thank you again for a fabulous meal6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoy eating here.We really enjoy eating here. The menu is always changing. This time, however, the service was very slow. Our server was nice, and informative, but we waited quite some time to order, and then waited a long time in between courses. She never returned once we paid our bill. Our meal was delicious, and we will definitely return.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMinattentive serviceInattentive service and quite difficult to catch anyone's eye to refill water. Nice balance of flavors in the mussels.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food / waiters, Goofy hostessThe food was typically top-notch, and the waiter Perry was helpful, playful and nice. But the gangly, oddly-dressed, (teenaged?) hostess would not seat our party until everyone had arrived. I get that at peak times restaurants don't allow two people to hold a table for five, but it was 6 pm on a weeknight, the place was half empty, yet instead of sitting down and having cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, we were made to wait in the chairs of shame, in front of the hostess desk until my sister and her kids got there. Needless formality enforced by a young woman who should not be empowered to make customer-impacting decisions (IMHO)5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper-Italian cuisineBest pizza and homemade pasta I've had on the peninsula. Salads were made with very fresh, local farm, ingredients. Excellent combination of ingredients in the pizzas and pastas.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentThe food has been consistently very good brought to us by a well trained and pleasant staff.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulThe food was delicious, and our waiter was delightful.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise levelWe were seated at a table for two far too close to a table with eight who became increasingly noisy to the point that we couldn't carry on a conversation. There was barely room for the waitress to squeeze between the back of one chair and the side of our table. We finally had to ask the people at the next table to lower the volume. This is not the first time that the noise level has been an issue....I feel the restaurant needs to figure out a better pattern of seating large groups and couples.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe're regulars at Coppa'sWe're regulars at Coppa's and find their food consistent. When
You feel like one of their signature pizza's and you can taste it
Before you arrive you won't be disappointed. Try the pancetta and chili
Peppers. It's yummy. The pastas are fresh seasoned to perfection
and served piping hot! It can be a little hectic in the Restaurant at
times and the noise level is up there.
Happy hour is also a nice experience as they have
Some nice bar tenders to serve you.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great service,Good food, great service, appropriate for both special occasion and can be 'kid-friendly' if timed right.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMa gem in San MateoWe San Franciscans sometimes assume all the really good restaurants are here in the City. Not so. Osteria Coppa, 20 miles south in the heart of San Mateo, is worth the trip. Homemade pasta and cured meats (salumi etc) are their claim to fame, but everything is delicious, from the contorni (vegetable side dishes) to the desserts. Reasonable prices, including on their iPad-presented wine list, and attentive, knowledgable service. The atmosphere is dignified but informal, a bit too noisy and crowded to rate as romantic perhaps. But you'll certainly be happy with the food.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the menuThe poached halibut was sensational. Strong supporting dinner items. Waiter was excellent; very knowledgeable of wines on the menu. Overtime he ambiance and noise level will improve. On a Thursday the place was packed; obviously people going for the food, and reasonable prices5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Brunch Menu ExtrordinaireThe Coppa chef presents such creative menu items that you want to sample them all. I'd like to see Coppa offer special day/event brunches. Not every weekend, just times when you want a highlight5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA special occasion brunchMother's Day 2013 may be the first time Osteria Coppa has offered brunch - it was a special pre fixe menu. The food was delicious and well-prepared and the service was excellent. They even gave moms a free glass of prosecco. They had a kid's menu with too much food (and few choices) for little ones - french toast and eggs and bacon and fruit. We will make this a special occasion place as the pre fixe was $35 for adults and $14.95 for kids. Loved the smoked trout salad with beets, the halibut with dungeness crab and a light lemon sauce for main and tiramisu for dessert. The duck hash was heavy and greasy and the burrata was nothing special.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy drinks and foodThey made me a special cocktail that wasn't even on the menu. The pizza was crispy and delicious. The mussels were so flavorful and perfectly cooked.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the salumi. TheWe enjoyed the salumi. The prix fix menu on Mondays is great. The desserts are delicious as well. We love the pasta and meat dishes.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. The serviceFood was great. The service started very well until it got busy. When you have to point your finger in the air to get the attention of our waiter, not the best. She had to many tables to wait on but was pleasant and appreciated our patience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA notch aboveThis is the first time we tried the pizza and salad. They were both excellent ( 2 different pizzas and 3 different salads). We will plan to return .5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly outstanding food andTruly outstanding food and reasonably priced, and organic food quality is sublime. All menu items are larger enough to share, including salads and pizzas.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, service & ambienceAnother wonderful evening at Osteria Coppa - I missed seeing the smoked trout salad on the menu and our fabulous server requested it and I got lucky, the chef had it available and made it for me, much appreciated and delicious. My companion had the beet salad and really enjoyed it as well. We both had the skirt steak - it was possibly the most tender cut of this meat I've ever eaten, and was great, served with creamy polenta and greens. We added an order of brussel sprouts to share, it was a wonderful meal and evening, at one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. We stayed late to talk and was never rushed, never felt we overstayed our welcome which was nice since they are so heavily booked. Wonderful food, service and ambience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLiked everything.althoughLiked everything.although When we walked in to give our name the hostess wasn't to friendly4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first time there and I'mMy first time there and I'm quite impressed. My only qualm is that is can feel somewhat crowded on a busy night due to the table's close proximity to each other. But that said, the service was spot on. The waiter brought us the pizza stand only to say "oops, too early" and took it back but did bring it back when the time was right. This was a good touch. Halibut tartare (awesome), House cured bacon pizza (wow, this is a treat), Pappardelle pasta (somewhat salty but tasty just the same) and squid salad (not on website menu, squid is grilled and is awesome!). Wine list is mostly Italian wines so ask for recommendations for the correct pairing. Corkage is available but their wine list seems substantial enough. All in all, worth the trip!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMStellarWe come here over and over . . . it never fails to thrill. We had the halibut, and how often can that be boring? But this had depth and soul, BIG bold vibrant flavors, so yummy I had it for breakfast the next day. The chef is insanely talented.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a business groupWent for a business group lunch. They have a wonderful lunch deal -- $12.95 per person. Food was wonderful and love the ambiance. There's a rustic charm to the place.

Cannelloni: Roasted Chicken, Wild Nettles was a nice combination. Ordered Vin Santo and bartender send over wrong dessert wine, at 18.00 that should not happen at any price.
