Coppa is a little hip yet small restaurant located in the outskirts of the South End of Boston. It’s a cozy little spot with tables and seats outside during the hot Boston summer days.
Coppa is a little quaint and casual Italian restaurant despite being a winner of a James Beard award a few years back. The interior is everything except pretentious yet it does come off as a hipster haven. It includes tables around the windows and front entrance. There’s a dark wood bar in the middle of the restaurant mixing espressos and brunch cocktails for those who had enough drinks the night before and those who did not.
The service was fantastic. I chose to sit at the bar as didn’t want to take up a table and I find it more comfortable at the bar. I didn’t have any issues with the service and found it pleasant. My bartender/server was very welcoming and friendly. We chatted up a storm, but it could have been because I was the only one at the bar.
Coppa’s menus consist of everything from salumi, small bar snacks, pasta to wood-oven pizzas. The Italian restaurant resembles a Spanish tapas bar because the small plates are meant to be shared among patrons. As with every Italian meal, there is complimentary bread served with olive oil instead of butter.
Now, the food. Coppa Boston
Coppa provides a very relax dining atmosphere with comforting and familiar flavors in South End Boston. The quality dishes were well thought out and the flavors robust without breaking the bank. It’s definitely one of the more memorable restaurants in Boston where the cannoli is king on the West End. The squid ink and farm egg on the pizza still haunts me til this day.
