Tomás Berreta Gandolfo (November 22 of 1875 – August 2 of 1947) was the President of Uruguay for five months in 1947.
He later served in the government of President Juan José de Amézaga.
Berreta was thus a prominent, elderly member of the Uruguayan Colorado Party which had ruled the country for long periods, when he stood for election as President, with a view to succeeding the sitting President of Uruguay, Juan José de Amézaga, who was younger than he by several years.
