it! It did not disappoint, the bread was immediately served as we sat down and that was the first sign that this place was going to be good, it was warm and mouth watering delicious… our server Josh was on it after we had stuffed down some bread he popped in with great energy and friendly vibes and brought our wine selection out pronto (Hess, Panthera) and the celebrating began. We both ordered Pollo Parmigiano and WOW it was scrumptious. Thinking about it as I write this is making my mouth water! The manager checked in on us to make sure everything was good , it was. At the end they blessed us up with some chocolate covered strawberries and lemoncello for our anniversary, but we still ordered the panna cotta and it also blew our minds. Great night - thanks L’Opera

    Always had great meals here. Tonight had the sausage app and the spaghetti tutti di mare and both were great. I recommend getting it with the spicy red sauce. They have a singer who rotates around the room taking requests. Great for a special occasion. Valet parking in front or paid parking lot across the street.

    I was disappointed in the Pasta Romana. It was dry and cold. I was enjoying my wine so much I didn’t say anything. The garlic taste was good. It just needed a little olive oil and to be heated up.
