Anniversary Adventuring Part II

Anniversary Adventuring Part II: Dinner @ Osteria Coppa

See Part I here!

We had dinner on the night of our actual anniversary at Osteria Coppa in downtown San Mateo.  We've walked by it at night before and it always looked so fancy pants and nice!  So we decided to splurge for our anniversary meal!

Top: Margherita Pizza
Bottom: Raviolo - Ricotta Cheese, Farm Egg, Brown Butter (left), Tagliatelle Bolognese (right)
The Margherita Pizza was quite delicious.  Super thin crust. 

The Raviolo was unique, but not that awesome (to us).  As you can see, it's one giant ravioli that's filled with ricotta cheese and runny egg in the middle, with brown butter sauce.  Tim actually ordered this one but we ended up swapping since he doesn't like runny eggs.  The ricotta cheese was too much for and the brown butter sauce was way too rich.  :( 

The Bolognese was quite tasty, but nothing to rave about. 
All in all, it was a fun experience but sad to say, I don't know that we want to go back.  It does say that many of the dishes are meant to be shared -- so maybe it wasn't meant for one person to eat that whole ravioli and we were doing it all wrong.  {shrug}  But I want to love my food at $18-20/entrée for pasta!  The service was also meh.  The server had a few tables but even when it wasn't that busy he didn't pay much attention to us - always sweeping by.  However, I think it's worth trying at least once.  They also do lunch on weekdays (only weekdays!) that would be a great way to give them a try at a very affordable price.  (Though I think it's sandwiches and not these pasta dishes.  Check their website!)
Have you been to Osteria Coppa?  Did you love it?
