Named for Francis Ford Coppola's venerable production company, American Zoetrope, Cafe Zoetrope is located in the majestic Sentinel Building, a San Francisco historic landmark in the heart of North Beach. We are a European-style cafe and offer authentic Italian cuisine and a wide selection of Italian and Californian wines, including our premium offerings that we carry exclusively at our wineries, cafes, and online store.
Cafe Zoetrope, opened in 1999, was created with much thought from Francis Ford Coppola. Many of the items on the menu are his own recipes and the European ambience is something he cultivated.

Rustic, Francis's Favorites
Drawing on a life that has taken him around the world, Francis Ford Coppola shares his personal pantheon of recipes at Rustic, Francis’s Favorites, the winery’s full-service restaurant. Set in a Sonoma County-casual atmosphere, Rustic’s menu embraces international as well as traditional Italian dishes, with an emphasis on family-style dishes that features fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from the property’s organic herb and produce garden.
Delicious pastas, pasta sauces, and more – each inspired and approved by the Family Coppola, and perfect for dinner at home. Mammarella pays homage to Francis Ford Coppola’s mother, Italia Pennino Coppola. Beautiful at every age, Italia wanted her grandkids to call her Mammarella, Dear Little Mama, rather than Grandma, a name she thought sounded too old for her.
