Slated to open its doors in downtown San Mateo this Wednesday, ~OSTERIA COPPA~ will offer housemade salumi (like lomo, mortadella, and duck prosciutto), antipasti, and handcrafted artisanal pasta and pizza from chef Chanan Kamen (Quince, Jardinière). The pastas are sure to feature a deft touch due to Kamen’s time making pasta at Quince; one of my favorites, agnolotti dal plin (filled with veal, pork, and guinea hen) is on the menu. There’s also a spacious bar (40 seats), featuring Italian cocktails and a mostly Italian wine list with wines available by the quartino. The 40-seat patio will allow diners to take advantage of San Mateo’s great weather, and the 100-seat main dining room features hewn wood floors, white butcher paper-topped tables, and butter yellow walls. 139 South B St. at 2nd Ave., San Mateo, 650-579-6021.
