Dining

 

Between our intimate interior dining room, with its crackling fire, and the outdoor patio built around a majestic, century old magnolia tree, you’ll find year round options for the perfect meal. Lunch enjoyed al fresco on a warm day offers the promise of people watching, and the soft rustling of leaves. When the sun goes down, and the temperatures dip, warm up inside with a perfectly matched bottle of wine, and a leisurely Italian meal taken near the fireplace, where the smell of wood-fired pizza will whet the appetite, and delight the senses. Experience Poulsbo's only courtyard restaurant, though it may feel a world away.

 
 

The Bar


SOGNO LOUNGE

Upstairs, nearly nestled in the branches of the magnolia tree, you’ll find our full bar and lounge area. Enjoy picturesque views of Poulsbo and Liberty Bay, while sipping handcrafted cocktails from our talented, and top-rated bartenders. The Sogno Lounge offers a low-key, but sociable atmosphere, with a nightly Happy Hour from 4-6 pm.

LIVE MUSIC

The Sogno Lounge often features talented, local musicians on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, who add to the relaxed ambience, rather than overpower it. Visit our Facebook page for the latest information on music sessions.

 
 

The Cellar


Aside from our extensive wine menu, we invite you to discover our carefully curated selection of bottles, on display in the beautiful, brick-lined wine cellar. Inside, you’ll find a diverse array of our favorites from the outstanding Northwest region, California, and Italy. Our wine list has been voted #1 every year since our opening in 2008, so we're confident you'll find plenty to love. Please browse the cellar at your own pace, and when you’ve found the perfect pairing for your meal, we’d be happy to open it for you with no extra corkage fee.  Whether you’re dining with us, returning to your boat, or want a special bottle to bring home for later, we’ll do our best to ensure that you leave with exactly what you need.

Chef Willem Reinders

Since 2010, Sogno di Vino has been proud to call Willem Reinders our Executive Chef. Originally from the Netherlands, Chef Reinders brings decades of experience in world class restaurants to the kitchen of Sogno di Vino. Trained in France, with positions in Paris, London, Belgium, and throughout the Netherlands, Reinders has called the Pacific Northwest home since 1998, when he met his wife Kathy, and settled on Bainbridge Island. Since then, Reinders has worked in such kitchens as Seattle's Sorrento Hotel, the Wing Point Golf and Country Club, and the late Four Swallows Restaurant. Chef Reinders believes that great food begins at the source, with the freshest, most local ingredients, prepared with passion and care. He greatly values the close relationships he's formed over the years with local purveyors, such as Painted Hills Beef, Full Tilth Farms, Persephone Farm, Mount Townsend Creamery, Carlton Farms, and many, many more. But don't just take his word for it, come in and experience the difference for yourself. 


 

Owners, Angela & Rob Scott

With over 25 years experience owning and operating restaurants throughout Southern California, Angela dreamed of continuing her passion for great wine and Italian food when she and husband Rob relocated to the Northwest nearly a decade ago. They immediately fell in love with the inviting, and rustic feel of the space, and the historic charm of downtown Poulsbo. Rob's experience as a yacht captain makes a boating town like Poulsbo a perfect fit. Together, they are living their dreams, and helping to bring first-class cuisine to this vibrant community and its visitors.
