Insalata's Restaurant is moving into it's 25th year of the community minded restaurants in San Anselmo. Insalata's receives Bib Gourmand from Michelin for it's 10th year in a row.
Our goal at Insalata's has always been to bring luscious Mediterranean food, gracious service and a warm atmosphere to our diners. For over 20 years we have shared this experience of intimate dining and joyful celebrations in a variety of ways.

We also offer take out dining for those days when time is of the essence, or catered affairs where we bring great food and staff into your home or venue. Our guests have become family and we have grown together in the community in which we all live and work. Everyone at Insalata's is extremely proud to be a part of this extended "village" family.

    The food was amazing but our waiter was horrible- we had to wave him over to our table 3 times for our needs. We observed him chatting with his associates longer than serving customers.

    You can always be assured that you'll get a great meal at Insalata's. Consistently good food, excellent desserts, and stellar service. It's one of my "go to" places -- especially with out-of-town visitors. Love sitting outside on their charming patio area.

    Insalata's is a longtime favorite of ours. Yesterday I took a friend there for lunch for her birthday. Sitting in the outside space was very pleasant. The host and server were both friendly, helpful, and efficient. We shared avocado toast; she had the misto salad with salmon, and I had the squid pasta with shrimp. We shared the pavlova and the celebration cake for her birthday dessert, with Happy Birthday written on her dessert plate. Everything was delicious.

    I had Salmon with a wonderful squash puree sauce. It was cooked to perfection. Also had Eggplant fries that were delicious and a lovely chocolate bourbon tart for desert and of course the Fatouch salad that's always a winner. It is worth the trip from SF to San Anselmo.

    This is where we go for a special dinner - it was our wedding anniversary. We shared two excellent dishes: an heirloom tomato and peach salad, and an amazingly rich vegetarian agnolotti. The service was attentive but not pesky. We love this place.

    We had a superb meal outdoors last night. The outdoor eating area was lovely and the food was delicious. My request for a table in the back was met, as well as my request for a candle in our dessert to celebrate a birthday. Our server, Sabine, was fabulous. Everything was perfect. 5 stars! Thank you.

    One of our favorite local restaurants. The flavors are unusual and always delicious. The service was not good. Slow, flustered....not the friendly, professional service which is the norm. Perhaps our waitress was new? Food was delicious as always.
