Before Pastry Chef Robin Kloess came to 2005 Bay Area Rising Star Chris Cosentino’s Dolores Park restaurant, she says she didn’t know much about Italian desserts. But take one bite of her silky pomegranate panna cotta and you won’t believe it. At Incanto, an ode to Italian villa life with welcoming stone walls, large wooden tables, and stunning wall-length photographs of the country’s produce, Kloess is studying up on her Italian sweets, offering a combination of traditional techniques with her own twists. It’s a great finish to Cosentino’s consistently satisfying menu, which includes plenty of offal and toothsome pastas. Save room for both, and expect the total Italian (read: abundant) dining experience.
