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.

Perhaps we visited on a day when staff was short. The excellent ratings of Coppola's West prompted us to give it a try for a weekday lunch. Although the food was very good. the service was slow. It seemed that a number of tables -- in addition to ours -- experienced lengthy waits and lacked staff's attentive eye.

Not only would recommend but have many times. I received a gift certificate from my daughter some four years ago. I took my girlfriend there to celebrate our anniversary and we have celebrated it at Coppola's ever since.

excellent EXCEPT the busboy took our silverware as we gave our credit cards to the waiter and when our credit card receipts were returned, took our napkins and washed the table as we put our receipts away. There was only one group of 3 which could have been waiting for our table - Coppola's just lost the 3 of us as future customers.

The 2 of us were at Coppola’s West for a 6pm dinner on Mother’s Day. Even on a holiday, the food and service were both superb! I had the Capellini Coppola—jumbo shrimp, arugula and radicchio tossed with a light fresh tomato and white wine sauce over angel hair pasta. He had the Fusilli with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage. Both were perfect. We shared Grandma’s Cheesecake for dessert. We left very full, but very happy!

This is my second time at this restaurant. The first visit was good so we wanted to try the pizza which is recommended. I was unimpressed with the pizza. However we also tried the branzino which was very good.

My 2 friends both had the eggplant parm and were raving about it - except for it coming with mashed potatoes. I had the flash fried calamari, which were good, as well as the pizzette which was also good. The place is always full but the kitchen retains its standards. A neighborhood gem is the apt description.

Delicious old world Naples food. Appetizer of baked claims and shrimp in lemon was excellent. The main dish of fresh crusted crab meat on branzino was mouthwatering.

The ambiance of this restaurant is attractive in an old fashioned way; the walls are of red brick; it is somewhat dark and cozy. The quality of the food is mixed. My salad was excellent but, the seafood pasta, while more than ample, was too oily, not particularly well prepared and much too expensive. It's best not to go during peak times as it becomes very noisy. All in all, my opinion of Coppola's West is mixed.

I have always wanted to go here and we met up with another couple a few nights ago. Very crowded and popular on a Friday night. Food was pretty good.

The waiter was great, but my main complaint is the way the busboys acted, very pushy. Several times they both tried to take plates away before our meal was finished, after awhile it became annoying for all four of us. Our water glasses were removed while we were still having our coffee, I am sure they are told to do this and turning the tables for the next group is a priority over good service. I will not be returning.

Old school Italian that epitomizes “neighborhood gem.” Great place to eat if attending an event at the Beacon Theater. Service was fast, professional and courteous. The homemade pasta is a must, we tried three different dishes, all were spot on. Truly an enjoyable dining experience.

The server was not optimistic about being able to get food prepared plain; i.e chicken cutlet parm with no tomato sauce. But they did make it that way. The linguini with short ribs was okay but nothing great. The pasta was stuck together. The food came very quickly which always makes me suspect that food is prepped to far in advance and is sitting just to be heated up. I have eaten in much nicer places where you feel real good about the meal you had, this place just didn’t do that for me. Not terrible but not great either.

The food is always very good at Coppola's. Our only objection is that the space is very small, and you can't dine comfortably with more than four people.

First and foremost--the food is very, very good and the price point for food and wine is very reasonable. I just discovered this restaurant one month ago and have been there twice now (and it is not in my neighborhood)--and will continue coming. Second, but for the hostess, the service here is also excellent. The waiter checked in regularly to make sure all was well and that our wine glasses were full. Much appreciated. I also love the ambiance here. Very homey which means, of course, sometimes fairly loud. With that said, noise level is manageable and, if noise is a problem for you, suggest coming to dinner around 9pm when many tables start to empty. Ove this place.
