My pasta was delicious. My partner's sandwich was adequate. Insanely overpriced, and service was disjointed and confusing.

We have dined here many times in the past and we have always loved it. Last night was not one of those times. The restaurant was freezing. The take-out protocol was for people to pick up their food at a large window that goes almost to the ceiling. This window opened and closed often as they do a huge take-out business. We kept our coats on all dinner and if it was acceptable I would have left my gloves and hat on too. The food came out very staggered and the first person to get their food was finished by the time the last person got their food. I understand good food will come out staggered as to be fresh, but this time there was too much of a delay. I’m not sure we will go back.

This is one of our go to Boston spots for cozy, dependable excellent food. Summer and winter it’s always a great spot. While I love its location, I wish it were bigger so not as hard to get tables for more than 4 persons.

Very good good and atmoshphere. Only problem was it was very cold. They open the window for takeout and the restaurant is very small, so every time the window is open a cool breeze comes in. Dress warm.

Pasta was very good, enjoyed the spicy rigatoni. Drink selection was not that large (weren’t able to make specific drinks we wanted). Tiramisu for dessert was disappointing, was a bit dry.

The food and ambience were great. Our server was sub-par but the front of house manager made up for it.

The place is tiny, and the table for 2 they sat us at was very cramped by the bar.

The pizza and celery salad were incredible. Great place for before theatre dinner.

Very good experience. Server was terrific. Atmosphere is very South End-y (small, crowded, hip). Food was very good but uneven: table bread, tiramisu, swordfish and pasta were terrific; rice balls were dry and under-sauced, and burrata tasted great but was expensive for a tiny piece of cheese. They were struggling to handle take-out orders and serve in-house customers, but even with that, a very good dinner.

Coppa is a favorite restaurant of ours ever since it opened. The quality of ingredients and preparation are always outstanding.
Service: Over the years, we have usually been quite pleased with every aspect of our meal, however, we were disappointed with how slow the wait staff was to acknowledge our arrival - 25 minutes before anyone came to our table of 4 to welcome us, offer anything, or even to say they were really busy, but would be back soon. This was while some of the wait staff talked together at the back of the restaurant. Disappointing.
Value: The food value is great. The wine markup is at the high end of what comparable restaurants charge.

Coppa is a neighborhood gem. The food was delicious. Recipes were creative. Servers were attentive and pleasant.It was nice to have so many non-breakfast foods to chose from at lunch/brunch time on a Sunday.
I wish the space was a little larger.

Our food was delicious but we were unlucky with the service. It looks like the team did not decide who was going to be our waiter, so we waited for our water for about 30 minutes. Asked for sparkling water, it never came and we did not see that waiter again.
The tables around us seemed to have the same waiter and much more consistent service from him. I guess we just had bad luck. The food was great and we’re probably going to give it another chance, hoping for better service.

Delicious food - but noisy and crowded on a Saturday night. It's a small place and tables are close together so if you get noisy neighbors like we did you may have to yell also. Service was very good. Food was great. Younger crowd.

I felt the waitress lacked warmth and was inattentive. The man that brought the food was a little rude. Like we were bothering him. for $200 I expect t a bit more charm and warmth. The Food was good. Pasta was very good as was the swordfish.

The food and service exceeded all expectations. It was cold that night and outdoor seating was not available. The setting was intimate and noise level was perfect. You could carry on a normal conversation without having to raise your voice and at the same time feel comfortable that your conversation wasn’t pushing into someone else’s space. We started with a cheese plate that was perfectly balanced with a sharpness of the pecorino to butteriness of the robiola. We moved onto Coppa Pimento and the Arancini. The pimento was a rich patty of flavor garnished with giardiniera to a perfect finish. The arancini was as good as I have ever eaten. Warm, just short crunchy with a creamy cheese and rice center. We each ordered a pasta dish. My wife ordered the fusilli and I had the tagliatelle (we shared). The fusilli was served with escarole and white bean ragu reminded me of a soup my wife’s mother would make that would go with Sunday dinner. Adding the fennel sausage and parmesan coated the fusilli pasta with the flavors of mama’s soup with the sweet bite of the sausage. The tagliatelle bolognese was beautiful. The egg pasta flat noodles were cooked to perfection, so to absorb the flavors of the bolognese, sage and parmesan. As a surprise, a dish of Cacia e pepe arrived at our table, sent by Chef Jamie Bissonnette. It was outstanding! Bucatini coated with a parmesan and freshly grated pepper sauce. A simple dish of Roman origin unlike anything I have ever tasted before. Although not on the menu at this time it is a must order when it is. Thank you Chef for a wonderful dinner.

I do not have words to describe how good this meal was. The staff is simply lovely and the celery caesar...I mean dear lord, easily the best salad in Boston!
It really is elevated, well thought out food that also plucks on that comfort food string for me as well.
5 Stars all around for Coppa...I LOVE YOU

Food was very good and the service was quick. We sat outside, but they had two heaters for our table. It is a little pricey for the size of the portions, but still a wonderful place to eat nonetheless.

Everything was great except I was a little uncomfortable sitting so close to other diners because covid. I would have felt better knowing those sitting next to me were vaccinated but I know that’s not a requirement. Still, if you’re extra cautious about sitting too close indoors, use their outdoor seating instead.

The food is outstanding but the space is too small for the amount of tables they have packed in. The service is rather harried and there’s no bar (they also ran out of some wines by the glass). Food, a 10; everything else, a 3.

When the restaurant is at half capacity, it gets very loud with the combination of music and people talking. It's a great scene if you're with friends, but if you want a quiet date or not having to speak loudly to be heard, I would recommend another place or get outdoor seating when the weather is good.

The food is top notch, the ambiance is great, but it's a small place inside and does get very loud.

Atmosphere was great. We all shared a cheese and meat plate which was excellent. All four of us had pasta dishes as main course. All 4 were delicious, but the food was at the higher end of the saltiness spectrum.
