Taking its name from the production company of legendary film creator Francis Ford Coppola, Caf� Zoetrope in San Francisco, CA is tucked into the landmark Sentinel Building. A European style caf�, it offers authentic Italian fare in an unforgettable setting. It also serves up wine from Coppola's vineyard to work perfectly with the dishes.
The menu at Caf� Zoetrope is perfect for a family or group of friends, including shareable starters like the picatta tray full of cheeses and meats. There are many large and amazingly fresh salads, panini sandwiches and impressive house specialties at Caf� Zoetrope. Plenty of pasta options along with pizza and calzones keep things casual, and there are many fun cocktails to savor if you prefer.
Service was superb, food was great.
Loved the ambience , my wife's food was very good, my short ribs were very tough and hard to eat, salad was very nice
Particularly delicious homemade tiramisù and panna cotta.
We were greeted and taken to the nicest corner table. The menu was varied and interesting. We appreciated the service of our waiter and their willingness to let us sit at the table for awhile. Very interesting decor and setting!
Not a bad place, just not what you'd expect for North Beach Italian. Food was ok, service ok, ambience pretty nice but next time will look elsewhere.
Good spot, pizza Orginale was great,thin crust , simple, delicious, lovely pizza! Listen to your waitstaff, they are in the know,...it is $$ tho..
The bar is best for wine as it being FFC. Cocktails are limited (at least in my visits). There are wine tastings, but we didn't partake, however, the offerings sounded nice. After prime lunch hours are the way to go, however, there isn't a happy hour or a decreased price menu. In my and the waitstaff opion , do not order the cannoli,the tiramisu is MUCH better. So good ordered another to go, but sadly we left our to go box at the table... Wow it it was fabulous, so bummed...
Loved everything: the building, what it means to cinema lovers, the menu, the ingredients, the wine, the interior design, and the kind attention of waiters. I had pizza, pasta, cafe, wine, dessert... loved it so much, that I visited 4 times in less than a week. The Coppola brand means a lot, so I knew it was a great chance to enjoy the vibes of this great director translated into food. Malfatti... I have no words to describe Malfatti.
I know I´ll go back to San Francisco, and this will be my first stop. It´s MY place in SF.
Every time I am in San Fran this is a "must go" for me and anyone with me. This time my family got to go and we loved it. Excellent food and great atmosphere. The pizza is top shelf (Sofia) and was loaded. Pasta cooked el Dante and the sauce is fresh and delicious. I could eat here every night.
Excellent pre race dinner with friends! Food and service were excellent and had very friendly servers and neighboring tables full of great advice for our next stop in Wine Country!
Great place for cinema lovers and Coppola fans. Great pizzas and ambiance. I would like to come back when I come back to San Francisco.
Love the short story vending machine!!!!
The restaurant was very crowded and very very noisy. I could barely speak to my date as it was so loud and the tables were so close to each other. This is a very small restaurant. The food was delicious though and we wanted to go there for the architectural and cinematic significance.
Great staff and nice location. Went here for a friend who was visiting and sadly it really is just a tourist destination. I would not jump at the chance to go back.
excellent! A great time! Would go back again and recommend it to all my friends and family!
The food was top notch and prices were pretty reasonable compared to most. Seeing the Coppola memorabilia was interesting too.
