Party of four, we were seated right away, rather quiet table in the back room. Wait person, very cordial, smiling, bubbly, attentive. She did not rush us, took her time taking drink orders and small bite orders. To start we had avocado bruschetta, covered with avocado and delicious, mesquite grilled octopus, wonderful, risotto and little gem salad, terrific. As our mains, juniper scented rigatoni, grilled sea bass, rossotti ranch veal agnolotti and the special of the night fried chicken. Each dish had excellent flavors, good size portions and all very good. Cheesecake and a chocolate dessert, wine and prossecco. Al of us were pleased with the service, food, ambiance and the whole evening. This place has all the right stuff.

Coming to this place for years
Last night I noticed $30 corkage fee added to the bill. So odd. we ordered 3 glasses of wine did not bring our own wine
This charge was removed after questioning it but we will check our bill very closely in future

I enjoyed this lovely gem of a restaurant with a friend and shared small plates: amazing Pacific oysters on the half shell that were fresh and unique, a crudo that was a delight, and one of the best and most unusual gnocchi's I have enjoyed EVER. Finished with sorbets and my palate truly thought I was in Tuscany. Service was friendly and prompt (though we went before the evening rush ... which might be a hint to truly enjoying the delights of what is obviously a very popular and busy restaurant). Buon appetito!

So, we have fallen into a rut! What a SUPER rut it is!! Bar seating, avocado toast and ahi tuna on rice cakes...drop the mic! Check out Marin Mondays - if you are a local - you'll find drink, appetizer, main dish and dessert specials JUST FOR YOU!

A really bad place from start to finish. Hasn't been updated or improved in years. Rude and arrogant hosts. So so service. Tight space, loud and food is mediocre. For the price, it has gone way downhill from where it used to be. If this is what's Best in Marin, I'd recommend you go into the city or to Buckeye where they know how to do it without the attitude.
