The Kitchen Table is a neighborhood restaurant located in the West End of San Rafael, California.
Chef Alexander Alioto combines forces with Master Sommelier, Nunzio Alioto, to create a fun, approachable dinner experience.
We focus on high quality, country-style Italian food that is approachable for the entire family. The menu is highlighted by fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local purveyors; the delicate, homemade pastas are a must try for any visit to The Kitchen Table.
Our open concept kitchen invites our neighbors, friends, and family to gather around our kitchen table to
share stories, laugh, and eat well with Chef Alexander.
Nunzio Alioto, Master Sommelier, has hand-picked food-friendly wines from around the world
that provide exceptional value and variance from the average wine list.
