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.

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.
