We love to make food we love to eat, and we can't wait to share our fresh homemade pasta, stone hearth pizza and house cured salumi with you. Colourful, social, fun and fresh...Meet the new dels!

We all enjoyed a 14th birthday dinner at this pleasant Italian restaurant. It is casual and quite laid back, yet is also quite trendy. The service was very good. The ambiance was good, and of course the food was also good. Some of us had the pizzas, others had various pastas, and they were all excellent. This is a good... More

I've been there so many times what I like the malt here is the fresh bread and mix butters as a part of their starters ... Great Italian food, home made pasta and nice atmosphere makes me come back again

AWent to this recently renamed spot for a great dinner with colleagues. The service was efficient and friendly. The menu is far better than the standard pasta and pizza place. Salads and appetizers were diverse and blended ingredients you would only expect from Nonna. The arugula salad was generous and delicious with nuts and gorgonzola. I paired with pasta nero... More

Had dinner at the NEW DEL's Enoteca pizzeria and I like the changes that they have made. For patrons who have been to the old design, you will notice they removed the wall between the bar area and dining room. This added more tables as the old bar area only had tables for 2 as it was quite narrow. Now... More

We were trying to celebrate my grandparents anniversary, and my sisters 11th birthday. After the 3 hours, we were starving and the food was poor, they were busy however, three hours is a long time to wait for food. The servers, (John and another girl) were very kind and sorry. They brought the general manager out to apologize for the... More

We were seated at our table after a short wait, as the host was not manning the front desk for a few mins, but that was not a big problem. Then it was another 10 minute wait until anyone came to bring us water or take our order. This was due to a mixup where the host forgot to tell... More
