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... read 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

There is nothing quite as romantic and relaxing as dining on the patio at Rustic, on a beautiful, sunny day. I can't think of another restaurant anywhere nearby that can offer quite the outdoor dining experience that Rustic delivers...the view onto the vineyards is nothing short of sublime. We've been here several times, for both dinner and lunch, and can't... More

The RUSTIC offers a wide selection of menu items, some with special wine pairings, and all with extraordinary views of the surrounding vineyards and distant mountains through the giant windows on an upper floor.

Do not pass up a meal at Francis Ford Coppola's restaurant Rustic, Francis' Favorites. We were three couples winding our way through Napa and just happened to be at Coppola's vineyard mid-day. We had one of those memorable al fresco dining experiences where the wine flowed, the sun warmed and the soft breezes lulled us into a mellowness we didn't... More

What can I say...It was great, the food, wine, service everything. The menu is very well round with stuff from all over. We had 4 different entrees and 3 different appetizers all of which were good. Looking forward to our next visit.

The food and wine are excellent!! Sit on the terrace overlooking the vineyard. Very romantic! You can also view the movie memorabilia, buy souvenirs or sit by the pool prior to entering the restaurant. Staff are so welcoming and service is excellent!
