Del's food is mediocre for its price, which is on the expensive side. The service is not great either. I would not eat there again.

We stopped here for dinner on our way through town. The service was impeccable. The pasta was fresh made. It's a great spot if you're not into the really busy bar scene down the road!!

Given it's a pizzeria you'd think they could cook a decent pizza - you would be wrong. They did give us our money back for one, although they didn't admit there was anything wrong with it (evidently having salami on a pizza makes it greasy on the underside of the base).

We went to Del's for an evening meal. The food and service was very good. We all loved the fresh rolls. My daughter knocked over my wife's water and it saturated my sons pasta. They replaced his pasta free of charge. My daughter also tossed her sippy cup of milk on the floor where the lid promptly popped off and... More

Very much enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs. Rolls are excellent. Chianti was good and well priced. Good service and some tables with ocean views. Highly recommend this casual eatery.

We arrived at the Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge on Mother's Day hoping to dine at Ventana Grill, but it was booked. The view was so amazing from our balcony we decided to order Pizza delivery. I examined the Trip Advisor reviews carefully, then decided to order the Chicken Pesto Pizza with Ricotta, Mushrooms and Black Olives as suggested by... More

love their pizza~ fresh dough, ample quality toppings & homemade rolls with garlic butter that are addictive. Their Eggplant Parmesan & Spaghetti with Meatballs is delicious but the pizza is definitely their shining star. Highly recommend this family friendly place!

We placed a delivery order while staying at the Oxford Suites in Pismo Beach. I was pleasantly surprised that the pizza was delivered directly to our room and we did not have to go down to the front desk to pick it up. Del's pizza is really good. We had a pepperoni and mushroom pizza and the ingredients were fresh... More

We were overcharged based on their Internet site. Our pizza was advertised as $21.95 for a large with $2.00 for an additional topping. We paid over &30 for the bill. I called the manager who said they had a price increase but was not posted online. I feel cheated. Make sure you are charged correctly. As a side note the... More
