Worth Every Penny – This place is really fantastic. Yes, it is a little pricier than most italians in the east village, but it is worth it. Every time I have gone it has been a memorable event. My girlfriend is a vegitarian and I am a carnivore, and we are both well catered to at I Coppi. The garden is very romantic as well. Come here for a special occassion or just for a night out... you will not be sorry!
Italian heaven – I Coppi is a crowd pleaser. I have brought older friends, younger friends, even my parents and all have enjoyed their meal immensely. The garden is beautiful and even good in the winter (heated and enclosed). The eggplant dish is to die for with a creamy bechamel sauce. The portions are not huge, but hey, this isn't the Olive garden. Their wine list is exhaustive and the service is friendly and informed. Not totally casual, but not dressy either. A perfect date place as well. Ask for the garden when making reservations.
"The Emperors New Clothes" – The absolute worst meal I have ever eaten and one of the most expensive!
The place itself along with our server was very charming and the Tuscan wine we ordered was notable. Our waitress was overly emphatic about the prowess of the kitchen the entire evening.
The bread and olive oil had zero flavor, my pasta was extremely bland, and the seafood was not fresh or prepared well. What's funny is that none of the four of us complained at all until we were together 6 months later- We all wanted to taste the subtle notes of flavor our server was describing in each dish but they just did not exist.
Maybe I was there on an off night, but I won't go back!
Terrific Restaurant – I Coppi is one of my favorite places in Manhattan. The food is spectacular (I recommend the pork loin), and the garden room makes for a lovely, romantic setting. This is the restaurant where I take out-of-town guests for a low-key, delicious meal.
Leaves you hungry – The pasta portions are ridiculously small for $16-18, even for a little girl! While food is good quality, prices are just too high for middle-of-the-line service and average decor. You can spend $25 per entree at a much fancier place. Last year the portions were more reasonable--is this their idea of cost cutting?
Plain and simple, just like nonna's! – This isn't complicated food. It's simple great tasting Tuscan food, the way it should be. The staff is super friendly, the outdoor garden is great and inside reminds me of my grandmother's home in Italy. Go with a small or large group...either way, GO! Si mangia bene :) Ciao!
Authentic Tuscan Cuisine – Fantastic cured meats, delicate home made pasta, an AMAZING wine list, wild boar, heavenly polenta!
All of this is a served in the most beautiful covered garden with the perfume of woodsmoke in the air, wafting from the open oven. You must try this place! So romantic!
WOW ! I Coppi is the best :) – I've been here twice - once as a twosome, and once with a group from work. I will be going back again and again and again.?. The food is wonderful, authentic Tuscan. The menu is limited in scope, but daily specials are interesting, and all the dishes I?ve tried were excellent. The wild boar and the bass with cherry tomatoes are a must. Great Tuscan wine list (but a wee bit over-priced at the lower end) with something for everyone. The staff are warm, friendly, helpful and, like everything about I Coppi, unpretentious. There is no music (thank you, I Coppi !), and the place is warm, homely, and inviting. It?s a restaurant for adults, but it has no attitude. I enjoyed I Coppi more than any other Italian I?ve been to in NYC and, indeed, more than most any restaurant in the city.
Best restaurant in New York – The best restaurant I can imagine. The service was great and the food was beyond belief. We were introduced to various olive oils by a woman that turned out to be the owner and head chef. She also visits with customers and makes sure everything is perfect. AND IT WAS. My wife had duck and I had a pasta special with oxtail in the sauce. They, the salads, appetizers, deserts, and desert wines are perfection. I cannot recommend a restaurant higher.
The Most Beautiful Garden in NYC – i Coppi has by far the most beautiful, romantic garden in NY. The food is okay--pastas are much better than anything else on the menu. The garden is the perfect setting for any romantic occaision!
