Sausalito's Italian Trattoria
lived in Sausalito for many years and always love coming back
to dine. We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner many times
at Poggio and consider it to be the heart and soul of Sausalito,
as it is friendly, lively and exudes neighborhood charm. It
is a Classic Italian Trattoria with a changing daily menu.
Executive Chef Peter McNee's seasonal menu is "Garden
Driven" featuring herbs and vegetables from their own
organic garden in Sausalito..
started out our recent dinner with a House Specialty Cocktail
which began our meal just right. The Bridgeway Lemonade with
house-made lemonade, vodka, and a splash of ice tea was quite
refreshing. Our favorite appetizer was the Seared Chicken
Livers with polenta which were tender and flavorful. We should
have had a second order as they were wonderful! The homemade
Burrata with sun dried tomato puree and brushetta was also
luscious. Another treat was the Ribollita which is twice cooked
minestrone with white beans, bread and cavolo nero. The Honig
Sauvignon Blanc paired well with our starters.
we enjoyed a pasta course. We loved the Yukon Gold Potato
Gnocchi with rabbit and pancetta sugo. Our main course was
the slowly roasted Porchetta, which came with a side of butter
beans. This Spit roasted stuffed pork with fagioli all'uccelletto
prepared with sustainable raised milk fed pork from Devil's
Gulch Ranch and homemade rosemary sausage stuffing was delicious.
A side of Savory Spinach with lemon was an excellent compliment.
Italian Chianti paired perfectly with our main course. We
saved room for dessert and are glad we did. We loved the Affogato
which is Vanilla Gelato with spectacular candied orange and
almonds drowned in espresso. We thanked restaurateur Larry
Mindel as we left and look forward to coming back to Poggio
