Insalata’s offers New Outdoor and Indoor Dining!

Insalata's is OPEN for Lunch and Dinner  Indoor and Outdoor! Reservations can be made on OpenTable.
Read the current COVID-19 directives for Marin County.

Take Out from our Deli Case (for cold items only) is open between the hours of 11:00am and 7:00pm. Check out what's In the Case Today (updated daily at 11:00am). Please know that phone orders will take 20-30 minutes to fill AFTER 11:00am.

Now you can order COLD DELI FOOD from the Case online and pick up!

For your health and safety as well as the health and safety of our staff, we have removed tables to allow for social distancing and trained our staff in best practices, washing hands, wearing masks and lots of sanitizing. We understand that some diners might not feel comfortable coming inside to dine and so we will still be offering outdoor dining and curbside pick up for take out. Stay safe and healthy!

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.

Insalata’s proudly partners with ExtraFood.org to get food donations to vulnerable people in our community.  Please visit their website for information on what they do and how you can help.

Heidi & Mark Krahling

Owners

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.

A former valet at Insalata’s, Carnes trained at the Napa Valley Cooking School and quickly worked his way up the kitchen ranks to head cuisine. When not at the restaurant, he bikes Mt.
