Osteria Coppa Restaurant Review

: This San Mateo restaurant inspired by Italy’s slow food movement is owned by the people behind Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, and helmed by executive chef Chanan Kamen, who spent his last five years under the tutelage of Quince’s Michael Tusk. Kamen brings to Coppa his intimate knowledge of handmade pastas, immediately evident in such dishes as the rigatoni served with tender octopus, brightened with mint and chili oil. Delicate house-made agnolotti are stuffed with luscious bits of guinea hen, pork and veal. There are a few misses, such as the hand-rolled pizza topped with shrimp, pesto and arugula. The thin crust never achieves the desired blistered effect and comes off as undercooked. The wine list is impressive in its generous selection of mid-priced wines, 99 percent of which are Italian. Lemon verbena panna cotta is a refreshing ending to the meal. The space itself is rather straightforward: earthy beiges and browns lit by splashes of red. Seating near the bar takes on a more speakeasy feel, while the large outdoor patio with bistro lighting is pure romance.
