Four of us enjoyed an Italian meal, in a nice atmosphere; there is a bar section adjacent that was quite boisterous at times, as they watched a game on TV. We had Osso Buco as the main course, and it was great, around $25. Service was good.

Family owned, family oriented; also a great bar and experience for couples. Can't beat the menu and flavor. Must try - Tortelli alla toscana and any special with pasta and shellfish.

One of the better Italian Restaurants around. Food well prepared, service good. Wine a bit on the pricey side.

this place is an an odd spot, but once you get inside, the place is nice! Great ambiance, and modern decor make this a nice spot to get a drink and a bite. The drinks are generous in size and also in alcohol content, so be aware of that! Fresh and seasonal ingredients, and helpful, friendly staff.

This was our second visit to this excellent restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious. There is not an extensive list of options for vegetarians like us, but the eggplant was superb, and I've never had gnocchi that were as fluffy, light, and flavorful as the ones they served. The portions are more than ample -- we carried out enough... More

This is a gem. When you drive into the area, you expect a little hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant but when you walk inside you find a very elegant setting with excellence food. All the pasta is fresh, the wine list is extensive and the staff very attentive. I really find we will return often.

Hosted a rehearsal inner here and was really happy with the arrangements, price and service and food. Had last minute people show up and it was no problem to accommodate the extra guests. A bit noisy due to highway traffic but overall a nice experience.

The family ownership really has revitalized La Toscana. Great new decor, cuisine updated and the family takes an interest again in making customers feel welcomed and well served. This restaurant has been around for a long time and they have made many improvements to make sure that it remains around for a long time more.

This is one of my favorite places in eat in Marin County. We had a delightful meal there last night. The food (as always) was delectable. I started with their vegetable zupa which was hearty and delicious. I had their lamb chops (which were cooked to perfection) and veggies for my main course. I finished it off with their outstanding... More
