This is truly the pinnacle of smart but casual Italian fare. This bustling trattoria had lines of hopeful eaters hoping to snag a table without a reservation. NOT! The atmosphere was vibrant, and the food matched it all.

We ate ahi crostata and bursts with heirloom tomatoes. Yum! The gnocchi in a brown butter sauce were fantastic plus the Trompetto with duck was excellent. The Pot de creme (not Italian but who cares) was also to die for.

Don’t miss this hot spot, but reservations are almost always needed!

If you're looking for all the bells and whistles that come with a memorable meal - great food and wine selections, relaxed ambiance, attentive and smart servers, parking options and a nice walk on a pretty and historic strip of one of Marin's most sought-after areas, then book well ahead of your preferred date and time. This is our go-to place for special occasions because it never fails to deliver. Food may be a little pricey but as the menu suggests, the food is meant to share.

The vibe is great. Lively and festive without being obnoxiously loud. They were great about honoring my request for a special table. Our server was amazing. Even when we sent something back she was polite and unfazed. She happily and graciously took care of our every request. Food wise, our citrus fig salad, squid dish, duck breast dish and Gnocci were delicious. The Risotto came out very much too al dente and so were the butter beans in our pesto pasta dish. Both of these dishes came close but the flavors never came together for us. I would like for them to offer at least one of their Pizza's on the dinner menu as their Pizza's are amazing. Overall, Picco does not disappoint and we will go back.

My husband and I went here for dinner. It was a great night and we sat outside out front. Would definitely recommend sitting outside. Each night they make a special risotto. My husband got that and said it was delicious. I got the Radiatore with pork ragu. It was so good but filling. We also got the grilled octopus as an appetizer. Very good. If you can eat dessert order the crostata. Delicious!!! Next to the restaurant there is a picco's pizza place. Saw lots of take out pizza. You could valet or park on the street.

Wow! What a delicious meal, and excellent service.

We shared the gnocchi with sausage and spinach all mixed in, and it was
perhaps the best pasta dish of my life. Truly interesting, tasty, generous portion size, and so wonderful.

The main course was a perfectly prepared duck confit leg and thigh, paired with a delicious pork belly, and spinach included on the plate. So good!

We also got sides of brussel sprouts, and cauliflower gratin topped with endive. These two were both so good!

It was a wonderful meal in every way. Cannot wait to go back!
