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!

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?

The food was very good. My pasta carbonara was excellent but the portion was maybe a cup in volume. For a pasta entree that was a very small serving.

I did not have a good experience. Our waitress was not good. She took wat too long on bringing our drinks out (we only got 1 in the dinner). She would disappear for 30 mins at a time. After we got our checks she charged me for more drinks than we had. And said that I had more drinks than I really had and didn’t believe me! Also, they didn’t have ANY tequila and the only one they wanted to serve me was 1942. That tequila was too expensive and they didn’t even offer to match price it. They thought I wouldn’t know the difference in the price, but I do. I will not be back in a long time... very disappointed in the service.

It was our first time dining at a restaurant since Covid. The food was excellent and the service was safe and personal. We are so glad we went.

Our only cause for discomfort came when we looked inside and saw that almost every table was full, some with multiple people. We will sit outside but would not feel comfortable with inside dining.

Our initial waiter was acting very weird & kept glaring at my wife without speaking. This made her very nervous . Then I explained to him that my wife was requesting a club soda which caused him to glare at her further. When he returned with a bottle of seltzer, she explained to him what she wanted a third time. I told him to forget it & he kept glaring at my wife. I told him to leave. Within minutes a new waiter appeared & things went fine. We will not be returning to your restaurant. The food was very good. I will tell all of my friends about this alarming experience.

I am gluten free and they have the most amazing GF pasta here! The fish is always fresh. The wine pours are very generous, and well priced. The valet is back open so it is easy to just pull up and leave your car!!

We requested the patio but were basically sat in the valet line. We asked to move and they put us in front of where pick up orders are collected which meant getting blasted by headlights.

We usually love Coppa, but our last visit we had difficulty getting our dessert served. We finally asked to have it to go. After waiting for another 15-20 min. , then went up to the hostess desk and asked for their help. They said our food would be ready in "1minute". Ten minutes later, we paid our bill, and 5 minutes later we got our dessert to go.
