Passed by this hidden gem and glad we stopped. Don't let the name Pizzaria fool you. We ordered the ravioli's and eggplant Parmesan. For dessert enjoyed the cannoli. Whaaaawhoooooo! Best place around the area, and can't beat the prices. WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

My hands-down favorite pizza anywhere (not comparing Chicago deep-dish). Ex-NY pizza snob, so my recommendation is good. Tasty sauce, thin crust. Can be a little heavy on oil, but just dab that up if you don't like it. Regular chef is off Tues/Wed, I think. That can make a difference. Kids like the giant meatballs and the chicken piccata. I...

A great choice for dinner between Napa and San Francisco. I picked this stop since many years ago I had dinner at their restaurant on Geary in San Francisco. Our grandchildren had the half potion of Tortellini which is a good choice for young children. My wife enjoyed the Cannelloni and the Risotto Piscatory worked out great for me. It... More

I think this is a local chain in Marin area. Our pickyish 11 year old granddaughter loved her vegetarian Pesto pizza. Hubby happy with chicken Parmesan. I appreciated gluten-free pasta that I ordered with cheese only, no tomato sauce due to a garlic/onion intolerance. Phone order and delivery staff were wonderfully patient and most pleasant. Accurate and very fast service... More

Visited twice is a two week period whilst on holiday. Staff were pleasant- not overly friendly. Food was so yummy, not too heavy but filling. Reasonably priced and favoured by locals- which is always a good sign.

What a find this place is, in looking for a place to "hide out" while teh traffic on 101 south subsided a bit, we found this on google search. The atmosphere was genuine, the service outstanding, attentive, but in no way overbearing. The food was delicious, of special note was the butterfly'd chicken Parmesan. There was great care here.

We're out running errands near Northgate Mall and decide to try out Gaspare's. It's about 6 pm and we enter the restaurant only to be told "sit anywhere on this side". No good evening, no hello, no welcome. We seat ourselves and the server comes by a few minutes later to take our drink order, then ends up bringing us... More

Gaspare's Pizza House & Italian Restaurant in San Francisco first opened in 1985. Our second location Gaspare's Pizzeria Ristorante Bar in San Rafael opened in 2007. It is owned and operated by Daniel, Gaspare and Robin. It’s the best pizza in the Bay Area! We serve home style Italian cooking in a romantic setting at very reasonable price! Besides the best pizza, we are serving a variety of pasta dishes, veal, chicken, seafood, vegetarian dishes, gluten free choices and more. Last but not least, we are proud to serve the best homemade cheesecake this side of New York. The entire menu can be prepared to go for pick-up or delivery!
