This restaurant came highly recommended and we couldn't have been more disappointed. We ordered the vegetable carpaccio and two pasta dishes; they were all very bland. The portion sizes were not generous for the prices, which are certainly high for this neighborhood. The atmosphere is very festive and the garden is beautiful, but the food was too unimaginative and bland to ever recommend this restaurant.

My favorite Italian place in the city--definitely a well-kept secret! Gorgeous garden (request seating there when you make your reservation), and the extraordinary food has the taste of pride and care. At dinner, try the crab-stuffed gnocci (best I've ever had); at brunch, the french toast is a must--served with sweet marscapone cheese and fresh strawberries on hommade bread. Simple, bountiful fare, well-priced for the quality, and a lovely wine selection. A great spot for a romantic dinner!

Went their last night anticipating a great meal. But was disappointed to say the least, the salad came out wilted with a little olive oil on it and the pasta was overcooked. The precursor of the meal was the bread bland and cold.

One of my very favorite Italian restaurants in the city--up there with L'Impero and Apizz (it has closer cousinage with the latter). The fare at I Coppi is honest, comforting and always delicious. Pastas can be ordered in appetizer portions, as prelude to wonderful dishes such as the grilled wild-boar or the rack of lamb. Dining in the garden is highly recommended despite the rather severe lack of lighting. The wine list is good, offering some very respectable bottles that won't ruin the budget. If you are in a hurry, let us say, for a play further uptown, it is a good idea to let your server know, as getting the check con sometimes be a wait. I Coppi is most definitely worth the trek slightly off the beaten track.

The gnocci is intense, I tell you that much. Intense. It is a orange gin cream sauce, with crab stuffed gnocci. Awesome. Peace

I Coppi is such a lovely restaurant and has absolutely delicious food. You can tell it's made with great care. I especially love their zucchini soup - made with no cream, but full and rich and their impeccable scallops are the best in the city. They also have a wonderful brunch - unmatched by any other restaurant I've been to in the city. Their bread is so good! The absolutely beautiful garden is one of the best kep secrets around. I'm almost afraid to post this because I want to keep it all to myself.

We were very pleased with brunch. They bake their own bread (delicious), good service, beautiful flowers all around, pleasant service and very tasty meal. You will enjoy this place and you will definitely go back!
