Coppola Ristorante & Pizzeria

Dismal and bleak is the culinary landscape that is New Providence,NJ so to find a restaurant, WAIT A MINUTE, make that a culinary gem within miles from where I live is absolute rapture! I'd been hearing folks recommend Coppolas recently and it was landing on deaf ears due mostly to my own personal palate fatigue from trying so many red sauce Italian places with attached pizzerias in the area. Truly, the old adage of winners never quit and quitters never win is the lesson of the day, kids. Can you tell that I'm more than a little excited about Coppola's Ristorante? I visited this evening with my pal Jay who also had been told by some that it's their favorite place for Italian food. We chose the more formal side and were greeted by a very sweet and kind Rose, who I later found out is a Coppola herself. She asked if we had a reservation and we did not, rose made it a non issue and sat us right away. Now it is the middle of August and I'm sure when everyone and their mother comes back from vacation, waiting for a table just may be a necessary activity as this place is very popular with the local crowd. I usually order Linguine in White Clam sauce as my go to test dish when I try a new to me Italian restaurant but I've learned to ask if the clams are little necks or Manila clams. I was able to immediately ask my menu questions because Rose was attentive to us as any server has ever been. They offer the smaller Manila type clams so I opted for a different dish. A basket of housemade focaccia and water for our glasses seemed to land at my table before I even unfolded my napkin. A complimentary bruschetta rounded out our first impression of what will become a frequently visited favorite local restaurant for me. Jay and I shared the Fried Calamari that was beautifully cooked and had a light coating which made it perfect for a warm summer night. A delightfully light marinara sauce and a few lemon wedges accompanied the dish. My second go to test dish is Cabonara because it's few ingredients can be very telling about the talent or lack thereof in the kitchen. Please don't put salty bacon in my Cabonara. The chefs at Coppola's delivered a stunning rendition of this classic dish. Tender and delicate Pancetta, Sweet and crisp tender onions, an appropriate amount of creamy egg yolk and grated cheese; enough to detect yet not so much that it overpowered the dish, served over a thin spaghetti not over cooked yet I usually ask for very al dente and I failed to do so- my bad. I would have liked to be offered some fresh ground pepper, but again, that's my personal taste and if I wanted it, I should have asked for it. Jay had the Parpadelle with Sausage and it was fantastic as well. The flavor of the sausage was very good and I could tell it was of high quality. After dinner we made a point of making our exit through the pizzeria side so we could catch a glimpse of their Pizza offerings and we both agreed that it looked tasty with its thin crust and variety of toppings. We will definatley be sampling their pizza very soon. You must know that I have absolutely no connection to the Coppola family or their restaurant beyond being a pleasantly surprised and gratefully satisfied new customer. I am however a trained chef, no longer in the food business and I appreciate their respectful handling of the ingredients and the spot on execution of the cuisine of Italy that this restaurant represents.
The veggie pizza I had was crunchy and tasty, but a little greasy. I thought the eggplant pizza would be good but it just wasn't my taste. Maybe it was the marinara sauce on the pizza. When I was waiting in line, the man taking orders behind the counter took people in front of me. I never heard him say he was helping me (I do truly believe he asked me). But instead of, "Sorry about that, what can I get for you?" he just reiterated 3 times that he asked me if I was being helped... in a kind of defensive way and as if he were trying to convince me. It was a dinner pop on a Thursday evening, so I get it. But I don't need convincing in a defensive manner that you tried to help me and I just didn't hear you.
Coppola has the best tasting and widest selection of pizza that I've ever encountered. The rest of the menu is also clearly all made from scratch, using nothing but the freshest ingredients. I highly recommend the cheesesteaks, the pasta dishes, the seafood, and the Nona pizza. I've never had anything I didn't like. Try out their weekly specials too! The service is quick and effective. They try their best to provide a positive experience to all customers. I cannot recommend this establishment enough..go see for yourself!
