What a week for openings: With Frances and Baker & Banker splitting the serious foodie crowd tonight, Beretta spinoff Delarosa got in early with a quiet debut in the Marina on Saturday. The simple, Italian menu recalls Beretta as chef Ruggero Gadaldi heads both kitchens. Complicated cocktails fuel appetites for the swath of antipasti, fritti, and pizza as well as a small collection of mains, sandwiches, and pasta. Open for lunch through late-night, this place will fit right in in the Marina, where folks who want to drop in for a drink and a bite can do so without reservations, and those with a jones for Roman-style pizza now have an alternative to A16.
