Okay, we may have just exhausted our Italian vocabulary. But while our Italian needs work, Mill Valley basks in an abundance of Italian culinary riches, with a dozen excellent restaurants serving up a variety of fare originating from the boot-shaped nation.
We're kicking off our Best of 2012 contest by focusing on Italian restaurants, and you have all the power. Voting comes in a variety of forms: you can vote in the poll below, but the pollis not scientific and is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. You also weigh in by writing in the Comments section below and by rating and reviewing the restaurants on their Mill Valley Patch Places pages (links below).
Hint: The ratings and reviews count extra.
Here are some of our favorite places, but if we've left one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll add it:
Voting is open until 9 a.m. Friday. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.
