Poggio is a classic Italian trattoria with comfortable neighborhood charm and destination-caliber cuisine. Created by Larry Mindel, who also founded numerous other restaurants in the Bay Area and beyond, Poggio has been ranked among the very best Italian restaurants since it opened. Led by Executive Chef and Partner Ben Balesteri, Poggio’s daily changing menus use the best available local ingredients including dishes inspired by the seasonal bounty of our local farmers, ranchers and fishermen and the traditional methods of Italy, including wood-fired ovens, house made pastas from scratch and a wide variety of dishes serving guests breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We’re honored to have been awarded a Bib Gourmand distinction by the Michelin guide in 2017, 2018, and along with being named Best Italian restaurant in Marin County by Marin Magazine in 2021.

    One of our most cherished places for both lunch and dinner. The menu has a wide selection and each item we have had is always perfect! The cauliflower custard (sformatino) and creme brulee are 5 star!! If you like shrimp and pasta we really enjoy the tagliatelle and the wine cream sauce. Service is always 5 star and makes this restaurant a must visit when you are in Sausalito.

    Food was excellent! We enjoyed the Tartare, Gnudi and Pesce. We had no room for dessert, but the choices sounded scrumptious. The waitstaff were friendly and professional. We sat outside on a chilly night, but were very comfortable under the heat lamps. We will definitely return to try other dishes.

    We were there for a birthday. I’ve been there many times, and usually love it. This time one of us ordered fish (Sole, Petrale). She didn’t care for it. I ordered pasta, pappardelle with pork and veal. I didn’t care for it. The meat was like from a stew - overcooked and a bit tough. The “sauce” was watery and didn’t add to the dish. On the bright side, my cousin ordered a pizza and it was very good, as was the chocolate dessert with vanilla ice cream was excellent. I’ll go back. Just disappointed.

    Another perfect evening at Poggio. Six of us shared seven apps which were all delicious. The mains were excellent but the crab pasta should have had a little more crab. We were demanding and our waiter was great. We brought three special wines and they managed to get glasses for all of us. Took some effort since they were crowded.

    I have to say, as somebody who loves a good dinner, this has to be one of my new favorite places to eat in Sausalito! Not only was the food amazing but the service was even better. Sad to say i don’t remember our server’s name but he was incredible. He was recommending the best dishes and cocktails the entire time we were there. Beautiful atmosphere. Can’t wait to come back again

    Food was good. Apps were small and expensive. Meatballs $15 for 3 the size of a golf ball is crazy. Same size with the Arancini. Good flavor but come on man. Dinners were good. Carbonara was made correctly but needed some salt. Gnudi was excellent. Shrimp & tagliatelle was decent. Pappardelle was stuck together but flavor was good. Affogato was good. Overall pretty good.

    We had been so looking forward to eating at Poggio and decided to celebrate the new year with a special dinner. So sad to report that our dining experience was super disappointing. To put it mindly, the service was embarrassing and I would not feel comfortable ever recommending or bringing family and friends here. There was really too many oddities to enumerate, but here are a few hihglights - it started with not being welcomed by anyone and having to search the restaurant for someone - one person in our party walked into the restaurant to try to find someone and was chastised by a rude wait staff on her phone; as it turns out the Maître d' was hanging out in a booth lounging rather than welcoming guests as we waited confused and soaking wet before she finally decided to get up; a couple items in our order never arrived so we finally elected to cancel them; the food itself was drenched in oil and butter and way too greasy to eat; and there were multiple attempts by confused wait staff to bring erroneous items to our table. This was not high quality dining experience that we had been so looking forward to and instead an embarassing amateur hour with a hefty and undeserved price tag. Save yourself the heartache and eat elsewhere for your special meals.

    Possibly the best restaurant in Marin county. Excellent Italian food. The waitress and four errors on our order; didn't seem like she was all there. She made it up by gifting me the little gems salad she put in instead of what I ordered, and it was one of the best Ceasar-style salads I have had. The food was five stars. Pappardelle with duck was terrific, and the Vitello was also outstanding, although I prefer this dish with a little more sauce.

    We love Poggio and eat there usually a couple of times a month. Last night's dinner was as delicious as usual. We opted to eat outside and although there were very few other diners in the outside area, we never felt abandoned by our server, who checked on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. As usual, the mushroom soup was simply fabulous. We also shared the scallops and beet antipasti and and the sole. Excellent food, as always!
