My boyfriend and I went to NOTL this past weekend an stayed in St. Catharines. We went to Coppola's because of the ratings here on trip advisor. The server was very friendly.
We ordered the gnocchi with the mushrooms and white cream sauce as an appetizer. I had the rack of lamb, my boyfriend had the 12 oz new york strip on special that night. The gnocchi was just delicious, and the house salad was crisp and the dressing was not overpowering. The bread brought to the table wasn't very good so we left that.
The lamb was absolutely fantastic, juicy and perfectly cooked a medium rare and the plate was beautiful. It was served with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables on the side. The potatoes were tasty and the vegetables were a good assortment and fresh, not the lame selection some restaurants offer. My plate had so much food on it and i ate all of it.
My boyfriend enjoyed his steak, it also came with mashed potatoes and veggies. It was cooked to his liking, a medium rare. He polished off the whole steak and usually he is picky about meat.
For dessert we ordered the creme brulee and the dark chocolate cake. Neither were overly sweet and they the perfect end to the meal.
Overall the atmosphere was lovely for dinner, very cozy and romantic, the server was great and the food was spectacular. By far the best dinner we've had in a long time. If you are in the area, don't hesitate to visit!
