About Us

Since 1996, Insalata’s has brought the warm spirit of the Mediterranean to Marin County. As an integral part of the community, our Bib Gourmand-awarded restaurant has become a place for every occasion, including once-in-a-lifetime celebrations (in the private Siena Room or via catering) and busy weeknight dinners (from the takeout counter). With menus that strike a balance between familiar flavors and enticing new fare, the restaurant strives to make everyone feel welcome at the table.  For Latin American favorites, visit our sister restaurant, Marinitas.

Heidi & Mark Krahling


Heidi Krahling became a chef during California’s culinary coming of age in the 1980s. She and her husband, Mark Krahling, opened Insalata’s in 1996 and both have worked hard to make it a central part of the San Anselmo community. Today, Heidi is the mama-in-residence, guiding her culinary team while Mark ensures that the restaurant’s myriad components run smoothly. Their goal has always been to provide gracious service and delicious Mediterranean-inspired food to their guests while taking care of their teams of chefs and servers.
