The energy level of this very busy Mission District Italian restaurant is lifted by its excellent bar. Beretta serves inventive cocktails, thin crust pizzas, and contemporary Italian comfort food. And then there are its craft drinks, which lift everybody’s spirits. The ingredients are fresh, in season, locally sourced, and organic whenever possible. Tuesday is cioppino night, when Beretta offers the traditional Mediterranean seafood stew, but the line is almost always out the door after dark. So wait at the bar and order one of their diverse, world-class cocktails!
