Writing this is going to be a novel experience for me, as far as I remember I have never given a good review, I guess I'm more motivated by things to warn people about.
Coppa did everything really well.
I graduated from a french cooking school and could see the care and expertise that went in to the myriad decisions that Brian and Paola made about ingredients, wine list, staff, kitchen etc.
Brian is the co-owner and head chef, Paola is co-owner and pastry chef. They really live food and pay close attention to the minutiae.
We live in Cave Creek and had the opportunity to watch Kevin Binkley grow from local cook to James Beard nominee over years of development.
It is going to happen again with Brian and Paola, visit while is it still inexpensive (for the quality of ingredients).
Don't look for ambiance, Flagstaff is generally lacking that at least in contrast to Scottsdale etc. but if you're a foodie this place will make you smile.
