Reviewed January 9, 2012

I’m convinced they buy their takeout dinner at Giri Polli and take it home. We do that often. The restaurant has an array of Italian dishes on the menu and an impressive rotisserie that can roast 40 chickens at a time. The pasta dishes are delicious. While the restaurant atmosphere is cozy and the staff is extremely friendly, the takeout business there is booming. We are a regular customer and will continue to enjoy this local provider of excellent food. Call in or get in line.

“Pretty tasty rotisserie restaurant”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

I don't get very excited about chicken, but I have to admit Gira Polli does a great job. And not just with chicken, they do lamb and a great assortment of side dishes. We've always had take home food, but the small dining room and patio are very pleasant. It's great to have so close to home.

“Excellent Dinner”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

We happened to notice this restaurant after leaving the Marin Theatre, and decided to give it a try. There were four of us, and all enjoyed our dinners very much.
Bread and salads were very good -- always the first thing I look for in a restaruant. They specialize in rotisserie chicken, but it's nothing like what you get at the supermarket -- it's very, very good, and there was a constant stream of people coming and going at the special entrance for chicken dinner carry-outs.. Two of us had the pasta with chicken and mushrooms, and it was one of the best pasta dishes I've every had. One of us had the linguine with clam sauce, and the other had the ravioli, and they were both quite pleased with their meals. The atmosphere is pleasant and inviting, and it's fun to watch their huge rotisseries at work.
