This is a very big place, with a big menu. When a place claims to make everything under the sun you have you wonder. We shared some seafood with pasta and some veal scallopini. Plates were to large for humans and everything tasted the same...More

My girlfriends and I returned to Coppola's after several years. I have fond memories of their calamari which is featured as an appetizer, but large enough for an entree. The accompanying aoli was not as I remembered it, tasting more like Ceasar dressing. The food...More

Very good all around. 5 of us for dinner, at least one person had the pasta special, I had fillet mignon, others had snapper, pastas. Everyone happy with their meals. Calamari appetizer was excellent. Lightly dredged with flavourful dips. House and Caesar salads very good....More

We had the gnocchi which were like little bullets. No salt whatsoever. The veal parm was dry and the side pasta was mushy baby food. Would rather sit at home and microwave a hungryman.

Several years ago we visted another restaurant in St. Catherines. After waiting 20 long Minutes for service I looked on TripAdvisor and found Coppolas. Its been our favorite restaurant for years. We live in Hamilton but drive here for lunch at least once a month....More

Very popular Italian restaurant. Always busy, so make reservations if you can. Relaxing, elegant ambiance. Excellent pasta choices. Penne al Capone is my favourite. Gluten free and whole wheat pasta available. I think the extra charge on that is a rip because they don’t cost...More

Recently attended a memorial reception at this location and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food that was presented. Salads, antipasto, pizza, pasta and deserts were fresh and tasty.Servers all were friendly and efficient. Would recommend for any function.

Good food and very relaxed atmosphere. Good service and reasonably priced. You can actually hear when others are talking so the noise is minimal which makes a pleasant dinning experience

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".
