Bravissimo!Did a drive by for Pizza Margarita, side of arugula, bottle of Aglianico, tiramisu with a splash of rum
This place takes be back to the boot, and the food & service are always top notch, whether at the bar, dining room, or patio
A presto!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Eats, Lovely Room, Cool StaffPoggio is a warm and wonderful place in the heart of Sausalito that will not disappoint. The chicken entree was delicious, the pasta and pizza is first rate and the Staff is professional without being at all pretentious.
Just a great place to eat and have a fun and comfortable evening.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMRecently ReacquaintedI live in Sausalito but--for whatever reason--have not been to Poggio in more than 5 years. Perhaps it seemed a little too 'touristy' and thus avoidable. So it was a great pleasure to become reacquainted last week with this wonderful local restaurant. The food was quite good, we enjoyed a wonderful (never tried before) italian-influenced chardonnay from Sebastopol, and the service was personal and most attentive. For visitors and locals alike, Poggio is a fine dining experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Everything!Food selection was interesting and every dish was filled with unique flavors and delicious. Service was fabulous. Can't wait to go back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful service, wonderful foodWe just visited Poggio for a surprise 18th birthday party for my daughter. I coordinated two tables in advance...one for my daughter and her friends and one for the adults. Nolan helped facilitate seating my daughter's friends before we arrived to help with the surprise.
The staff was amazing and took great care of us.
The food, as always, was excellent. I've dined at Poggio many times and have never been disappointed.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSausalito FavoritePoggio's is one of our favorite places to dine in Marin County for special occasions. We have always left happy. It was a beautiful day out for a wonderful lunch.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific Italian FoodPoggio's is as good as many of the better restaurants in Venice, Rome, or Florence. Authentic Italian cuisine. Great wood oven for pizza. Superb Italian wine list. This is a consistent Bay Area All Star.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful lunch, from starterWonderful lunch, from starter to desert everything was an amazing experience and the waitress was a great advisor!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect and discreet service!Perfect and discreet service! Great food. Upscale, QUIET and mature atmosphere. Open and airy.
I arrived before my date and was directed to the bar area as a fine place to wait. The bar guy discreetly noted this and immediately came forth with two coasters and a drinks menu and even guided a new guest to a different chair to leave the two seats available for me and my date. THAT alone is great service! Perceptive staff!
When my date arrived we opted to go straight to our table. The table service was equally discreet and perfect. No breaking into the conversation to as "how is everything!". They just kept a watchful eye out and made sure it was all great. GREAT food as well. Loved the Ahi appetizer especially.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Italian restaurant hasThis Italian restaurant has a beautiful Bay view! Local and fresh and well- prepared food means even more in California with the wealth of available ingredients. We had wonderful strawberries and locally caught halibut. Delicious!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSo delicious we will returnThis was my second visit to Poggio. The first visit was a birthday treat from my friend. We had such a fabulous ime she chose the venue for me to take her out for her birthday.
We never felt rushed, as we sat outside, enjoying the gorgeous day. Our appetizer (shrimp, avocado, blood oranges, radicchio, greens) was outstanding. We enjoyed it with the fabulous bread and sweet butter. My friend's grilled halibut was perfectly done, and the kale was beatifully prepared. (I snitched a bite.). My scallops were so fresh and scrumptious I was in heaven. It was supposed to come with arugula, but the substitution of watercress was likely even better.. We both enjoyed a side of asparagus. The mint and Meyer lemon vinaigrette were inspire4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizers were excellent.Appetizers were excellent. Our main dishes seemed a little bland in comparison. We would definitely go back and eat "tapas" style. Decor and ambience were great. We would definitely go back if in the neighborhood.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSausalito GemGreat dining experience. Waiter knowledgeable. Food top notch.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice for lunch onGreat choice for lunch on a fine day. Service outstanding, food very good. Had a salumi platter with a bit too much white fat on it, but other than that, the pasta and salads were delicious. Would go back and recommend it.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEuropean AmbiancePoggio is unique. One is transported to Europe - to the unhurried atmosphere of fine dining and ambiance so often missing in this country. The wait staff is knowledgeable, patient and willing to go the extra mile for special requests. The food is wonderful, the choices varied and, always, the quality and taste is uniformly excellent. "Subtle" is a word the chef knows well - flavors are individualized, meant to be savored, enjoyed. And the setting is warm, comfortable and sophisticated. If you can, ask to be seated at an outside table and at once find yourself in Paris, Italy, or any country where people watching is an added course.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWE celebrated a birthday lunchWE celebrated a birthday lunch there and everything was perfect-the lovely room, a perfect table, excellent food, terrific service. Can't wait to return again for dinner!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest on the BayThis was our second visit to this restaurant in Sausalito, and exceeded even our wonderful first visit. The dinners typically have some Italian flair, and were superb: lamb chops and risotto for me, spinach lasagna for my wife, both cooked to perfection. The restaurant is quite quiet, particularly for these days, and includes some outside seating across from the harbor for warm evenings, and the service is attentive and polite. Of the places we've eaten in Sausalito, Tiburon, and Mill Valley, Poggio's is way above the rest! My only regret is that I didn't find out if it is named after Poggio Bracciolini, a fifteenth-century humanist.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, welcoming, accommodatingWonderful, welcoming, accommodating, and patient service for our large group; very respectful of our somewhat boisterous reunion of very old friends. Thank you.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. This is whereGreat place. This is where you shoud be in Sausalito.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWill return soonWe shared as to,have more tastes. The beef cheeks with polenta appetizer was delicious. Served piping hot and full of flavor. Is very rich, so sharing is the ticket. Next an interesting salad with fresh peas, fava beans, and other veggies. The pesto pasta also a pleaser. Can I say that I could have made an entire meal on the bread. Is just the best.
A big thank you to our server who was just attentive enough. I am sure she saw that two friends needed some girl time, and paced everything so we had plenty.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good and Very ConsistentHave been to Poggio several times over the last several years. This visit was for an early dinner, so the place was especially quiet. As always, every one of the staff was friendly enough and highly professional. And the food - very good - as always. Looking forward to returning.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst of all, the staff isFirst of all, the staff is so personable and professional!

This last time service was very spotty, had to ask for things several time, waited a very long time before taking appetizer orders. I hope it was because it was Easter and extra busy. I will definitely return even though Chef Peter Mcnear is no longer there...the food was still outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfecto!Not only is the room lovely, there are sidewalk tables with marina views and a ringside view of the people parade. But it is the food that is truly exceptional-a seasonal menu, with unique items that are quite perfectly prepared. I've been here twice, but now I ask myself, "why not more often?" I'll be back soon....3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMService was especially good.Service was especially good.

They even arranged to get me something that was not on the dinner menu. Very accommodating. The following morning, the Italian guys hustle your blast together and bring it out to you table with a smile, even though they were very busy. We felt happy when we go there because everyone is so cheerful. Thank you for making our stay in Sausalito memorable. We will be back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood restaurant.
