Coppi's quality has deteriorated significantly in the last year or so. Our most recent experience makes it unlikely we will return: incredibly slow service (40 minutes to receive our meal) and food that has lost the flavor and enjoyability it once had. Undercooked pizza, for example.

Love that there are specifically labeled vegan items on the menu. I had the mushroom risotto, which was quite good but lacked the creaminess one expects from risotto (a bit reason I was so excited to find a vegan version). I think the addition of some coconut milk might be just what’s needed. Still, it was delicious with a lovely assortment of perfectly cooked and seasoned vegetables. I was glad a vegan dessert option available. I was too full for anything but sorbet, of which there was not a vegan option. Service was excellent, and server was knowledgeable about vegan choices.

The food was good- the veggie options were decent. The issue is that it was so incredibly loud. I could barely hear my companion and he was sitting right next to me, not even across the table. Definitely don’t try to dine during happy hour.

We didn’t eat here. Friday night and it should be hopping. It wasn’t. The service was dreadful from the beginning. The young woman who spoke to me when I entered was sullen—I actually couldn’t figure out whether she worked at the restaurant or was just walking my way. The restaurant was empty and she tried to seat us at the tiniest table. When I asked for a different table, she put me right next to another party.
Our server was slightly more friendly (a pretty low bar) but inattentive and forgetful. While he was greeting me, the sullen hostess walked up to him know he was being sent home. I did not need to hear the discussion about why she was going home (by I did). I asked for sparkling water and a glass of wine while I waited for my husband. I got the water but not the wine. 10 minutes later, he again asked if I wanted something while I waited. My wine? “What was it you wanted again?”
I cannot comment on the food as I paid for the sparkling water (which I hardly consumed) and left.
Life is too short to dine at such a dreary establishment

We loved the relaxed "neighborhood bar" vibe of the restaurant. The food was excellent. My partner loved the unique lasagne and the special rockfish was very good. Definitely worth a visit.

We were there twice in 10 days and it proved wonderful both times. Food is excellent and we could talk without shouting. AND THE VEGAN MENU IS WHAT DREW US IN AND WILL KEEP US COMING BACK.

Coppi's is one of my favorite places to eat. I've never had anything I did not enjoy. The menu is seasonal and interesting. The wines are very well curated and a good value. The happy hour is amazing. It can be a little loud at peak times on weekends but is otherwise fairly quiet spot to have great meal and catch up with friends.

Oftentimes "organic" hides a multitude of sins in the food & beverage world. Coppi's a happy exception.
With an interesting, well-prepared menu, terrific staff, and an excellent beverage selection - including some excellent cocktails - Coppi's is a real standout in the Washington, D.C. restaurant scene.

We LOVE the delicious vegan options at Coppi's and the Monday senior discount was an unexpected bonus. Kitchen was very slow our evening and we were the first table to arrive. Credit card machine malfunctioned and sorting that out took forever.

We were so happy to find a restaurant with a vegan menu. They lived up to our expectations. The vegan food (pizza and an eggplant parmigiana) were wonderful. Our friends ordered meat and were very happy. Coppi proves you can be all things to all people! (We made reservations to go back 1@ days later with other friends.)

Despite living nearby, we had never been to Coppin's before. I enjoyed the menu that featured Italian with a vegan twist but could have used a few more choices among the pastas and other categories. I had the caesar salad which was unremarkable and had too much dressing on it. The zucchini pasta appetizer was just the right size with the salad for my dinner appetite. Service was prompt and since it was a Tuesday night, it wasn't too busy and therefore very quiet. A great environment to talk with and catch up with friends.

The homemade pasta and apple salad were delicious, as was the drink special with Prosecco and pomegranate seeds. The ambiance is great, there was live music that night, but not too loud that we couldn't talk. Hailey (or Haley) was our server, she was fantastic. My friend and I had a great dinner that night. Location is great also, very close to the Metro. They also have a great Vegan menu as well for my family, so I will return.

Great place to spend Valentine's Day dinner with my wife. Being a cycling fan the homage to Fausto Coppi was a nice surprise. There was a jazz band that added to the occasion and our waitress was exceptionally courteous and checked in periodically.

The service was impeccable. Finished dishes were cleared right away, water glass was never empty, food was to die for. Typically I don't order Mahi Mahi, however, my date was a pescatarian. I've never had such a tender Mahi. The wine and cremini reduction on the Risotto was outstanding, as was the texture. Cooked perfectly. The cream on the tira misu was simply dessert-gasm. I'd recommend Coppi's to anyone traveling to DC. The live band consisted of a bass player and fiddle player. The bass player came up to me as I walked toward the bathroom and told me how lucky I was to be out with such a fine gentleman (a bit weird). While I was in the bathroom he approached the gentleman I was with to suggest they be on the "down low," which was completely inappropriate. I know this does not reflect well on the otherwise perfect dining experience, but the manager should know.

Took a chance on this restaurant and were very glad we did. One of our party was vegan and loved the food. But the non-vegan and non-vegetarian entrees were also well prepared and delicious. Our waitstaff person was cheerful, friendly and responsive. And the music was excellent. The menu selections are not that extensive but certainly more than adequate.

The noise level was so loud, we found it difficult to hear our wait person. We were a party of two baby boomers (aged 60) and a 29 yr old, and we all found the noise level to be. The music was beautiful, but would suggest acoustic better than amplified base.
The food was delicious and our wait person was wonderful. But I would hesitate to go back there if I wanted to have a dinner with family/friends with whom talking with while eating was a desire.

Great food, but the service was problematic. They said they were short staffed the evening we went (Dec.23), but it took quite a long time to get our food when other tables around us who were seated and ordered after we did received their orders well before ours. We also ended up not receiving one entree we ordered. So I’d recommend, but be prepared for service issues.

Cleveland Park has lost some very good restaurants in the last few years, so were are glad that a good restaurant moved in. We will definitely go back

This is the second time I have been to Coppi's. The first time was like a comedy sketch. No one trained to be a waiter coming to the table, staff writing orders on the back of their hands. We thought this was just a start up problem. The food was good, but not wonderful. I decided to give it a second chance and again the service was awful. We had 6:45 reservation on a weeknight and did not leave unto close to 9:45. It took forever foe appetizers to arrive, ever and a day for the main courses and then we deliberated whether to get coffee. After 25 minutes I wandered back to where a gaggle of wait staff were hanging out, and said that if the coffee wasn't, ready, it should be cancelled. Only then, did the coffee arrive. Did I mention that the restaurant was never more than half full and by the time the long march to coffee began, there were no more than 5 tables occupied? Good for

The food here is great, and they have a decent happy hour. However, the service is atrocious. We had a server try to seat us, but then just walked away into the kitchen, leaving us standing in the middle of the restaurant. Confused, we asked someone else to seat us. Once seated, it took 15 minutes for someone to even take our drink order, and the second round of drinks we never even received. Overall, the servers seemed overwhelmed; they were racing back and forth, running into each other, and bumping into guests that were seated in the middle of the dining room. Servers were dropping things on the floor and just leaving them there. Not sure if they were understaffed, or if this was a normal occurrence, but I definitely will not be going back.
