Best Italian Food Goes to Bistro Ginolina

The first thing that becomes apparent in our inaugural is that there are a lot of very good Italian restaurants in our city.

While all the restaurants are delicious, a new kid on the block took the prize. , who first came to San Rafael in 2010, with Chef Federico Sabino Rusciano in charge of a menu that includes all our Italian favorites-from pizza to pasta to Scaloppine a' piacere.

Garnering a full five stars in our business directory, Patch reader Giani Pinazzi said “I for one love all the seafood pasta and my husband loved his Lamb Chops with a side of pasta... it wasn't on the menu but they made it for him.”
“Best tutto mare (all seafood) pasta in the states!” another reader said. 

You can watch a video of Rusciano , a favorite of the restaurant.

Coming in second is 17-year downtown resident on A Street. Although it tied with Bistro Ginolina in our poll at 29 votes, more user comments on our Facebook page and reviews of Ginolina prompted the victory.

Il Davide features a lush menu from Executive Chef and co-owner David Haydon, who’s worked in the business for 15 years. Watch a video of Haydon

Third place goes to on G Street, with 13 votes. Watch our video of how to prawns in tomato, capers, basil, white wine sauce.
