DTM Top 30 in 30 Day 16- David Haydon- Il Davide Cucina Italia

We love Il Davide. Good food, good service, good times. David Haydon’s 30+ years’ experience with attention to detail as a chef and restaurant owner is evident everywhere. Alina and I have been regulars since we first met and I have been coming here for 20 years. David makes us feel as if we are honored guests in his own home. We highly recommend the Specials and have never been disappointed. Our menu favorites are many but we always try to save room for dessert and a glass of Porto to cap off the intimate setting. The fresh Berry Cobbler with a scoop of vanilla gelato is awesome! We highly recommend making reservations as they are quite popular with the locals. Best is to call 415.454.8080 or go online to the website and use their reservation system powered by OpenTable. David also has a great intimate Private Room great for receptions and gatherings of up to 50 people.

Our recommendations:

Italian Red Wine Flight

Rombauer Chardonnay


Cream of Mushroom or Split Pea Soups (when available)


Brussel Sprout Salad (when available)

Orecchiette alla Davide
