After getting stranded in the neighborhood by some bad weather, my friend and I saw this place and decided we would sit down for dinner to get a pizza and wait out the rain. We figured that they couldn't mess up the pizza, and weren't expecting anything extraordinary. After being seated in the back part of the basement area (much worse atmosphere than the upstairs), the waiter took our order. We noticed that a party of 20 was also being seated, and hoped their order would not delay ours. An hour and a half later, they had already received their main course, another couple that arrived at the same time had left, and we hadn't even seen our appetizers. I called over the waiter, calmly explained the situation, and after waiting another 10 minutes, he came over to tell us that our order had not been entered into the computer, and that he just put it in. He offered to comp the drinks, and 20 minutes later we got our food. It was mediocre at best and not cheap considering quality/service - tasted worse than ragu. We had 2 bites, then had them take it away because we were no longer hungry. they then brought us the bill for the full meal - drinks (which they offered to comp), appetizers, and main course. When we asked to speak to the manager, his response was "it happens sometimes....why don't you just enjoy your meal?". I will not dwell on this point as it will cause my blood pressure to rise. The bottom line is that the food is not cheap or well-prepared, the service is very poor, and the atmosphere is nothing to write home about.

Eaten here a few times so decided to have Mother's Day Dinner here-it was a mistake. Was initially told the regular menu would be available. When we arrived it was a price fixe menu with limited options, overpriced and no children's menu. The service was poor, the food was mediocre, we left hungry, were charged a full adult price for children under 10 and the bill was over the top given those factors. Unfortunately, where I would've continued to dine here I won't and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone anymore either.

Great for delivery! The penne a la vodka and carbonara are excellent, as are the chicken parm dinners. All the basics are well done here. The dining experience at the restaurant is nice as well. The decor is a bit cheesy, but hey, at least your not in Jersey. Friendly wait staff and attractive bartenders/hostess. Dessert cart is a definite must.

i loved the westside one but i love this one even more. i order from there at least once a week and no matter what i feel like having, even if it's not on the menu, they make it! whenever i eat in, it's an even more amazing experience (and one my friends talk about frequently).

I called Coppola's at 8:00 for an 8:15 reservation for 11 on a Saturday night and they accomidated us! I have to say, based on my poor planning, this was an excellent experience. Unfortunately, they served my boyfriend's meal cold and it took 30 minutes to come back out of the kitchen. Other than that, everyone was pleased with the quality of the meal. This is a new neighborhood favorite.

Out of towners enjoy good food but not necessarily NYC prices, so after reading the ratings and reviews at menupages.com and considering the bitter cold temperatures we decided to try Coppolas a neighborhood restaurant near the Beacon Hotel. The service was prompt, the menu varied enough to allow the three of us to try an old favorite, a new temptation and a standard for comparison. Sam, our waiter was prompt but allowed us ample time to review all the choices on the four page menu. The food was well prepared, al dente when expected, flavored traditionally with fresh herbs and spices and brought to the table at a temperature just hot enough to keep you from wolfing down the rest of the dinner. I felt the price was moderate at $12.00 - $17.00 per entree.

Have walked past here a thousand times and finally tried it out. It far exceeded my exspectations. The food was excellant- especially the Sea Bass with ink linguine. I would have been willing to pay far more for the experience - the food was that good. Highly recommended.
