Excellent Italian Food.

Very Hard to find good Italian food anywhere, but I found one in Mill Valley, CA. Had a basic Linguine and Meatballs and it was out of this world. Pleasant and laid back atmosphere, but then again it is in Mill Valley, CA. Make sure you call for a reservation!

This resturant feels very local. We were staying at the mill valley inn and wanted a small Italian restaurant. This fit the bill, I had wonderful carbonara and my sister ravioli. The staff was friendly, the owner very helpful. If I get back this way I will definitely go back. Reservations would be a good idea.

My friend and I were in the mood for some pasta. Nothing fussy just tortellini and a Cesar Salad. Started with a simple and crunchy Cesar salad and a glass of Sobon Zinfandel (one of my favorites). She had the meat filled and I went with the creamy pesto cheese tortellini. The pasta was so delicious and fresh and perfectly... More

We've been hearing about Vasco from friends for some time and finally managed to go for dinner. The feeling of the whole place is very community Italian, like you'd get in a medium-size community in Italy. Menu is largely conventional Italian, but very well done, for example very, very good Carbonara pasta. Service and staff also folksy and friendly. We'll... More

If Mill Vally has an "IN" place then this is it. Lots of locals at the bar. Good Italian food. Go early or make a reservation!

This is a centrally located spot right in the heart of downtown Mill Valley. Its always bustling with a bar scene. The venue is small, with about 24 or so tables. Its not fancy so everyone can feel comfortable. The owner, Paul, knows everybody and is super hospitable. Locals know that its a really good value with entrees in the... More

We stopped at Vasco after reading other people's reviews. It did not disappoint. We had been traveling that day and were concerned about attire but the restaurant had a casual atmosphere and we did not feel out of place. The portions were not huge and the food was delicious. I also have to say all the staff were wonderful. Very... More

I have eaten at this restaurant multiple times and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the prices are always fair. The owner, Paul, is incredibly warm and friendly and obviously dedicated to running an excellent establishment and the wait staff is always great.
