Coppola's West

It has nothing to do with the famous moviemaking family, but this is the Italian restaurant from central casting. The scene: exposed brick, wooden beams and bottles of Chianti. The script: a perfect balance of pastas, meat dishes and personal pizzas. And what do the reviewers say? No brilliant performances but a good deal of competence. Pastas fell victim to overcooking, but their dressings, led by a white clam sauce bursting with large, whole mollusks in the shell, will take you by surprise. Chicken Contadina, diced poultry with spicy Italian sausage, satisfies hearty eaters. The reasonable prices for big portions convince most customers to give this Coppola two thumbs up.

Coppola's West cancelled my Open Table reservation 3 1/2 hours before the reservation time, which was 8pm on Friday, June reason given. They then didn't answer their phone. I had friends on the train from DC and we were told so late that I could not get a reservation at the same time in a comparable restaurant.

There is no way to submit a review about my experience on Open Table as you are not able to if your reservation is not honored/does not take place. NOOO consequences for Coppola's West. I have to wonder how often this happens.


In general I prefer the Murray Hill location of Coppola's better, but the UWS location is great as well! Great food, great staff, it's just the restaurant size is a lot smaller. But overall a very positive experience!
