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!

We love this spot - it's a smallish neighborhood spot with reliably excellent food. This time we sampled the celery caesar (one of our favorites) and the roasted octopus for starters, and the gnocchi and a salsiccia pizza for dinner. All had loads of flavor and were very well prepared. Definitely worth a trip!

Food, service and ambiance were perfect! My only reservation was that the music plus noise level made it hard to converse.

GREAt food, very pleasant service but ambient noise from music left us roaring our voices to converse over tiny tables and the very cool air con on an already cool evening left us uncomfortable. Might go back

There we 3 of us and we had to sit at a 2-person table. When we asked for a larger table they said that is where they sit 3 people parties. It was ridiculously small and hard to fit food and drinks.

A comfortable Italian neighborhood restaurant. Excellent food - the pastas were particularly good - and very reasonable prices. Service was quick and the waiter knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend, and plan to come back.

We ordered the cheese and meat plate, burrata, spaghetti and gnocchi. We loved all of the dishes except the gnocchi. While the gnocchi was cooked properly and the flavors were good, there was way too much salt so it took away from the other flavors of the dish. I would still highly recommend the other dishes though.

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Coppa. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. We enjoyed the spring salad , caesar salad , octopus, simple but delicious margarita pizza and a wonderful tubular pasta with escargot and pesto. Lots of sharing plates.
Everything was prepared exceptionally well with a beautiful presentation. Would love to go back. Great neighbourhood spot.
Thank you !

Great food but probably my least favorite of the Ken Oringer / Jamie Bissonet combos while being the most aggressively priced. This might lend to it being the better of these restaurants for a special, small group get-together versus a date night.

Birthdays and brunch. Table was available exactly at time reserved. Food was outstanding but comes out of the kitchen as finished, so there is no real order. Our meals were served over 1:15 which was a bit excessive. Do not plan on a quick meal. Great people watching both inside and outside the restaurant. The perfect millennials joint.

Restaurant was ready to seat us at the time of our reservation. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Food is meant to be shared, tapas style, and comes very quickly. The small table gets crowded with dishes very quickly. Suggest ordering in pieces. Food was delicious and delightful. We'll go back the next time we are in Boston.

Food was really great and service excellent. The place is a bit small and it gets quite loud but the dining experience is worth it. The wine list, however, needs to be improved to match the quality of the food. Bottom shelf wines by the glass and a meagre wine list to choose from.

I’ve been a customer at Coppa for a long time. However, I was really disappointed with the service today. We ordered many things with the pasta being our main, but the first thing that was served was the pasta. When we asked the waiter why the pasta came out first, he responded that the order of the food served is based on the order that we ordered them, which is unacceptable considering we ordered the pasta last as well. He offered to take it back and bring out a new one later. Later, we were served that same dish of pasta, which was very cold and dry. The restaurant should do a better job training its employees to not come up with the sorry excuse such as the one described here.

The service was great. The food portion was small relative to the price. The pizza was fantastic except that I didn't enjoy it too much since a lot of it was burnt and being conscious about ingesting carcinogens was not the best feeling. Otherwise it was very tasty but on the pricey side for their portion size.

One of my favorite spots for brunch! Beautiful to watch all of the families and dogs pass by. Their brunch menu is a great mix of egg based dishes, and the opportunity to have more classic Italian favorites like pizza and pasta. A very homey space that my friends and I enjoyed catching up and lingering in.

Overall it was good, wouldn't say GREAT. Feels very much like Kava which is around the corner except it's Italian. Food was above average for Italian, but you are also paying for it. I would go again as it's a fun place, but if given the choice between that and Kava I would pick Kava, unless you don't like Greek food.

Ken Oringer does it again! The soft shell crab special was one of the best dishes I have ever had! Our service was impeccable and we loved the overall ambiance. the outdoor seating was spectacular, in such a great neighborhood in the South End. We love Toro, Uni and Little Donkey, so we now love Coppa as well.
