Have been to Poggio before and the food was so delicious. This time the food was disappointing. Cauliflower appetizer was undercooked and lacked seasoning. Carbonara was ok but lacked flavor, halibut was good. Dishes did not sing. Love the ambiance and service, but not going back soon.
Excellent interesting inventive Italian cuisine served by lovely responsive wait staff.
Yummy and delicious!!!
Always wonderful. Terrific food, friendly service, good wine list. It is one of my very favorite places.
We never actually got to try the food at Poggio. Weeks before I had made a reservation for 2 people at 6 PM on Sunday, October 14th. It was all part of a very special 83rd birthday gift for a dear friend. I bought orchestra seats for SF Opera's Tosca (which cost close to $400). The performance was magnificent and we were anticipating a delightful meal at a restaurant both of us have wanted to try for years. We arrived exactly at 6:00 PM. We requested a booth but were told that we would have to wait until 8:00 PM for one. The hostess indicated that there were banquettes. Not being familiar with the restaurant, we agreed to a banquette. However, we were shown to a corner space that would have been very awkward for carrying on a conversation. It was near the hostess reception table and one of us would have been sitting at a very odd angle at a rather small table. When we requested a change, we were relocated to an even worse banquette location toward the back of the restaurant, directly across from a door to the outside that created a draft when opened and closed. We noticed that there was an unoccupied two-person table available near us. I started back to the hostess table to ask for that table but was disappointed to see that a couple who had arrived after us was seated there. It became pretty obvious that there was zero interest in finding us a table that was out of the draft, out of the aisle where the servers moved back and forth and comfortable enough for two people to carry on a conversation. We finally told the wait staff that we were leaving because we were not happy with the seating offered. Happily, after some searching, we did eventually find a restaurant that had space for us - Jason's in Greenbrae. We enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service, thus ending our celebratory day on a high note.
Excellent dinner. The beet salad with crispy shallots was great and the halibut entree was delicious! Delighted with our meal and service
Amazing menu and wine list, we’ll executed with rich flavors, and appropriate portions, service was attentive and knowledgeable, not invasive, reasonably priced.
Poggio is a classic in our book! Great food- all homemade pasta! Great wine list! Nice atmosphere with great outdoor seating!
We love Poggio. A top favorite in Marin. Food and service always consistently good.
I was stunned to see Bluefin Tuna on the Poggio menu. Regardless of how it is caught and whether it is legal, it is a critically endangered species, and I would expect a restaurant like Poggio to respect that status and keep it off the menu. Very disappointing.
its population has suffered a severe decline after decades of overfishing and mismanagement. Today, its population is a little more than half of what is was in 1974, when it was already depleted, and experts expect international quotas agreed to last year by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) to bring further decline. Even under the best management, the stock would have a difficult time recovering, in part because bluefin are slow to grow and reproduce. When they are fished relentlessly, recovery is nearly impossible.
This is one of our favorite restaurants, but tonight the service was off. The server was obviously stressed and quite rude when speaking to us. The manager was too busy chatting with other employees to do any actual work. She came by to talk to us, leaving dirty plates as she walked away. I never got a chance to order another glass of wine because no one came to check on us during the meal. Really a shame because the food was delicious as always. Bad service and lazy management overshadow good food, however.
Fabulous as always!! I always feel like I'm on holiday when I go to Poggio ... Europe somewhere near the mediterranean!
Excellent pork chop, fantastic waitress Adrienne - we had a wonderful evening!
Had halibut and it was below average. Service was great mini strobe was great. I prefer my own grilled cauliflower
Always enjoy a meal at Poggio. Love the setting too.
We had a very nice evening at Poggio last Saturday nite. We sat outside on the street side patio and the weather cooperated perfectly-the heat lamps never had to be turned on. Lots of action on the streets of Sausalito, in fact, one of the drawbacks to the evening was the repeated dealing with car headlights shining in our eyes as cars drove by on Bridgeway. Our server did a very good job even though she was extremely busy and at times was not able to get to us in as timely a fashion as was necessary. We were not in any hurry so it was ok, but in some instances it could have presented a problem. She was apologetic and made up for it by being very friendly and accommodating throughout the evening. The food was delicious! Everything from our prosciutto and fig app to our salad featuring endive, apples, hazelnuts,cheese and balsamic to our pastas( a fabulous spinach gnudi with ragu and pappardelle with a beef ragu)were outstanding - reminding us of some meals we've shared in Italy.
The wine list offers an above average selection of Italian wine selections but could use some attention when it comes to the wines of California. Too many exciting things happening that would pair beautifully with the cuisine not to be included.
A very enjoyable evening. No wonder Poggio is on Michael Bauer's Top 100 list again this year.
Great food, service is a bit spotty. Bar drinks awesome and one of the few places with Negroni's "on tap".
Our server Debi was wonderful! Always friendly and helpful. This is our favorite restaurant and our favorite server in Sausalito. We are Sausalito residents and always enjoy dining here!
We had a group of five friends from various parts of the Bay Area who were meeting for lunch. The food and service were just fine (with the except of a chicken sandwich--stick to the Italian fare.) No one called me to say that there was an event at the hotel and that valet parking would not be available for restaurant patrons, so we all had to hustle around Sausalito on a Sunday afternoon to find parking spots. That was an unexpected negative which could have been avoided.
Tremendously improved service. Best service in years!
never had a disappointing meal eating here for years.
Never disappoints. Authentic Italian. Grilled Polpo, Porcini Custard, lovely pasta dishes.
This restaurant is always wonderful. I recommend it highly.
Our server, ARMANDO, is simply SUPERB! We always request him as our server. He is MOST POLITE and extremely attentive.
We love Poggio! The food is excellent! The atmosphere is perfect for dining and the attention of a server like Armando make dining at Poggio a VERY PLEASANT experience.
I've always loved coming to this warm and inviting place since 2008- 10 years later it deserves a review!
It's an upscale dining experience but with a casual, neighborhood vibe as well. All of the appetizers are inventive, interesting and fresh. All of the meats are delish, wine list good, ambiance spectacular both inside and out. Pizza is always a great casual choice at any time! Service is exemplary both at night and morning breakfast too.
Beautiful restaurant with equally beautifully prepared food. Lovely salads big enough to share. We each had pasta: the mezzaluna and the bucatini carbonara...yum. We shared the lemon mousse, light and spot on. Valeria provided the perfect service. We'll definitely be back!
Like most places, Poggio has certain dishes that are amazing and some that are disappointing. The restaurant itself is charming, but be prepared to speak loudly in order to be heard. It is not a quiet place. If you are sensitive to cold, ask for a seat away from the open windows in the front.
Delicious traditional Italian food!! I will come back!!
This is one of the nicest restaurants in Marin. I love the large selection of choices on the menu and the food and service is usually quite good.
We have been regulars at Poggio for years and have usually had a good experience. This visit and the one before, both on Saturday evenings were quite poor. The service was very bad and not attentive. Salads were brought before our appetizers were finished. Water was not replenished until asked for. Pastas have also been going downhill of late. There is too much pasta for the amount of sauce and the result is a gummy mess. On this visit they were brought to the table cold as was the coffee after dinner. Appetizers remain very good as do salads. The menu used to offer changes by season, now it is always the same with only minor changes. I remember a heavenly tortellini stuffed with chicken livers which I haven't seen in a long time. I hope this was only a temporary failure. Perhaps Saturday nights should be avoided.
Traveling in California. Tourism/vacation.
Food was excellent. Restaurant ambiance is perfect for intimate dinner or group gathering.
Deborah our server was great and Tony made my husband’s birthday so special!
The service was a bit slow. I brought a group of seven friends some of whom had never been there.. We waited quite awhile for our drink orders to be taken but then things moved smoothly. My tuna was very dry.
Food that we ordered were mushroom pizza, carbonara and risotto with seafood. It was good, but was bit salty. Atmosphere was good. Vallet parking can be available if you park in front of the hotel which is the same building with the restaurant.
Wonderful service, outstanding food, quiet surroundings, overall enjoyable experience. We’ll be back.
Great place, great food, great service, great room--we go there quite a lot!
Wonderful place with a wide variety of choices with fresh local ingredients. Lovely time.. will be back. They also have valet parking in Sausalito.. a definite plus!
Poggio's food is fantastic and the staff is so friendly. We love the quality and the wonderful atmosphere.
They have good food and helpful and friendly staff. Good for special occasions.
