Had the pasta with saffron and crab -- excellent flavor and pasta was made in-house. Something to note is that only 3-4 pastas on the menu are made on site, so that is a very minor ding to the rating. What was a bit more concerning was the lackadaisical approach our waiter took the entire time. It was a birthday... More

Went to this restaurant on a Friday evening. It was busy and clearly very popular. The Italian sausage pizza was very good, crispy base and very flavoursome. Spaghetti carbonara was freshly cooked and al dente. Would recommend the Malbec to go with the pizza. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Would definitely go again.

One of our favorite Italian restaurants in town. Love the Fettucine Carbonara and the meatballs. The wines are priced correctly so that is major pull for us.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Italy recently and have been trying to find some good Italian food since being back in Houston. We visited Coppa for the first time about a month ago and have already been back a couple more times! The food is fantastic! The burrata appetizer is very good. The margherita pizza is fantastic and very... More

I had a business lunch here today. The room is very nice and has a wine collar vibe. The staff was very good. The server was extremely attentive, energetic and knowledgable. I did not have a chance to peruse the wine list but noted they had a full bar. We started with the arancini. It was excellent. I had a... More

We were promptly greeted by a very enthusiastic waiter named Dennis, who provided consistently outstanding service throughout the meal. For me, great service is enough to keep me going back, but the food was also great. The caesar salad is actually authentic! The cocktail menu was different & fun. Great atmospere (we ate outside) and all was well! Ask for... More

The pasta is made fresh each day on site. the portions are not over-sized and the appetizers and desserts are unbelievable! Can't wait to get back to Houston and go again.

The Chef's name is Randy Evans, and her food is beyond awesome! She has put together some amazing dishes along with a killer wine list. She demands that her staff knows everything about every dish on the menu. And they do. We like to start with the burrata, which consists of this very creamy mozzarella that is almost like a... More

As a foodie, I’m pretty critical when it comes to my dining experiences. I had to write a review to commend Coppa on their amazing venue, service, and food. (I’ve already been back 4 times since my initial visit). On my first visit, I hosted a birthday party for my husband with 12 guests. The service was great. Our waiter... More
