Good Italian Food.

We were three of us for dinner, I have to say this is an authentic Italian restaurant (not fast food cafe) and food was delicious. Service was average, good ambition and most importantly good selection of wine. Can't ask more then this in Cornwall. Del Mar is not in London, Paris or New York. I... read more

The pizza we ordered was dreadful. No care taken in preparation. Almost no tomato and awful cheese. The veg on the top has been dumped on. A whole chilli dumped on. A mushroom sliced in half. I'd like to say it was authentic Italian . but as I see it - just poor preparation and overpriced. I will be using... More

Our pizzas are made by a professional Italian pizza chef and everything from the pizza dough to the tomato base is made on the premises using fresh ingredients. We use only quality ingredients, such as the cheese, which is 100% mozzarella and is ordered from a specialist Italian supplier. We would be pleased to welcome you back to the restaurant... More

Friendly staff, excellent food, Pizza is amazing, I'd advise the Diavola and Mussells to start. Very large restaurant, I'd advise booking in the summer. When quiet, which last night it was, service ad food is served prompt. The only thing I'd say Del Mar lacks is "mood lighting" It's very bright in there and doesn't have that restaurante' or romantic... More

Myself and a family member were sat next to the couple complaining of the wrong dish and the hair in the food and I think you are being unfair in your review of Del Mar. To summarise due to the language barrier between staff and customers as it is an Italian restaurant after all it is perfectly acceptable to say... More

As a local, I had seen this restaurant on frequest visits to Perranporth and asked my partner to take me there for dinner on my birthday. As it was mid-week we didnt need to book (my partner did check) and we arrived about 7.30. I ordered the sardines for a starter and they were a little overdone - in fact... More
