This is where you come if you only have tolerance for Great Italian food! Focaccia & their own EVOO for dipping so delicious. Specials are always worthy choice if you can't decide. Risotto is always excellent. They are always changing the menu with the Season as it should be. Fresh and perfectly al dente! High end indeed! But when you can't go to Italy...or just miss it...come here.

The food and service at Frantoio is always excellent. They have a goodly number of menu options that are sure to please even the most finicky eater. They make their own top quality olive oil, and their house baked focaccia almost like the real thing in Italy. Their wait staff is attentive, friendly and eager to please. I highly recommend Frantoio. You won't be disappointed.

My girlfriend and I went to the restaurant on December; it was the best restaurant we visit over our vacation to San Francisco.
My girlfriend had the scallops and I had a wood oven baked pizza with black truffle oil. The food was great, the service was very friendly and the restaurant has good prices.
Don’t miss the opportunity to eat here.

Located just off of the 101 North exit to Mill Valley and next to a Holiday Inn Express is Frantoio. What a break for Holiday Inn patrons -- they can just walk to the restaurant and enjoy fine Italian food. The restaurant is quite elegant, serene and although nearly full it was fairly quiet. Terrific use of the space. The food is delicious. One member of our party had the tasting menu which was priced at $39.00 . The other three of us order a la carte and enjoyed squid ink raviolis filled with scallops, spinach salad, arugula salad, porcini mushroom raviolis and for dessert panna cotta with strawberries and a bit of chocolate sauce. The service is excellent.

All I can say is order the gnocchi, I still crave this all the time. Service is great and if you don't want to sit down for dinner, they have a great bar with the games on. I believe you can purchase their olive oil and balsamic that they manufacture on site as well. Also, the prix fixe menu is a good choice if you are not too hungry for a full entree.
