Fathergod disagreed with the rating and said:
I believe this is a pass. Sandra and Connie, two named female characters, audibly converse about bread. Here's the transcript:

SANDRA (background) want all of that chicken cacciatore for you, sweetheart?

(then, to Connie, who's cutting bread)

Oh, hey, that's enough bread!

CONNIE (background)

But I like bread!


Oh I know, but how much can you eat? (background)

It's corroborated in the script and in the film. You can watch the exchange at 5:00 in the YouTube video "The Godfather Food Scenes."
