Delarosa Restaurant Review

: At Delarosa, a stylish and hip restaurant from the same people responsible for San Francisco’s Beretta, a table for two can only be found at a table that actually seats approximately 20. The entire restaurant is outfitted with communal dining tables, but low stools allow some distance from strangers. This format suits the restaurant well since so much of its menu --- from fava bean bruschetta to kale Caesar salad to fritto misto di pesce --- is best shared. The wood-fired pizzas can be hit or miss. Picks such as the fennel sausage, tomato and scamorza cheese are nicely balanced, but the hot salami with coppa is a touch too heavy with the meat. For dessert, sweet coppas dominate the menu, layered gelato concoctions similar to parfaits. The coppa mela, for instance, layers apple pie, crème anglaise and spiced caramel sauce with vanilla gelato, crowned with an optional splash of bourbon. An impressive beer menu offers brews from all over the world.
