This is a beautiful part of California and the Winery/Restaurant is beautiful. This is a vacation spot where you can visit and swim in the pool, have a wine tasting, relax outside on the patio and have a dinner. A perfect day.

May 11 Entering this resto is like entering a well-preserved Italian palace. Every imaginable detail was transferred to make this the grandest and most visible spot in the Alexander Valley. One does not need directions to find this place; one can see it off the freeway, like seeing the lights of Las Vegas when approaching by air. Luckily we were... More

I had read many of the reviews for Rustic and decided we needed to visit. However, the day we were in Geyserville area turned out to be a Tuesday when Rustic offers "A Tavola". It sounded like fun, so we went ahead. However, we were greatly disappointed comparing the reviews we had read. It was nothing more than a glorified... More

We went for dinner for a friends birthday while we were visiting California. Reservations are necessary but so worth it. The menu offers a variety of options and the food was absolutely delicious!!!!

Authentic Rustic Italian Cuisine, the freshest ingredients, with great service. Many dishes you will not find anywhere else in America. Expensive but well worth it for the experience, the ambience and the view.

I will start by saying that I loved the view and the ambiance of this restaurant. We had a group of 8 and the service was fantastic. Was a bit concerned when the rigatoni and meatballs came out thought I would still be hungry, was I wrong. The portion was ver deceiving and the meatballs were fantastic. Other faves at... More

The setting could not be more perfect. Great views over the vineyards, gorgeous gardens, majestic architecture. You can dine indoors or out. Service is gracious and helpful. The food is pretty standard Italian fare - not particularly innovative or inspiring.

Wow! Coppola's was amazingly good and I would eat here everyday if I could. My wife and I came to celebrate an early birthday, we ate the courses pre-determined for wine tasting and it was so much more than expected. If you are in the SF/Northern California area, you cannot leave without coming and eating here!

It was my birthday, so my wife spirited me off to Healdsburg area. We love the Rustic. I had Bastilla--Middle Eastern dish with cinnamon and pastry. My wife had a more traditional pizza. Before dinner, they serve something like a Beignet--but Italian. Excellent--just like the service. Prices are moderate considering what is offered.

I have been a wine family member at FCW for five years, long before Rustic existed. I looked forward to the restaurant opening with a little anxiety, but it has proved itself time and time again to be a great addition. I am never worried about bringing friends there or trying new things on the menu. From the service to... More
