We got a variety of appetizers. Great calamari, brussel sprouts. And the butter is amazing! For dinner I got the pork sugo parparadelle, the shredded pork reminded me of sweet carnitas. Great food and great wine!

We had a wonderful dinner here last Friday. Our server, Molly, was amazing. She had an amazing knowledge of all the dishes and the extensive wine list. She was very engaging and made our meal even more enjoyable. The warm olives were a nice light starter. We then thoroughly enjoyed the roasted chicken with olive oil mashed potatoes (yummy) and...

I went here with my family last night as a belated birthday dinner. We had a salad and the carne crudo as appetizers. Both were great but not super memorable. As an entree, my dad and I split the rabbit and an order of the pork ragu. The ragu was served on pasta made out of chestnut pasta. The sauce... More

One of those rare places that has it all working - incredible food, amazing service from every person, relaxed and comfortable energy. Our waitress was so engaged and knowledgable, she truly deserves 5 stars. And the food - I will be dreaming of that risotto for a long time. If you enjoy the subtlety of well prepared food, the gentle... More

It looks like a small cafe, you line up and take a number to eat there and there is no impressive table setting. But the food is precision. The home made pasta had the best sauce. The Italian sausage was authentic and the sea food was full of flavor. The service was good and they were very quick with the... More

HIghly recommended by a friend and Delafina lived up to a top rated experience. Sat at bar and waitress recommended a three course meal-heirloom tomatoes/mozzarella, pappardelle with pork, and Roasted Chicken. All were amazing and delicious. Can't remember a meal this good in a long time. Only negative is restaurant is a bit noisy.

The spaghetti was divine, but tables are crammed together, it's too loud, and service was not that great.

Delfina is a neighborhood gem. Perfect for a casual Italian meal. Dishes are fresh - salads are especially lovely. I personally love the Pizzas. Recommendations recommended.

I enjoyed the food- and service was good- but it was hard to hear anything. The space is very tight and it is hard to hear across the table. It also took 20 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. (They suggested going to the bar- but there are 4 seats at the bar)
