Rustic, Francis's Favorites

Open for lunch and dinner
Francis Ford Coppola shares his personal pantheon of recipes at RUSTIC, Francis’s Favorites, the winery’s full-service restaurant. RUSTIC’s menu embraces international as well as traditional Italian dishes, with an emphasis on family-style cooking that features fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from the property’s organic herb and produce garden. Authentic, Neapolitan-style pizzas are also a specialty.

A focal point of the dining room at RUSTIC is the Parrilla (pronounced “pah-REE-jah”), an authentic Argentine grill. Manned by the restaurant’s dedicated Asador, or grill-master, it provides a true South American experience of delicious, wood-grilled meats.

RUSTIC offers service in our casual dining room and on an outdoor terrace overlooking the vineyards of Alexander Valley. A bar adjacent to the restaurant also serves a full complement of cocktails and an extensive wine and beer

"The wait for food was longer than usual, the waiter disappeared a lot, didn't check on water or wine enough, promised to bring more of a dish and didn't. Additionally, this was a birthday dinner and he forgot to bring the survival treat. The food was very good and the winery was beautiful. I hope for better service next time."

"Celebrated Mother's Day early due to tight schedule. It ran smoothly from reservations to dessert and more. This place rocks! The request for view of Alexander Valley was done during reservation and that's exactly what they gave us no ifs no buts. Maitre d' was very helpful when asked about the winery including the type of grapes around the veranda and the extremely vast area occupied by the vineyard. The salad was just right and didn't overwhelm us. Lamb was fantastic (so tender the meat was falling off the bone) and the serving presentation was uniquely Moroccan. Pasta dish was al dente and very satisfying. Glass of cabernet was so fresh and imbibing it on the place where it was fermented was totally awesome! The lemon tart oh boy we're planning our next trip already before we left the place.
In a nutshell the Mother was excited and had a blast! I'm very happy we chose the place. This is truly an experience elevated."

"Service was slow. Pretty much forgotten. Expensive menu although you could go with a sandwich and get no side with it. Unless you want to call a couple of peppers a "side". Food was NOT memorable and actually mine was bland and boring. You're pretty going there for the beautiful and amazing view. So you decide."

"The only thing that saved this experience was our wonderful and professional server.
Aside from that, the food was inedible - literally . The pasta with white clam sauce was unlike anything Ever tasted - the sauce was astringent and the dish was sent back. The pizzas we order were flabby at best - the sausage and mushroom pizza was very bland and the sauce on the plain pizza was acidic. The escarole side dish was heavily over salted and was never finished. The stuffed mushrooms were horrible and its breadcrumb stuffing grainy and flavorless.
It was a wasteful time to drive there from Napa and a huge waste of money.

"We are first family members of the winery and love to visit and taste then have lunch at Rustic. The service was great as always, but the food this time, was not the best we've had. We shared a cho cho salad, which was fine and a pizza luigino, which we order almost every time we are here. This time, the pizza was not very good. Half the pizza had no cheese on it and it was overall lacking in flavor. Hopefully this was a one time random thing. I would be disappointed if this place was going down hill."

"A mid-afternoon late lunch on a nice Saturday was both enjoyable and interesting. A part of the Coppola Winery just off Highway 101 in Geyserville, being at Rustic is much like being at an entertaining "adult Disneyland." Lots of distractions, lots of visitors. For a mid-afternoon meal, the pizza and pasta selections were very good. As my wife commented, "everything is very good in quality, but there's hardly a healthy selection on the menu." Again, rather like being at "adult Disneyland." Nothing wrong with that. When busy, service is a little slow and distracted, but sitting on the outdoor patio provides a nice setting to just converse with friends at the table. Bargain insider: as one might expect, all of the Coppola Winery produced wines are very well priced on the wine list and accompany the heavy Italian style cuisine admirably. A pleasant afternoon was had."

"We are "locals" (Cloverdale) and again we enjoyed the great food, the wonderful service, great gift shop and Ambiance, however: the noise level is horrible! I could not hear our guests from England. I cannot fully enjoy our meals while shouting across the table! Please find a remedy to control noise level."

"My wife and I made reservations for a Sunday evening dinner. The premises of Coppola winery is very beautiful and immaculate as you would expect. The history of Mr. Coppola 's influence and films that he has directed is overwhelming ( in a good way). Unfortunately, the food and the food service was not up to par with everything else there. I had a special pairing of food along with reserve wines. The wines were OK but not what you would expect for reserve wines. The dinner consisted of anti pasta, salad, lamb, and a lemon tart. The appetizer was great, but the Cesar salad had a strange taste and not pleasant. The lamb was not tender and was not at all what I expected for lamb (if you like Del Friscos lamb you will be disappointed). The tart for dessert was good. My wife's steak was ordered medium rare and came out well done at the same time my lamb arrived. No one came to check on how the steak was cooked. She sent the steak back and when it came back it was rushed and it showed. It felt like we had to flag someone down for everything. I would recommend going to see the place, but nothing more. It was the furthest northern place that we went and the most disappointing. It's an hour and 15 minutes one way from our hotel in Napa."
