Is it the World's Best Bistro, Brasserie or Pizzeria? Or all three?

Marin foodies have life on a silver platter when they come to Picco.......another example why the Bay Area is such a destination......why the Bay Area is such a high level of living! Start with the Crudo even if you are a red meat snob as this dish just gives life meaning. The soup is always... read more

We love the Pizza and Caesar Salad and drive 40 minutes to get there. There's usually a wait but everything is very casual so buy a glass of wine and wait your turn. Well worth the drive and wait.

You have to like to share to enjoy this restaurant. Small plates that give you lots of tastes. Try the avocado bruschetta and be sure to try the gnochi. Its the only place I have ever liked gnochi because it is seared. Delicious cocktails too.

My title does indeed say 90% of what I want to say...and over 90% of Picco's reviewers do think similarly. This "locals" spot is a real find. The staff is most welcoming. The menu is creative - the flavors fresh and well balanced. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. I love the risotto on the 1/2 hour. I will... More

Visited this restaurant whilst staying with our son. Staff so helpful and friendly. Food was really excellent. I would highly recommend the risotto - cooked to perfection. Wine was also very good and served well.

We came to have cocktails and sat at the bar; very convivial and neighborly but classy and comfy. The bartender super guys were making cocktails like chemists dropping elixirs or flavors from a shelf of tiny bottles, true alchemists as we began to float in a plethora of tastes and chatter. We add a divine tuna tartare appetizers on rice... More

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant! The risotto, made fresh every half hour, is to DIE for as well as the specialty cocktails. I will never get tired of eating here...The Hen of the Woods mushrooms & Sliders are on the top of my favorites list but the seasonal menu items that are added make it hard to pick a favorite...

Always crowded and tough to get a reservation, but well worth the wait. The food is innovative and delicious, and although they are "small plates" you fill up quickly. They make fresh risotto every 30 minutes and it is perfection. I especially enjoy the "almond wood smoked mcfarland springs trout, crispy potato cake, crushed avocado".
