Discover Café Zoetrope in San Francisco

Francis Ford Coppola wrote the screenplay for “The Godfather” in San Francisco’s North Beach. The neighborhood is home to his famed bistro, Café Zoetrope, located in the historic Sentinel Building

Located on the ground floor of the anodized-copper Zoetrope building owned by film director Francis Ford Coopola, this cozy cafe/restaurant is the perfect place to have a nice glass of vino rosso with some pasta while checking out the classic movie posters that cover the walls. Many a famous filmmaker and writer have rented workspaces on the floors above, so you might sit next to one—or even Francis himself—if your timing is right.

Cafe Zoetrope 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.

The Cafe functions as a wine bar and a restaurant in the style of a Roman Trattoria. Enjoy lunch, dinner, wine tastings and our full bar as well as your unique surroundings in a historic building in North Beach.
