Sausalito's Italian Trattoria

By Dining Detectives

We 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..

We 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.

Next, 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 soon!
