Great little Itialian Restaurant!

If you are in the Pismo Beach area and don't want to fight the crowds in Pismo, take a few minute drive to Shell beach and check out Del's Pizzeria. They make great pizzas and good Italian food. Not five star gourmet, but a good meal for a good price in a nice cozy atmosphere. We have discovered... read more

We did not enjoy our pizza! It was burnt on the crust but not done in the middle! We decided partly our fault because we ordered the meat one and it was loaded! The wine was great!

I ordered fettuccine Alfredo and it was watery. Usually as it cools it will thicken but it never did. The manager that evening was great and did not charge me. Two other friends did like their entree and he did not charge. We liked the cheese sticks and garlic bread. Hate to say it, I love Guisseppe's restaurant in downtown... More

I've never eaten I but we eat their pizza every Sunday night. All fresh ingredients. Expensive for pizza but with every penny. Great sauce, dough, and cheese!

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
