About

Coppa is an intimate enoteca tucked on a quiet side street in Boston's South End featuring Italian small plates created by James Beard Award-winning Chefs Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer. Everything is made with locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Coppa has an eclectic wine list, and unique cordial-based cocktails.

Please note that our patio is first come first serve and reservations are not accepted for outdoor seating. We only accept reservations for the dining room. A few tables as well as the bar are saved for walk ins. Due to our cozy setting, for reservations of parties over 4 people please call Coppa directly.

As Coppa is a small intimate restaurant with limited seats, we do ask if you are running late to please call and alert the host. If the party does not show up, the table is given away after 15 minutes. Thank you in advance!

Great experience for brunch. Food and drinks were so good! We look forward to things resolving with COVID-19 to come for a full dinner.

Food was delicious and our waiter was very nice and attentive . My only negative is how small the restaurant is and how closely you are sitting to others. Also they don’t have a full cocktail menu mostly just wine but food is very very good

COPPA REVIEW 3/3/20
We ate at Coppa 5pm yesterday and it was our first negative experience there, such that I am asking: “Does Coppa have a new chef ? ” Well the surprising answer, for me, is No. But why does he want to obliterate the clean dependable Island Creek Oyster flavor by over soaking it in a strong cranberry vinegar? All I can figure is that maybe the chef’s ego is greater than his wanting to showcase his excellent local product. The answer for me was to lift each oyster out of its overpowering vinegar bath , blot it, and eat it as is. Fantastic. The Celery Caesar was as scrumptious as ever. The scallop app. was nuanced and layered with unctuous treatments. The Arancini remain our favorite in the city. The very disappointing entrees were the Gemelli with its muddled flavors, and the Pizza which the menu description never mentioned- was covered with chili flakes. Our waitperson [she must be new] was slow and inattentive no matter how much we urged her to deliver our food. This affected considerably our overall experience there.
We will wait for some menu changes before returning.

Always delicious. The tagliatelle with pork sugo is equivalent to a bolognese but without the beef! A non-beef eaters dream.

Coppa was outstanding from start to finish. We had a couple of cocktails at the bar before our reservation, and the bartender made us a couple of great cocktails, and also let us know about his favorite menu items.
Our server was on point and gracious. (Thanks for chasing us down to let us know we forgot a pair of glasses!)
Each dish we ordered was superb, particularly the house made pasta dishes.
Make sure you order the zeppole, and if you are into amaro, go for the flight of three.

Gluten-free friendly, but not gluten-allergy friendly. Make sure you indicate allergy as it was clear that there is a lot of cross contamination that occurs in their kitchen.

Laid back atmosphere, fairly small restaurant. Fun drink options including variations of the aperol spritz. My favorite was the Alessio Spritz - nice and light. The cacio e pepe pasta (Gemelli) was melt-in-your-mouth good. I loved the sopressata pizza (always enjoy a nice combo of spicy sausage and a drizzle of sweet). Lastly (although first thing we ate), I enjoyed the Insalata salad. Big enough to share for two, and it had very thinly sliced pecorino on top that complimented the greens nicely. Will definitely be returning to this lovely spot!

Crazy overpriced for mediocre food masquerading as authentic Italian. We booked a reservation here after researching places and expecting it to rival our favorites in the Nj and NYC area. No such luck. Cheese was pre-sluced and dry on the charcuterie boards, pizza was overly salted and with only small drops of real mozzarella. Don’t waste your time or money.

We went last night for family dinner into this cozy little restaurant.
The staff was very friendly and helpful making us feel really wellcomed !
Everything we tasted was amazingly delicious!
The best and unique cezar’s salad so different from any other we have ever tasted! The Roasted broccoli and the arancini supported our estimate of an interesting diner to follow
The pizza was excellent and crusty
The tagliatelle con sugo simply unforgettable!
At the end Zeppole was awaiting us! Fluffy donuts with nutela
The most appropriate closing to a delicious dinner experience !
Definitely we will visit again!

I've loved coppa for a long time but this visit was a disappointment. Server neglected to bring us bread, even after we asked. Pasta dish came out first and servers kept trying to take it away before we were finished -- we were waiting for bread to try to enjoy the remaining sauce. It's a $20 something plate of pasta and not particularly large so we didn't really want to squander it. The crudo used to be maybe 8 small pieces of fish with fun garnish. Now it's 5. The rest of the meal was okay. Disappointing overall.

Anything in their menu is good to excellent! It’s a small restaurant, definitely try to make a reservation if you want to be seated without waiting for an hour. I had a white anchovy appetizer fresh and savory and a large pasta sheets with ox tail ragout for lunch the other day, omg it’s heaven in the plate, love it sooooo much I think about it all the time, yummmmy!!!

This place is great! The food is very good and perfect for sharing. The atmosphere is cozy, it’s not that big, but they’ve laid it out perfectly. The service is excellent. I’ve been here twice now, I highly recommend it. It’s popular, you need to call ahead and make a reservation.
