i Coppi

  • p

Aside from the Battarga (recent thread on this board)
any reports on overall experience at this new spot?
Food, service, room, details all appreciated.

  1. The food, while OK, is by no means great. And it is
    WAY overpriced. Almost everytime I have been to I
    Coppi, my dinner companions commented on the size of
    the bill. If the food were exceptional or if the
    restaurant wasn't on a rather seedy E. Village block,
    i would not have such an issue with the high prices.
    I must admit, however, that the restaurant is
    visually appealing, and the outdoor garden is quite a
    treat in the summer.

    1. re: Brian

      I agree with all that Brian said. We were there 3 weeks ago and I left with such bad indigestion (something that never happens to me). Was it the food or was it the bill? I don't see the big deal here.
      We went to Babbo last night, now that's a big deal. In advance of the avalanche of criticism anyone seems to get for voicing a negative opinion -- that's just the way it was for us. End o' story.
