Please to go

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.

For some reason we have always walked past this restaurant but never stopped in. Well last weekend we were doing an errand in MV and wanted to grab a bite to eat and gave Vasco a chance. What a pleasant surprise! A charming room. A mellow bar scene where I spotted an old friend. Nice tables not too close together.... More

Friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed our dinner and dessert. The linguine and meatballs was delicious! The chicken Marsala disappeared from my husband's plate. WE looked forward to returning here when we visit again.

Other people have described the setting, so I won't bother. What impressed me: Their closing time was 10:00 pm (which is very late for Marin County), but we called at 9:30 pm and were assured that we could order until 10. We got there at 9:45, ordered a glass of wine and filet of sole, and they presented it just... More
