Meet Guglielmo: Behind-The-Scenes of “a tavola” (Episode One)

We proudly present the first in a series of behind-the-scenes videos on "a tavola," our Tuesday night dinner experience at Rustic, Francis's Favorites. In our premiere episode, we meet Guglielmo (AKA Papa Gui AKA Nonno), the grumpy, quick-witted grandpa who's always ready with a story, a magic trick, and scissors in case your pasta is too long. 

Welcome to 'a tavola'

Meaning “to the table,” a tavola is a casual dining experience inspired by Francis Coppola’s favorite way of enjoying a meal. Like eating at your family’s home, there are no menus.
