The rigatoni at Coppa.

Who doesn’t love the classic Martin Scorsese mob flick “Goodfellas”? Star chefs Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer clearly do: On Tuesday, April 25, they’ll host a four-course Italian feast at their South End restaurant, Coppa, inspired by the red-sauce haunts featured in the film. (Oringer is currently a finalist for Outstanding Restaurateur at the 2017 James Beard Awards.)

“It’s the best movie,” says Bissonnette, who will be on hand for the proceedings. “Ken and I love old-school Italian joints, and we wanted to serve some of those old classics and just have some fun.”

Their busy enoteca is usually known for uni carbonara and bone-marrow pizza. But they’ll swap out those delicacies for familiar dishes like clams casino, scallop piccata, rigatoni in vodka sauce (pictured), shrimp scampi, chicken parmesan, veal saltimbocca, and other garlicky essentials. For dessert, there’s cannoli (of course) and spumoni.

The festivities begin at 5 p.m. Dinner is $65 per person, and wine pairings are $35 extra.
