Oven Roasted Lamb Loin Medallions*
Ratte fingerling potatoes and green beans sautéed with smoked speck prosciutto, whole grain mustard sauce
Service was very good. With the Covid mandate of separation dining indoors, they complied totally. Plenty of space between tables.
I had mussels with linguine which was perfectly prepared, although slightly cool. Think my order may have been plated and then waited for the risotto, which the other folks in my party ordered. All in all a pleasant experience!
First time I was so disappointed. The gnocchi tasted like wet masheD potatoes. The creamy goat cheese sauce did not enhance the gnocchi. My friend’s cavatelli was bland and the food came to us like warm.
Best part of my first (and last) date was the attentive service and fabulous food! Christiano and Antonio and all the staff there are so warm, friendly and thoughtful! I had the gnocchi in goat cheese sauce with balsamic reduction...a delightful evening companion. A great first/last date location regardless who you are sitting in front of!
We eat here fairly often and think of it as among the best. This time I had the lamb and it the three chops were magnificent in size and shape, but missing some flavor that I was expecting. Perhaps even a touch more salt. Very strange, I know. Still this is a place we cherish.
The back patio is awesome. Plus, after 15 months, I got to sink my teeth into the pounded veal! What a great dinner and dining experience!
Unfortunately the service was quite poor the evening we dined at the restaurant. It took over an hour and fifteen minutes to get our entre. My wife's appetizer, a soup, was delivered warm. When asked for a hotter bowl of soup the waiter returned over 10 minutes later with the same soup bowl having been warmed in a microwave. When asked why the the meals were so late to our table one waiter said they were short kitchen staff and another said they had overbooked 7:15pm reservations. Overall a very disappointing dining experience.
I don't understand when a restaurant is short handed why they don't tell you when you arrive. Then you can make a decision of whether it is worth it to wait 40 minutes for a simple green salad and 3 meatball appetizer. The lamb shank was not good. Hardly any meat and tasteless. I would not go back.
The food is exquisite and as good as one can find in Marin. Cooked to order and always delicious. The service from the waiter to the bus staff are pleasant, professional and enhance the dining experience.
Excellent northern Italian fare with outstanding service. Me and my wife have been coming here for years and they never disappoint. They also have wonderful wines to pair with the different dishes.
Wonderful dining experience- everything was excellent!
Fabulous meal as always and the service is first class.
A wonderful dining experience, with the most delicious rabbit pappardelle! The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was beyond incredible, and they are very knowledgeable about the wine they offer. We will definitely be back!
Excellent on all levels
Excellent food, super -nice friendly servers, and best chef ever.
The restaurant remains an outstanding choice. Delicious and refined cuisine in a calm setting.
Lovely atmosphere in the courtyard and outstanding flavors
Still the best in the Ross Valley. The courtyard is very pleasant and warm with heaters.
Excellent Valentine’s experience. Food was great and the heat lamps outside were perfect!
The experience was fantastic! The staff made us feel like family and welcoming like we where in their home. Would highly recommend to everyone for a special occasion, or just an evening meal. The food was amazing and the presentations were spectacular as well.
Chef Valenti and his staff are simply amazing. My husband and I come back here again and again . Authentic Italian cuisine expertly prepared from top quality ingredients, brought to you with a smile. The Italian wine selection is excellent!
The food, the service and outdoor ambiance was so wonderful especially after being in lock down for a few months. The staff has always been welcoming and accommodating. Once they get to know you, they remember your choice of drinks and favorite foods. The new outdoor heaters work great!
So happy my favorite restaurant is open again! So much so, I went back 2 nights in a row! The upgrades to the back patio, great heaters and decor were impressive, adding to the warm comfortable bistro feel. As always the service was impeccable and food unparalleled! I so appreciate the extra effort these gentlemen (truly an attentive team!) take to make me and all my friends feel important and welcome.
The back patio is charming, with heaters, and ideal for outdoor dining during the pandemic. The service is always friendly and outstanding, as is the food.
We had a delightful ,scrumptious ,dinner on the back patio . It was a super chilly night but I was toasty and warm under the heat lamps . We all three had the duck which was absolutely delicious!!!
I seriously don’t know what was better the food for though wonderful caring service. I will go back in a heartbeat and I suggest if you haven’t tried Valenti and Company that you do!!
Everything was fine except I wish all restaurants would have some sort of "housewine" option.All of the wines that were in the $50.00 range were weak.You had to go up into the $75.00-$90.00 range to get a decent wine.Too expensive for a local town Restaurant.
Best Italian in the bay area staff is amazing
We are a local San Anselmo family and were disappointed in our visit. We were put in the far corner table on the back patio, which was very, very dark. We had to ask for candles to lighten up the space a little. We had to wait for waters, silverware, napkins for a good 5+ minutes and then we felt rushed after each course. The food was fine, and the patio was pretty, but the corner we were tucked in wasn't very inviting and the service wasn't great. Wanted to like it more!
Everything was just perfect! My favorite restaurant in all of Marin County! Service is impeccable... nicest most attentive staff...food was sublime...risotto was mouth watering and the comfortable outdoor dining patio is lovely with hanging bistro lights and warming heaters available. This is a must have experience!!
Lovely courtyard setting with heat lamps, good for dining during COVID. The food is great but suggest moving to more hot appetizers now that the season is moving to fall. Good selection of Italian wines by the glass, which pair well with the food.
Amazing salmon and home made pasta dish.
Delicious flavors — I can’t wait to come back !!
As always. A great meal with outstanding service!
Valenti always offers excellent food with exceptional service!
Consistently the best in town
Great waiter great food
Great patio for outdoor dining, and the food is still spectacular! Service friendly and prompt. A great place for any occasion.
this was a birthday dinner and we were pleasantly surprised with the patio setting.
The salads we ordered were wonderfully prepared and tasted fantastic. The main courses were most tasty. We will certainly return
5 STARS!!!! Absolutely LOVE this restaurant!!! The menu and the food and the presentation is incredible! Some of the best of the staff at Frantoio's Restaurant in Mill Valley, which used to be our family's fave Italian restaurant until it closed years ago, moved to Valenti & Co. Ristorante, and this is now my new best Italian restaurant! Try the homemade Papardelle made with braised rabbit, raised by the restaurant's own chef. And don't forget the fresh and tender Halibut, or the huge and perfectly cooked Steak....the only problem you will have is deciding which entree or appetizer to order...no worries...order everything...we did!!! Oh and by the way, the barking of the neighbor's dog next door that someone on this site complained about? Well, remember when you were in Italy and dining in a neighborhood restaurant there? Same thing...it's part of the ambiance, and the cute dog's barks just means he wants to come out and play.... :)
Every meal at Valenti & Co. feels like a special occasion. The food is great and the perils who work there are wonderful. I highly recommend it.
Staff a bit scattered between street dining and patio dining but undrrstandable
When we are jn town we always come to eat at Valenti & Co.. Love the food and service. Especially Christiano makes it a very special experience every time!
