While we waited for our za, a guy comes in with three empty salad dressing bottles. He can't remember if he was returning them to recycle or refilling then. He steps aside to call his bride and comes back and says they are to be refilled. I'm thinking this salad dressing just might be something special? So, I get some.... More

Mostly serves pizzas, about 10 varieties. In my opinion is always about the dough and sauce with the extra toppings a bonus. This one has it right. A few appetizers, four salads and a daily special or two. Wine and beer. Went on a Saturday to meet friends at 630. No reservations and line out the door. Took about 40... More

I attended a demonstration of a supposedly italian recipe of grilled asparagus Chef Craig Stoll who works at Pizzeria Delfina (who in this biography is devoted to authenticity among other things). Why but why did he keep taking about italian cuisine and imply that the recipe is italian...why pepper your demonstration with italian this...italian that. The recipe may be your... More

We went on a Monday around noon. The tables were full but we didn't mind sitting at the counter. We shared an Amatriciana (Guanciale (pork jowl), chili, tomato, pecorino, and black pepper). The thin crust was perfect, not to soggy and not too dry. A pleasant dining experience.

My daughter and I visited in the late afternoon on a Saturday. We had to wait a few minutes to be seated but too long. We ordered the corn on the cob, which was beyond delicious, and two different pizzas to try, knowing we'd have leftovers for breakfast at the hotel. The leftovers didn't make it until morning.

This was the least satisfying meal during our 3 week holiday in the US. We were in the area and in the mood for pizza and Delfina came up with a great rating on TA. We thought the pizza's were a bit expensive, priced around 18/19 dollar (excl. tax) so we shared a pizza. Perhaps we made the wrong choice... More

We were back in San Francisco and thought we should try all new places but just happened to be passing by and wanted a quick bite, so we popped in! There is usually a wait of :20-:40 minutes but we walked right in to a table for two. We decided on the Little Gem Salad for $13.00, fresh, creamy and... More

It was a cold San Fransisco night recently that saw us putting our name on the blackboard at the front door for a seat at Delfina. The wait was about 20 minutes but they were happy for us a order a glass of wine while we stood and waited. The pizza is excellent, thin blistery base with high quality topping... More

We've been spending a month living in San Francisco and have had the chance to sample dozens of restaurants, mostly in the Fillmore District. Pizza Delfina is one of our three favorites. The food and service are outstanding. The restaurant is always crowded. No reservations are taken. You basically sign up on a chalk board and are seated when a... More
