For over 16 years, Poggio Trattoria has been a Marin landmark for Italian cuisine and sophisticated ambiance. Located in Downtown Sausalito under the Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa, the restaurant has earned a variety of awards and accolades. Poggio Trattoria’s elegant dishes and exceptional service have been recognized as a recipient of the prestigious Bib Gourmand, Michelin International’s list of outstanding, yet affordable restaurants—an honor bestowed upon the restaurant in both 2017 and 2018.

Chef Ben Balesteri has created a menu of dishes that perfectly combine traditional Italian cuisine with locally-sourced California ingredients. 

In light of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and state and local regulations, Poggio Trattoria has adjusted course by temporarily suspending their lunch service and adding seafood freshly caught out in the Bay by Chef Balesteri, which are now offered as daily specials.

Order online for delivery options and choose from the menu’s selection of beautifully-made appetizers, pizza, pasta, and seafood. While you can’t go wrong no matter what you choose, notable dishes include the tuna tartare, tagliatelle with rock shrimp, white wine, cream, tomato, and seasonings, and the local salmon dinner for two featuring local king salmon, braised butter beans, castelvetrano olives, and chocolate budino with berries. Vegan and gluten-free options are also available. Pair your meal with one of the wine-by-the-bottle offerings or choose from their selection of beer!

The Trident

With Bay Area roots dating back to the 1960s and housed in a historical building originally built for the San Francisco Yacht Club, The Trident is a true Bay Area landmark. In 1898, the San Francisco Yacht Club was the place to be in the Sausalito social scene. The Club hosted yacht races, regattas, and gala parties. 

After 1927, the building underwent a range of different identities and owners. In the 1960s, The Trident, a musical entertainment venue, was born. Today, The Trident continues the tradition as the place to be for locals while offering local, organic, and sustainably-produced American cuisine. 

The Trident is a favorite as both a brunch and dinner spot. Enjoy oysters by the half-dozen or Baked Oysters Trident served with fresh spinach, chipotle Tabasco, Pernod, shallots, garlic, asiago, and herbs. Looking for something different? Try their petaluma chicken, vegan linguine puttanesca, or The Trident Cioppino, a classic seafood stew with fresh fish, Dungeness crab legs, shrimp, calamari, mussels, clams, and vegetables. 

Any meal at The Trident isn’t complete without something sweet! Just try to resist their apple pie à la mode with spiced rum caramel sauce and vanilla gelato or their flourless lava cake composed of dark chocolate ganache, roasted strawberries, and gelato.

Lappert’s Ice Cream

First launched in Sausalito in 1983, Lappert’s Ice Cream has served its world-renowned ice cream for decades. Although Lappert’s also offers coffee, specialty drinks, and breakfast pastries, their high butterfat content and uniquely-flavored ice cream has built a far-reaching reputation for this family-owned business. 

Lappert’s founder, Walter Lappert, established his first shop in the Bay Area, as well as a factory, in Hanapepe, Kauai to produce and sell his ice cream. Today, the influences of Lappert’s origins in Northern California and Hawaii can still be tasted in their tropical flavors, such as Kona coffee, caramel coconut macadamia nut, and ube macapuno.
