Italian
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.

The entire dining experience was excellent. The food and service were delicious and attentive. If the bathrooms were in a better location or the martinis were a bit colder it would top 5 stars. Highly recommend.

Asked for Linguine with garlic and oil with anchovies. They were perplexed. Wasn’t on menu. Seems like a basic Italian staple to me. I said the chef will know what I want. Most especially an Italian chef. The Latino waiter said the chef was not Italian and that I should tell him the ingredients. Really? Garlic and oil pasta? That’s like asking for the recipe for ice cubes. I ordered the ravioli. Not great. Over cooked. Marinara was very good though. Not a place to dine. In my opinion, an up scale eat-in pizzeria. Not what I thought we’d experience when made the reservation.

Table was ready when we arrived. Waiters were very attentive. Would recommend the homemade pastas and the stuffed chicken entree. (We will have to go back to try the others!)Portions and prices felt fair, especially for the UWS.

This restaurant is a hidden gem - coming here for many years when on the Upper West Side. It is a cozy ambiance, great food and service and best of all noise level is usually fairly low. On my last visit we were seated near a large group celebrating a birthday so they were boisterous but not intolerable. On all other occasions noise has not been an issue.

We looked up the menu before deciding to go. Their website appears to have more items in it than the actual menu at the restaurant. When we got there we couldn’t find several of the items that we saw online, but were told it wasn’t a problem to make them. Portions are huge and the complimentary beginning bruschetta is a very nice touch. Would recommend if you are looking for good Italian.

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.

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!

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.

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.
