Long ago it outgrew its local tavern roots. Today Vasco is reliable for a date, a family gathering or just hanging out. The pizzas are worth it and the service sturdy and steady.

We were encouraged by the noisy crowd and obvious popularity of the place but found the food to be very mediocre, and the service no better. When you have to ask for more water, more bread, etc., that's not good service. My calamari was lost in a bizarre mixture of just about every imaginable vegetable. The Caesar salad at eight... More

This is our favorite Mill Valley trattoria. In 10 years we've never had a meal go wrong. Terrific drinks. Can be noisy during peak hours. Excellent thin crust pizza. The whole menu is approachable and reasonably priced.

We visited Vasco last week during our visit to Mill Valley. It definitely lived up to its reviews. The service was fantastic and so was the food. It was also packed with locals so you know it had to be good.

We tried Vasco’s on a Tuesday evening. We arrived on time for a 6:15 reservation for four. It wasn’t too busy yet as we were seated right away. Our table already had bread, and water was served promptly. The menu was full of choices and we each chose something different. Being two couples, we both decided to split a salad.... More

Had a mediocre meal at this establishment during our recent trip to Marin County. Service and food were sub par. Atmosphere was fine. Better choices for Italian down the street.

Got a tip at the Mill Valley Inn that this is where the locals like to go for a little pasta and a little (or a lot!) of red! Great tip! Place was packed...we had no reservation on a Thursday night but they told us about 30 minutes. So we sat at the bar had a cocktail and in less... More

Great service, good food, casual local vibe. My pasta dish was fresh and delicious. My friends Chicken Marsala was good, not great. Salad was tasty. Wine was great.

From the moment we walked in the door of Vasco for the first time, we were treated like family: They saw that we had a two year old in tow and immediately called for a high chair before we had to ask. At 7 PM the place was bustling with happy people sharing conversation and waiters dashing in and out... More

Delicious food and salads! Had a wonderful bottle of Banfi Chianti from an extensive list of wines. the food prices were very reasonable. The bar seemed to be a great spot for the locals. Service was excellent and sharing was made simple, chef split the salads in the kitchen.
