That's high praise, indeed. My husband loves gnocchi, which means we have had gnocchi many times, in many countries. The gnocchi at Valenti is very light, although the sauce has goat cheese and cream. The balsamic reduction adds acidity and sweetness. I highly recommended it!...More

Thanks for the review! The restaurant can be a little hard to find. For those looking for the restaurant, it is located right underneath the sign that says San Anselmo Inn. We appreciate you coming in and leaving a review! Thanks again!
