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.

We ate at Coppola's before a concert at the Beacon. Great little restaurant with excellent food and service.

I have loved Coppola’s for years, but after this experience I don’t think I will return. Our server took our orders and delivered our bottle of wine, and that was the last we saw him. Also, the dish I normally order was only so-so. There are too many other good restaurants in New York.

Awful service. My husband and I felt like we were at a diner. Food was rushed. Waiter was nasty. My husband had a terrible chicken dish. We complained to management on our way out and they were very defensive. What an unprofessional place. Stay away.

Really liked this cozy Italian on the UWS...we went right after a show at The Beacon so it's a perfect spot for an after-show bite. It's small and cozy, food is good, ambiance is nice.

Uninspired food and wines. The lasagna was a pile of of molten cheese over diner-quality noodles and filling. Wines tasted like they came from jugs - or the discount section of Trader Joe’s. Not going back.

First visit here was very pleasant evening. Space is small and popular on weekends. The food quality is solid and offering is all the American Italian favorites: Veal Parm, Pastas, Lasagna, some pizzas. The artichoke and asparagus salad was delicious, fresh and well seasoned. Overall a neighborhood solid option.

They’re definitely trying to turn tables over quickly. People trying to rush us into ordering, rush us to finish (three separate people came over to ask me if I was done when I still had food on my plate and fork in my hand). It’s great food but I’ll probably do takeout or delivery from now on. Wasn’t worth feeling like I was in the way.

Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The service was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. Really authentic Italian food. We had the stuffed mushrooms and the artichoke and asparagus salad for appetizers. We shared and they both were delicious. For the main dishes, I had the Branzino, which was amazing, and my husband had a type of Zuppe di Pesce dish, which he really enjoyed. We will definitely be going back.

We purchased a voucher on TravelZoo for the first time and will never do so again. Coppola's was awful. There were two takeout runners who passed our table about a dozen times with takeout orders. The waitress was grumpy. Our entrees were delivered before we finished our appetizers. My dish, shrimp scampi, was not shrimp scampi - just 5 tiny shrimp on a huge bed of linguine. The meatball appetizer and eggplant parm were very good. We will never return to this restaurant.

The food was scrumptious from appetizers to entree. The wine was as delicious as the food and paired perfectly. My only complaint was I had no room left for dessert! The staff was attentive, friendly and talented.

Went to NYC to see Tedeschi Trucks Band at the Beacon Theater. Coppola’s was across the street from our hotel and was a five-minute walk to the Beacon. It got great reviews and was recommended by hotel staff. The homemade pasta with bolognese sauce was fabulous and the service was excellent. Highly recommend Coppola’s.

It was crazy loud they seated us in the middle “aisle” the sound bounced off of us—- I requested to be reseated but they didn’t honor the request. We couldn’t even hear the waiter, used a travel zoo voucher and honestly some of the terms and conditions, made no sense it looks like they raised their prices so they didn’t have to offer some entrées. I’m saying this because yelp people mention that the prices were raised recently. Food was marginal at best, service was extremely erratic. Either the bus boy was trying to remove our plates every five seconds or we were sitting. Nobody asked if the food was good my fish was half cooked. After the food was served nobody followed up to even ask why at least half of my entrée was still on the plate. No, would not go back. Even with the travel zoo voucher, I don’t feel like we got a good value. And then there’s the 20% automatic gratuity.SO LOUD!

Every neighborhood should have a Coppola's - the great-meal-every-time mainstay you can always count on. We're partial to the veal parm, but the truth is we've never had anything on the menu that wasn't excellent. Generous pours of wine and drinks, homey vibe, nice staff, excellent value -- Coppola's checks every box, every time.

Coppola's is the perfect low-key Italian restaurant when that is exactly what you want. Reasonable prices, a small cozy downstairs room, and well-prepared traditional Italian-American comfort food. Every neighborhood needs a restaurant like this -- and we hope that Coppola's never changes!
