Restaurant Description

Historically known as the "881 Club", the new Vin Antico Restaurant and Wine Bar has beautifully restored the old space nestled in the heart of the Downtown San Rafael Business District. Vin Antico emits the warmth and grace of true Italian culture through the beauty of imported Italian marble, the soft glow produced from the exquisite candle-like fixtures and the overall library feel from the brick wall and earthy Tuscan colors to the hand made leather bound menus. The regional Italian fare is showcased in a dazzling exhibition kitchen. From Piedmonte to Toscana every palette is tantalizingly sated. To complement these traditional and innovative dishes is a wine program with the same intensity and passion. A mouthwatering variety from every region awaits each guest. Vin Antico transports you to Italy, evoking memories of time spent or the longing to make the journey.

 Went to Vin Antico on the recomendation of some friends who just got back from California. It was amazing! It rivals any restaurant in Boston! The food was deliciously fresh and exquisitely presented. The service was warm and friendly. Even the owner introduced herself to us and sent complimentary prosecco's (we were celebrating a birthday. We felt very welcomed and special. All the courses we ate were perfect and the desserts are out of this world! Next time we're in San Rafael this is the first place we will come. Thanks, Kerri ;)
