Campo Fina

Healdsburg, CA

Demand was so great at chef/ owner Ari Rosen and his wife/ business partner Dawnelise first restaurant Scopa that they concluded a second location around the corner was the logical next step.  Since Scopa was only 10’-8 wide the 11’-8 width in the new space was almost a luxury.  Part of an early 1900 brick commerical building on Healdsburg Ave., one block north of the town Plaza, the space was gutted with additional floor area added to the rear.  A back alley area was developed with an outdoor bar, wood fired pizza oven,  bocce court and dining patio, all shaded by a trellis featuring brick columns, concrete beams and steel arches. This project involved navigating complicated issues with the City’s electric, fire, and public works departments regarding utilities, easements, and life safety issues.
