Most favorite restaurant in Marin

This is without a doubt my most favorite restaurant in Marin.

After not having been there for a few weeks due to so much summer activity I decided to try the $3.95 breakfast that was excellent 2 eggs, 2 slices of bacon and 2 pancakes. Though the wait person could have had an attitude due to the low priced breakfast…. she was gracious and welcoming even with a sizable crowd.

I then decided I had to go for dinner ASAP and ended up going that same evening.

Quality of the ingredients, assembly, preparation and and presentation are second to none. The only other Italian restaurant that even comes close is Poggio in Sausalito at twice the price.

Suffice to say another home run with a spectacular balsamic dressing and bits of bacon. Their wine list is very thorough and there are many excellent values.

The servers are all top notch and friendly and willing to provide guidance on both food and wine.

Almost forgot the Affogato (Vanilla gelato with a shot of espresso and topped with whipped cream) is to die for.
