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.

A neighborhood gem. Classic southern Italian menu served perfectly. It’s not fancy, it’s not elegant, it’s just great.

Quick service on a Sunday night, food portions very nice, all meals were delicious and would come again. Was surprised no alcohol was sold, but that was not an issue for us. Staff very nice and attentive.

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.

The food, service and ambiance were all fabulous.
Coppola's was a warm and wonderful setting to rendezvous
with friends we had not seen for the last fifteen months.
Overall, a superb dinner and evening out.

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.

Decent family style Italian with good portions and nice indoor decor. This is a neighborhood restaurant we never tried out before but we will definitely come back more often. Go for the specials in the menu. We ordered the Salmon Cioppiono and the Seafood pizza from the specials which were both fingerlickingly delicious. Regular menus like baby clam linguine were good but not special. Servers were friendly and attentive. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner.

This was our first time eating indoors during the pandemic. Felt completely at ease due to acrylic partitions between tables. Service was good. Really wanted to love the food but it was just OK. Want to support our local restaurants and was hoping food would have been better. They had remodeled a few years ago so the interior is nice.
