To start, the winery and surroundings are just beautiful. On this warn end-of-summer day, we could have sat outside with a patio umbrella, but choose inside where it was cooler and where we enjoyed the activity at the oven. There is a full bar, so we started with two bloody Mary's, $10 ea. They had just the right "kick". We... More

Sunny September afternoon on a shady terrace looking out across fields of grapevines to the mountains in the distance. And great food. What's not to like?! The meal began when a server brought out a little bakery bag holding four puffs of fried savory bread dough, hot from the fryer. I could have made a meal just on this bread... More

Our family has been to Rustic many many times, and have had one fantastic evening after another. Unfortunately, this last visit we had "that family" seated near us. Two small boys who felt that this was their own personal playground. The parents of these two actually encouraged their behavior by giving them 'Nerf' guns to shot at the other diners.... More

Rustic is beautiful, and the staff are wonderful. Sadly, the food is very, very sub par for the area. Go to Rustic for sunset cocktails, then head up the road to DiAvola for great food where all the locals actually eat.

This was a spur of the moment stop as we spied the winery while driving down the freeway. My husband loves Coppola wine and it was lunch time. We were curious more than anything. Alas, no wine tasting since we had a long drive back to LA ahead of us, but we did enjoy the ambiance of the place and... More

Dining overlooking the vineyards. Attentive staff. Great menu. There were 4 of us and we ordered a different dish so we could all try each other's. 1. The mushroom and sausage pizza. As good as the best in Naples. Enough to share. 2. The lemon chicken. The meat was so soft and fell apart. Extremely strong lemon taste accompanied by... More

We sat outside overlooking the winery which was amazing. Great wine and food was a little above average. Not a culinary delight but pretty solid. We had the lamb which was recommended by 2-3 staff it was pretty good. The zucchini fries appetizer was better. Go for the wine and the view the food is okay.

The ambience is certainly impressive if you sit outside overlooking the vineyards. Not too close to the wall that separates the seating area from the vineyards we still had a good view and a great breeze. A plus was that the property has several EV charging stations, one of which we used to recharge our Chevy Volt (albeit at an... More

Our family of four stopped for lunch only because we were starving and driving by on our way back from another winery. My husband is a picky eater and Italian, and this winery is a tourist trap, so I was worried when we walked in. We were seated on the patio at a table with a great view of the... More

Had a business lunch here. Staff are very good and knowledgable. A resort atmosphere which is unusual for a winery which tend to be quite stuffy. Food is very good. Highly recommended for where different.
