Loved eating a really good personal pizza here with old friends and family! The staff was so nice and friendly and helpful and the food came right on time, no long wait.

Despite having a reservation, we were keep waiting >20 min to be seated. The assigned table was next to a side door which the staff kept propping open to serve the outside seating area and it was a cold evening. The service was slow and inattentive (we had to ask for the bread, appetizers arrived before the drinks were served etc.) and the food was mediocre at best. For such a popular restaurant, we were very disappointed.

Poggio is always a special stop but try to get there at least once during their truffle festival (November) to be transported to Italy, at least in the culinary senses. Service is very thoughtful and every course is a hit.

We went to Poggio the day after we got married and had the most wonderful time. Everything from being greeted by the hilarious Italian bartender and considerate hostess, to our wonderfully attentive waiter, Liver, made us feel special. The manager even sent over champagne and dessert to help us celebrate in style. Overall, a very special evening.

Sadly we were disappointed. We have had yummy hearty italian meals at Poggio but the pizza, which we were told by the server should have been crispy and thin crust ended up being thick and doughy and the cheese and toppings almost inedible. The seasonal fuyu persimmon and buffalo mozzarella salad was tasty but again lacking somehow in preparation. The Buffalo mozzarella is delicious on just about anything. But the Persimmons were distributed carelessly and I did not feel that any love or Elegance went into this dish at all. It is rare that I ever give a bad review. But this just was so unappetizing.

Nice atmosphere. Husband and I shared the carpaccio tuna appetizer and the beet salad. Both were delicious and we would recommend them. We had two different fish dishes and both were tasty and done to perfection. The lemon mousse was to die for!

We have dined at Poggio many times and often choose it for special evenings out with friends. It's one of the few stand-outs in an otherwise rather bleak dining scene in Marin. AND, if you choose one of the booths in the back, it's even quiet enough for an intimate conversation. The staff is expert, welcoming, and non-intrusive. The food is authentic rustic northern Italian. Although the menu changes with seasonal ingredients, look for one of the autumn/winter offerings: pappardelle with wild boar ragout. You will think that you are at the table of the best hidden restaurant in Tuscany.

The food is delicious and special. Service is very nice. We went for our anniversary and they gave us a dessert and were very celebratory. It is expensive, definitely special occasion for us. It would be very nice if they had a bathroom in the restaurant as opposed to having to go upstairs in the hotel.

There are authentic Italian dishes comparable to being in Italy with a combination of local and specialized ingredients. The pasta dishes come in 2 sizes which is nice for smaller appetites and for those who like to eat in the traditional Italian manner with a pasta dish preceding the main meal. There seem to be quieter areas near the windows and more lively areas in the interior offering both choices. The service was very fine with a nice mix of quiet professionalism with just a few chatty comments. It is technically part of the Casa Madrona Hotel but totally separate and not like typical hotel restaurants, that is to say, it is a stand alone restaurant favored by locals as well as tourists.

Went for the Tuesday night prix-fixe menu. The meatloaf was incredible - soooo satisfying. My husband, who never eats meatloaf, actually enjoyed this one. He said, "if all meatloaves could be this good, I would make a habit of eating them."

The food was quite average, absolutely nothing special. The service was marginal, the waitress was nice enough, but very inexperienced, kind of got in our face a little, e.g. made a long list of recommendations (didn't ask for it), kept wanting to take plates/glasses away when not quite done, etc.

Poggio, when it is on its game, is the best food in Sausalito. Sunday night, the restaurant was rocking and the food was stellar. We had roasted cauliflower with a Calbrian hot sauce, the flavors and textures were spot on. The chicken was juicy and cooked to perfection. My husband's ragu pasta was perfect. We also ordered a side of olive oil mashed potatoes, who needs butter? They were maybe the best mashed potatoes I have ever had (don't tell my mom).
I love the room, open, lively, and elegant. The location,across from the Sausalito Yacht Harbor is hard to beat. What is not to like about Poggio? Sure, it costs more than most places in Sausalito..but every now and then it is good to treat ourselves.

My wife and I visited for an anniversary dinner. The menu was full of things we wanted to try. We settled on an appetizer, soup, salad, 2 main pasta dishes, vegetables, and dessert. We didn’t finish all the food but really enjoyed the variety of food. The service was great and we liked the restaurant a lot. We are hoping to visit again soon!
