Beretta Restaurant Review

: Sleek and modern with dark wood, clean lines and vintage chandeliers, this sophisticated cocktail and pizza enclave attracts a hip crowd. The artisanal drink program crafted by local celeb mixologist Thad Vogler (Slanted Door, Bourbon & Branch, Jardinière) features big, fresh flavors, such as the Airmail---a large mint leaf rafted atop a foamy balance of rum, honey, lime and Prosecco. Italian small plates and pizzas are served nightly until 1 a.m., intensifying the draw for lively Mission mingling. Seasonal, two-to-three-bite plates lean toward Roman flavors and preparations---peppery, strong, mostly unrefined, including a good bruschetta and tangy eggplant caponatina. The restaurant should be called “burrata” for the cheese’s many appearances, and it steals the show most notably on the pizza margherita where we would like to taste a bit more sauce and flavor. Pizza in general may not actually be the restaurant's strongest suit, as crusts frequently appear semi-soft and under-crisped. Service can seem a bit overwrought given the large and lively crowds, but no matter: best to secure a spot at the long communal table near the bar, watch the action and make new friends during the wait for shared nibbles.
