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 pasta tasted fresh and overall everything was delicious. We got the chocolate chip cheesecake which was divine and the tiramisu was tasty. The service was great and making a reservation was easy. Would definitely go back.

Food was delicious. Was a cute, little old-time neighborhood restaurant. Pricey for the amount of food you received. Would have liked to have bread with our meal… or at least to have been offered some.

This restaurant has no liquor license currently, which we were not told about until we were seated to order. It says nothing on their website or anywhere else in the process of making a reservation, and our server was pretty rude about the issue when we tried to order drinks. They also brought me the wrong meal.

Overall a pretty good experience, though the lack of a liquor license meant no Italian Red Wine with dinner. The food good, just nothing really stood out as a star dish. I’ll be back to give it another try, but thing they’d be best served with some fresh made pasta to elevate the dishes. Service is outstanding, nice inside, small and quiet, great place for a date and or quiet conversation.

Copollas West is one of my favorite restaurants on the Upper West Side. Fabulous service, delicious food and quiet place to have a great dinner and conversation when dining with friends.
The Minestrone is absolutely delicious. Salmon is very tasty and come with vegetables and potatoes.
Excellent salad menu choices.
Several delicious dessert options which include Cheese cake,
Apple crumb pie and chocolate cake are a few of the selections.
Bon Appetit!

We were in awe just walking in the door. We were there Friday of Restaurant Week. The hostess, didn’t get name (LONG hair tied back in a ponytail) was so polite saying hello & seating us at our table. When no one was waiting at the door, she came back & helped out the servers by clearing dishes and checking on customers!
Our waitress Norena (probably not spelling that correctly) was high up there on our list of top 10 servers which we started when we were married 44 years ago. We loved her! She was attentive, thoughtful and remembered everything we said the first time.
We will without doubt, come back often to enjoy the food and know we will be treated with kindness and respect.

This is one of those places that we have walked by a million times and said, "we have to try this one day". Well, the day came. And we were pleasantly surprised.

The eggplant was delicious. The fish, a bronzino special, was delicious. Portions were huge. We ate the fish (really enough for 2), and some of the eggplant and took the rest home. Sides were good. Only issue was that they were unable to sell us any wine because they were waiting for their license renewal, which really is appalling for any restaurant these days. But it sounded like it was not their fault.

The place is in need of a redecoration. Of course, if they were to do that, the prices would have to rise, and the food is very reasonable, so maybe the 1970's heavy decor is just fine, thank you.

I really disliked my meal although my son and husband had good dishes so my review is mixed. I ordered an a clam and shrimp appetizer as my lunch meal and the clams were so fishy and oily tasting. I couldn’t eat more than the one. The shrimp were just ok. I think That I expected more because of the good reviews. I wouldn’t g back.
