We often eat in the private room with a large group. It is behind glass but part of the larger dining room. The food is good. Fish, pasta, salads.

Five of us (three adults, two pasta-loving teens) had a lovely dinner here. Having grown up in Mill Valley and stayed in the adjacent hotels multiple times in the last decade we always found Frantoio uneven and sometimes the service could verge on unpleasant BUT this time the service was lovely, just attentive enough and the food was excellent -...

Frantoio's is a great place to enjoy a fine dinner and drinks. Everything is good including the pizzas. Service is the way it ought to be, attentive but not pushy.

This restaurant was recommended by our house host as it is near to our home away from home. The atmosphere was quite nice. While open concept, it was not noisy. The wine list superb. The service was conflicting. Some employees were running around; there was verbal conflict between a couple of employees; our food took the l.o.n.g.e.s.t. time to come... More

What a surprise! This rather old school restaurant that isn't impressive at all outside REALLY delivered in terms of food and was unexpectedly upscale in decor. Not cutting edge food but excellent dishes such as handmade pasta with pulled rabbit and wild mushroom ragu (would go back just for that dish); perfectly cooked halibut and tender and flavorful lamb chops...

The ambiance is a little lacking but the food is divine and the wine list is exceptional! I've had the rabbit, which is my all time favorite. Everything they serve is done well and very tasty!

You go here for a dependably fresh and well cooked meal, not for originality or food to kill for. Staff is very good and friendly
