Nestled between the South Hampton and West University neighborhoods, Coppa Osteria is the perfect pairing of food and lifestyle. With craft cocktails and an extensive wine list, it's easy to find the perfect beverage to pair with the Italian-Mediterranean cuisine. The Dough Room - where handmade pastas and pizza dough are made daily - takes center stage. Neapolitan inspired pizzas, such as the Coppa Peperoni and Carnissima, are crowd favorites. Diners also flock for the Fritto Misto, Burrata Pomodoro and Spaghetti Carbonara (Coppa's signature dish). Complete with a lively bar scene and a large outdoor patio that lends itself to sipping rosé and taking in the surrounding neighborhood scenery, Coppa is the ideal setting for an intimate evening with family and friends.

Dough Room available for parties of up to 12, call 713.522.3535 to reserve.
Located on the ground level of the Hanover building at 5210 Morningside.

Could tell the hostess team was not one that cared about their customers but were working off optics and metrics alone. I don’t understand the reason for making a reservation with how they behaved when I walked in stated our name and time of reservation and got the most annoyed response of her life. It may be family friendly but only because they’re working off what’s going to rack it monetarily in not that their patrons are there for a pleasant evening. And yes, we ordered a special, we ordered an appetizer, we orders specialty drinks, and desert. Food is stellar, atmosphere could have been there but it was just a total dud. Last night I was spending with my husband for two months before I left for two months.

We had a reservation at 8:30 and were made to wait over 40 minutes before we finally just left without being seated. They were not apologetic.

We had to wait for 25 minutes to be seated in spite of our reservation. Server did not wear a mask. Social distance not respected. General confusion among servers as to what orders went to which table.

Lively, beautiful setting. We enjoyed Heriberto's guidance on what to try. The food was very good. For a special dinner occasion in Houston, this has made it to our top 10 list.

Our table of 3 shared an appetizer, a pizza, 2 entrees and 2 sides. The meatballs appetizer was everyone’s favorite, although all items ordered were good. We ate outside which was a little uncomfortable due to 90 degree day, but indoors was definitely noisy, so glad we reserved an outdoor table to allow for easy conversation.

I went for my birthday. We were told there was a wait for inside even though we booked a reservation inside. We never had a waiter until the very end. They brought us the wrong check three times. Now my mom has three different charges pending. The food was amazing but I won’t go back because the service was so bad.

This has become my favorite restaurant! I love fresh pasta and this is the place to have it!
Of course I love the Spaghetti Carbonara! We have tried numerous dishes and never disappointed. The wine is a great value, not over priced like so many other restaurants.

Great atmosphere! Wait staff are fantastic, we went for happy hour on a Friday. It started raining about halfway through our meal and even though we were under an umbrella they offered and found us a table inside to move to.

We sat at the table for over 30 minutes before a server came over - and that was because I was able to tap an employee as she brought something to another table. Our entrees came before our appetizer and we were rarely visited after that.

Had a great experience for dinner at coppa. The ambiance inside is interesting - much larger than I was expecting though the tables very close together. The food was so excellent. We got the buratta tartufo which was divine, Cesar salads, the Bolognese and the carbonara. I think the carbonara was the best thing we ate! We also ordered dessert, which was very good. Our service was wonderful, they were attentive and made great suggestions.

Not the best Coppa experience. Very frazzled waiter. Food didn’t come out right and had to wait to make another “salad”. Wine took forever to receive. Waiter was nice but not experienced.
