Food was excellent. Service
Food was excellent. Service as well. However the website pix are a bit deceiving.. it looks like the main dining room is open and has windows onto the street....still, great food and wonderful music +vintage Sinatra and Ella.....I'd GI back again.

Had dinner with an old friend
Had dinner with an old friend who was in town on business. Place was a little loud, but otherwise was a great meal. Cozy ambiance ... and wonderful food. My friend had the papardelle noodles with short rib ragu -- the meat was some of the most tender and tasty I've ever had. I had the spaghetti carbonara -- which was DEFINITELY the best I've ever had, from the alfredo-peas-and-bacon sauce to the homemade pasta. Great place for a delicious meal and pleasant (though slightly cramped) surroundings.

Vodka sauce...too die for.
The shrimp and vodka penne is the best in the city!

We celebrated a birthday and
We celebrated a birthday and this was the perfect spot. The service was friendly and attentive, the wine list very nice and the food delicious.
Even the Italians in the group thought the meatballs and sauce were fantastic and the bread and desserts amazing. We all loved our entrees and thoroughly enjoyed the very generous portions.
I will dine here whenever I am in NYC.

First time at Coppola's West and will definitely will return. Hot antipasto was great. My mahi mahi over home made past was excellent. Wine list was good. Service was very good even though the restaurant was packed.

Little gem of a restaurant
We found this place through Google - the Zagat rating on the page said that the restaurant had a homey atmosphere and generous portions, which sounded perfect for us. Zagat was spot on. The food was delicious and the ambience was great. Recommended.

Top quality Italian for $$$ on UWS
Always top quality food @ this quaint UWS basement railroad Italian. The director's sister puts out the best meatballs on the UWS and their snapper is to die for. Have been a local neighborhood customer for 20+ years and can confirm its held up in quality. Their personal pizzas and calamari are really great..

An Italian Gem
Coppola's West is a great restaurant for supper on the Upper West Side. The menu is varied and service is excellent. The apple salad with a glass of wine is a favorite lunch. Highly recommend.

Great neighborhood find! Made a
Reservation and was promptly seated. Service was very good and bolognese was excellent!

We've eaten here several times & have never been disappointed. The red snapper was a delicious. Tiramisu yummy!

A West Side Gem
My fiancé and I absolutely love Coppola's. The food is consistently excellent regardless if you dine in or take out. I would highly recommend that everyone try the Clam and Mussel appetizer. The sauce in the bottom of the bowl is addictive with their house-made bread. Enjoy!

Food, variety and quality
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 .

A New Favorite in NYC
On my last trip to NYC, I discovered a restaurant across from my hotel, Coppola's West. The reviews on Yelp were mixed, but the staff at the hotel raved about it and being close, we went. I'm here to tell you that from the service to the food and ambience, it was a winner on all fronts. My party of 3, enjoyed each of our choices from the appetizer to the main course and of course dessert. I would strongly recommend it.

Looked for an Italian restaurant which served Gnocchi, and and found Coppola's (the Chef, not the Film Director). Was seated in the back, and was treated very nicely by everyone. The menu is a bit pricey (it's New York) but the serving sizes are just right. My daughter had the ravioli, and said it was the best she'd had. I also booked via Opentable, and glad I did, as the restaurant fills up fast.

Old time Italian hideaway
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.

Good food with generous portions.
I enjoyed my dinner at Coppola's and consider it one of the restaurants that I would return to.

We were late and they held our reservation, and when we arrived, we were pressed for time because we had only an hour for dinner because of theater tickets. The staff could not have been more accommodating, but we never felt rushed. The food was very good and the atmosphere was warm and traditional. Would recommend to friends.

Small neighborhood find
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 ..

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.

We try to eat here when ever
We try to eat here when ever we visit New York - the food is consistently good and we enjoy the atmosphere. Always excellent wine choices as well.

A Great Find!
I always make it a point when I'm in NYC to visit this neighborhood gem! The food, as well as the service, is outstanding!

Always good and reliable
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...

Great food and atmosphere!
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.
