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.

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!

We were in the neighborhood and passed by this place and thought we would give it a try. At first we went inside but the ambience was a little bit tired and the only table available was next to the bathroom. They did have one small table right out front and so we decided we would eat there and it was actually very lovely. Clearly this would not be an option in colder weather. The waiter was very very good and nice. The food was excellent – one particularly good dish we enjoyed was the black linguine with seafood. We also had a pizza and it was very good but not great – the crust was a little bit overcooked. Overall a very decent local Italian restaurant.

This was about the 3rd or 4th time I have had a dinner at Coppola’s and it never disappoints. This time around our table had the chicken parm, caesar salads, Pasta Fagioli soup and a margarita pizza. The pizza was good, but not as good as I have had here before this visit. All the other items were excellent. Service was attentive. We all liked the atmosphere of Coppola’s. Walk into the restaurant and pass the bar area then step down a step or two to the small narrow dinning area. Kind of like what you would expect of an old time Italian restaurant where maybe you would see Vito Corleone dinning in the back with some of his friends. Of course this will not be the last time dinning at Coppola’s and already looking forward to our next experience here.

The food was delicious. Even though I am Italian, I am not a fan of a lot of garlic. My dish had a lot, but at least they were in larger pieces and I was able to fish them out. Excellent service and I would return.

Not the best meal this time at Coppola's, Caprese salad, they used the end of the tomato..nice big core going through it, my Cesar salad was SO soggy, and husbands Pizza was under cooked and dough was soft and unappetizing.
We have been many times, this was by far the worst meal. Sorry!
