Is there anything more wholesome and comforting than an authentic Italian dinner? The best Italian dinner in Marin is served nightly at Ristorante La Toscana, an authentic Italian restaurant located just off the 101 in northern San Rafael, across from the Marin Civic Center.
Dinner at La Toscana can be a dressed up or dressed down affair. With a large, recently renovated dining room, a private event space that can seat up to 14 people, a beautiful outdoor courtyard that can be reserved for up to 30 guests, and a full bar with TV’s to watch your favorite games. La Toscana provides the perfect intimate or festive environment for every dinner occasion.
Signature dinner dishes, true to La Toscana’s roots in Lucca, Italy—include Gnocchi della Casa, Calamari Steak Dore, Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Milanese, Veal Scalloppine, and, of course, traditional Italian restaurant dinner pasta classics such as Ravioli, Cannelloni, Lasagne and Spaghetti Bolognese with Meatballs. La Toscana also has many California influences in our menu and wine varietals.
Marilyn and Paolo Mori opened La Toscana almost 30 years ago with a vision to provide a great Italian restaurant to eat dinner and drink wine with the same feel as the eateries they had grown up with in Tuscany. Today, La Toscana is still run by Marilyn and her daughter Laura and son Michael, along with longtime Chef and family friend Giovanni Raccanello, whose talent and culinary artistry make dinner a delectable affair.
