Official Opening Night at Osteria Coppa (sister restaurant to Sam’s Chowder House) in Downtown San Mateo was a success! The new restaurant was abuzz with friendly-foodies looking very content with what was being severed up from the uber-fresh menu offered on August 25th, 2010. This lively spot has a real place in San Mateo, different in a great way and I feel like it will be welcomed with open arms.
What differentiates Osteria Coppa from other Italian Restaurants in the area is the farm-to-table style they are maintaining on the daily. With a constantly revolving menu, using only the fresh and sustainable from nearby, this is a winner with the healthy and fit-for-foodie crowd.
We started the meal out by sharing the Margherita Pizza and the Artichokes (side-dish)–both wonderful. With help of the owner(s) we selected a bottle of the La Spinetta Ca’ Di Pian, Barbera d’Asti, Piedmont 07, a great compliment to all of our main courses. I, personally, had the Meatballs della casa with Dirty Girl Farms cauliflower and young broccoli– SUPER great and big enough that it’s almost a meal for two! Everyone else seemed to enjoy their dishes as well, leaving not much on our plates when finished (always a sign of yum, yum food).
Don’t wait long before making your opentable reservations for dinner at this new spot you’re sure to enjoy!
Note: Outdoor, patio dinning available while the good weather lasts!
