This wonderful family-run restaurant provides consistently excellent food to eat in or take home. A gem!

Really excellent chicken on a spit, with pasta, salad, rolls and dessert. Everything is fresh and ready for pick up pretty quickly.

We have eaten here many times but love to have our meals at home from Gira Polli. We either pre-order and pick up or pay Dine In Marin to deliver to us. The rotisserie chicken is incredible!!!! I love the aroma in our house!!! The owners are from Sicily and know how to make chicken. Their rotisserie oven is from... More

They have whole meals for takeout including salad, potatoes & greens and pasta that goes along with the chicken. A great deal for all that you get. The chicken is the BEST, great flavor and juicy.

Had a reservation for party of 4. Showed up. Completely ignored for 10+ minutes while they had multiple open tables. Made eye contact several times. Waived. Nothing. Left. Horrible service. Totally clueless.

It must have been an off night based on the other reviews. We had an early reservation at 5:30 p.m. so the restaurant was not that crowded. Two of the entrees we ordered were the house specials of chicken and pasta with chicken. The chicken was dry. The pasta was nothing special but the chicken on the pasta was pretty... More

For over 20 years Norine and Michele Ferrante have served up thousands rotisserie chickens to hungry Mill Valley households , but what lays behind the "to go" window is tasty and fresh homemade fare. We enjoyed an excellent Hearts of Romaine salad with properly chilled lettuce leaves, light dressing and shaved cheese. My entree was Tortellini - made that day... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our room. We were very casually dressed as car travelers and tired, so we did not want to change clothes. After we entered the restaurant we immediately wished were more dressed up because it was definitely that kind of place. The menu was broad with all the usual Italian dishes. Food was good,... More

My wife and I were in town for a Wedding, so on a lark we decided to swing by early evening on a Thursday night. The restaurant was relatively empty, but they had a long takeout line. The locals seem to love this place. We got seated right away. Nice quiet ambiance in the place. A cool curved ceiling. Light... More

Owner is a sweetheart. Food is well done and I think that due to the fact it doesn't look like a fancy Mill Valley restaurant from the outside it is not always crowded (a good thing, unless it's your business). Their signature roasted chicken is excellent.
