Of all my reviews EMPORIO RULLI is by far the best restaurant I've ever been to. The food was delicious and the pasties light and fluffy. Family friendly. When I come back to Larkspur it will be an every visit stop.

In our world of competitive designer coffees, Emporio Rulli rules. The amazing array of delectable goodies is not for you if you're on a diet. Great service, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. The whimsical Carlo Marchiori mural is the frosting on the cake!

This is a wonderful place to stop mid-morning for a cup of coffee and a sinful patisserie. The atmosphere is buzzy and you could almost imagine you were in a European city for your coffee break.

I love meeting my friends here. it's a great taking-off point for hikes up Baltimore Canyon. Parking is usually available on Magnolia or a side street. The espresso drinks are great, the pastries are great, and so are the sandwiches. They also have ice cream and an entire bakery if that's your thing. And there's an old-fashioned donut shop across...

WE love this gem - seating inside and out - lovely menu full of treats and sweets. We pop in for coffee and sugar - every once in awhile Very popular with men in Spandex with flashy bikes.

We stopped by Rulli for desert after eating elsewhere. The cups of gelato were excellent and reasonably priced. Their pastry cases were laden with wonderful looking treats, alas we all were already full. The left side of the establishment is more of a sandwich - lunch place, I have made a mental note to return to eat there too. Delicious... More

This place has been around for a long time. Their pastries are nice, but you really need to order the tiramisu, best in Marin. Next time you have a dinner party, special order one for your guest, they will love you for it!

I love to pop into this place for a quick coffee and pastry. They also have sandwiches, I think. You can imagine for the hour or half hour that you're here, that you've just sprung into a charming European cafe. They also have a wide range of cookies and pastries that you can take home.

Wonderful atmosphere! Sitting inside at small cozy tables or outside with beautiful views and downtown Larkspur. Coffee and pots of tea are enjoyable. Great selection of pastries. Gelato and cakes are beautiful as well as delicious. Great place to meet friends and sit and enjoy!
