Attended a business function with 12 people and treated to a wonderful meal at L'Opera. Very personable staff, nice atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed their food choices and appetizers. My sea bass was very tasty; the risotto looked really good too.

In an area of somewhat casual nightlife, it's nice to still be able to have a "dress up finer dining experience".

Late dinner and I didn’t want a huge meal. Chose prosciutto plate and was happily surprised. Added Opaque Petit Verdot for an excellent late dinner. Ristorante was located a few steps from Pine and Ocean.

L'Opera has an amazing staff and does have a private room for large groups. They will do an amazing job exceeding your expectations. (No I do not work there :-))

Reservations accepted for New Year's Eve with their own Opera Singer. The public street celebration, outside their doors, is separate and not associated with restaurant.
