Poggio Ratings and Reviews
I had a crab and ravioli dish wich was to die for, and my dining partner had a pizza that was pretty standard fare. The waiter mistakenly brought us calamari instead of capaccio, but was gracious when we made the correction, and brought our delicious replacement!
Every time we visit the bay area we make it a point to dine at Poggio. The food is reasonably priced and of excellent quality (everything tastes truly homemade - as if you're dining in the house of an authentic Italian family) and the service is unobtrusive, professional, attentive without being annoying. Poggio is a mainstay in our restaurants of choice.
We arrived early before our reservation. We were seated right away and the service was very good. We loved the choices on the menu but could not eat everything we ordered. The wine list was also very good. We had received this as a gift certificate and will definitely return.
What a wonderful restaurant! Been there about a dozen times and I can't say enough good things about it. Can't believe it's in Marin. The food just gets better and better, the service is worthy of a Danny Meyer restaurant, and the space is beautiful. Looking forward to the next time -- maybe one of your bollito misto nights?
We made reservations for Poggio's well in advance but when we arrived we were seated next to the kitchen; noise was loud enough that we had to yell to talk and the activity of the servers collecting orders was distracting. Our server was unfriendly, unfocused,and not physically present for most of service. One time while asking him a question about the menu he just walked away without notice. We ordered 3 apps, 4 entress, 2 sides, and 3 deserts. The apps were tasteless and the tripe dish in particular was overcooked and mushy. The entrees, veal in particular, were really just rolls of fat with a few flecks of meat. The sides were drenched in butter and oil. The deserts were all different themes on cream. Rich food, $$$$, poor value.
Went for lunch on a Saturday as a party of 4. Our request for a larer booth than originally offered was accomodated, starters/first courses were consistantly outstanding, mains were good and very good, deserts got 2 good ratings and 2 outstanding. They were out of our 1st choice wine but the second choice was very good and well priced. Ambiance was comfortable, leaning towards fancy but not pretentious. Was my second time there and will continue to recommend it to friends.
Poggio has consistently provided a reliably good meal. Sometimes it was even very good. In perhaps a dozen visits since the restaurant opened we have usually left satisfied with the experience. We typically eat out several times a week, particularly like Italian cuisine, and usually have a bottle of wine. There is a lot of good Italian restaurants in this area, so what would it take for us to become regulars at Poggio? Add a few bottles to the wine list at a lower price point, say less than $20 for a non-domestic red. Free corkage would be another draw.
It was OK. We don't go here often because, while the menu seems interesting, there never seems to be anything that really grabs us. We ate early and it was thinly populated, with lots of wait-staff milling around. Nevertheless, we had to ask for service which seemed very rushed, despite the lack of other patrons. Once we got the initial service, it improved, until we wanted our bill. Never saw the waiter again and had to ask a busboy for our bill. The food was fine; nothing special. The atmosphere was very holiday festive.
We have been to Poggio before, usually sitting outside, where it was a pleasant way to have our son's well-behaved little dog present under his chair. This time we had his 9-month old baby with us, and Poggio made it easy. The service was outstanding and we loved the food. Pleasant and friendly ambiance. We love this place. The menu, in my opinion, could be made more easily understood.
Service was really terrible here. The food was decent, but our waiter was so atrocious and rude that it ruined the experience. We were all quite stunned b/c you get accustomed to decent service in the Bay Area. The waiter threw the menus at us and spilled some wine on my mother and never apologized. He just acted like he had a terrible day and was taking it out on his customers. We will never go back.
The meal was excellent. My dining companions had never been to Poggio and were impressed with the ambience, the menu items and the overall experience. The service was good but the waiter was a bit distracted so I did not rate it higher. Everything worked out and we had a lovely dinner. We could hear each other talk even though the restaurant was very busy on a holiday Friday night.
Suberb food, as always, and an excellent selection of wine...particularly well paired with the seasonal menu. I asked for a booth, for my friend and myself. "I'll check" was the response. We were seated at a table, with uncomfortable chairs, directly across from an empty booth, which remained empty all nite. Why?? An untrained, and unresponsive hostess last Sunday. But, as always, I go to Poggio for the suberb meal, and am never disappointed.
Very busy on Thanksgiving Night. Elegant dining room and very warm and attentive service. There was a 3 course Thanksgiving menu available but instead we opted for their regular menu. Enjoyed the roasted chicken very much but not much in the way of side veggies. My margherita pizza was a bit burned and the sauce was pretty salty. Salads and complementary warm rolls were great though and we capped things off with a pear tart. Overall a very nice meal!
