Owner-Chef Salvatore Coppola"s training began at an early age. As the son of the Naples born parents Salvatore spent many hours in the kitchen learning to cook and refining the same Northern Italian recipes in both of his restaurants. Before opening Coppola's on 79th Street, Salvatore trained in New York City Restaurants quickly becoming Executive Sous Chef. In 1986, using family recipes opened Trattoria Coppola, which soon after became a staple for dining on New York's Upper West Side and earned him a 5 Star Diamond Award in 1997. In 1998 Salvatore opened his doors of Coppola's East in the Gramercy Park area of Manhattan to provide a more elegant style of his Northern Italian 'Comfort Food'.On any given night you may run into a number of New York's Resident or visiting celebrities at both of Salvatore's locations. In addition to fantastic food and comfortable dining, Salvatore establishment offers professional and knowledgeable service, extensive wine list, private room and catering.

Despite a reservation, they offered us a terrible, saying "this is reserved table". Food was fair. Not sure we'd go back.

The food was good, the specials in particular. Service was good and seating comfortable especially for a small restaurant. It was New Years Eve and all seemed well under control. It was early 6.30 but crying babies reduced the overall score.

Good food, good vibe, good place to make a night of it.

Unfortunately for us we had to make a curtain that night. If you need to make it a quick dinner, you need to tell your waiter, twice!

Intimate, neighborhood restaurant used to be our favorite go-to for traditional southern Italian food and quiet atmosphere. But wasn't so happy last two times--possibly due to change in menu (and, possibly, chef?).

This is one of my all-time favorite places to eat n NYC! I have been eating here for 20years and it has always been my goto for all types of occasions from comfort food to dates. The menu is amazing great portions, variety, and an amazing staff really make this place a second home. The wine list is small but robust with great selections to pair with your meal. And the rotating cocktails are in a class of there own!

coppola's is a very consistent good not amazing restaurant. If you are in the mood for a good red sauce Italian meal, it is a good place for you. I did once recently have cold undercooked chicken parmigiana but that was a notable exception.

We have been there many time and have and, for the most part, been very pleased with the food. However, our last visit on 12/10 we felt rushed--not rushed by our server but by the other staff. One of members of my party had not finished his meal but the other 2 had but the wait staff figured all member were finished--slow down.

We will go back again but be more cognizant of whether folks are finished or not.

The food here is delicious traditional Italian fare. Homemade pastas are delicate and the sauces well prepared. We had a wonderful experience.. all our courses were served at their proper temperature and although the service was friendly it was a bit inefficient.

Best Italian food on the upper west side of Manhattan, Copollas is a can't go wrong meal. Food is outstanding and ambiance is very relaxing and comforting. Make sure to book a reservation as you probably won't get in during prime hours without one.

Got there about 15 minutes early but were told we had to wait even though our table was ready and available. Hostess was a little snippy with us as if we should not have gotten there early. That is the only negative thing. Service was wonderful. Good was exceptional as always. This place continues to be our favorite go to when we are in New York

I trusted the reviews and reserved for lunch.
Decor is nice and inviting.
Once we were seated and were about to order, the waitress told us the pizza oven was not working.
Mentioning it when we walked in would have been more honest.
Food was heavy and unfortunately restaurant at this time was ran poorly by the staff.
