We are centrally located off Hwy. 101 in San Rafael, across for the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Marin Civic Center. La Toscana is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant and bar located in Marin County. It was established in 1985 by Paolo Mori, his wife, Marilyn, and Michele Quilici. The owners all grew up in Lucca, Italy and immigrated to the U.S. in the late 1950s. They wanted to create an atmosphere that reminded them of home – a place where locals would gather to eat, meet friends and family and celebrate with food and wine as every Italian family does. Chef and co— owner Giovanni Racanello joined La Toscana in 1986. Paolo and Marilyn’s daughter, Laura Mori Riella, and youngest son, Michael Mori, joined the La Toscana team in 1992 and 2002, respectively. Paolo loved to make people feel welcome and, just like all the Moris, enjoyed his food and wine and loved to see others do the same. This is the proud tradition that La Toscana carries on.

I had a great meal -- loved the pappardelle with boar. The service was good and we were able to make it to the local speakers series.

We enjoyed New Year’s Eve dinner at La Toscana and it was wonderful. The food was well-prepared and service excellent. Given how busy they were we were impressed the kitchen could keep up. We have been enjoying La Toscana for over 20 years...they are better than ever!

We celebrated an early New Years Eve with another couple here. Made my reservation through Open Table several weeks in advance and when arrived was given an AWSOME table. Corner booth. It was a great location. While the restaurant had alot of people I was not shouting in that corner booth. Very cozy and wonderful ambiance. Food was very good too! We enjoyed it very much and will be back!

We had a great meal. The wait staff was professional with good pacing throughout the meal. The food was terrific and even though the place was full the noise level was reasonable. Don't miss the blueberry tiramisu.

Friendly incredibly accommodating staff. Food was mediocre at best. Carpaccio - drowning in capers on fatty slices of beef. Burrata salad good, with tomatoes that tasted like tomatoes in mid winter (baby tomatoes) but over toasted bread slices were too thick to eat without the whole slice crumbling. Veal scallopini was meh. On the verge of tasteless. All portions were generous, but not great food. Very noisy in the bar, but very friendly customers!
