Went to Poggio in Sausalito Friday night with three others. I used to live in Sausalito and it is nice to see such an elegant, classic restaurant in "downtown" Sausalito. They have a good sized bar/waiting area and lots of parking nearby which is a plus. It is not a view restaurant, but in the warm weather they have several doors that open to the sidewalk and tables outside. The menu is very nice Northern Italian cuisine and is not just different types of pasta. The website is below.
We were served some warm, delicious breads. I started with the Crostini of Tuscan Chicken Liver, White Bean with Crispy Prosciutto, Wood-Roasted Eggplant,Polenta, Tomato & Montasio - very tasty, then had some of the Beet, Ricotta and Arugula salad which was quite fresh. My main course was Grilled Lamb Chops with Wood-Roasted Potatoes, Artichokes & Onions. Three good sized chops that were so yummy that I had to pick up the bones and clean them off with my teeth (I know, how gauche). I tasted the grilled swordfish that was also a good sized portion and quite delicious. I split a really wonderful almond cake for dessert and tasted the panna cotta with fruit that was good. The bill, with one bottle of wine, was $50 each which seemed fairly reasonable. The service was mostly attentive, but occasionally our waiter was AWOL. We had a nice evening all in all.
