Great addition to Italian cuisine in Marin County – I like Mezzo Mezzo more than most of the Italian restaurants up here. Interesting menu, good wines. Vin Antico on 4th St. is a hipper venue, but the food is unexceptional, meagre, and the service isn't much. Mezzo Mezzo is the opposite. Not hip but great food, a good amount of it and attentive service.
I'd recommend their antipasto appetizer and a green salad with potatoes. I'm a vegetarian and generally have a pasta dish. My dinner partners have enjoyed fish and beef dishes. Excellent Primitivo.
Different kind of italian food: It's Scilian – My wife and I went to Mezzo Mezzo after hearing that they were a sponsor of the 2007 Italian Film Festival. To be honest, I was impressed. We began with a discussion of wine with the owner and an excellent 2002 Nero D'Avola was suggested, after a complimentary taste of several wines. We ordered the Nzalata Sicilia--a combination of greens, potatoes, fennel, and capers--and a simple Nzalata Verdi. I had the grilled sardines and my wife ordered the grilled quail. While the sardines were excellent and I would order them again, the quail were outstanding. Throughout the meal, the owner stopped by to check on us and talk about Sicily. The food was deliciouly different and the service was very attentive and caring. Recommended.
Wonderful! – The food and service are the likes of which I have not had in Marin EVER. All those places which have become so unbearable in the last ten years or so (Lark Creek Inn/Insalata)need to step up and take a look at how it's done. Tasty, thoughtful food, wine list is fab. Servers offered suggestions and tasting for a glass of wine for just one! Can't wait to go back with friends, loved ones and colleges.
Great Italian Food! – My husband took me here for our anniversary and I was quite impressed with the food and service. I had not known of this restaurant - and it was lovely inside both romantic and cozy. We shared two appetizers and two entrees. The wine list was quite extensive with a range of options to choose from depending on if you are casually dining or there for a 'special' night like we were and want to spend a bit more. Overall, a wonderful experience.
Editorial Review – Authentic Sicilian cuisine is served up to Marin County foodies with a menu full of pastas, seafood and Sicilian wine.
