I especially love the pappardelle with wild mushrooms, but I think you'll be happy with whatever you order.

Il Davide is a singular winner in San Rafael,CA for fresh, well prepared Italian cuisine. Over the years their pastas list has grown and exceeded expectations, as has the rest of their menu. Given the time David will even make special dihes no longer on the menu. Good staff, great food. Diane & Bob

I eat here a few times a month. I am not a pasta eater, but the pasta eaters I know think it's good. But I can always get a nice piece of interesting fish with sautéed veggies, a lamb salad, scampi with veggies. They are good about substituting veggies for their very good potato dish, too.

The restaurant is wonderful, and the people who work there reaaly care about the service that they give. Many times we have been there and even though we did not have a reservation we did not have to wait long. Of course weekends are different. Neither my wife nor I have ever had a bad meal there, I would rate... More

My fiance and I frequent Il Davide since we moved to San Rafael last year. Great food, service and wine in a relaxed yet sometimes upbeat atmosphere is the reason why we keep coming back. Its hard to beat Il Davide in the surrounding area. Must trys: Scallop appetizer, Burrata, Torte di Porro, Angus filet, Orrechette Davide Happy dining!

By far one of my favorite restaurants in San Rafael. Great food, great staff, good wine... The lay of the land is hard to navigate, but the food brings me back every time!
