Our server was great, very friendly. However, it must have been very busy because our service was slow.
Other than that, the food was awesome and the ambience was as always beautiful.

We loved the food and our server Marvin was the best very friendly very attentive, but the buser boy literally sat next to me at the end of our date and was trying to flirt in front of my husband. It was very awkward.

Food was mediocre- we were at the restaurant for vday and the seating was awful. Host people did not communicate well - we had to remind them we were waiting to be seated for our 8pm red. Our waiter was very good. Rude guests talking loud to people tables away... very odd vibe.

Both the food and service were outstanding. In fact it was such a great experience we returned the next evening for another dinner instead of trying a different restaurant.

One of the hostess seemed a little confused the whole time we were waiting for our table after we checked in. Could have been due to the large number of guests and reservations. Our waiter was attentive and the food as always was amazing.

Perfect service and lovely diningroom. Northern Italian food. The fish dishes are five star, but the carbonara was disappointing. It lacked flavor and the sauce was a little too thick.

We were there for Valentines day and the place was jammed- as you would expect. That said, food and service were very good. Not our first time there and not our last.

Consistently one of the best Italian restaurants in the North Bay; Poggio never disappoints. Every time we go there we ask ourselves: Why don't we come here more often? Great cocktails although wine list and wines BTG are just OK. All the pastas are house made and come out hot, perfectly prepared and delicious. Apps are exceptional including the Polpettine, Octopus and crispy fresh salads. Wood fired pizza and other items done in the wood fire as well - exceptional! Great, attentive non-fussy service.

We have had two birthday celebrations at Poggio's within the last two months and have enjoyed the delicious food and excellent service. My only concern is the location of the restrooms -- outside the restaurant, accessible only by elevator to the 2nd floor of an adjacent building. I'm disappointed that Poggio's couldn't have found a space within the restaurant for restrooms. For some of its older guests having to trek outside is a burden and could prompt them to make a different restaurant choice. Thank you.

We love Poggio - great, consistently high quality foods. The Family Dinners are a good value. We especially like the gnudi, sformatino, whole fish and the porcini soup. Service can be uneven but our last visit, it was exceptionally good.

My girlfriends and I had an absolutely delightful lunch experience. Our server Claudia not only catered to our whims — goat cheese-stuffed olives for our martinis! — but took great care of us. The food was delicious and comforting. Claudia and supporting team were attentive and we were not rushed. Our lunch paved the way for a great afternoon in Sausalito. And I happily accepted credit for finding the perfect spot! Thank you!

We've been to Poggio quite a few times (travelling from the East Bay). Excellent restaurant and a convenient way for East Bay and SF folks to meet up without dealing with the Bay Bridge or downtown SF. Always interesting choices (my out-of-town guests were however disappointed that the halibut promised on the menu was not available) and a good wine list. Friendly, attentive service (always).
Valet parking has always been a real plus for this restaurant.
Small caveat: the above relates to a Weds evening in January. We have been to Poggio other times (tho I don't think on the weekend) when the crowd and the noise level can be VERY substantial. We were 4 this time but I have taken groups up to 8 in the past and I decided that I would not do that again. With any more than 4 folks around the table you will not be able to hear each other on many nights.

Food was good, but didn’t get bread until the meal came.
We had two birthday celebrants and didn’t get anything - at least ice cream like other restaurants.

The food was really good.

Lovely food in small portions. Two courses per person would be my recommendation. Our server was excellent, allowing us to taste wines before ordering, and delivering our orders accurately and hot. He checked in with us from time to time but never hovered, even when we probably should have been paying rent on our table. Seeing how much we liked the biscotti with our coffee, he delivered a few more. That server is a gem!
