Advertised as the Bay Area’s first and only neighborhood “spizzicheria,” Casa Barotti presents itself as a place to socialize, drink, and nibble on Northern Italian snacks. Offering casual counter service, the restaurant specializes in slices of traditional Genovese focaccia and a signature pizza al trancio, a dough that’s a cross between focaccia and Northern Italian pizza crust. Toppings range from anchovy-laden puttanesca to spicy soppressata. There’s also a vegan farinata, a Ligurian chickpea pancake of sorts. Those who dine in can enjoy a true Italian apertivo with free pizza and focaccia bites with each glass of wine or beer.
