A great place whether for one or many

My husband and I attended an 80+ birthday dinner for a church/family friend and neighbor. There were 15-20 of us and we were given a private room in the back near the kitchen. It seemed as if the server(s) were assigned just to us and they took care of everyone and everything. The menu was... read more

Great, attentive service, cozy dining area and great food. The usual calamari, scampi, carpaccio and bruschetta all done to perfection. Many more innovative dishes delight the palate. Home made pastas and gnocchi of course, gluten free available. Outdoor tables add a European flare. Great for 3 generation family dinners, romantic meals or lunch date.

Not a bad item on the menu. The waiters' recommendations are always spot on. I feel like I'm in a big city restaurant. Cesar, our server, made our night special. The Veal Picatta is wonderful. The seafood fettuccini was, too, although I would have liked it better with spaghetini. Mushroom ravioli appetizer is superb, save some bread for the sauce!... More

Lunched with a group and everyone raved about their meal... "the best prawns I've ever eaten"... "fantastic salmon and amazing polenta cake".... "superb short ribs atop a bed of delicious polenta". The menu is filled with local meats, hormone & antibiotic free, and local fish and seafood, local veggies. If you're looking for an outstanding place in Marin to eat,... More

The soft lighting and excellent wait staff make this special for couples. The staff is ever present. The menu is extensive and varied. What ever you order you cannot go wrong.They do not bat an eyelash at the sharing of salads and entree, which is so lovely when you want room for their fabulous desserts. Only down side is how...
