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.

I love the ambience, service, and food. It is an absolute pleasure to be here. Saturday the chicken under a brick was a little dry, but everyone's else's dinner was wonderful as usual. Cocktails and wine were equally wonderful. As always, we will be back again!

Excellent as always. A few new dishes since we visited (pre pandemic) and attention to detail — read my request for a very safely distanced table outside (in a Saturday night, no less) and we were very excited to be back to dining out and felt safe from Covid.

Coppa Osteria is indeed a neighborhood gem - not even in our neighborhood, but every bit worth the drive. The food is like no other, equally creative and outstanding. The wine list l by the glass is more adventuresome than any I have encountered at any Houston restaurant. And yes, the service rises to the level of the food and wine list.

It took almost 30 minutes to get our wine and chick pea appetizer. My husband finally went inside and told them we were leaving, so they sent out the assistant manager, who was wonderful. Our server leterally disappeared!!!! Food was very good, but the lack of initial service did not leave a good impression.

Love to post compliments and hate to post complaints but this place was FULL. No empty tables, no distancing and full crowd at bar. Sorry. They say they are complying but they are not. It's not fair to other restaurants that are following guidelines and losing money when others are not following guidelines. And I am a strong supporter of independent businesses and I understand how difficult 2020 has been to stay in business. But they are putting their staff and customers at risk.
I would highly recommend at any other time but right now during Covid.

There was no organization, no social distancing whatsoever, not everyone was wearing a mask while they were walking through the restaurant and the bar area was packed. I’ve been here before and this is not what I’ve experienced before. Very disappointing.
