A word from Coppola's West
Owner-Chef Salvatore Coppola"s training began at an early age. As the son of the Naples born parents Salvatore spent many hours in the kitchen learning to cook and refining the same Northern Italian recipes in both of his restaurants. Before opening Coppola's on 79th Street, Salvatore trained in New York City Restaurants quickly becoming Executive Sous Chef. In 1986, using family recipes opened Trattoria Coppola, which soon after became a staple for dining on New York's Upper West Side and earned him a 5 Star Diamond Award in 1997. In 1998 Salvatore opened his doors of Coppola's East in the Gramercy Park area of Manhattan to provide a more elegant style of his Northern Italian 'Comfort Food'.On any given night you may run into a number of New York's Resident or visiting celebrities at both of Salvatore's locations. In addition to fantastic food and comfortable dining, Salvatore establishment offers professional and knowledgeable service, extensive wine list, private room and catering.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is very family friendly, particularly before 8 pm. Since we eat early I don't know what the later crowd is like. The food is good, not outstanding, and it's just a comfortable place."

  • "Have been here numerous times and always order the same dish. Same for my husband. This time I tried the veal piccata in butter etc. I asked if it could be prepared with as little butter as possible. The waiter asked the kitchen and told me that was fine. The dish arrived, swimming in butter. The veal had a strange taste. Since my husband's dish was fine, I did not send mine back or I would be waiting for something else while he ate. This was a great disappointment to me as veal piccata is not that difficult of a dish to make. Be weary of the "special" wine offer. The wine was priced at $40 and the average price of the wine was $9.99. Most wine gets marked up anywhere from 2 or 2.5 - 3 times the cost in a wine store.."

  • "Very good food. We did think the service was a little unfriendly--maybe because we had our 11-year-old son with us and they didn't seem very family oriented (or just would have wished for more adults at the table and a bigger check)--but it was basically all right."

  • "Cioppino mentioned risotto in ingredients. A cioppino is a fish stew, not a risotto, so I asked. Was told it was a mistake. then told it used to be served on top linguine, now risotto. I asked if it were a risotto or a fish stew. definitely a stew was the reply. 70per cent fish. It was three pieces of fish filet on cooked rice (somewhat crispy from pan cooking) and two mussels, two shrimp, three clams. Sauce was equiv. to salad dressing, barely creating a film on bottom of dish. I asked for, received sauce/broth to add. Taste not bad, not cioppino however. Pasta carbonara tasted like no fresh ingredients were used, nor dairy. Pasta over cooked to mush dish overall. Olive oil was weakest I have ever tasted, possibly cut with vegetable oil."

  • "Really enjoyed the food, the place, and most of all, how accommodating they were with food for 2 kids in our table. Very good place."

  • "Classic brick-wall, red sauce UWS Italian. It never disappoints -- especially on a chilly night."

  • "The restaurant is very nice and cozy. We had a reservation for four people, and ended up bringing five and they still accommodated us. Excellent service. We had carpaccio and calamari as appetizers and we all loved the carpaccio, the arugula that came with it was very fresh. I had penne with vodka sauce, which tasted amazing with the right amount of tomato and cream. Someone else had the pork chop and they said it was the best they'd ever had before. The had quiet jazz music on, the atmosphere in general is very calm and enjoyable."

  • "We went there for a late New Year's Eve dinner. They had a prix fixe menu for $49.95, which was reasonable for the options offered. The restaurant markup on the wines was pretty typical and not excessive. The food was standard fare; nothing to rave about and nothing to complain about. The restaurant is small and the table are packed in as close as they could be so the restaurant was quite noisy. We have always had good service at this restaurant. Our waitress was properly attentive and made helpful comments when we asked her about the difference between the two ripassos on the wine list."

  • "We tried this restaurant for the first time on Saturday night. The food was very good and very authentic Italian (e.g., the red sauce tasted like it had been cooked forever with all the right ingredients). We were w our three kids who were welcomed and treated well ( they also behaved well which helps!). Everyone in my family would love to go back again some time!"

  • "I had not been here for many years. It has changed to the point where it does not resemble the neighborhood gem, with classy food that I loved. Food is decent, red sauce Italian, good but not great. Service could use some work. Drink orders should be taken asap. Bread should be put on the table asap. It was about 20 minutes before we had either. Despite the fact that they were not yet crowded. When I am in the mood for a good Eggplant Parmasian I probably will go back. The Linguini in White Clam Sauce was also not bad. They got very busy. Apparently other people like it more than I did. Judge for yourself."

  • "This was my second visit to Coppola's West. Made a point of returning this trip to once again enjoy the braised short ribs. Have recommended your restaurant to anyone I know who is going to NYC. Thanks again for a wonderful dining experience."

  • "My husband and I had a delicious, delightful dinner at Coppola's West. All food was perfectly prepared, the wait staff was nicely friendly, attentive but not overbearing. The restaurant felt comfortable enough to have a nice conversation without 'bothering' other diners. No one tried to hurry us. We left full and happy."

  • "Food was excellent! Our group had everything from spaghetti to seafood and we all were very pleased! Great service and great appetizers. Little crowded, but that added to the experience."

  • "I can't say much about the food here because my caeser salad and stuffed mushrooms were fine if uninspiring. What I can comment on is the noise level. It was a busy time on Friday night and I was delighted to find that Coppolas is a place where one can actually have a conversation without shouting across the table."

  • "Is this the best italian restaurant in NYC? No. However, the food is hearty and good and old fashioned and very reasonably priced. Nice warm environment, nice wait staff and food good. What more can one ask for? If you are looking for gourmet, move on. If you want a nice Italian meal at a reasonable price, go no further..."

  • "Coppola's west is always a "go to" place. We know we will get a very good meal with equally as good service. Also they are great at honoring reservations and special table requests."

  • "The place is cramped. Too many tables. The guy pouring water was all over me reaching across to my wife's glass. Dining is not a contact sport. The food was ok. I expected tablecloths based on a picture I saw. There were none. Must have been the East Side location. It makes a difference to me."

  • "A typically pocket-sized brownstone on theUWS, Coppola's West has done a great job of maximizing space and decor. They had a large group w/ children that night, but wouldn't recommend. It is*very* cosy. Service was very attentive,helpful and friendly. Wine by the glass was just ok; I didn't see the wine list. However, the food was amazing. The hands down winner was my home made Pappardelle with braised short ribs -- such short ribs! All home made pasta dishes were great and al dente, as was a seafood risotto which they happily substituted out shrimp for scallops. Opening salads: green apple, caprese and tri-colore were all great, dressing was perfect. Chocolate mousse pie was outstanding, flan just ok, but if that's the worst .."

  • "We happened upon this restaurant while staying across the street at the Lucerne. Wonderful serve, a charming open over pizza, fabulous bread, and a very good Italian meal. Unpretentious but delicious. We will definitely go back if we're in the neighborhood."

  • "Food, variety and quality is excellent . Bus boy service efficient . Our waiter and matre d lack in friendliness and customer service. The restaurant is small and cozy And the atmosphere would be greatly adhanced if the entire staff smiled and showed some enthusiasm. Then Coppola 's would be very special ."
