Fradelizio's has the best (Northern) Italian food in the Ross Valley and one of top 5 in Marin. But what makes it stand out is its atmosphere - small and cozy - and the friendliness of the owner and staff. Reservations should be made - if you are a couple, ask for a table by the window if available. Barrel... More

Over the years I've learned to avoid most Italian restaurants. London has some shockers, Sydney some stinkers and San Francisco didn't impress either. So when my friends suggested I take them to Fradelizio's for my "treat" to them for their kind hospitality to Zofia and me I groaned inwardly and went with the flow. Luckily we booked ahead and were... More

This place never disappoints! I always get the chicken or salmon picatta. The pasta is good too, and the bread comes out warm and delicious! The windows open up so there is no wall between you and the outside which is amazing for breezes on those nice autumn days! The staff is also very pleasant and kind.

Been a long time fan of this restaurant but recently they changed their menu items and remove the marinated calamari and Caesar salad option which I have to say was one of the best meals The waitstaff wasn't able to get much of an explanation why it was removed This also an Italian restaurant that doesn't have pizza even so...

Been coming here for over a decade. All aspects get an A if not an A+ . . . the food is always fresh and top notch; wait staff efficient and friendly; decaf good; music/ambiance. Well, a couple of minuses (1) they sell VEAL and we all know how awful these young calfs are raised (miserable, anemic life); and (2)... More

Not a great restaurant but very good! Fairfax is a small town with an eclectic population. Whether you live there or just visiting Fradelizio's is worth checking out. The waiters are friendly and helpful, the portions are large, and the prices are fair.

Small, fun restaurant- makes you feel a little like part of the extended family. Good food --boar ravioli and calamari were really good, so was the house wine. A bit noisy and a little hectic on a Saturday night with people constantly entering & waiting for a seat. A cold breeze from the front door-- next time I will try... More

I've been going to this restaurant for many years...prices are reasonable and there's loads of variety on the menu (the gorgonzola pork chop and the wild boar ravioli are definite standouts), and everything is delicious. Service is good, staff is friendly, and the organic barrel select wine (by the carafe) is a delicious blend hand-selected by the owner. Great spot... More
