Coppa is a European-style cafe/bistro set amidst the mountains of Flagstaff serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. While northern Arizona might at first seem an unlikely dining destination for serious epicureans, Coppa Cafe's combination of talent and unconventional procurement methods have set the small, casual eatery atop the "can't miss" list of every discerning foodie from Phoenix to Santa Fe.

Choosing to go against the grain of the franchise and chain restaurants often found in smaller-town America, husband and wife owners and chefs Brian Konefal and Paola Fioravanti instead favor house-cured meats, ingredients locally procured from nearby farms and ranches and foraged foods found in the forests around Flagstaff to incorporate into their dishes. Though their procurement methods might seem unconventional for the region, their talents are rooted in tradition, following lifelong culinary careers spent crisscrossing Europe and the U.S., Training under the tutelage of some of the finest and most decorated chefs in their respective countries.

As Coppa's tagline states, the tiny, intimate venue offers "a taste of Europe in the mountains of Flagstaff," and the culinary team prides itself on providing just that through balancing local finds with progressive techniques, resulting in an unprecedented, sophisticated and pilgrimage-worthy experience.

Great find

What a wonderful find. A young chef who brings together great favors. I has the mussels they were light and full of flavor, my husband had the veal special, which introduced us to a new version of how to use celery root. Ambinace is lovely, food fantastic.

My wife and I popped in for a glass of wine and an appetizer before a concert. The size of the portions was frankly ridiculous. The whole experience was pretentious in the extreme. We consider ourselves sophisticated and well-travelled, and are acquainted with the concept of nouvelle cuisine - however, we both left totally dissatisfied and still hungry. If you... More

My husband said "are you sure about this?" In a strip mall, nothing to look at from the outside, but once inside we knew this was going to be good. Funky little place. The food is really good, today's soup was a parsnip with star anise oil and almonds which was amazingly delicious !

I live in Flagstaff and this is the restaurant that I always make sure to bring family and friends to. Lunch and dinner are amazing and the deserts always win local awards! The owners are classically trained and the menu options and flavors really showcase their talents. The restaurant itself is has such a unique atmosphere and there is a... More

This is located in a strip mall with a pizza place next door and a Chinese restaurant at the other end, so it can be a bit hard to locate. Look for the outdoor seating. Interior is mismatched chairs and tables, artsy objects, very fun. More to the point, the food is excellent, well prepared with fresh ingredients. The soup... More

We were in Phoenix on business and spent the day in Sedona hiking. On a whim we went to Flagstaff and dropped in to this casual bistro by random chance. Holy cow. This place served us one of the best meals we've ever had. Great albeit slim wine list. Local ingredients . Incredibly sophisticated and well thought out layering of... More

My husband and I are absolute foodies, and we LOVED this place. We shared everything, and tried several dishes. The tomato carpaccio was amazing! Even if you think you don't want it because it has some anchovies, give it a try. I promise you, you won't regret it. Next we had beef tartare which was one of the best tartares... More

Coppa Cafe is the best restaurant in Northern Arizona including Sedona. Everything is delicious. Service is wonderful. I dream of the lemon meringue tarts and the frites. The Halibut I had on one visit melted in mouth!!! If you are looking for truly good food lol no further!
