    Coperta was a little off this visit. The curtain when walking in to the restaurant almost caused us to run into patrons exiting. Our food took about an hour to arrive and one of the dishes was incorrect, so we had to wait longer. When the corrected dish came out the ravioli was undercooked. The flavor was good, but a little heavy on the lemon in the goat cheese mixture. The braised beef short rib app was tasty, but the polenta was a bit grainy. The chips added nice texture. My ragu was hearty but a bit heavy with salt and the full portion definitely seemed like a half portion. The red Rosa cocktail was one of the best I’ve ever had. The donut dessert was very tasty. The restaurant took care of one of entrees and the dessert due to the entree issue, so it all evened out to be worth what we paid.

    I particular like restaurants with "limited" menus because I think the kitchen can be more focused on quality fresh ingredients and creativity. Coperta's small-ish menu has nothing but well prepared, delicious food. I never know what to eat there because no matter what I order I am always very pleased. Last night was no exception. Our table had Bucatinin All'Amatriciana, Goat Cheese Ravioli, and Cavatelli Ragu. Served piping hot and after a moment of silence, nothing but oohs and aaahs. We love eating here!

    The first time I went to Coperta many years ago the food wasn't great and the service wasn't either. We decided last night to try it again and I am so so glad we did. The food was amazing and the service was even better. We ate calamari, meatball (meatball appetizers on Monday are AMAZING), Cacio e Pepe and a pork chop. If nothing else order the Pork Chop - presentation was incredible, the meat was so tender and the sauce was absolutely scrumptious! We will definitely be back!!

    Our visit to Coperta was fun, comfortable, and welcoming. We were already excited to visit based on what we expected from reading about the food. Upon arriving, we were even more impressed by the ambiance, and our server, Alex D. He was incredible and thoughtful. This was a great night out and we can't wait to come back!

    What an amazing restaurant! My boyfriend and I are out-of-towners who stumbled across this restaurant online. We were celebrating our five year anniversary. OpenTable gave us the option to select a reason for the reservation. When we arrived, which was 30 minutes early, we were warmly greeted, told "Happy anniversary," and given complimentary drinks. We were seated immediately even though we were early. Staff was so nice and the food was amazing. My boyfriend and I both said this dining experience was the highlight of our trip. Would recommend to anyone and plan to visit anytime we are in Denver.

    Food was delicious and service was great. We would definitely go back. Portions could have been a titch larger, having been raised on old-school red and white checkered table cloth joints in the northeast but not a dealbreaker at all.

    Service was excellent, timely, polite and knowledgeable. The ambience was very cute, warm and homey. Cozy and low-lit! We happened to come in on MEATBALL MONDAY and everyone at the table was head over heels for those meatballs. Bucatini, cavatelli and eggplant parm all high quality as well as the wine selection. Would highly recommend for hearty, cozy and well executed meal!

    We love this restaurant! Have been here multiple times but this was our first time for the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. They helped us with a last minute accommodation of adding two more family members who were stranded in Denver with recent weather and they couldn’t have been better with the fixed price menu and everything on their regular menu. Food great as always, service as well. See you soon. :)

    Coperta never fails! It’s a neighborhood gem and I am grateful theyre here! I’ve taken out of town/out of state friends there recently - and they’ve all raved! And why wouldn’t they!?! Last night, we shared a variety of plates and watched the snow fall. It was a perfect evening - despite the crazy cold. Our server went out of her way to make sure our table looked great while she took several photos of us. She couldn’t have been more gracious.

    A gem! Delicious food, cool vibe, good service. A bit overpriced to make it into our regular rotation, but a great place to splurge or celebrate a special occasion. Feels a little like dining in New York City.
