About Peddoti's

The History of Pedotti’s

Restaurant 0483

Mark Pedotti, along with his half-brothers Anton & Nove Ciapusci, immigrated to the United States in the 1870’s. Settling in Mendocino County California, they established a vineyard, bonded winery, tanbark, & railroad ties operation, raised cattle & operated a hotel, bar & restaurant. In the mid 1920’s, Mark Pedotti sold his interest in the winery & hotel to his brothers.

Cooks 0403Alex Pedotti, who was born in 1903 was the patriarch of the Pedotti family, was the oldest son of Mark & Mathilda Pedotti. As a young man, Alex worked to establish & maintain the family vineyard. Alex, who passed away February 2002, was often seen sitting at his table, at Pedotti’s in Sutherlin. We are proud to share with our patrons some of our family history by serving the fruit of the vine, Edmeads Zinfandel, from 100 year old vines from the Ciapusci Vineyards.

An Italian restaurant was established at the Sutherlin site in 1991 by Bob & Dory Schirmer. In February of 1997, Alex’s son Dave, while looking for donations, Dave asked her if she would be interested in selling the restaurant… the rest is history!

Ahh, you ask what is the Purple Foot Gang? Back on the ranch, 1977, the Pedottis’s with a group of friends, came up with the idea to make wine. We called ourselves the “Purple Foot Gang,” for the old way of crushing grapes… thus our logo & the “Purple” socks worn by our staff. Because of the good friends, good food, & good times experienced, as is the Italian custom, we are dedicated to bringing you together with friends so that you too may experience fun times, friendly atmosphere & good food!
