From Italy to Corte Madera...Welcome to Benissimo, a true neighborhood hotspot where locals go to savor great Italian food. Tucked away right at the end of Camino Alto, the back-road hill that curves over the grade to Mill Valley, Benissimo has all the authenticity of a neighborhood Italian restaurant without the forced campiness from which many other "family Italian" restaurants suffer. The dining room is spacious, yet small enough to remain cozy without feeling cramped. In true Italian style, the owners may greet you at the table, and it's quite possible you might see a neighbor or two dining across the aisle. French doors open onto a wrought-iron patio, which allows diners full view of the street from behind a lush canopy of hanging and potted plants. Lunch: We are available between the hours of 11am - 3pm for Lunch Parties/Buy-outs of 20 or more people. We offer a full Bar, full Restaurant Menu or fixed Menu (to be negotiated) full Service and Complete Privacy in a Beautiful setting. Dinner: We are open between the hours of 4pm - 10pm for Dinner Parties and Restaurant Buy-outs. We offer a full Bar, full Restaurant Menu or fixed Menu (to be negotiated) and full Service in a Beautiful setting. Complete Privacy is offered for Buy-outs Only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Server was very well informed about fish on the menu. Jul 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The mixed drinks now range from $12.00 to $14.00. I find that very expensive for Corte Madera/Larkspur restaurant.As much as I like the restaurant I will not return because of the increased price of drinks. I would suggest Happy Hour from 4pm to 6pm weekdays. Jul 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Service was great, food was excellent. Jul 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lively neighborhood spot. One side is a long bar, with many people talking, drinking and eating. The middle is tables and the other side is booths. It was a fun atmosphere, but it was quite loud. We had a coupon that took $25 off the bill. Jun 19, 2015
