inspiring interior design at barzotto / sfgirlbybay

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 Marko Sotto, veteran restaurant operator, and Michelle Minori, former 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.
