Food was great! The only draw back was that I made a 7:30 reservation for inside and we still waited an hour for a table! Very disappointed.

Not as good as usual—service was lacking and pork chop Soecial was so-so and too small of a portion. Compare to La Griglia. Will try again. Inside is better than outside in general.

Cocktails at the bar and service at the bar was great!
Our reservation wasn’t managed well. We sat at the bar waiting for our table and were forgotten. When we asked they rushed to sit us at a table by the door. Cold air was rushing in every time someone opened the door. We asked to move and were immediately.
Food was delicious and hot.
Harrison was a good server.
My husband’s birthday wasn’t acknowledged...and I stated that on the reservation.
The music played is awful. I understand that there is a generation gap, as we are in our 50’s...but every time we have dined here, I have hated the music. There has to be a middle ground for music.

The team that served us at the bar was OUTSTANDING. Someone checked in on us every few min and they couldn’t have been more friendly. We definitely enjoyed our food (including our request to make the bolognese a little spicier - it was perfect), but the service was what put this over the top. I’m not sure if I’d even want to sit in the main dining room the next time we come because of how much we enjoyed this experience (and we will be back).

About the food, I would absolutely recommend the bolognese and the delicious chocolate cake. For anyone that can handle spicy, I’d also recommend the shishito peppers (much spicier than other places).

Server was great, food was great. However, we reserved on Open Table for 2 and as an anniversary and it seemed like they did not bother to read the reservation. They set up table for 3, and while the food and service was pretty good, it seems like nobody told our server it was our anniversary. Not a deal breaker, and jot expecting anything free, but something like writing happy anniversary on our desert would have really been icing on the proverbial cake. If management reads this, could be a good training opportunity.

In any which way, we’ll be back!

As always Coppa O was amazing! Their spaghetti carbonara is a MUST. I always order one for myself and one for the table because I know after people try mine they always want more of it. My fellow guests got pizzas and enjoyed them! We sat outside and they had heaters for the guests. Ours ran out of propane at one point and they were fast to get it switched out.

The staff were attentive, kind, friendly, the outdoor seating, lovely but the food very underwhelming; we were the only table there as it was 4pm which means the kitchen had much time to prepare and present dishes. We only ordered appetizers and had every intention of an entire meal but the 3 items we ordered to start were so rough we decided to get the check and head out to finish our meal elsewhere.

I would eat a fried sock, and not sure how fried misto can be messed up, add a little corn flour to crisp it up??? The misto was pale and undercooked, not remotely seasoned or crunchy. Extremely oily served with an extra side of unseasoned oil, even a red sauce might have helped. I LOVE Italian food and the pictures online look nothing like the actual served food. We were hoping the fried calamari was a fluke, we ordered a cheese board and warm olives. The olives were room temp, no biggie. The piece of bread served was strangely not cut into a chuck, or an entire piece of bread, it seemed like it was just torn off a loaf with jagged chunk out, a bit strange. The cheese board was tiny and basic, a good size smear of fig paste and marcona almonds, both positive, but then a minute bite of honeycomb, a LOT of red grapes, and perhaps in TOTAL the cheese was about 1/2 oz of generic blue, parmesan?!? and triple cream, each piece of cheese was about the size of a mini laughing cow wheel for comparison. We decided to leave and head to Antica Osteria instead to finish our meal. The service was great, the food was less than average and disappointing. My bill was $70 with tip for a bottle of sparkling, a cheese board, warm olives and misto. Hoping the kitchen can work on quality so the food looks like it should and tastes even better. Might consider a few key people sit down and review menu, what it looks like when it comes out, taste the food and compare to a highly rated Italian restaurant. might help?
