It's my favorite restaurant in Marin....always delectable and lovely atmosphere. Right now, with the balmy summer weather, nabbing a table for two outside is the way to go. Or, get there before 5:30 to grab the two end seats in the bar, to have the best vantage point for people watching. We always start with the tuna tartare and the... More

Lacking reservations, we had a long wait for a table (fortunately, on a pleasant night), as this is a very popular place. However, the staff was pleasant, knowledgeable and professional, so service even before the meal helped with the wait. We sat outside, so the scene was OK, being next to a moderately used road. It seemed to be a... More

Love the food, love the service, love the vibe. Can be really loud in the restaurant, but if you get there early (or just have good luck) you can snag a seat at the bar... highly recommended. Luke, the main bartender, is a rockstar and will make you feel like an old friend, right away. Don't miss the tuna tartare,... More

They had a busy night ahead, but were able to seat us at 5, which turned out to be perfect. Our server was excellent and knowledgeable. We picked the wine, but he was able to perfectly describe what we could expect. Our friends from Austin loved everything. We enjoyed the risotto (of course),ricotta stuffed squash blossoms, burger sliders, fries and... More

We had a very nice meal here, it's a bit expensive, but the food is very nicely done, so perhaps worth it. The "sharing" concept was not understood (we were thinking tapas, or small plates) - it's actually that the plates are quite large, and therefore share-able. We only over-ordered a little. Do not miss the gnocchi! A heavenly caprese... More

We had dinner at Restaurant Picco for my girlfriends birthday while in town from Texas and could not have been more impressed. The food and service were both amazing. We had the avocado bruschetta (pure, simple and delicious), the crispy ricotta stuffed squash blooms (a very tasty treat and a great twist and squash), the fresh vegetable risotto (freshly made...

Picco's has the best pizza in the Larkspur/Carte Madera area. Wood fired. Excellent appetizers and soft serve ice cream for desert. Smaller sitting area so plan for a wait during peak hours. Valet parking available.

Picco is a local treat for us. Always delicious and varied menu based in seasonal organic ingredients. Amazing risottos. Addictive burger sliders. Save room for the milkshake dessert. They emphasize small plate sharing so it' s fun to go there with 4 so you can enjoy tasting more dishes. Would recommend advance planning by making reservations as Picco is very... More

great pizza just on the roadside in the middle of Larkspur. Great tables outside. Nice salad and mixed meat starters! Thoroughly recommended!

Seated promptly without a reservation. Had some difficulty making a menu selection, and needed waitress help in identifying some of the unknown items. Then ordered drinks and entrees. Waited a while for drinks, bread, etc. Waitress then brought wife's wine, not my beer. No bread. Watched bartender washing glasses, but no beer on the service counter. Wanting to toast, finally...
