Restaurant details
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The only thing that this dingy cafe has going for it is the location.We are certain that people eat there only for the atmosphere,as the place is on the water and features outdoor dining as well as dining in.We dined in, and the counterman who took our order as not friendly at all .He also insisted that we pay up front.Highly unusual.Restaurant was not very busy, yet our meals took 30 minutes to arrive.We ordered a simple spaghetti marinara - what a mistake! Sauce was sour as sour can be, they would have been better off serving us jar sauce from the supermarket.Cost for a small plate of spaghetti was $17.00!We're certain that no locals eat at this place.We have never had Italian food this bad.

Somewhat refined atmosphere, excellent waiter, and surprisingly good pasta dishes. You can come casual or dressed. I'd go back again.

We wandered in here looking for something to eat, but being out of season there wasn't a lot to choose from and judging by the underpaid staff's bored expressions just seemed to sum it up completely. As they were about to shut early that day and were putting any food away, so we opted for some drinks and cookies instead, I suppose being in Sausalito you have to expect to pay a little extra, so for a glass of wine cost $9 and a beer roughly $6 pretty steep i thought even for being out of season, and yes we had two drinks each costing around $30 ouch.! On a slightly positive note the views were pretty good, and in high season it might improve who knows?
It's also a handy place to wait for the ferry back to SF if nothing else...

I ordered a pesto pasta, Im still waiting to find the pesto, the past was not cooked right and it had no salt at all. Soaked in butter, simply tasteless.

We placed our order I water panini an app and a dessert they brought our meal out hut ok dessert when we inquired the guy at the register screamed at us arguing we never ordered it and stated we payed 9 for the panini and app and 7 for a bottle of pellegrino. Just returns from a trip from hora bora where everything is overpriced I paid less than 7 for pellegrino over there so the fact that he claimed that the water was 7 is ridiculous he just didn't want to give us our dessert and rip sniff don't I here for the price and lying deceiving staff and owners Ho down the street and spend your money at the waterside restaurants with some credibility awful awful awful they will ip you off then claim they didn't
