A pearl in Brandon

Roaring down I-75 past Tampa, I realized it was dinner time and consulted TripAdvisor for restaurants not too far from my path. The menu at Della's after Dark in Brandon (East Tampa) struck my fancy. As I passed the innumerable strip malls along Brandon Rd, I started to have second thoughts. But... read more

First of all, the restaurant was so dark that I did not appear to be open. The menu is limited and the sandwiches were average. I don't think I'll go again.

This delightful little dinner spot offers a sophisticated menu of delicious and interesting choices. The justifiably proud chef visited our table and welcomed us and invited us back. He was very accommodating of our requests and prepared the food to perfection. There was live dinner music in the background which was a nice backdrop for easy conversation. Would highly recommend!

My mom and I have visited Della's Delectables on occastion with some friends for lunch over the years, and I do have a good selection and their items are priced accordingly and the staff is friendly. On this trip, my mom and I split thier chicken salad sandwich and it was alright this time around, and probably wouldn't get it... More

Della's After Dark is a delightful experience from start to finish. The lighting is low, the tables are nicely spaced and the live music can be heard but is not obtrusive if you want to talk to your dinner companions. There were four choices for appetizers, four main course and four desserts, we were also offered two chef specials as... More

The food is above average for a sandwich shop. You order at the deli counter and the food is delivered quickly to your table. The Sandwiches are very good; the soups are just average; the salads are better than average.; the desserts are spectacular. The atmosphere is better than most sandwich shops. Expect to spend $8-$10 per person. Things seem... More

Treated ourselves to Dellas After Dark - so glad we did. Loved the atmosphere from the moment we walked in. Small, dimly lit (in a good way) and intimate - just the right ingreedients for a romatic evening out. Started our meal with fabulous escargot. For dinner, husband had steak which he said was the best he had ever had... More

By no means am I a foodie, but my wife and I had a fantastic dining experience at Della's After Dark last night. The food, the service, the music, the atmosphere....all of it was great. Again, not a foodie but these are the courses we had: the appetizer was flat bread with melted blue cheese with slices of pears and... More

Great and fast lunch. Very complex flavors in simple presentations. Pressed Cuban and cup of baked potato soup provided just enough.
