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 left the restaurant feeling hungry.

This is my favourite restaurant in Waterloo. Service is very professional and always polite, English is a little issue but enough staff members can help ou. The language to order is well worth the food, excelent Italian cuisine. The setting is perfect for any occasion but always busy so reserve or get there early, around 7pm. The owner is usually...

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 you want to eat there on weekends.

Unfriendly service, unwelcoming, expensive just for the sake of it. Can't remember what we ate in June...so it was not memorable. Chose a good bottle of red.

This is a gourmet place with prices to match. Quality, ambience and service is worth the price though. Food is very good and a full meny with daily specials include a great choice. Garden tables are great when the weather allows, but it is a great place to visit all year round. We keep going back and have never been... More

Friendly staff. Bar/waiting area is just the entrance hall, with a TVs and toilet entrance. Food is nice but lacks the details and finish you'd expect from a place like this and was somewhere in the middle ground between high end and traditional... Place crowded with lots of other restaurant choices. A good wine list helped the evening along. I'd... More

My husband and I had a lunch and we will never go back. A lady staff(over weight lady) at the entrance she didn't even say bonjour when we came in. The waitress was unfriendly and impolite. No apology for bringing a still water instead of sparkling water, not even changing a bottle. No a big deal "still or sparkling" if... More

Nice place to enjoy traditional and very good Italian food. We have been several times here and never disappointed about the food quality. Large nice wine list as well. Yet I am not a big fan of the decoration (old fashioned in my opinion... ).

We visited "l'Opera" to celebrate a few birthdays (3). The restaurant was chosen for the nice atmosphere, the friendly service and of course the good food, a big choice by the way. We sat at a nice table with enough space for us all. After sitting down our orders were taken and we were served the drinks. Shortly after we... More

I ate here with a number of co-workers. We all loved our meals. I had fish with Parmesan coating. It came with a couple of small sides. I had a salad as an appetizer and Cannoli for dessert. The fish and Cannoli were both exceptional. I did not have any of the wine, but my co-workers said it was very... More
