Takeout

Our takeout department has been at the heart of our business since we opened. With Marin County favorites such as fattoush salad, grain salads, grilled eggplant, and chicken meatballs, we provide plenty of healthful and flavorful mediterranean cuisine options. To order from our takeout department, call 415.457.8223. We need 48-hour notice for some items, though large or special orders may require more advance notice. Occasionally we may find it necessary to limit the number of takeout orders because of high demand so call early for best selections! We have parking available on the side of the restaurant for our takeout counter guests. View our Takeout Brochure here.

The Team

Heidi & Mark Krahling

Heidi & Mark Krahling

Owners

Heidi Krahling became a chef during California’s culinary coming of age in the 1980s. She and her husband, Mark Krahling, opened Insalata’s in 1996 and both have worked hard to make it a central part of the San Anselmo community. Today, Heidi is the mama-in-residence, guiding her culinary team while Mark ensures that the restaurant’s myriad components run smoothly. Their goal has always been to provide gracious service and delicious Mediterranean-inspired food to their guests while taking care of their teams of chefs and servers.

Taylor Carnes

Head Chef

Taylor Carnes brings creativity and passion to every dish he develops. A former valet at Insalata’s, Carnes trained at the Napa Valley Cooking School and quickly worked his way up the kitchen ranks to head cuisine. When not at the restaurant, he bikes Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County or experiments with delicious new recipes with friends and family.

Beth Casey

Bruce Johnstone

Pastry Chef

Bruce is steeped in American dessert traditions. At Insalata’s, he melds his knack for creating playful spins on American classics with Heidi’s love of seasonal, Mediterranean desserts. Few things make him happier than creating centerpieces for events or developing new designs for seasonal cookies and cupcakes.

Christa Colardo

Christa Colardo

Co-Manager

Christa got her start in the culinary world as a TV cooking show producer. She joined Insalata’s kitchen team after completing culinary school and now brings her food and wine knowledge to both the front and back of the house.

About Us

Since 1996, Insalata’s has brought the warm spirit of the Mediterranean to Marin County. As an integral part of the community, our bib gourmand-awarded restaurant has become a place for every occasion, including once-in-a-lifetime celebrations (in the private Siena Room or via catering) and busy weeknight dinners (from the takeout counter). With menus that strike a balance between familiar flavors and enticing new fare, the restaurant strives to make everyone feel welcome at the table.  For Latin American favorites, visit Insalata’s sister restaurant, Marinitas.

Insalata’s proudly partners with ExtraFood.org to get food donations to vulnerable people in our community.  Please visit their website for information on what they do and how you can help.
