We recently enjoyed dinner at Coppa. This was a fantastic meal. We shared: marinated button mushrooms; beef heart pastrami crostini with harissa; wood oven roast meatballs with tomato gravy; insalata estiva (lettuces, grape-caper dressing, sunchokes, cucumbers, seared sugar snap peas, bianco sardo); rigatoni con sugo (with port sugo, cabbage, sage and parmesan); and a white pizza with peekytoe crab, shishito...

If love gourmet food and drinks, but don't want to get all dressed up, this place is for you. We can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Food is fresh and truly spectacular, the hand crafted cocktails were amazing and wine list very nice. Our server was knowledgeable and checked on us frequently. I wouldn't change a thing about...

If you are a picky eater you might not like it-- it's small plates with enough unrecognizable ingredients that could make a person cautious. But it's all delicious and the servers can guide you based on what you like. It's italian so there's pizza/pasta options. The cocktails and wine list are fantastic, it's small and romantic and when the weather... More

We went in on a Sunday at 4:30. Their brunch menu ended at 3 pm (there is only a handful of items avaliable after that time) and dinner menu starts at 5 pm. Since there were so few items we asked to see a dinner menu and they refused. Not good service for only half hour difference.

We had the bone marrow & beef heart pastrami pizza as well as the sweetbread & nettle stuffed ravioli in brown butter. Both were outstanding!

We enjoyed sitting outdoors on a beautiful sunday evening. The five of us made serious work of the Italian style tapas. We collectively agreed that not one of the plates was merely mediocre. Rather, every single one of them held their own as a fantastic dish. Excellent!

My husband has been raving about this place for years. I finally got to go, and believe me the hype is factual. This place was amazing! I was so happy we had reservations because I would have been sorely disappointed to wait for my food. We started out with a small cheese selection, all of which were wonderful! We then... More

Had dinner here on a Sunday night with friends. The restaurant itself is small and charming. The waiter we had was good, helpful but not annoying. We enjoyed a variety of dished. My favourite were the meatballs, arancini and the pizza. Someone seated next to me had the panini that was loaded with mortadella and provolone, it looked so delicious... More

We didn't have reservations but we were seated quickly. The service was great...I even told the waitress to choose 3 of the cheeses and all were great! I wasn't impressed with the gnocchi, so that's why I am giving an average rating. I would come back here for drinks and cheese/meats, but not for entrees...
