A group of 8 of us came here for dinner last night for my boyfriend's birthday. I had a 6" bakery cake with us to have for dessert. Before giving it to the hostess to hold till we were ready for dessert, I asked if there would be a cake cutting charge. She said no. Although having 2 glasses dropped on our table and breaking, dinner was very nice. We ordered three bottles of wine, appetizers for the table and entrees. After we sang happy birthday, the waiter took the cake back to the kitchen to cut up. A few minutes later the waiter returned with the cake intact saying it would be $4/per person to cut. I was flabergasted. We ordered over $500 of drinks and food and the restaurant would not cut the cake into 8 slices. I don't mind paying for good food and service, but I do not appreciaite being nickle and dimed. We were given a knife and cut the cake on the table. Although the food is decent here, I will not be returning

As a hotel Concierge, I have to be aware of different types of restaurants in the city. Some people like a "dining experience", some just like good food. If you're looking for an experience, Coppola's may not be for you. If you're looking for good food and fair prices, then by all means go to Coppola's. I first discovered this place because one of my guests ended up disappointed in an Italian restaurant i recommended for him and his family. It was a "flavor of the month" type restaurant that left him underwhelmed. In his words, "I can care less about who eats there and what NY magazine has to say..." He went to Coppola's on his own and reported back that it was a great meal and he left satisfied. I've always walked by this restaurant buy never gave it a second thought. Now I know better. With more than one location, this is where I send people who want a good Italian meal that won't bankrupt them. Their eggplant parm is delicious and the red sauce on their pasta was quite tasty! The service seemed a bit absent minded, but I'd prefer that over snooty. Over all, I can recommend Coppola's to anyone in need of a good Italian meal at a fair price.

This is another Italian restaurant run by people who do not care or understand quality. The Veal Parmesan is mediocre and the sauce is nothing special. You either use San Merzano Tomato Sauce or you use the cheapest kind you can find. They forgot the bread and Parmesan cheese even after I mentioned it, and the dish was $20 which is on the high end for average food. An Italian restaurant should at least be able to get the order straight even if it is average quality.

Solid place with good food, I used to order 4 -7 meals a month from here for delivery. Lately they have been messing up every order. Sometimes the phone just rings and goes to fax, other times they are charging you for menu items you ordered but are missing.

We were in the city for a day and decided to have lunch here. The prices were so reasonable. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! We sat outside on the patio because it was such a gorgeous day out. We didn't feel squeezed in, there was plenty of room. This restuarant is definitely a keeper!

We went with friends on Saturday night. We hadn't been here for several years. All our dishes were excellent; Caesar Salad (we requested anchovies), Black Linguine with lobster, Scallops with risotto, Spinach ravioli. Good expresso- we skipped dessert. For our neighborhood, this as a reliable place for a very good meal.

My wife and I frequent Coppola's on the East Side at least once per week. The food is excellent, the portions are large and the service is attentive and professional. We highly recommend it.
