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!
This is without question the best Italian restaurant in Marin County. We are from Sonoma and make the drive to enjoy the cuisine at Valenti. Bravo
The food is expensive and there is very little of it. The backyard dining featured cement flooring and a wood fence surrounding and one tree... zero charm. Add to that a barking dog on the other side of the fence and it was less than pleasant. They did provide focaccia bread, which was good since the portions were so small, we would have left hungry without it. Originally they only brought one dipping plate, so we asked for another to accommodate each of us being able to double dip the bread in our own olive oil.Both my friend and I shared a radicchio and peach salad that was bland. We both had the papparadelle with rabbit ragout. I think the ragout was sprayed on. Honestly, there was so little meat in it, we had to look for it. It was not a large portion by any stretch and for $25, it was definitely not value for the money. There were very few people in the restaurant.. I think only three tables were occupied. It was a Thursday at 6:30, so maybe that’s not unusual. I don’t know how this restaurant has gotten a 4.8 rating? Not sure if I received Open Table credit as I don’t recall them asking our name when we arrived to confirm the reservation I’d made.
I just love Valenti & Co! The food is always interesting, delicious and beautifully presented! The back patio is wonderful for relaxed outdoor dining. The service is friendly and efficient. This is a great place for a first date or a special occasion.
Christiano is the best!!!
Good food, beautiful presentation, and attentive service. The patio is by Civid necessity, and could be made a little more special without much work. On the whole it's a "do again."
I go to Valenti once or twice a month. It is not just the best Italian in Marin, it is the best overall restaurant. This most recent time I had the soup and then the corn and mushroom risotto. My wife had figs and ham for appetizer followed by pasta with octopus. We had the saffron panda cotta for dessert. All excellent! Try the tables on the back patio.
Exceptional as always! Highly recommend for exquisite dishes and wonderful service. Sitting outside is an added bonus at this time.
Awesome service! Great pasta! Nice wine selection!
This place is a bit “off the radar” but the food never disappoints. My lamb was spectacular and I love the crunchy Tiramasu. Outdoor dining on the back patio was just lovely.
Special occasion indeed! Friends leaving their homers for the first time in months to join me, a regular, at Valenti & Co. Everyone loved it! I love the food, attentive service and the back patio. My favorite restaurant in all of Marin!!
Love the outdoor eating, the food was excellent, thought I was in Italy!
Love this place and hope to keep it going through these rough times.
Fabulous food as usual and the back patio is great
Food is wonderful. Terrace needs some more heaters and some ambiance, but food makes it all worthwhile.
The food at Valenti is consistently good. The pappardelle with rabbit sugo is extraordinary and is my favorite dish. The risotto is excellent. I do wish for more variety in the salads for a first course. His staff is professional and experienced. Even under COVID limitations they are welcoming and skillful in their tasks, despite the difficulty of serving outdoors.
The food was delicious. The service was great. Our table was on the street so it wasn't level.
We love this gem! The fish is always perfect, and the wine choices excellent. I always get their radicchio salad!
Attentive outdoor service (street in front of restaurant roped off). Enjoyed a very nice dinner. Restaurant in quaint, Marin County town.
Exceptional as always! Highly recommend. Sit in the front for amusement.
The outside patio in the back is such a nice touch. Cristiano always makes his guests feel so welcome, and the food is delicious and wine list is impressive.
Perfect! Great staff and menu!
