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 2 out of 5 by Not terrible, but in no way exceptional. Food was kind of bland and uninspired. Service started out good but declined. Cappachino was apparently left sitting, and served nearly cold. Waiter was stunned when we returned it, and acted squirrely till the end of the meal. Dec 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Food and service were good. Place was crowded due to a local company Christmas party. Ravioli was excellent, red sauce was a little acidy, could have used some tweeking. Desserts were excellent. Would probably go back to try the pizza. Dec 13, 2014
