The wild mushroom risotto was great and the pizza as well but the portobello stufged mushrooms for appetizers exceeded our expectations! Good value for great food!

Nice variety of appetizers and main courses. Friendly and good service. Whatever you order will be delicious. Had eggplant parmesan and hubby had Penne with meatballs and bolognese. Both delicious and hot.

Even though it was very busy, the staff were efficient and friendly. Healthy sautéed vegetables with eggplant parmigiana was absolutely wonderful! No reservations, unless the group is large. .

It is primarily an Italian restaurant. I usually order the salmon but my spouse enjoys the pasta dishes. The entree is inclusive of salad and bread. Good food and service. The weekends are very busy and usually there is a lineup for a table after...More

Great food, excellent service. If you're looking for real Italian food in Niagara, this is the place. Love that they play the Godfather Soundtrack. Best. Meatballs. Ever.

Great service, great atmosphere (relaxed), great salads and pastas. There's nothing really left to say. Anything you order will be 5-star quality at Coppola's...

Hello, We will be coming from watching the curling at the Meridian Centre and will be dressed casually. Will this be appropriate?

Yes, that would not be a problem at all. It is not a formal restaurant and lots of people were dressed casually.
Hi 2jerseyfrogs: Re: Your review about Coppola's in St. Catharines. Why would you be ignorant enough to assume your currency would be honoured in another country? You entered a different country, show some respect. “If you are american - stay away.” 2 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days ago NEW Firstly, Coppola's does not take reservation. We were greeted nicely and put on a list. I ordered a drink at the bar and paid in U.S. dollars. My drink was $8.50 which, for the us conversion, would have been less than $7.00 U.S. dollar. I gave a $10 dollar bill but my change given back in Canadian coinage was less than $1.00. When I question the change with the bartender she just waved and left. We were told it would be 10 to 15 minute wait and after 40 minutes we were offered a high top table off the bar. Not wanting to wait any longer we took the table. Service was marginal, food average but when the check came they refused to honor the 20% plus exchange rate for U.S. money. Throughout our vacation, Coppola's was the only business to try and keep the 20 - 25% conversion rate. A business who rapes customers by over 20% of a bill should be banned by all customer!

Can you imagine if I walked into a restaurant in San Diego and handed them a bunch of Canadian bills to pay the tab. "Stupid is as stupid does".
