Best Italian food restaurant in Houston.It is so different than usual heavy Italian food restaurant in Houston!!Original and different dishes with right size of portion ...I hate huge portions,it is like they love in restaurants in Houston you take the leftovers and drive around 610 as you were a delivery guy

Really my new favorite restaurant in Houston

Food was excellent but hostess forgot us, arrived early for reservation, were told to wait at bar, gave up and asked if we could order at bar after a 20+ minute wait, bar service was great but sitting at end of bar by bathroom was not that great, because food was so good decided I would just check with hostess and tell her she forgot us, she then claimed she "couldn't find" us, sorry but bar just not that big and 4 other groups were seated while we waited, disappointing

We arrived on time for our reservation. The hostess told us that we had to wait and she also stated our table was not ready. 😒 I was shocked and I could not believe it. We wait 15 minutes and then we were seated at a broken table. The table was also placed in a odd spot with no decorations on top of the table. The waiter was “ok”, he didn’t really take of us. There were other servers who brought our food and drinks. Overall, the food was amazing, but the restaurant was not great. My wife and I will not go there again.

Service was outstanding — thanks Krystal! One of us had the lasagna (excellent) and 2 of us had the 3-course option with spaghetti carbonara; it was the best I’d ever had, very flavorful without being too heavy. Hazelnut chocolate cake was the perfect finish. Will definitely be back!

Our (female) server was quite the pro. My husband totally enjoyed his carbonara while my raviolo was too salty. I could tell this after only one bite.
Our check was credited for my inedible meal.

Hostess were sooo uninvolved. Sent us to the bar and then forgot we were there although they can to get others. When I went to ask about our table, it was apparently ready for us. I think this soured the whole experience.

I had the rigatoni. Very tasty but meat sauce was too dry. My friend had the tenderloin which was served perfect. Very tender, juicy, phenomenal tasting spicy rub. For dessert we had the Tiramisu, which was rich and flavorful... delicious. Also ordered zeppole , one of my favorites. Also known as sfengi. I requested no powder sugar as I like to dip in honey. Unfortunately they were way over cooked, almost black. They should be light brown. Very disappointed. Apparently white powdered sugar covers a multitude of sins!

Nice place, packed with beautiful people. Food is just OK, service is borderline amateur and prices are way too high for what you get in return. You can go to better places in Houston for a fraction of the prices here.

My moderate rating on the food is most probably for personal reasons. When asked for a suggestion, the waitress recommended I try a pasta dish with shrimp and a lemon sauce. The sauce was amazing, I just didn't love the taste of the shrimp in the dish. Probably more of a personal taste thing than something wrong with the dish.

I hated to see the restaurant so slow for lunch. August is tough for restaurants. Please support them with your business if you can.

We made a reservation for 6pm and were told that it would be awhile for our table inside (why else would we have made a reservation!). Since we were attending a concert we ended up outside due to time--very hot and slow service made for a much less exciting experience than we would have liked. Salads were terrible and chicken was overcooked. Will not be returning!

When we are in Houston we always try to dine at Coppa. This visit was just as good as the previous visits. The bar is lovely and the bartender excellent. Dinner was wonderful. We always share the crispy chickpeas - they are nice to munch on while we drink our wine and look over the menu. We shared one of the featured appetizers for that day - a burrata, peach, proscuitto and honeycomb plate. Yum. And then we shared the papparadelle entry which we always enjoy. No room for dessert! Very good food and a good value. Highly recommend.

Food was excellent but service was abysmal. No one at the table received the correct drink or food - we were left to redistribute among ourselves. We were only halfway through our salad when our main course was brought out.

I will go back for the food and hope the service improves.
