Great Italian food, nice wine ... and superb staff. We strongly advice a visit to this Italian restaurant. We also really appreciate the (valet) parking for our Italian Bulls ;)

We enjoyed a great night at L'Opera. The staff were utterly charming and the food outstanding. Sitting outside on the terrace, under the awning while a storm raged was unforgettable.

Great Italian food. If you want to go during the weekend, either come rather early or reserve a table.

Don't understand why this place is rated so high. Food is very average. For that kind of money I have eaten much better. I took the coquilles st jacques. Very weird combination, it was served with Bearnaise... due to the very small portion, we acually...More

Food was really good and as authentic as what you would find in Italy. This is a fairly classy restaurant, so the prices are a bit higher than average, but overall I thought it is worth it. Make sure to book in advance, especially if...More
