Milano Ristorante is a 38 year-old family-run business tucked away in a less-trafficked part of the beautiful Tiburon peninsula. All the locals know about them but they’re a taxi ride from the Tiburon ferry landing so travelers have to seek them out. That’s a big part of the reason that Milano has become a Marin hangout with a local crowd and lots of interesting local characters. They’ve been called Tiburon’s answer to “Cheers” because they try hard to know your name right away and they're always glad you came. Their Italian dishes are made fresh, with locally-sourced ingredients, but you won’t find any modern creations there, only good old-fashioned Italian cuisine, with a focus on the classics. Chef owner Ruggero (Roger, to the locals) is there every night, darting from the kitchen to the bar, stopping to say hello to diners and even play with toddlers. The place reflects his casual, warm and friendly energy. Kick back and get away in Tiburon’s best-loved hideout!
