The Italian restaurant Coppa Osteria sits in the courtyard of a luxury apartment complex in Rice Village, and the swanky energy follows you through the front doors. With white tablecloths and candlesticks abound, dining at Coppa Osteria feels sweet and a little sexy. Come in your best date night fit to tackle fried gulf shrimp and calamari, tender bolognese made overnight, and a chicken parmesan all but drowned in marinara sauce. Between the pastas and dishes that are straight up focaccia bread with an assortment of butter, the carb wall can hit hard and fast at Coppa Osteria. But try your best to leave some room for a few forkfuls of tiramisu.
