Coppa Osteria is the perfect paring of food and lifestyle, taking its personality from the affluent, family centric West University, Southampton, Rice and Museum District neighborhoods. Its clientele is an eclectic mix of professionals, university academics and young families – who all seem to know one another. The Dough Room takes center stage – and is where all the energy starts for the handmade pastas and dough for pizza made daily. Chef Brandi Key’s Neapolitan inspired pizzas are some of the most popular items on the menu – the Coppa “Ham & Eggs” and Carnissima are crowd favorites. Diners also flock for the Bistecca alla Florentina, Burrata Pomodoro and Steamed Mussels with a white wine & garlic broth that begs to be soaked up with crisp garlic toast. A large outdoor patio is the ideal meeting place for an after-work aperitivo. A window-side pizza by the slice serves patrons in this pedestrian-friendly neighborhood. And a well-priced and extensive wine list and lively bar scene make for the perfect night out.
