The owner of Valenti, a native Italian, still cooks in the kitchen every night. I've never had a bite of food at this neighborhood favorite that wasn't delicious. The staff remember your name and are generous with a terrific wine list. The place feels both...More

I'd say it was the people who own and operate Valenti that makes it special, but that would cause you to think that the food was not outstanding. I'd mention the pleasant, but unassuming interior, but you'd think the place was unexceptional. It is the...More

One of most popular in Anselmo area. All our dishes were great (starters & desserts); minor blemish, my duck breast which was pre-roasted was bit dry. Most friendly & attentive service. Worth repeating👌

We have two very good Italian restaurants in San Anselmo, This restaurant and Cuccina SA, both with very different feeling. Valenti tends to use more seasonal and local ingredients and perhaps has slightly more complex dishes. That may be reflected in the slightly higher prices...More

Farm-fresh authentic Northern Italian restaurant from chef Duilio Valenti and his family. Freshness is what it's all about here and chef Valenti makes extensive use of local and Italian products, and even grows several of his own herbs, vegetables and fruits. "I cook and eat here every day" says Chef Valenti, "so I only want the best and most wholesome". The wine list is crafted around the cuisine and features small production Northern Italian and California wines some of which you'll be thrilled to discover. On any given day at least 20 wines are offered by the glass and on-tap from $6 and up.
