Although the food was ok I would never go back! The service was awful and the waitress stood 10 feet away from us when interacting with us and barely spoke with us. For a dinner for 2 they charged an automatic 20% tip plus an additional 10% Covid charge at their discretion. Not worth it at all.

Our sever was AMAZING. We loved her and she was very generous to us and made the experience so much better. We were very disappointed with the food however. I ordered the Tagliatelle which was actually great, but way too salty. My partner ordered the carbonara...which tasted more like a cacio e pepe soup. Not a big fan to be honest. Think we just came at a bad time because I've heard so many great things about this place but didn't think the value was worth it.

Coppa is delicious and delightful! We loved our outdoor dining experience on Saturday night. My only comments: the arancini were a little dry, and my (orange) wine was served too cold... but, it was a really cold evening which meant it couldn't really open up to a more "room" temp. Overall, highly recommended! <3

If you’ve ever had a gun held to to your head, then you’ll know what if feels like to eat at Coppa in 2021. The waitress stood 15 feet away like we had leprosy and really shouldn’t be working if she wasn’t comfortable interacting with people. So any away , food comes out and the portions were a joke. I’m ok with their pricing, because the food is very good. Here’s the problem I have. I’ll say it again - portion size is embarrassing and insulting and they have decided to add a 10% COVID charge and a 20% tip for the server and there was just 2 of us. I’m a 25% tipper but don’t want it forced on me. Also if you are going to add extra fees on top of your over priced food, you should tell me before I sit down. Will never eat there again.

The drinks were good, the cheese board for the price was a little outlandish- the salty pig in back bay offers the same quality with more of a selection for a similar price but they give a lot more. For example, they gave us about a teaspoon of fig jam 5 slices of meats and 3 very small bits of cheese for $38. The Pizza was fine, good but not astounding.

I took the early reservation in order to sit outside, and as it was such a nice night the whole area was bustling. Everyone in masks in the South End which made me feel very comfortable. We got to our reservation a little late, but sat right away. The outdoor seating is generously spaced, so zero reason to worry you’d be near anyone (they’ve tripled the patio size from last year!)

Would happily go back. For those commenting on the 30% added charge, it does include gratuity and our server made a point of mentioning that to us. We’ve been places that charge 20%, and while 30% seems like a lot, we’re leaving 25%+ gratuity in Covid, so we felt OK with it. The food was perfect as usual!

Is there a spot that delivers day in and day out (even during COVID)...the answer is yes and it is COPPA!
Have you ever had a bone-in, black truffle, porchetta? The answer for most is no...but for me it is a glorious YES!!!
The food here is unreal, comforting and creative...who doesn't like lasagna on a cold day, well you can get it here but the red wine braised bone marrow isn't some thing grandma did and I am glad Chef Brian stuffed it in those layers of pasta, cheese, and béchamel.
The hospitality is unreal...always feel like I am at home (just with better food and cooler people!)
Thank you Coppa for always being there!

wow , does a 30% surcharge on the check mean there is no incentive for the staff to be even remotely polite? I never write reviews but this was very disappointing. Used to go here all the time and was great , new management? Shockingly rude manager. They would not turn up the gas tanks because they were low on gas, well it is wintertime in Boston, wouldn't one fill the tanks in advance? Want to support local restaurants but we felt like an imposition.

Food was overly spiced - too much pepper n a pasta dish and too much salt on a veggie side; no cheap option for wine bottle; 30% Covid upcharge was a bit much; had to tip good waitress on top of that!

Food was extraordinarily overpriced for what we received and the 30% “covid tax” was absolutely insane. Furthermore, it was impossible to enjoy our meal as this is the ONLY restaurant I have been to that insists you put on your mask EVERY time the waiter approaches the table. If this establishment is so fearful of covid, perhaps they should remain closed. I certainly will not return again and am thoroughly disappointed, as my last dining experience here 10 years ago was quite different.

We felt like we should have been notified in advance of the mask policy. Other restaurants we have been to have not required a mask at the table, but Coppa required a mask at the table when you were not eating. It made it hard to relax and enjoy being out of the house celebrating an occasion. I also believe it is best practice to communicate an additional service fee in advance so customers do not feel blindsided. We did not mind supporting the restaurant staff during this hard time, but felt like it was not communicated clearly or disclosed upfront when booking. We understand times are tough and will be back to give the restaurant a second chance.

It was cold due to the door being opened constantly due to all the takeout orders which we quickly realized was probably the majority of the business considering the servers were a bit rude. I think because of the 30% automatic gratuity added to the bill they felt there was no reason to be nice.

For a restaurant that charges 30% gratuity I find it very odd that you do not give open table points - never seen a restaurant not do this before.

Food here is always outstanding! The service is impeccable! I’m always looking forward to going back to visit. It’s a shame what’s happening with Covid limitations. I feel bad for small restaurants taking a big blow to their bottom line. They add 30% gratuity to their checks for staff both kitchen and servers. I gave more....

Support neighborhood restaurants however you feel comfortable. We need to keep the good ones around ;)

Had a birthday there and everything was so delicious! The jk spritz with Mandarincello is absolutely perfect. The sea urchin carbonara was good, the pasta was perfect but the dish was lacking a little something. I wish they had peas in it but that’s a personal preference. Their celery Caesar is a must get!!! It was my friends birthday and they splashed us with an amaro and sent us a Nutella-like tiramisu with a birthday candle which was such a beautiful touch. Service was amazing, the whole staff was incredible. Covid spacing safe and I felt completely comfortable sitting indoors. Thank you Coppa!
