Amazing as always! I thought Coppa has done a great job transitioning during the pandemic and we were cozy enough sitting outside in 50 degrees with the heat lamps. Food was outstanding as always. We came for brunch this time and of course for the the grinder, cacio e pepe scrambled eggs and the delicious zucca!

It was nice to be able to go out to eat. We have been apprehensive due to Covid to even eat outside. The staff was great and the food was good. The hot toddy Which was delicious,was not hot but I decided not to return it in our environment of Covid. I wish it had been hotter but it was really good.The hangover pizza was superb as with the meatballs. We would go back, we had a really nice time.

They do not promise your food will come to your table all at once. Some of us got entrees, then others had to wait and often did not receive their food before others finished their meal. Two of our six entrees took over 45 min and we complained. The manager took care of us and it was okay. However, I still think they should tell you their norm is that your food does not come out all together. When you’re dining with others and some people are eating while others are not it’s just weird. I don’t want to give them a bad review as the food was great, but I would have wanted to know their method of food delivery before we went so I could decide if this was a place for us.

The food at Coppa was fantastic. I would give it 5 stars if they had not forgotten to put a candle in our dessert for my boyfriend's birthday. I not only wrote a note on my reservation, but I called them that day to confirm they could do this for me. I was very disappointed that they forgot, especially since I would not have bought a dessert there if I didn't think they would do this. Little things like this can unfortunately put a damper on a great restaurant.

This was our first visit to Coppa. The overall impression was really just ok.
The bread came in a brown paper bag, and it tasted like the bag.
Found that surprising considering the peperoni pizza was so delicious. The pasta was good, not great. Stella (RIP) is a high bar to measure up to.

The sorbetto was really great. So the start (the pizza) and the finish (the sorbetto) made for a pleasant experience.

Coppa is always good. I love it here. It's getting colder and unfortunately many of the propane heaters were broken. The times prevent new heater purchases, so be sure to dress warm. Perhaps seat cushions to keep the metal chairs a bit warmer, or just BYOB - bring your own blanket!

Coppa has a charming outdoor setup - lots of dog walkers going by on a lovely Boston street, but not heavily trafficked. Food is amazing - their Italian grinder is the best sandwich I have had anywhere. Service was great. Wine by the glass is overpriced though for what isn't anything all that special.

Brunch at Coppa is always a treat, but especially so now (during the COVID pandemic) because of its expanded outdoor seating. The ambiance is like being in an old European city (Paris, Madrid, etc.), with friends, couples, families, single diners, folks with dogs, young, and old all enjoying a relaxing respite on the quiet side streets of the beautiful South End. The scrambled egg cacio pepe was reliably delciious, as was the special (homemade) pasta.

A few things: 1. Don't get the cheese plate. $14 for a dollars worth of cheese.
2. The pasta dishes are good but not exceptional. There are many Boston Italian restaurants with better pasta dishes as well as a much more expansive menu. 3. While the service was fine, they rushed you off of your table.
Overall OK but I would not return.

I follow a vegetarian diet and the choices are good and the quality is very high. Tiramisu was a heavier version than I prefer but still good.

We took our daughters who attend BU to lunch there. Loved the pastas and pizzas! Arugula corn salad was amazing! We had dinner there in the late winter and were so impressed we plan to try to eat there every time we go to Boston. One of the best places we have eaten!

some plates were really small portions for the $; one plate was also cold and not tasty as all... attempts to make it a "creative dish" were not successful...stick to original recipes!

overall, not worth it, plus they overcharged on the bill for a few items compared to prices listed on the menu...

As always, a superb experience. We live up the street and it’s a delight every time we dine there. During Covid, Coppa has done an amazing job of keeping things sanitary and safe while serving amazing food in a lovely outdoor atmosphere. I have a gluten intolerance and their gluten-free pasta is crazy delicious. My husband eats all kind of gluten and always leaves happy and full. He often gets their pie to go.

We took advantage of the warm late summer days to eat outside, and had a lovely meal! The heirloom tomato salad was to die for, and both our pizza and pasta dishes were delicious, as was the honey apple crumble! Even though every table was occupied our server was attentive and the timing of the different courses was perfect.
