Decent Place. Food mostly ok (clam chowder yuck) service good. – Atmosphere and table was fine. Flat bread was delicious. Cocktail way overpriced. My New England clam chowder was chewy and boring, FLAT. Two of our party had Halibut with broccolirab ravioli. Fish ok, ravioli excellent. I had Beef Braciole, which was basic home cooking, okay but not enough sauce- if I can make it just as well and 10% of price I am not impressed.. flan good, ricotta cheese cake very tasty. service good. I do not know NYC prices as I am from Philly, but some things expensive, and overall tab was pricey for value.
Don't know how we've missed out on this gem – Husband and I had dinner there last night. Very quiet as we went rather late. Service from Jackie and all her helpers was excellent. My husband had beef carpaccio and said it was the best he had ever had in his life. Very well presented and huge portion. A special smoked salmon pasta along with spaghetti carbonara were very tasty. All in all a very good experience. Looking forward to our next visit.
Editorial Review – Upper West Side location of the Gramercy Park favorite is a neighborhood must for Italian food lovers.
GREAT PIZZA AND ROMANTIC!!!! – This small romantic lil spot on the Upper West Side has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. Great Pizza as well as other classic Italian favorites. Not overpriced. Good Service.
Best tortellini – The tortellini daniella is the best! Great portions, great flavor. Truly authentic cuisine. Wait staff is courteous and knowledgeable. Good wine menu, and very good prices for midtown manhattan. Wait staff quickly brings foccacia bread to your table as soon as you sit down. The ambience is nice and it's an easy walk from the 1 train.
Cuisine may or may not be worth the agita – The food was very, very good. The ambience was reasonably nice, though with paper tablecloths. However the hostess was at best unprofessional, talking incessantly and loudly on her cell, and seating people only when she couldn't avoid it while the one waiter was handling eight tables alone with a fair amount of effort. One cook was handling the kitchen. Again, if you can handle the agita, the "as good as home-cooked by the ladies in the Italian neighborhood where I grew up" food was excellent.
Not your 16 year old's destination – uhhh...ok, so the last review was a bit irrelevant. Who would bring a 16 year old bday party to this romantic italian spot anyhow? So disregard the bitter soccer mom and read on...Coppola's is a warm cozy romantic spot or a spot for a small group of friends. The foccacia is served warm with mini olive oil decanters - to start. The place is filled with the aromas of the wood fired oven, very cozy. Service is non-intrusive and friendly. The penne is simple just how I like it. It really comes down to the sauce when determining the quality and Coppola's has the perfect blend of sweet fresh tomatoes. The chopped salad is the perfect start - to share. Could be a meal in itself. The minnestrone tastes like grandma's. That's all I got to say. We finished off with espresso and walked it off at the Whitney.
Clueless, Rude Wait Staff and Hostess! – I made a reservation for a party of 7, 24 hours in advance in person for my daughter's 16th birthday on a Saturday. When we arrived I had to approach the hostess for service. We were told the wait would only be 5 minutes. 25 minutes later we were still waiting, no reason or apologies given by the hostess. Instead, 4 members of the wait staff were giggling and carrying on at the corner of the bar. Add insult to injury, a party of 8 had arrived about 10 minutes after us and were seated in 5 minutes. I asked the hostess why we had not been seated yet despite making a reservation so far in advance. Response: "Well, too bad for you we are just too busy, so, you're just going to have to wait!" With that, I gathered my group and walked out.
WOW – The food was outstanding and affordable by any standard. What a wonderful ambiance which is quaint and charming. The staff was prompt and courteous. A true New York secret that needs to be told
WONDERFUL! – Coppola's is a wonderful little Italian joint--I moved back to the west coast from NYC a couple of years ago and lament almost daily the absence of a Coppola's where I am now. It's the first restaurant I intend to visit on my upcoming vacation to NYC.
