Stopped for lunch here, the food was truly excellent as well as the wine! Service was extremely friendly and considering it's popularity wasn't over priced.

Coooool! I love the movie and this was the spot. The gelato was awesome but walking through the restaurant with its aging walls covered with Godfather action shots was really cool.

Just stopped here for a brief snack of biscotti, espresso and lemon granita while doing a tour of the ‘Godfather’ villages. We relaxed in a charming outdoor patio space covered with walls and a ceiling of flowering vines. The mood was amiable & the restaurant...More

Our Globus tour bus traversed miles of switchback roads to reach this isolated hill town. But it was worth it! (How Coppola every found this town to shoot the Godfather 2 wedding scene is beyond me!) Once at the top we disembarked and enjoyed some...More
