Superb, attentive service. The fungi ravioli is best with a good red wine. They have a good wine list. Also, like the beet salad. Golden beet slices on the base with red chunky beat on top with walnuts and feta cheese. Delicious!

Finding a place to get four couples together for a casual reunion can often be difficult. This place handles the traffic of different types of customers. The small bar is great for a few drinks, tv and talking with the seating area cozy and comfortable. The food is always fresh and great. Try the specials as they constantly change and... More

When I want really good Italian Food I head for Il Davide. They have been around for many years and the place is always crowed. And for good reason. Excellent pastas, salads and the entrees are superb. It's best to make a reservation. The service is always good, welcoming and friendly. Enjoy!

Best Italian food in San Rafael and probably all of Marin County. Nothing bad to say, great food, excellent service, interesting wine list and convenient to parking. If you're in San Rafael and you're hungry go to I'll Davide.

I eat at here at least once a week. The food is divine not only in its presentation but its flavor is absolutely wonderful. I have never been disappointed. I especially love the duo ravioli. I am also comfortable dining solo, siting at the bar and talking with the 'regulars'. The servers always come over to say hello to me.... More

Yummy pasta dishes.....porcini tortellinis, smoked chicken or wild boar raviolis. Work nearby and can always count on a satisfied lunch or light dinner. Although a regular, staff is friendly and provide great service. Lunch specials include either a salad or soup.

Nice restaurant close to downtown. Really like there gnocchi in Pesto. Wild boar ravioli was tasty. Only reason for minus 1 star is price is a bit on the high side for such small portions. Fill the plate/bowl all the way up! They were a little skimpy with there 1/2 filled bowl of soup and pasta. Really good tasting food... More
