“Excellent All Around!!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

We have been going to Coppola's for over 30 years, and it is every bit as good as it was back then!! We come from Long Island, NY, and just in the area with family and friends for the Dutchess County Fair, and we just had to go to Coppola's for dinner! We made a reservation for 12 people, and the table was all ready for us right on time. The way they set the table was great, they put a round table at the head so everyone could talk to one another, brilliant! The food is outstanding, and the sauce that is served with the meals is superb. We all had the Zucchini blossom fritters that were so light and delicious made from an egg batter with their marinara sauce on the side for an appetizer, I am still craving for more of it!! The people that work here are family, and it shows how much they have pride in their restaurant. The food here is every bit as good, if not better than some famous Italian restaurants in Manhattan, and a better value!! The Desserts are a must too! Drinks are wonderful, thanks John!!! Just go, you will love this place!!!

“August Antipasti”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Gardens of local abundance help make August Antipasti happen and the zucchini blossoms I enjoyed were excellent, rivaling CIA prepared appetizers! The blossoms were prepared in a slightly spiced batter served with Coppola's famous marinara sauce (which they bottle for sale) on a bed of lettuce topped with a sprinkling of Parmesan. YUM
The remainder of the meal was fantastic as usual, leaving no room for dessert. Eggplant rollatini, soup or salad and mixed veggies nit the spot.
The Coppola family always walks the dining room to check on their patrons and take a few moments for a friendly gab.
A favorite.

You cannot beat this price for a very welcoming atmosphere and good food. We are always pleased. There is a full range of breakfast foods as well as hot dinner choices and homemade desserts.

Reviewed 8 June 2014

Decent food and a friendly atmosphere? We needed gluten free options and there were several which is unusual.

“Better than expected; maybe 3.5, maybe 4?”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This restaurant is still very 70s. It doesn't feel like much has changed (though the signed picture of Nixon on the wall is from the early 80s, so maybe i'm off in my timing).
The food though was good, and solid value. The gnocchi was light and the classic chicken parm was exactly as it should have been. The side of pasta was slightly salty (also right on) and the homemade sauce was good. The bread sticks and rolls, also good and plainly made in house.
Despite a lot of cars in the parking lot, it was fairly quiet inside - it must pick-up more at supper because it wouldn't survive long on what we saw at 1:00. The atmosphere is also likely better at night. It's a dark decor and likely looks better in low light.

It's likely not a destination restaurant and it's the farther thing from contemporary or modern or trendy, so for goodness sake don't go in expecting anything like that. But after the much-hyped nearby destination restaurant was a total bust for us (hello, Culinary Institute of America) finding food a couple of minutes away that wasn't the DQ and that was real and tasty was good news.
