    BRAVO! Hands down the best Italian we've had in Denver and we've lived here over 20 years (and are decent cooks ourselves). Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our server, Stefano was great in steering us through the menu with so many good options. From the bottle of wine, to the octopus crudo (fabulous!) to both our pasta selections (Bustiate and Lorighittas - YUM!). Highly recommend, can't wait to return!

    From the minute, we walked into Coperta, we felt welcomed and knew it was going to be a great evening. Our waitress, Nicole was friendly and answered any menu questions we had. She was knowledgeable about both the food and wine offerings. We started with the focaccia and the octopus appetizer. Both were delicious. All of the pastas looked amazing and we had a hard time choosing which ones to get. We decided on trying three half orders of pasta, the ravioli, the cavatelli ragu and the caccio pepe. My favorite was the caccio pepe followed closely by the ragu. The olive oil cake for dessert was a big hit as well. I enjoyed the fact that one of the chefs often delivered our food. It was nice to see the pride he felt in his work. This was our first visit and we will definitely return.

    Went for our anniversary- pasta was SO dry and not cooked aldente. It was HARD and both dishes were salty to the extreme, couldn't even eat half of either. Kale fritters were flavorless. Drinks were good though. Definitely seek out better Italian nearby. So many good spots + 23% service fee for bad food and mediocre service felt blah. 😅

    Great atmosphere! Love old buildings with exposed brick and lots of natural light by big windows surrounding the restaurant with its entrance on the corner! Service was great with our party of 9 - no complaints. I was asked by my brother the Monday before Easter to make brunch reservations. I found it challenging as restaurants either had buffets at $75 per adult or they were booked! I stumbled across Coperta since 5280 magazine wrote it up as a top brunch place in Denver in February 2024. I was able to make reservations easily with the time we wanted. My brothers changed the reservations two more times adding an additional 5 people from the original 4. The restaurant accommodated! It was nice when we went because it was just enough busy, but not a zoo. I had looked on line at the menu in advance and decided on the veggie frittata. When I went to order, I was told they took it off the menu. I wished they had the website aligned with the current menu. I ended up ordering the prosciutto Benedict. It was overall good with the side of rosemary roasted potatoes and fresh fruit. The only thing I didn’t care for was the English muffin was toasted to the point that it was on the cusp of being burnt and was difficult to eat as it was hard. I would recommend the restaurant and would return.

    Do yourself a favor, eat here. A friend and I had dinner here in 2019 and I had been talking about it ever since. I was thrilled to find it survived Covid. Took a a small group this week and was hoping it was as good as I remembered. It was amazing! One of the many things that impressed me was that the chef has such high standards they would not serve the dinner special (Meyer lemon pesto gnocchi) because it didn’t come together as they wanted. Added bonus, if you love dogs sit by a window. There is a constant parade of dogs walking their owners and if you’re lucky like we were you get to see a dog play group.

    Everything we had was delicious but the Bustiate pasta was exceptional - smoked almond pesto and burrata on fresh pasta was over the top good. Cozy, atmospheric setting in a brick walled building made for a great date night out.

    Coperta was exceptional in every way. The Restaurant Week menu was creative and absolutely delicious. One of the best Ragu/Bolognese dishes I have ever had. Our server was wonderful, attentive and so knowledgeable. And the ambience. Truly felt like we were in a wonderful trattoria in a village in Italy. What a wonderful evening, in so many ways!

    We reserved a table for Denver Restaurant Week and we were very excited. We’ve lived in uptown for years and haven’t tried it. We were sadly disappointed by the meals and the cost of them. We spent $200 and it did not feel worth that whatsoever. Our server was wonderful and she was on top of everything. She was a delight.

    This was our best meal in Denver and we've lived here over a year. We love Italian food and I feel like they actually did it right! I think the food was reasonably priced, authentic and delicious. They make the service charge very clear, and the service was worth the price, so much that we tipped on top. I would love to see them do date night specials, half priced wine, or something on weekdays, but ultimately we will be back! All the pastas were spectacular, and the cookie dough gelato was amazing! The carbonara was salty (as it is authentically) so if you tend to find things salty in general, I would opt out. But it was my favorite item!

    We went to Coperta specifically for restaurant week. I was very excited for this one as it’s been a restaurant on my radar for a while. I was pretty disappointed with the overall food I was served. Each course felt like a salt bomb and the primary flavor profile for each item I received: Roman Street Fritter (if there was garlic in this like advertised, I’m shocked. I couldn’t taste anything else but salt), Cacio e Pepe (I expected this to be salty, but this was way past the normal saltiness level with this dish), and the Pan Roasted Pork Shoulder (probably the least salty of the three, but no other discernible flavor and slightly over cooked.) The sorbetto was unavailable but the olive oil gelato was passable, though not my personal cup of tea. The portion sizes did not feel worth the $45, especially given the caliber (or lack thereof) food. Had each dish had complex and well-prepared flavor profiles, I’d change my tune, but that wasn’t the case. Overall, pretty disappointed by the offerings here and I doubt I will return.

    My husband and I dined in for brunch. He ordered us the 2 egg breakfast: sausage and potatoes were good, eggs were just eggs with toast the bacon was good also. The brunch pasta carbonara was not good, the dish tasted stale the pasta itself tasted like it sat in a box for a long time. That fruit bowl was not worth the price even though it was only $4 dollars, four pieces of pineapple and a large strawberry cut down the middle, which was the best thing we ordered besides the pour your own mimosa. But the service was great, thanks to Kyle.

    Five of us went for a Saturday brunch to celebrate an anniversary. They gave us each a small glass of champagne, and brought a little special treat of french toast bites. The food was delicious, and the cocktails were as well. Try the chai espresso martini! The atmosphere was quaint, the service was very attentive but not clingy. This spot is a small town gem.

    One of our faves, humming along as well as ever. On a recent visit we had the new octopus carpaccio and roast pork shoulder - both were exceptional. Great to see half-portion pastas back too. We're actually fine with the 23% service charge. It saves some math, the servers always earn it, and (importantly) it is calculated pre-tax -- as tips should be but rarely are. This is a trend we're seeing more of, and it is not necessarily a bad thing. The all-Italian regional wine list is awesome, and servers are knowledgeable about the offerings. Only minor quibble I have is that the cocktail program could use some attention. Batched Negronis and Boulevardiers are nice enough, but stemware, cocktail sizes, and garnishes could all use an upgrade. The bartenders and staff seem very capable of handling a more refined service.

    Enjoyed the foccacia. The chickpea fritter was a bit too salty for my liking. My pasta was pretty salty and the pairing was a bit odd (brussel sprouts and grapes with oxtail). The sprouts weren't cooked evenly. Cocktails were pricy given the size of the cocktail glasses.
