Just a little more than two months after Coperta opened its doors for dinner at 20th Avenue and Logan Street, the Italian-American restaurant is ready to start serving lunch.
Executive chef Paul C. Reilly (also of Beast + Bottle) said the lunch menu will be a continuation of what they’ve been doing for dinner, “tailoring southern Italian ingredients to more of an American palate and the way we eat lunch here in the United States.”
The menu features antipasti, insalata, panini, pasta and meat dishes and sides. To drink, they have a selection of 14 varieties of win, coffee drinks, soft rinks and cocktails.
Lunch hours will be 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Coperta’s walk-up kiosk, which is already operating during dinner hours, will start serving during lunch, too. Reilly says pastries are coming soon.
Dinner hours are 5-9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5-10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Take a look at what Coperta has to offer:
Roman-style fried artichokes
Quattro: chévre, mozzarella, provolone, parmesean
Caponata: eggplant, pine nuts, arugula, chévre
Pizzaiolo: chicken, pepperoni, roasted tomato, mozzarela
