“Delicious Calamari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

I had the sweet potato ravioli and it was a bit too sweet for me but otherwise tasty. Their calamari is quite delicious - my favorite in the Marin area. Their food doesn't disappoint.

“Good for business lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Recently was treated to a business lunch at Il Davide and found both the service and food outstanding. The small room at the back of the main dining room was perfect for our group of 15 to dine and meet. Service was attentive but not disruptive as we talked. We had a pre-arrranged menu, with options that was suitable for all our tastes. I was also pleased to see that they now have another banquet room for larger meeting/group spaces. Food is so outstanding that it is a great place for lunch!

“Delicious surprise!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Four of us fell into the restaurant just by chance.... We LOVED it! Such a delicious surprise! It started with a special glass of prosecco and ended with "crazy delicious" butterscotch dessert... Thank you Il Davide!

“Awesome lunch special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

They've revamped the menu and their lunch special is a bargain. The food is delicious and the service is always good. I work nearby and this place is a favorite of my boss too.
