Had a hearty lunch after an interesting tour and wine tasting session at the winery. I had the frenched lamb rack and Sierra Nevada ale.

My husband always orders the Short Ribs Argentine style, because he can't think that anything could be better. I have tried roast chicken, calzone and pasta; all were good. The wine is also very good and at a reasonable price. There are also beautiful bars outside the restaurant and at poolside. You can make a day of it at the... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here. The food was delicious, the setting was charming, and the view was beautiful. Our only complaint was the service. We sat a very long time before someone even came to fill our water glasses. But all in all, a nice experience!

We drove about an hour to get there and it was worth it. The menu had a good variety of choices and, as it turned out, the food was very good. The service was outstanding -- everyone associated with the restaurant and winery was friendly, helpful and welcoming. Try to get a table on the patio where you have a... More

Wait staff apologetic but didn't make up for one of the slowest entree prep we've experienced in a long time. Meal ended up taking over 2 hours while the temperature dropped by about 20 degrees. Staff finally noticed and brought wrap for my wife. Bread was skimpy with a "lump" of dough per person. Tried to make up with 1... More

This dish was tasty and moist. The vegetables that accompanied it were wonderful too. I felt that since this was a nicer establishment grabbing the chicken and tearing it apart would not be the best way to handle the situation, especially after the waiter gave me a large sharp knife before the meal was served. So unless you are adept... More

As you walk up from the parking lot you can't help playing the Godfather music in your head. Attention to every detail washes over you. The restaurant itself has a beautiful outdoor patio with a magnificent view of the valley. The food is simply amazing and incredibly affordable. The wine list is at retail without the usual restaurant markup. No... More

Great outdoor dining - reasonable pricing - limited lunch menu, but sufficient choices, great wine selection at attractive pricing (as you might expect from a winery, but far from common in Napa/Sonoma !). efficient service. Food is above par and great value for money.

Being a HUGE Godfather fan that I am I knew that we would want to visit Francis Coppola's winery (the director of the movie). I made reservations at Rustic, the restaurant attached to the winery. I requested a scenic view and was treated to such a magnificent view I thought for a moment that we were actually in Italy! The... More

Food was adequate, servers good. Views spectacular. Busy outside seating empty indoors. Prices reasonable. This was my first visit, the items on the menu made the dishes seem quite appealing, the result, not so much.
