Decent food.What did I remembe...

Decent food.What did I remember? The olives or I should say the olive plate. They were the best olives I have ever had! How different can they be? The only difference between green olives and black olives is ripeness. Unripe olives are green, whereas fully ripe olives are black. Some are big some are small. Such is life. It has to be how they are cured which in this case seems to be seriously, a warm cinnamon based fluid. Killer! <br>They are so good I'm going by tonight to get take out olives and bring them home and try to pair them with one of my mystery wines in the fridge... <br> <br>The ambience is very nice, warm earth colors mixed with romantic lighting. BUT the music is inappropriate for the restaurant. Kind of like playing &quot;I've got friends in low places&quot; in a 5 star restaurant bad. All the time. How bout Italian music? How novel.. <br> <br>The wine list was impressive. The owner/manager was pretty well informed. Lots of different wines from Italy as well as the standard Calfiornia Whites and Reds.. even a few french. They didn't skimp there. Would I go back? Would they please change the music?

Overall
Average at best

A friend recommended &quot;&quot; Coppa &quot;&quot; and promised the best of Italian dining. There was nothing distinctive about the food, service, or ambiance. I felt cramped with the seating arrangements. Limp salad; pasta was over-cooked. Only thing remarkable about &quot;&quot; Coopa &quot;&quot; was the over priced menu.

Overall
Some good notes, but not recommended

I went here on a Saturday in October for the first time with a small group of friends. The physical restaurant is nice, love the patio and the dining rooms. <br> <br>We got seated and I was already uncomfortable because of how close the tables were. I was expecting this to be a bit upscale, and when our server came over and handed us the menu, there was only a few hints that it was supposed to be: the prices and a few fancy ingredients. Otherwise it's a lot of standard Italian fare. The wait staff were Olive Garden grade. Polite but they didn't know how to pour wine, didn't know how to give us time to look at the menu, and my biggest turnoff was how they were horrible at reaching over everyone at the table to pour wine or serve plates. She was pleasant but not great. Bus boys and other food runners all the same caliber, banging plates and throwing food on the table like your mom did at home as a kid. <br> <br>The food is decent yet overpriced. $18 for most pasta plates. Most plates are surprisingly typical: lasagne, meatballs, other general pasta. VERY few meat dishes or non-pasta. They fancy it up with a few things that have truffle oil or an exotic cheese to it, but otherwise not all that exciting. It's either pizzas (again, $16 or so each) or pasta. There were no specials that day. The menu is limited, spare for the nice selection of &quot;&quot;bites&quot;&quot; and apps. Salads were boring, and my grilled caesar salad had the worst caesar dressing I've ever had with croutons so hard I nearly chipped a tooth. <br> <br>This place has potential but needs a better, more refined menu offering things like meat dishes and fish. A few home runs to note: their ahi tuna starter was excellent, and the lemon semifreddo dessert was also excellent. Skip the lame prosciutto breadsticks (the size of long pencils). Meatballs were tasty but not worth what they charged for an appetizer. There are much better options around town.
