We stopped by Rulli for desert after eating elsewhere. The cups of gelato were excellent and reasonably priced. Their pastry cases were laden with wonderful looking treats, alas we all were already full. The left side of the establishment is more of a sandwich - lunch place, I have made a mental note to return to eat there too. Delicious... More

This place has been around for a long time. Their pastries are nice, but you really need to order the tiramisu, best in Marin. Next time you have a dinner party, special order one for your guest, they will love you for it!

I love to pop into this place for a quick coffee and pastry. They also have sandwiches, I think. You can imagine for the hour or half hour that you're here, that you've just sprung into a charming European cafe. They also have a wide range of cookies and pastries that you can take home.

Wonderful atmosphere! Sitting inside at small cozy tables or outside with beautiful views and downtown Larkspur. Coffee and pots of tea are enjoyable. Great selection of pastries. Gelato and cakes are beautiful as well as delicious. Great place to meet friends and sit and enjoy!

One of my favorite places for a real cup of hot cappuccino, Italian style! The pastries and sandwiches are made fresh daily and it is so hard to pick as I want them all :) .....also try out the cookies and dessert section, as you will walk away with a dozen or so choices as they are all so good!...

Gary Rulli studies in Italy and he not only studied Pasty he must have spent time analyzing Italian Cafe's too. If you have been to Italy you will see dozens of cafes just like Rulli all over Italy. Wonderful panini sandwiches, excellent Italian coffee and OMG the pastry at Rulli is to die for. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

Truly, the most eloquent European Coffee house this side of the Mississippi. Aside from the name, you may walk in, and you feel as though you are in a cafe in Vienna, France or Italy. Authentic. Try the coconut macaroons with gelato and coffee. This is heaven.
