Coppa Osteria

5210 Morningside Drive Houston, TX 77005 | Kirby-West U | 713-522-3535

Location Description:

Coppa Osteria, which opened in early September 2013, is the more casual cousin of Coppa Ristorante, a staple of Houston Italian food since 2010. Chef Brandi Key conceptualized the Kirby-West U osteria as a place to bring the family for a pizza, and it even has a pizza-by-the-slice window so guests don't have to worry about making reservations or sitting through a lengthy meal. All the pizza dough is made in the central dough room, which looks out on the dining room, allowing people to watch their pies being prepared. Most of the pasta is made in-house as well, and the menu even features gluten-free pasta options. Many of the dishes at Coppa Osteria can also be found at Coppa Ristorante (for the same price), though Key's updated classics like spaghetti carbonara with parmesan cream sauce and linguine with Gulf shrimp fit right in at the swanky new restaurant with decorative candelabras, baroque-framed mirrors and simple wooden tables and chairs.
