We went in on a Friday night & only had to wait about 20 minutes. The appetizers were very tasty & the pasta in our main courses was made on site. Dessert was amazing & the service was delightful.

We're a little embarrassed that it's taken us this long to get to Coppa. After two visits in the last month, we're rating this one of the very best Italian restaurants in Houston. Coppa reminds us of the real-deal Italian places we grew up with...More
