Piccolo Teatro has made a lot of effort to transform the old Patterson's Bar in Sausalito into a glittery and warm Italian delight.
The lunch menu had charming small bites available, and we chose to start with the Cypress Grove, Truffle Tremor Goats Milk Cheese offering, which also included thin and crisp bread, roasted hazelnuts some jam and part of a honeycomb. Small and flavorful bites indeed!
I felt like something light so I chose to just have some soup as a main course. The Venetian Arborio Rice Soup with Porcini Mushroom and Pancetta just fit the bill. It had a flourish of basil and feathery topping of Parmesan. I enjoyed it.
Dad wanted something a tad more hearty, so ordered the Meatballs Braised in Roasted Tomato, Basil over Ricotta Gnocchi. He said it was a very tasty balance and just 'hit the spot'. Overall Piccolo Teatro was a delightful experience from start to finish, and our waiter was quite friendly, knowledgeable and helpful as well. It's a great addition to Sausalito choices.
