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.

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.
