    Owned by Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather movies. The penne arrabbiata and Syrah wine, both at the waiter's recommendation, were awesome. Definitely coming back.

    Owned by filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, this cozy cafe serves up simple, hearty Italian food. Many of the wines poured here come from Francis Cord Coppola's vineyward, and movie memorabilia abounds!

    Good looking French brasserie interior, well executed classic Italian dishes and an epic tiramisu and panna cotta for desert.

    It's a pleasant atmosphere. Food was good. It had a New York feel to it. Felt the Francis Ford Coppola vibe here. The buidling is beautiful. Check it out.

    Located in the historic Francis Ford Coppola Building entering North Beach from the Financial District on Columbus. Enjoy the Neopolitan pizza, putanesca, or just order wine and eat bread =D

    The house wine (Coppola's own) is a great deal - I nearly always go for the appetizer plank and the arabbiata.

    The building containing this cafe houses several of Francis Ford Coppola's enterprises. He acquired the movie rights to "On the Road" in 1979.

    Well done New York pizza and pasta! Sit along the windows and watch the city roll by.

    Nice place to eat. However, my pasta took 40 minutes to come in an empty restaurant, and worst, they made a huge mistake in my order. $23 (or more) for a spaghetti and meatballs, was not worthy.

    They claim the Ceaser salad was invented here. At any rate it certainly was perfected here!

    Could have been a perfect meal, but we were forced to leave halfway through because of one incredibly noisy group. We weren't the only ones they chased away. It's a restaurant, not a sports bar!
