Joe Nugent is a retired grape grower in the Russian River Valley.  Nugent Vineyard sold Pinot Noir grapes to Robert Stemmler Winery, The Donum Estate Winery, and Thumbprint Wine Cellars, Inc. from 2001 until 2012; All of the wines were 100% Nugent Vineyard grapes & many were rated at 90 pts or more by Wine Spectator.


Il Davide has been voted "Best Italian Restaurant in Marin" by Pacific Sun readers and a Marin favorite over 16 years!  Chef David Haydon has created an ambitious menu selection that includes house made pastas, salads, natural meats, sustainable fish and small plates with a contemporary and classic style. We have always supported local farmers and producers. The atmosphere is casual and the nearby parking across the street and next door makes for a  great meeting place for family and friends. See you there!
