Nice Italian place

Its a cute little place in downtown San Mateo. Very close to Cal Train station. There is plenty of parking around. The servers were very nice.

I wasn't impressed with the food here. I've eaten at dozens of "Italian" restaurants and this one was nothing special. The name grabs your attention but the food is ordinary. My pasta dish had mint in it. Although it sounded intriguing, it was quite overwhelming and I was disapointed.

High quality Italian dishes, changing menu with fresh ingredients. Make a reservation, and give yourself plenty of time to park. This is a very popular restaurant, and well deserved.

The food here is typically very good, with nice wine and bar options as well. The pasta dishes and pizzas are reliably great. Some of the menu is seasonal. The food always seems very fresh, made-to-order - and the service is professional. When crowded (as it often is), the noise level can be high.

I think our great server, Shannon, made a difference for us. She was friendly, interactive and was able to generate interest in many of the menu items I wouldn't have initially considered. We enjoyed the rice balls appetizer, our salads, the cannelloni, the broccoli side dish and the delicious real sourdough bread. There was a nice ambiance and bar in... More

Consistently high quality ingredients and great flavor with all Pastas. Loved the baked cannelloni, super rich and delicious. Best pork shank I have had in years at separate visit. Never disappointed, excellent service without fuss and dessert specials you MUST make room for!

I went for lunch on New Year Day. I was happily surprised (vs. past experience) to see management accommodate friends requests for a smaller item. The waiter was pleasant and very thorough about checking what items such as sausage on pizza were gluten free. The restaurant also offers gluten free pasta and pizza. I had an excellent salad as part... More

The food at Coppa is amazing; we went for lunch and everything we had as great. Beautiful meats and cheeses; the seafood salad and butterscotch pudding are highlights. Service was charming and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

Have dined here three times with extended family including young kids; outside patio preferred, quieter. Food has been interesting and excellent; service attentive. I would go again. Parking in the area is the weakest link.

I find the food consistent good..but would great. The pizza and pasta are standouts at Coppa. Great location if you want a bite before the movies. Wonderful patio seating with the occasional train passing. Can be loud with families and small children. Food: Caesar salad is really good. The beet salad was split between 2 and it was so small.....
