A word from Piazza D'Angelo
Piazza D'Angelo is a family run business with a long history. In 1980, two brothers from southern Italy moved to Marin with dreams of opening an authentic Italian restaurant. The dream came true a year later when co-owners Domenico and Paolo Petrone opened the now upscale trattoria Piazza D’Angelo. Over the years, Piazza D'Angelo, has become the most popular restaurant in downtown Mill Valley. They are known for wonderful Italian cuisine in a warm and friendly setting.

  • Worst pizza ever
    Foodnik
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    We've been to this restaurant several times in the past and it was always good, not great. We usually sat on the patio because you can carry on a conversation without shouting. We made reservations this night and were seated inside right in the path of the servers, the patio was closed, first bad sign. The waiter couldn't of been colder if we'd challenged him to a ice bucket challenge. He took our drink reservations and then disappeared for some time. I hate that when they only ask for the drink order and not your food order. We ordered the pizza with spinach and mushrooms. The worst pizza ever! mushy, flavorless, just bad. We left with a bad taste in our mouths. Pun intended.

    I'm a repeat visitor who has always been happy in the past. On this occasion, a business lunch meeting, I shared a spatzle dish and a seafood salad with my colleague and we both were disappointed at how bland the two dishes were. The spatzle was undersalted and tasted watered down. The seafood salad badly needed some fresh herbs.

    This restaurant serves very authentic Italian cuisine at it's best. The Italian wine list is exceptional, the Special Wine from San Gimignano was excellent. The portions, except for the shared Caesar salads, were plentiful. The pastas were authentic, and delicious, as were the pizzas, especially if you like a thin crust! The Italian burger ordered by my Italian mother but what made it Italian? The tiramisu and the chocolate cake, both excellent. The server Erika was EXCELLENT, kept her cool and served us well. We were seated close to the kitchen, a busy area and a bit on the hot side. The noise level was way too high for our group. I would definitely request a different area in the restaurant. A great time was had by all.

    The service was slow and the waiter was inexperienced and not had any training. The fish was still frozen in the middle and tasteless. We sent it back twice. All four different entrees deducted from bill. It was one of the worst dining experiences we have had for a long time. We will not be dining there again. If I was a restaurant critic I would advise that the menu be changed and quality of food preparation be reviewed or change the chef.

    We have eaten at D'Angelo many times and usually it is fine. But today's brunch for four of us can best be described as inconsistent. The steak and eggs were very good, as was their version of french toast, but the side of bacon was way over cooked (crisp would be an understatement) and the frittata was meagre....is this all there is? Thin and no enough sausage to give it any flavor. And the only way I could get a coffee refill was to flag down a waiter or busboy, not once did they notice an empty cup and ask. Overall I was quite disappointed.

    Excellent food and service and 3 waiters sang my husband "Happy Birthday" at the end of the meal. Piazza D'Angelo even provided his birthday cake (tiramisu) gratis! Because of the singing other long ago acquaintances from across the aisle joined us! When I asked for a quiet area, we were shown a great patio area with heaters, so we weren't cold. The the Heirloom salad was fabulous as well as the chicken and beef, and the portions were very generous. All these factors made the evening a night to remember. We'll return!

    I have been to Piazza D'Angelo before. I brought friends from out of town this time. We all enjoyed the food. Our waiter was very nonchalant about serving our table. My friend's husband had to ask the hostess to ask our waiter to come to the table so he could order a drink. I had to remind the waiter twice to bring my second glass of wine. The waiter wasn't friendly, did not engage us at all. I love the food here but I'm really concerned about the level of service - at least from this particular waiter.

    Piazza D'angelo was a favorite of mine. Unfortunately, the food quality has declined. I think the owner or chef needs to eat what they serve to their customers. It'll be an aha! moment. The chicken was dry and tasteless. Hard to believe that no one in the kitchen noticed. The Calamari was soggy and cold, the result of frying it in old and low temperature oil. The accompanying aioli tasted like wallpaper paste. Enough said! Hope you can fix the lack of food quality!

    We've been here a lot, and they keep us coming back with consistently good food and friendly service. They have a nice bar scene and a wonderful view of the Richardson Bay. We usually end up ordering several items from the special menu, which have creative appetizers and always a nice risotto to keep things different. Good place, good food, reasonably priced options -- what more could you want?

    I've been to this restaurant several times and generally had a good experience. However, we had the sourest, grouchiest, most unfriendly and unhelpful waiter ever on my last visit there.

    Food was bland to our tastes. Service was slow and we felt neglected as we were eating lightly and did not order appetizers and full dinner and no wine, so the waiter was inattentive. Although it is a popular restaurant among locals, it is not a favorite for us. We had reservations a few months ago for a weekend night and it was so noisy, we left, as did some other diners. This dinner was on a week night and we sat on the patio, it was quite pleasant with the overhead heaters.

    Piazza D'Angelo is good for families with children (especially early evening) , friend and/or business groups and even a few singles(bar dining)! An attractive large restaurant broken up into a variety of spaces: the host can help you find the best place for your needs. A seasonal distinctly modern italian menu, fresh quality ingredients, nice presentation and some food adaptable for kids. Limited but good gluten free/vegetarian options. Monday night 1/2 price on bottles of their already well priced,excellent wine list; nice salads, inventive risottos and a changing menu. Service usually smooth, adaptable to your timing.

    We have been here many times, as a pre-theater dinner spot. In the past we have ordered Italian-centric dishes. This time, we ordered a $30 beef dish to split between us. Presentation was sparse and frankly not very tasty. For the price, the cut of beef was not very tender, and the steak knives were not sufficiently sharp for easy cutting. Next time, we'll order the known-to-be-delicious Margherita pizza or lasagna or another specialty. It was noisy primarily because the World Cup match was being shown on television. We have been there when it was much less raucous.

We asked to go into the side room away from the World Cup. This was done pleasantly but then our waiter seemed to forget about us. Other than that, we had a pleasant meal and will give it another chance the next time we are in the area.

    We had a delicious dinner with very good service before heading to the Throckmorton Theater for a performance. We sat in the patio which was nice and quieter than the inside restaurant. We loved the bread and olive oil garlic dip as a starter then had salads, pasta dishes and tiramisu for dessert. It was all delicious. The only thing I would change is to put less dressing on the salad since the bottom part was a bit soggy. I had the pasta dish with lamb and my date had the pasta with mushrooms. Both excellent as was the tiramisu! And our waiter was very attentive as well.

    Piazza D'Angelo has been there forever. The experience of dining here can vary based on both the food and the service. Our server this time lacked any personality at all, not bothering to make any real human contact. When the meal comes out to between $60 - $80 per person that is a glaring hole.
