The pizzas are divine. My husband favors pasta dishes there…any or all of them! The in-house made olive oil, when available is "to die for!" The bar area has a terrific happy hour with AMPLE seating available. Full bar and very skilled bartenders. It's in our "rotation" to visit at least once a month. If we lived closer, it would...

We ate here 5 yrs ago and thought it was mediocre. Tried it again and loved it! The chef knows what he is doing and the service is excellent. Great cocktail list too. We also noticed it was packed so the word must be getting out

Stopped in this ristorante for dinner as we were staying at a nearby hotel. The front desk staff was rude initially talking among themselves. The waiter did not describe the specials and was huffy when we did not want drinks. We ordered soup and an mushroom ravoli. Food was very good. Waiter never asked us how the food was or... More

We just had this writer's 65th birthday party in the private room at our longtime favorite restaurant in Mill Valley, Frantoio. We've been going there for years for the excellent food and service, perfect martinis, and great waiters, most of whom are now our friends! We also love it especially for the manageable noise level, even when the main room... More

Frantoio makes excellent olive oil, and they have excellent bread and balsamic vinegar to go with it (ask for the vinegar); and it sets the stage for superlative salads and entrees, and finished with several choice desserts. The private banquet room gives one a nice view of the rest of the restaurant and a distant glass-enclosed vista of the olive... More

Big enough to accommodate lots of people. Busy and popular. I've been here about ten times and haven't had anything bad at all. Friendly service too.

We recently held a large rehearsal dinner party at Frantoio for 45 people and it was a wonderful experience. The food was first-rate, the service was friendly and efficient and the party room was warm, inviting and a perfect size for our group. The weather was nice so we were even able to hold our cocktail reception on their private... More

Attended a Private Event. Host rented entire restaurant. Food is excellent. Service is excellent. Out of town guests stay in adjacent hotel and can walk there. Staff set room up to accommodate a band.

We we're busy doing laundry in our apartment rental and didn't have time to go out to a sit down dinner, but were recommended to get food from Frantoio who had carry out.
