    We enjoyed the most delicious meal. Authentic Italian cooking with wonderful attention to detail. I started with a salad of pear and radicchio. It’s not pear season so I expected an unripe pear with minimal flavor to be honest. But I love radicchio so went for it. The pear was juicy and tender. What a delicious contrast to the crunchy radicchio and mustard vinaigrette. If that much care is given to the salad you can imagine how delicious the rest of the meal was. We left our plates scraped clean. 😂 They have a fabulous and affordable wine list and the staff make you feel like longtime friends. Our table was flanked by devoted regulars who were effusive in their love of Chef Valenti’s talents. We could see why! We went on a busy weekend night and they never made us feel rushed to turn the table. For sure this is the best Italian food in san anselmo— but I’m just gonna call it. You can’t get more delicious Italian food in all of Marin.

    We always enjoy this place when we are in the area, excellent attentive service but not overbearing, good selection on menu including vegetarian options. Osso Buco was over the top perfect, risotto great. Decent wine list. We are never disappointed.

    What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary! The 1/2 bottle was the perfect size. I loved to anchovy salad and my husband’s meatballs were delicious. The trout was perfectly cooked, as was the duck. The chocolate olive oil cake was also delicious.

    I came with 4 friends, and we were all delighted with our food, and the service. The veal Milanese is a standout, and I had the salmon poached in olive oil which was silky and delicious.

    Fantastic food and impeccable service made for a memorable and enjoyable dining experience. Artichoke salad was a flavorful delight and risotto with spring vegetables was delicious. We always love having the veal chop and it was superb! The only thing that can top that is tiramisu and panna cotta for dessert. A nice bottle of pinot noir goes a long way to complement a wonderful meal. Chef Valenti rocks as does Cristiano and his team!

    I’m rarely disappointed when I drive half an hour to eat at Valenti & Co! With Cristiano running the front of the house we always get a warm, personal greeting, a great table, good advice on the menu, spot on wine pairings, and for me (alone) there’s a lot of Irish Attack Humor going on both ways! Tonight there were five of us splitting a bottle of Arneis. I split my ‘CRISPY HERB CRUSTED WARM GOAT CHEESE, organic friseè lettuce, baby chioggia beets, balsamic vinaigrette’ with my bride. My main was the Veal Milanese ‘lightly breaded rack chop of milk fed veal with mixed greens, shaved parmigiano and gremolata seasoning’ that pounded out about the size of a large dinner plate and paired with a glass of Barolo. Not many places around here serve Barolo by the glass!! And for dessert I shared the “Chocolate Tower.” I don’t usually order these kinds of dessert because they are heavy and NOT the way I want to end of the meal. This was another surprise from Chef/Owner Duilio. It was so so light and soooo good, both with the Moscato d’ Asti and later the Cappuccino. Ahhhhh!

    As soon as we enter the restaurant, we felt welcomed by the staff. Franco our waiter was attentive. Our main dishes, Osso bucco and the halibut, were delicious, and complemented by a nice glass of red. We ordered the Torre di cioccolate for dessert which was disappointing. The other choices were the traditional Tiramisu and Panna cotta.

    Our waiter was awesome! I don’t remember his name, but he has worked there for years and years. Wonderful service. The food was super tasty, very clean ingredients. Maybe smaller servings than I had hoped for. Ha ha. What really impressed me is my party was the latecomer and obviously the place was shutting down when we were finishing up. The manager made us feel very welcome and said you’re welcome to stay as long as he was there finishing up his work. Over and above good service.

    Valenti continues to be the absolute peak of fine Italian dining in Marin. The staff are amazing, the atmosphere is fancy but feels so comfortable and welcoming. The wine and food are better than I’ve ever tasted anywhere else. I plan to keep coming back for special occasions (and not so special) until I’m old and grey. ❤️❤️❤️

    With the chef owner in the kitchen every night leading the food preapration himself, this restaurant never misses. Plus, the front of house staff is excellent, always recognizing regulars and treating new diners with care. Of the many Italian restaurants in Marin, it is impossible to find one that is more authentic or that serves more perfectly prepared and presented food.

    Valenti is a gem. The room, however, is on the smallish side and can get a bit loud when filled with diners. My wife and I like to go on the early side.

    Christiano is a maestro! He always remembers what wine we drink, our favorite dishes, even where we went for vacation… and that after a hiatus of a few months! How does he do it? And the food is always excellent. Amazing soups. The cod main dish was perfection. And the Pannacotta? The dots of fruit extract and the cherry reduction beat the best of any Italian table. Love this restaurant!
