Always outstanding. Nickolaus (spelling?) our waiter, did an excellent job and delivered very personal and professional service. Patio is always nice on a warm evening.

Our waiter was new as was the desk hostess, hence the lower score for service. As always ambiance and food were outstanding. Weather cooperated for pleasant dining outdoors. Never disappointed dining at Coppa.

I have to say first that service is excellent. However, you can live without tasting this food and be okay. Overall is way overpriced. No need to go try it out.

Enjoyed a marvelous supper at Coppa. It was late, so we shared a meal - the lamb chops with sautéed spinach was PERFECT.

Service was attentive but not overbearing.

S great choice in Rice Village!

Great experience. Our server, Rafael, was amazing. He was nice, attentive and knowledgeable! The food was fantastic as well. We started off with a caesar salad, moved on to these wonderful mozzarella sticks and then finally ordered the spaghetti carbonara which was phenomenal! We will definitely be back!

Came to Coppa two days in a row for lunch. Enjoyed our waiter so much that we asked for him again. Superb and confident service. A pleasant and helpful young man. Sure is someone Coppa can be proud of. He knew the menu and wine list well! Thanks so much for a great dining experience!

The good is wonderful at Coppa as are the wines! Our experience was enhanced because of the skill and competence of our waiter, Nico. He was very efficient and attentive. I have been many times to Coppa, but I find the best server by far is Nico. He is a real asset to the restaurant.

Place was cool. It was just my wife and I for the-day-after-Valentine’s, and I didn’t really like passing all that open seating just be sat in the back by the wine cabinets. It would’ve been different if we’d had our 7-year-old with us. But hey, I’m not a big complainant. I don’t make big stinks when I don’t get exactly what I want, but maybe I should have in this case. Besides that, the experience was ok. It’s a nice restaurant, and I would like to give it a second chance. I’ll likely be more vocal the next time, especially if that situation repeats itself.

I have a few constant critisims of Coppa. In general the food is very good. The service is not so great. Servers frequently don't ask or bring the customer what's needed nor what I've asked for. Things like bread, butter, parmasean cheese, craked red pepper, ANOTHER GLASS OF WINE, cream for coffee, sweetner for ice tea...simple items that should be standard for ANY server in the business. You order coffee, bring sweetner and cream! You order ice tea, bring sweetner. Wine class is empty, "would you care for another Malbec"? and... if I order one, actually bring it to me! In addition, there is one waiter in particular that has the worst body oder. Sorry, it's winter and great weather...please come to work clean. It matters to the customer having a nice dinner. Again, the ambiance is amazing, especially the patio dinning and the food it wonderful.
