Cafe Zoetrope Restaurant Review

: Francis Ford Coppola is seen so often sipping wine at a sidewalk table in the café of the historic Sentinel building that it has been referred to as his personal café. And it actually is, since he owns it and the American Zoetrope production company housed upstairs. An assemblage of pastas, pizzas, sandwiches and small plates conspire to be vaguely rustic, vaguely Italian. The small-plates menu requires guests to punch holes in a menu card denoting which items --- such as prosciutto, cheese or olives --- they would like. Spaghetti with meatballs (Francis' own recipe) is more American-Italian while crisp-crusted, no-sauce pizza Sofia boasts a sophisticated mix of arugula, prosciutto and Parmesan. A heated terrazzo sidewalk and a bright red heated canopy make the outdoor seating fun for people-watchers. The extensive wine list offers selections by the glass, flights of wine and bottles.
