Relatively inexpensive, fun eats in the Mission - Lolo or Specchio?

Doing dinner with friends and we're trying to figure out a fun spot in the Mission that's not too pricey and that we haven't been to before...Have resos at both Lolo and Specchio...Anyone have a vote as to which is the better choice? Thanks!

    We found Lolo to be pretty boring. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't exactly good either. Seems to be the case a lot around these parts.

    We've never been to Specchio.

      OK, here's what's funny: the owner of Specchio is the brother-in-law of one of the owners of Lolo. Go to Specchio....

        chaddict - What a small little city we're in, that is funny! Thanks for the vote!

        sk4sk4 - I love Beretta too! Just want to try somewhere we haven't been. Thanks for responding!

        haven't eaten at either of those, but my go-to spot in the mission is Beretta. great drinks, neopolitan pizzas, and risotto.
