Coppa is an intimate enoteca tucked on a quiet side street in Boston's South End featuring Italian small plates created by James Beard Award-winning Chefs Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer. Everything is made with locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Coppa has an eclectic wine list, and unique cordial-based cocktails.

Please note that our patio is first come first serve and reservations are not accepted for outdoor seating. We only accept reservations for the dining room. A few tables as well as the bar are saved for walk ins. Due to our cozy setting, for reservations of parties over 4 people please call Coppa directly.

As Coppa is a small intimate restaurant with limited seats, we do ask if you are running late to please call and alert the host. If the party does not show up, the table is given away after 15 minutes. Thank you in advance!

We had a wonderful lunch here- the meatballs were fantastic as usual, broccoli was tender and tasty, and the oysters were outstanding. My date had the carbinara and we thought it was a bit too salty and thought it tasted a bit seafood-y, but overall, we enjoyed the food. We had a very kind and knowledegable waitress. The host/hostess were not overly welcoming, but we didn’t have to spend much time waiting, as we were sat pretty quickly for our reservation time.

Had an amazing dinner here with my friends. The pizza there is really delicious. Highly recommend the sopressata pizza and the arancini.

Good music and overall experience was intimate and cozy but carbonara was lacking and slightly soupy, burrata toast and cavatelli delicious.

They had me at Negronis on tap! My favorite cocktail to sip while I enjoy outstanding food. The completely comfortable vibe adds to the A+ experience.

Wonderful food, excellent service, cozy and warm atmosphere. Took a friend from out of town there for dinner and it was the highlight of her visit to Boston. Thanks, Coppa, for a fantastic night.

Had a lovely meal at Coppa after moving into the neighborhood. Meatballs and Oysters are both excellent starters. Highly recommend the sopressata pizza and carbonara as main courses.

We went here for my boyfriends 30th birthday and everything was delicious. Really fair prices and we both felt perfect portions. We had the duck prosciutto, spaghetti carbonara and manitilli, and tiramisu for dessert. Our waitress was super helpful with our wine selections and recommending a cheese to go with our prosciutto as well :)

The wine and food selection here is always superb. The service is excellent. It's a tiny place, so be ready to easily eye your neighbor's meal while you make your own selections, but it's totally worth it to be packed like sardines... which reminds me that I should have ordered the boquerones (anchovies) which from previous visits have been delicious.

Outstanding!!! I am not overly fond of restaurants that seat closely together. While this place is tiny it is exceptionally well done. The ambiance and delicious food quickly alleviated any anxiety I had about sitting so close to strangers. The romantic ambiance coupled with the throwback hip hop music is an interestingly delightful combination.

Everything was absolutely amazing. The service was great and the food was phenomenal. Highly highly suggest the fois gras with the brioche. One of the best dishes I’ve ever eaten. If you’re feeling Adventurous I also highly reccomoned the pig ear terrine, an incredibly unique and tasty dish.

The place is a small cramped space. You can hear the person on the next table better than your own guest. The food menu is different and unique, but that doesn't reflect into the quality of food. The sea urchin pasta was floating in the pasta sauce. Beer menu is small and lists 4-5 options only. Pizza was the highlight of the night and saved the day for us. Would not go back again for the overpriced meal !!

Food was a bit uneven as were the portion sizes. The pasta was particularly small for $22 and the celery caesar was enormous. The ambiance is really unfortunate. We reserved far in advance and got a really crammed table and it was the loudest dining experience I've had in a while. In addition, they seemed understaffed at least in taking orders for food and drinks. We had one dish that tasted kind of off. The pizza dough was delicious but the toppings were negligible except for the cheese which sort of overwhelmed everything else.

Excellent charcuterie, brilliant products unavailable elsewhere. Giant 5 selection board was outstanding.
Inventive small plates like sea urchin and beef tongue panini, plump white anchovies...lots of red pepper on that one. Pastas around me were redolent with garlic but I came for the pork. A snippet of well-seared foie sealed the meal. It's a tight space for all the tables in there. Perhaps a seat at the long bar next time...

The restaurant is very intimate and clean. It isn’t too loud which is great and the food was even better. The taligatelle and carbonara were unique and very well prepared. The pizza was also so delicious and crispy and flavorful. So many delicious dishes at this place!

Our waitress was very nice and pleasant. But the tables are sooo close together that is was difficult passing through to get to our seats. It’s a pretty tiny place. We arrived a half hour early for our reservation and was pleasantly surprised they were able to seat us. As for the menu, somewhat limited. Our meals were very spicy over all. But the margarita pizza was very good.

Disappointed in the flavors of the meatballs, arincini and tagliatelle. All dishes were ok and not great. Arincini has orange zest which did not help the dish. The Tarimisu was more of a cake with hazelnut. Not really light or fluffy. Felt the prices were high for the pasta for the small portion. Surprised that this restaurant has made the best of Boston lists.
