"Reminds me of the small restaurants in Italy..
I had the mushroom ravioli which was delicious but very rich-better to split this between two or more people and order tapas style. My husband had the linguine with clams and he enjoyed it.
There were happy hour $5 specials for food and wine: we had the caprese salad with a very flavorful tomato for this time of year. The focaccia bread was warm and soft, perfect for sopping with olive oil and balsamic vinegar...
Menu has plenty of options and a wide array of wines to choose from with moderate pricing.
Great location if your going to the Balboa Theatre
or other nearby attractions.
I would definitely recommend Operacaffe! Delicioso!!!

"Very authentic Italian food in my opinion! Service was great, and the atmosphere was amazing. It's not a huge place, but it's define let one of those cozy Italian restaurants with great food/service. My mom and I got vongole pasta and seafood pasta (swapped the regular pasta noodle with squid ink ones) and they both were amazing!"

"Had dinner before "Beauty & the Beast" with my 15 yr old grand daughter. Excellent choice! She loved the Bolonaise! Restaurant is pleasant, service was attentive withoutbeing overbearing, truely Italian cafe style and not to stuffy for my girl."

"In the midst of seating us the host up and left to seat someone else. We just stood at the table that had not been wiped down and waited. Gave up and move to another table. Grabbed menus from the hostess stand because we were never given any. The host/waiter was NOT attentive but the busboy was. Food was great but on the expensive side."

"First, the food: I had the black pasta with seafood. I convinced one of my friends to have the same. Both of us agreed that the dish was perhaps the best restaurant dish we had ever had. My wife and our other friend had pasta with marinara sauce. How could that be good? My wife and our friend could not stop praising it -- the richness and depth of flavor in such a simple dish.
Then there was the service. We were there for a pre-theater dinner. Because of traffic, we got there very late. When we told them the problem, they assured us that they could handle it, and even though the restaurant was quite full, they came through as promised. Very professional.
Our only problem is that it is not close enough to our home to go there more often.
Superb!"

"Operacaffe is hands down my favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego. I love coming here at night and sitting on the outdoor patio. It's romantic and the food is absolute delicious. I love all of their pasta dishes. They're authentic and tasty. They also have a great wine list to chose from."

"We had a great dinner here before the theatre. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. A good place to go before the Civic, Balboa Theatre, or Symphony Hall, given the excellent location and food."

"Great little Italian gem set in the heart of the Gaslamp District. Located conveniently near our Westin Hotel, Operacaffe has a variety of scrumptious dishes to choose from. My party of three enjoyed sidewalk seating on an evening with wonderful weather. Hats off to the staff. Well done!"
