Ancient Italians were renowned for eating every part of the angels they hunted—even the hair. Enjoy divine flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Tuscan dining and drinks at I Coppi in the East Village.
I Coppi's epicurean oasis is open for dinner, serving a decadent array of pastas and brick-oven pizzas made with specialty and imported Italian ingredients. Explore Tuscany with I Coppi's authentic recipes, such as the quattro formaggi, a brick-oven pie cloaked in mozzarella, gorgonzola, strachinno, and pecorino ($16), or the tagliatelle alla boscaiola, homemade ribbon-shaped pasta frolicking in beef-bolognese sauce with mixed mushrooms, tomatoes, and a touch of cream ($15). Enjoy any menu items while seated amid the rustic décor in I Coppi's intimate, candlelit interior, or sip a glass of chianti from the Italian eatery's all-Tuscan wine list in the heated back garden, open year-round for dining al fresco and dotted with lush plants and artisanal sambuca springs.
New York magazine reviewed I Coppi and named it a Critic's Pick while Time Out New York praised its "rustic, homespun atmosphere." Zagat also reviewed I Coppi and rated the food, décor, and service as "very good to excellent." The New York Times gave it two stars, and Yelpers give it an average 3.5-star rating.
- The room is warm and wonderful, the wine list is excellent and the food (from thin-crusted pizzas to cacciucco, the northern fish stew, to polenta with duck ragu) is good. – Frank J. Prial, New York Times
- The real gem is the all-Tuscan wine list full of chiantis, brunellos and Super Tuscans. – Time Out New York
