At last we have found it! The best Italian restaurant in Marin. The food was superb as was the house wine! Service was spectacular - friendly and helpful but professional. They make their own bread(!!) and pasta. The place was packed, as one would expect...More

May be the best restaurant in Larkspur....certainly better than Pico, Left Bank, and Perry's, although each is good in their own right. For terrific pasta you cannot beat Gia. Just opened a few months ago, it has a winning formula. Casual but upscale; excellent service...More
