Good service, food, perfect location.Standard Italian dishes. Mixed crowd, many locals which is always a good sign. I had the best Amarone here ever.

Great place for pasta and a glass of wine. Quaint locals place. Nice location in heart of village. The owner/manager was greeting people as they arrived and seemed to know many of them. Service was fast and efficient.

This was located close by our rental and was delicious. Walkable distance, short week day wait and tasty wine selection. Order the daily special.

Everything fine, cozy atmosphere, friendly servers. But there's just something missing in the food at these prices (mid-high range). Cesar salad uninteresting - no zing. Seafood risotto lacks spark, mushy shrimp. Pizza from wood-burning oven sounds great, but bland flavors. Diced peppers strewn all over many plates - enough already!

Had dinner here with my wife and the craving for authentic Italian food was very well treated. The prawn appetizer was rich, fresh & succulent. Mains were awesome too, lasagne with an amazing sauce was very rich & heavy but perfect. Linguine and meatballs was delicious too, we shared them both and if I went again I'd likely order an...

We should have known it would be hard to find a table anywhere in Marin County on a Saturday night in summer without reservations. After strolling around the cute little town of Mill Valley, where we were staying in an Airbnb apartment, we took our chances in this packed and popular Italian eatery, finding an unoccupied stool at the bar...

Mill Valley is an expensive town, but amazingly Vasco is not an expensive restaurant. located right on the main square, Vasco serves a nice variety of dishes and all are reasonably priced. The service is very attentive and well done. The fish stew, similar to cioppino, was half the price of restaurants in San Francisco. While it's a long way... More

Reasonably priced good italian food. Always friendly. Not a huge restaurant and can get a bit noisy. However, the food is always good, as is the service.

Loved this little local place right in the heart of the Mill Valley town square. So many great choices on the menu it was hard to decide. The chicken parm was one of the best I've ever had, and if you want authentic real Italian food in a fun, friendly, intimate setting this restaurant cannot be beat. Reasonable prices too.... More
