I ate here with some family members just a couple nights ago and enjoyed it very much. There was a short wait before we were sat on the front patio. We all decided to split about 8 plates of apps and sides and salads between three of us. It was a great idea and the perfect amount of food. I... More

Unusual food with lots of dishes worth sharing. Outstanding risotto, sliders and a nice aubergine dish. Noisy front room with lively bar area but nice and quiet in the back. Blessedly free of music. Service very professional yet friendly. Overall still a winning formula. However, the wine list seems really overpriced.

ok, the reception is not very good and the place is too noisy but the food is delicious. We had avocado bruschetta, tuna, oysters, mini burgers and olive ice cream. Everything was very good. Except the french fries which were disgusting. ( overcook) On Mondays, the corkage is free. I will come back soon.

Excellent on the menu were the gnocchi, pasta dish, and the eggplant. What was poor was the lamb. The lamb was the most expensive item on the menu and consisted of two little lamb chops and a patty. The lamb chops were at best tasteless and you were grateful to have the patty. For locals this is a quick place... More

I've been here several times with friends and family. Run, do not walk to get here! Plates are intentionally small so you sample several bites of many things. Not to be missed: avocado bruschetta (I've never seen anything like this elsewhere and make sure to sprinkle on the chorizo); the tuna tartar is served atop these miniature friend rice cakes...

The food is great but the volume of voices is off the charts. I only takes one person at a table, who has no volume control, to make sure everyone else has to increase their normal volume. I live within walking distance but avoid this place until 9:00 to 9:30 PM. The tables are also to close for comfort.

Always enjoy Pico. The service is great and the food is always delicious. Reservations are a must because it is a hot spot in Marin.

Took my family to Picco last Friday night and had a wonderful dinner. The place was jumping at 6:30 and really hopping when we left. The food is meant to be shared, but they will add a piece if the plate has four servings and you are five. Everything was excellent. Sharing allowed all of us to have different tasting... More

The food, service, check, all very good. The food was excellent. We were in 5, so every plate we ordered, we shared. Very good food and service.

Small, high quality restaurant, with tiny sister pizzeria next-door. (Wonderful too!) We loved everything we tasted. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly as well as efficient. A highlight for us was the risotto, cooked freshly every thirty minutes. Picco's was one of the two top places we dined at during our three weeks in San Francisco.
