“So So Italian”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Way too high a price for standard fare. Brioche half size at a large price. A modest sandwich nothing to write home about. Staff is competent but for what one pays this is not good value. Nice decor tables too tightly spaced.

“Great coffee and desserts”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Great cappucinos and paninis... Beautiful murals on the walls. Kids love the gelatos. Torta della nona and panini favorito are awesome... Friendly staff....

“France in NorCal”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

This is an authentic French patisserie (despite the Italianate name), with quality rivaling the best in Paris. Coffee is far better than Peets, if not as convenient. It's the real deal. However, I have not tried anything out of the pastry/baked goods line.

“Lovely sweets and hang out spot”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

If you happen to wander through a lovely Marin town called Larkspur, take a few moments to sit back and enjoy an espresso and a sweet treat at Emporio Rulli. I arrived at around 9 a.m. There is a great group of locals, who frequent this downtown hot spot. You enter from one door and you're greeted with the coffee bar, encased with a few pastries. I enjoyed the ventaglio - yummy. In an adjacent sitting area, more cases of pastries and a seating area.
A feast for the eyes and the tummy...
