Autumn at Piazza D’Angelo: A special offer for our guests

Autumn at Piazza D’Angelo: A special offer for our guests

We love to provide our Marin Hotels guests with lots of ideas for the best things to do in Marin during their stay with us. We’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our ideas with special offers for our favorite Marin Experiences. Our program is called Keys To Marin. We’ll feature more about this program on our websites soon, but we’re giving the readers of our blog advance notice!


The current Featured Experience is offered by Piazza D'Angelo. If you’ve been following the Eating & Drinking in Marin section of our blog, then you know we love a night out at Piazza D’Angelo in downtown Mill Valley. A very short walk from Mill Valley Inn and a brief drive from Acqua Hotel and Waters Edge Hotel, Piazza D’Angelo is a long-time favorite of locals, families, date-night couples, and groups of friends.

The restaurant perfectly blends Northern California and Southern Italy both on the plate and in the atmosphere. It's warm, the staff is friendly, and everyone is having fun. It's bustling.

Our favorite dishes are the Pizza Margherita, Conchiglie Alla Contadina (handmade pasta, naturally), and always the special-of-the-day salad and fish. Order them all and your server will figure out how to pace your meal leisurely Italian-style. And even if you usually say no to the bread, break your rule — their complimentary bread and dipping oil is worth it. If they have a bottle of Cannonau, a uniquely Sardininan wine, on the menu, order that too. Trust.


A special offer for our Marin Hotels guests!

Felicia Ferguson and Luigi Petrone, the second generation owners of Piazza D’Angelo, are offering our Marin Hotels Guests a complimentary glass of prosecco or complimentary dessert when they dine at Piazza D’Angelo. Grazie to Felicia and Luigi!
