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 enjoyed this very much We are very experienced with excellent and authentic Italian food and this was terrific! The service was great...very attentive and the table was ready when we arrived. It was an enjoyable and efficient experience. We finished in more than enough time to get to our show. We will recommend and be back!

A sleepy kind of place with a tired staff without personality.
For long periods of time. Staff member was banging on something with a loud noise directly behind the booth in which we sat. Restaurant was largely empty.seems like a place on its last legs.
Food was ordinary.

My friend had pasta with seafood and it was good but I was very disappointed with my vodka pizza..no flavor at all and the crust was disappointing also.

Added to an outstanding night as we went to the Beacon Theater. Salmon and Chicken Parm prepared to perfection. Courteous and prompt service. A real delight to eat at Coppola's West. Our second time there and we will be back!

Coppola's West is always a great spot for Italian food. Coppola's Penne Vodka dish is, hands down, the best vodka sauce in the city.

Our experience was rushed. Wait staff just kept coming and removing our dishes whether done or not. Food was “pre-cooked” and heated before brought to us. How did we know? Order came 5 minutes after we ordered. Pasta was sticky and clumped together.
Atmosphere was great. Small and cozy. Won’t return

Lovely place, the lasagna was better then the carmines one. The Moscow mule they served was one of the best ones I’ve had drank before. Amazing food, drinks and ambiance.

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.
