Since moving to Tiburon three years ago I'd heard about Frantoio, and on the occasion of my partner's birthday we checked it out. Everyone we came in contact with from the friendly host to the busboy, waiter and maitre d' were cordial and welcoming. Although the menu offerings were fairly standard for this type of restaurant, there w ... read more

Service was good, food not so much. Prices were reasonable for the level of restaurant but the food was not. Gnocchi appetizer was fine, nothing special. Ordered one of the daily specials for my entree and was deflated, my duck was overcooked and rubbery and I wasn't able to eat it. It came with a nice risotto which was great (th ... read more

Love Frantoio's ambiance, their food and special olive oil pressed on the premises. I had a wonderful Cuori Di Lattuga Alla Caesar salad followed by Ravioli di Funghi, enhanced by the white truffle oil and brown butter-sage sauce. The Panna Cotta for dessert was delicious, smooth and light, embellished by the raspberries and black ... read more

This is probably my new favorite Italian restaurant in Marin county.

Also the rest of the staff was sooo amazin ... read more

A very pleasant and unusual Italian dining place. Prices are moderate for the quality. Service was excellent. The room is very nicely decorated without being fussy and the olive press is a nice addition.

Don't go on a holiday such as Valentine's Day. The menu was pared down and very small. I found it hard to find something I really wanted. Also, I dislike squash and asked for another green veg that they definitely had. I was told that because it was a busy night, there were no substitutions. Consequently, I left actually hungry.

We love coming to Frantoio. We are familiar with many of the servers and hosts and know the experience is reliably a great one. Birthdays, anniversaries, Fathers’ Day - you name it!

Frantoio offers reliably fine food: good salads, housemade focaccia and pastas, various pizze from a wood-burning oven, locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, fresh fish, and more.

Food no better than so-so. Panna Cotta should have been soft and melt in the mouth...instead it was like jello. Nice space, but way too loud. Service was very pleasant, and pretty much timed to our "progress". With all the choices in Marin County, probably will not go back again.

Very disappointing. We have dined here many times and have always enjoyed the food, but this meal was below par. The pasta had obviously been plated well in advance and thrown in the microwave to reheat. The sauce was gloppy. Perhaps it is best not to dine at this restaurant on a Sunday night.

My wife and I live nearby and are regulars for dinners. We like the ambiance, the service, and, of course, the food. The main dining room is usually reasonably full but in no way a hotspot so it is possible for couples to talk. Further, there is ample parking which, in our area, is a major problem.

We have been to this restaurant several times before. It is a great place for groups and can accommodate even larger groups. The food is quite good and we like the atmosphere.
