Dining al fresco
We sat outside for dinner on Thursday night - very nice what they've done to make it comfortable, equipped with heating and walls so there's no wind, we enjoyed the night air, the casual atmosphere and had a great time! it was a nice change from sitting inside, less noisy and more casual. One of the specials was the bigoli - utterly sumptuos, their house cured pancetta, delicious sauce and perfectly cooked pasta was a delight. This was the first dish I had tried at Osteria Coppa, and it was unforgettable. Enjoyed it with a Caesar, just fabulous!

The food was excellent, and best of all the waiter was friendly, professional and a lot of fun. We asked if he had reccomendations and he asked if he could order our entire meal, we agreed. This was fun, exciting and turned out to be an experience. The food was delicious, and the evening was very enjoyable.

Great value and evening
We had broccoli as our appetizer versus dinner vegetable and it was to die for. Great food, scene, menus and price point.

Loud and crowded
We were looking for a cozy, romantic spot to eat....this was probably not the best choice. It was very noisy and
bustling. Our table was very close to the one behind us so I was bumping into the people behind me the whole time.
The service wasn't great...(although in their defense, the place was packed). Food was very good though.

Repeat visits all great
Ate here multiple times during mo th of hotel living awaiting.a new home. Great e pertinence each visit - sign of a good place.

Pizza was amazing
Make a reservation if you are going on the weekend. Our waitress was great! Energetic, loved her job and the food. Everything we ordered was delicious. The gnocchi special with the smoked trout was wonderful. We would go back again.

generally, food is well prepared.
waiter was nice but inattenttive (serving too many tables?)-
had to remind him as well as his helper that we were ready to order several times and to bring us utensils with the dessert.
We even had to point out to him that my friend's cappucino had no foam on top (must be from being left out too long before being served.
salads on the menu are mediocre for the price/overpriced for the portion

Vegetarians can find it hard to choose from a verity of vegetarian dishes.

First experience a while back wasn't as pleasant as this visit. Gave you a second chance and enjoyed the food and experience a bit better.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We keep going back!
My husband and I love Osteria Coppa! Chef always has interesting, different and seasonal dishes that never disappoint. We enjoy ordering several starters and sharing everything. The wine list on the iPad is unique and quite good...many interesting choices by the glass to try. It feels like a San Francisco quality restaurant in San Mateo...finally!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite restaurants in San Mateo. The food at Coppa never disappoints! Sad to see they took the Raviolo off the menu (guess it's seasonal - such a shame, as it's AMAZING) and a few very minor service glitches (missing a water glass, forgotten drink order, etc.), but in general the service is good. On this particular visit, there were four of us and we all loved our entrees (salmon, chicken, steak and pasta). Nice ambiance, good wine selection. Always busy. Highly recommend!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Latest pizza was outstanding with arugula, cherry tomatoes,and a basil crime fraiche. However, the Ceasar salad was below "par", but has been good in the past.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
The kale and beet salad is amazing. Really liked my pasta dish as well but forgot name. The lemon grilled broccoli is fantastic. Really enjoyed overall!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Coppa is one of our favorite restaurants. The food never disappoints. Everything is fresh and delicious.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simple Italian dishes with a gourmet twist. The pasta is all made in house and was delightful. The bartender had some unique and very good cocktails as well.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good as always
I have never be disappointed at this Place. Their Pizzas are EXCELLENT!!!
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Another great restaruant in SM
Yummy food, great drinks, friendly and helpful staff all add up to a great find. The kale Caesar was delish!
8/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
The pizza is as close to the pizza in Italy as you can get! Homemade pasta is decadent!!! Interesting, farm-to-table creations. Our waitress was pretty bad, but whatever...
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Solid Dining Experience
3rd time at Coppa and we'll return.
One of the better restaurants in the peninsula.

Pleasant Service and Flexible Chef
The service was attentive but not intrusive which was exactly what we were looking for as this was a business meeting. In addition we had some special requests for the food and it arrived as requested with no issues. Very enjoyable experience. Definitely worth a return trip

Yelp had a lot of reviews
Yelp had a lot of reviews on the bad service and rude waiter/manager for this restaurant. However, I found the wait staff pleasant. Only complaint was it was too fast. I was finishing up one course when they were bringing out the next.
Felt they were trying to rush us out before the next seating - time in restaurant was just over 1 hour so it was pretty fast for having appitezer to dessert.

We had a pizza, lobster salad, pork chop, corn soup and a side dish. all the food was fresh, well presented and delicious. Waitstaff was knowledgeable and helpful. Wine was somewhat overpriced.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was really good -- food was so tasty and presented very well.
Only thing that bothered me was that we felt rushed -- wait staff was too eager to clear our plates and kept hovering.
Coffee was tasty but could have been hotter.
Overall a good experience, though.

The food is consistently good
The food is consistently good here. I had the special, which was ravioli; light and tasty! We also shared the salumi plate; five different types with olives, breadsticks and marcona almonds. We really wish they had given us more! We have yet to have a meal that wasn't tasty, visually appealing and exactly as described. The one drawback (and it isn't the food) is that the tables are crowded a little too close together; we really enjoyed the conversation that a party of five was having that sat behind me (and they were not talking loudly). But we definitely will be returning as there were several other items on the menu we want to try!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love starting with the cheese selections! This night they featured Corn Soup which was delicious! The specialty pizzas are always great! We always share one of those with one of the pastas or main dishes.
Service was perfect with just the right amount of attention!

Their Pizza was great - the topping were unusual (green olives, green chilies, garlic & oregano) were a different but surprisingly great combination. The corn soup was very tasty....and they serve the BEST bread....ACME!!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten-free pizza! They make the crusts in house and they are delicious. Pasta sauces are also homemade and so tasty.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A San Mateo gem
We love going to Osteria Coppa for dinner on a Friday evening. Great cocktails, good wines plus excellent food and service.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Back again, this time for a casual brunch on Saturday. Seafood salad, loaded with calamari; pasta pomodoro. A montepulciano and a sangiovese did the trick.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
One of my favorite places! Nice atmosphere. Great food and good service.

If you want a delicious dinner and included ambience plus friendly staff-----this restaurant is for you!

Excellent Quality Italian Food
Not a huge selection or variety of food but everything on the menu is fabulous. Staff is awesome. Highly recommend for unique food and wonderful service.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The fresh pasta was stellar and the service was great. Our server was funny, attentive and knew the menu very well. He recommended a dish and a glass of wine and they were both fantastic.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing and authentic Italian food
This place NEVER disappoints. Recently took a client here for lunch and my client was blown away by the food - meatballs, broccoli and fish on a bed of eggplant... Incredible!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This time it was a business dinner. I had the Caesar salad v good then the skirt steak, excellent. I found the iPad wine list gimmicky
Maybe it was me but I couldn't find enough California wines on list. Specially the " by the glass" selection.
Service v good. Best of all my boss paid
Great experience as usual
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been here 4 times this month!
We love this restaurant! The Acme bread they serve on the table is the BEST bread in the Bay Area. Their caesar salad is very authentic with a real classic taste and great homemade croutons. Their meat platter is very nice. The olive/chili/garlic pizza is a very is a great mix of flavors, while their special pork with white beans is great. We can't get enough of this restaurant!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Gluten Free Options!!
I love this place! Their gluten free pizzas are so yummy!
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Went there for Sunday brunch with wife, daughter, and grand kids. All had a. Great time and enjoyed the food!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great!
The food here is great! The service is really slow. It took a long time just to get our drinks.

Consistent and Good
Osteria Coppa is remarkable...if you want a spot to have a good, consistent meal without emptying your wallet go to Osteria Coppa...inventive pizzas with appetizers based on interesting seasonal offerings...and the menu changes frequently...our server was very good...quick, energetic without being intrusive...very willing to suggest a wine or offer a small tasting without being asked...
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
don't miss the pasta.
we ordered the black truffle pasta and a Prosciutto pizza. the texture of the pasta is very good. pizza is okay, but creative. The chocolate mousse we ordered was just so so.
The service is very good.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lunch menu was fabulous
Dined for lunch with a friend. Everything on the menu looked so good it was difficult to make a decision, so we went a little pedestrian - soup or salad and a sandwich - and were thrilled with the result. We had a little pasta dish before we ordered lunch - tagliolini with smoked trout and English peas - incredible flavor. Sandwich we chose was Coppa's version of a BLT; toasted crunchy thick Acme bread, thick bacon, early girl tomatoes. YUM. Soup was tomato with peppers, which was also very good. I have to say service was really great as well - we felt pampered and yet not slobbered over. Great to know how good the lunch menu is - we'll be back! (better shot at parking during the daytime; parking garage directly behind the restaurant)
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Osteria Coppa has been uneven quite frankly...this time it was very good in every respect...possibly the time of day...a 5:45 PM reservation so the kitchen was just beginning the dining hour...an enjoyable evening for all...
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this Place
My first time here and the food is amazing - super fresh and wonderful flavor. The wait staff is friendly. Great menu choices a must try restaurant.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Very Good Meal
Osteria Coppa can be uneven...this time it was very good with friendly but less than prompt service...and this on a slow Monday night...possibly they set their staff and kitchen staff schedules based on the anticipated number of diners...if they are a little off for whatever reason, service can suffer...Nevertheless, the frequently changing menus taking advantage of seasonal, local ingredients makes dining here interesting and fun.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Romantic and Kid-Friendly
The fact that Osteria Coppa manages to feel intimate and extremely adept at handling large group events is a testament to its service. The fact that I recommend Osteria Coppa for pretty every event is a testament to its food.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Specials are always great
Had a great meal at Coppa the other night - always best to choose the pastas or the pizza - one dining partner found his fish just to be okay, but the pizza and pasta orderers were extremely happy - I had the special pappardelle with red wine sauce and braised duck and it was out of this world. Also forced me to eschew my usual ravioli order with the brown butter and egg which is so authentic.
Service was attentive with no lags between courses.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful for Brunch!
We have had many great dinners at Osteria Coppa. This was our first brunch and it was quiet, intimate and fun! The egg dish and french toast were "life changing". Mimosas are a must. We will definitely go again.
