Founded in 1995, Il Davide emerged as one of Marin County’s leading Italian restaurants. Today it continues to generate wide appeal with time honored as well as brand new customers.
Owner David Haydon was born and raised in Marin County. After working and training in various other Marin restaurants, David opened Il Davide, determined to do something different from the classic Toscano style restaurants he was surrounded by. He sourced locally, creating a unique, flavor-filled menu which he served unpretentiously with his famous personal service. Still today, on a busy Friday or Saturday night, there is David talking to customers, pouring port, helping seat or even bussing a table – whatever it takes to ensure his customers are well taken care of!
