spotted sf: barzotto.
Hello – Leslie from Spotted SF here. Allow me to introduce you to the newest dining spot in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood: Barzotto. Brought to you by Mark Sotto, veteran restaurant operator, and Michelle Minori, Executive Sous Chef of Thomas McNaughton’s Ne Timeas restaurant group (Flour Water, Salumeria, Aatxe), Barzotto introduces fresh and affordable housemade pasta dishes, California and Italian wines and seasonal soft-serve gelatos.
The daily menu at Barzotto will feature five hearty bowls of pasta all made within view of guests. Expect two classics and three other varieties incorporating fresh and local ingredients available each season. A good ol’ classic to try is the Cacio e Pepe with pecorino, parmesan and black pepper — then add a farm egg. Wines are $10 by the glass and $40 by the bottle. And soft serve gelato will have seasonal toppings, like strawberries & biscotti, salted caramel & dark chocolate, as well as a nitro coffee affogato with mint.
Be sure to scope out the beautiful interior and tiling when you’re there. The bathroom even. Also dried and fresh pasta, sauces and gelato are available for purchase at the front counter. Barzotto is currently open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM and will soon be open seven days a week. Walk-ins only so get there quick!
