Took me 5 years to visit, why did I wait so long? Surprising menu, good execution, waiter a bit surly, but overall a great stop.
I remember going to La Ginestra in 1976 when I first moved to Marin. I enjoyed the food then and I am enjoying it now. Their goal is to serve fresh, authentic, Italian Cuisine. In addition to great pasta, I had the Pasta with Pesto which was excellent, they produce an excellent pizza. The wine list is good, and the... 更多
For years, we've walked past this old fashioned Italian on our way to more modern places in this charming town. Boy, have we been missing out on a great place. The clientele is mostly older locals who know a good thing. The food is authentic, very well prepared and generously served by attentive well trained waiters. The seafood is very... 更多
I love this place. I have been going here as long as they have been in existance and love the food and the people. Maria the owner makes fresh ravioli and pirogi fresh every day. they will bend over backwards to make sure you're happy
A neighborhood, casual dress, italian bistro. Food very good, as was the service. Located right in town, easy walking distance from a few hotels. You feel like a local...
Great family restaurant in down town Mill Valley serving classic Italian American food with an innovative flair.

The service is always warm and friendly. Reservations are... 更多

This beloved family restaurant has been a staple in my family's life for decades. I feel the need to write a review in hopes that they read it and respond.... There... 更多
This was the worst meal I have ever had at La Ginestra or anywhere in Mill Valley. To begin with, our waiter had trouble understanding and communicating. We ordered a salad with calamari and received one with shrimp[.Then our medium rare steak arrived raw and tough full of gristle (had it before and it tender and succulent). Finally had the... 更多
Finally! Some great Old School pizza that any East Coast person would recognize and appreciate. Good variety of toppings, great tomato sauce, good size, excellent crust (like a delicious Italian bread). Warm and welcoming family-owned, over 50 years in business. My vote for Best Pizza in Marin, and one of the best in the Bay Area!
We have been going to La Ginestra for 50 years, and have never had a bad meal. The pastas, pizzas, fish and pretty much everything is really good. The service staff has been there for years. The prices are reasonable for Mill Valley. It can be noisy.
