Coppi's Organic = Food-Borne Porn?


Three words: lamb sausage pizza. Coppi's restaurant has two versions of the brick-oven-baked delight. Both are amazing. But I especially love the Merguez which includes the delectably rich meat with ricotta, onion, rosemary, garlic...and get this, fresh sliced cucumbers on top of a fragrant tomato sauce. The contrast of the warm and spicey lamb, bread and cheese with the cool cucumbers is probably the closest you'll ever get to a foodgasm on U Street. (Did I really just write that?)Yeah, I did. And I won't apologize. It's that awesome. But it's called Coppi's ORGANIC, kids, organic...And I'm not sure if "Coppi" is someone's name or an evil play on words. If there is some subliminal messaging scheme happening, then the dining room is part of it. It's so dark in there that you can hardly see the menu...But that's okay, 'cause once the food gets to your table, all you need to do is throw your head back, close your eyes, and enjoy.


Wow, don't expect entries like this from me again...ever. This is a family show. And Coppi's is a nice, casual neighborhood restaurant. No big frills, just good, organic northern Italian-style food.

Mmmmm I know just what you're saying. I've had the pizza with lamb before. I'm not a big consumer of lamb, but I agree... mighty fine!

The food was ok but the service could be better. Food seemed a bit salty. rating: 7 out 10.
