Visiting from out of town with my spouse and found this gem of a restaurant tucked on a side street with a few other restaurants, away from the more common tourist destinations. The food was authentic Italian cuisine, well prepared and delicious. The portions were large so keep that in mind when ordering. Great outdoor, side walk seating for people watching. The live jazz trio that night was excellent.

Food was good. Pasta perfectly al dente, but no salt in the water so pretty bland. Branzino was good, but relied on lots of butter and garlic. Service was nice, room is simple but cute.

Delicious food as usual. Love the fresh pasta! We came as a book club and it worked fairly well, although the decibel level notched up gradually the longer we sat there. For this purpose, or any situation where you have more than 4 people who would all like to hear each other's comments, an early dinner is best.

We were pleasantly surprised that there was a jazz trio playing in this restaurant when we walked in. The service was very casual and friendly. Meals and wine were very good. And the price is right. I wish I live near and could come to the bar to listen to the jazz while sipping wine and eating small bites on weekday nights.

Was not real familiar with Sausalito but read the reviews and gave it a try. It was a little after the lunch rush but service still very good. Between the two of us, we had the tortellini soup, salad and a panini. All were very good and I would order them again. Kind of has the feeling of a nice European cafe. Nice and relaxing and a good spot to have a conversation. Off the main strip and reasonably easy to find a parking place too.

As always, we enjoy the music! Having a piano player at brunch was really nice. The food was really good for the most part. My only slight disappointment was the polenta with egg and veggies... it could have been a little more interesting, with brighter seasoning and more veggies. Otherwise really good food, loved the ricotta pancakes. Delicious mimosas with fresh orange juice.

This is one of the best Italian Restaurants in Marin! Small, cozy, fun, and the live music adds the perfect environment! You need to get a table in the front room or at the Bar to enjoy the music though.

Though food is good, for some reason the place is not appealing at all. Very few people, just ok service. I think it´s easy to get something similiar in Sausalito with a better vibe.

Found this restaurant on line and wanted to try it.
Reviews were excellent and the food was very good
Good prices too. But I thought the tiny place could use a
little redecorating to make it a more vibrant environment.
Off the beaten path but a good meal.

Food quality was inconsistent which was the reason for the 3 stars. The bread was good, starters of soup and salad good; crab ravioli - pasta great, crab meat itself salty. entrees - one was good but the scallop dish was disappointing. 4 scallops on a bed of greens. scallops pretty standard. the problem was parts of the greens were very salty - as if the chef had taken a pinch of salt and sprinkled directly over the greens, so where the salt landed was the salty mouthful!

lastly, we ordered what we thought were lemon cookies. what arrived was ONE smaller than the size of a quarter cookie. probably because it looked so pathetic on the plate, another one by half inch lemon tasting covered toffee/caramel? (which we didn't like) item was on the plate. it cost $6! overall prices on the high side.

Overpriced. The food is not authentic Italian food. The rice I had was way too spicy and not cooked like a proper arborio rice, it was missing the correct mantecatura. Grains were disconnected. My husband had a pasta dish and he was also very unsatisfied with the cooking of the pasta, it tasted like wine instead of vongole, seems like the wine was not evaporated correctly from the pan.

This restaurant is our Sausalito favorite. Their live music is delightful but don't think you'll be able to have dinner table conversation easily if you're eating in the bar. Food was fresh and well seasoned with CA cuisine take on the Italian fare. In the summer, we love to sit outside and enjoy the ambiance of Caledonia Street.

Came here for a dinner with a friend on a Tuesday night at 6. We had a table in the back room so we could talk. But this is not the place to talk as the music / room acoustics are always loud. Fun spot to listen to live music and have a glass of wine though. Food wise - the meal was average for the price. Burrata was served too cold for my taste and arugula was limp; linguini and clams were average and the shrimp appetizer was drowned in heavy tomato sauce. And the service wasn’t great for such a small space. We asked that each dish be served one at a time. The linguini came way too fast and when we asked our server to hold off, the plate returned cold so we had to send it back. Our wine glasses sat empty for over 10 mins despite twice asking for a refill. Been here twice before and had a better experience so maybe just an off night, but overall I always come away feeling the food could be better given the price, and it’s hard to have a conversation.

I've been to Osteria Divino before and enjoyed music, food, vibe. This time the service was slow and somewhat insolent, they were out of the generic wine we wished to order, and I couldn't hear the person next to me. My pesto gnocci was very good, and I might go back for lunch but definitely not for dinner.

This is worth the walk to one block off of Bridgeway where most of the eateries are touristy. We had the freshest salads, one seafood loaded with shrimp, calamari, mussels and clams, the other with freshly grilled chicken breast. We shared a bowl of minestrone which was fresh and more than enough for two. The most memorable part of the meal was the focaccia brought to the table. Thin and crispy, wonderful! They have an extensive panini menu and I can only imagine how good those are based on the focaccia I tasted. Yum.
