Excellent pizza, outstanding Arancini and friendly service in a wonderful neighborhood. What's not to like.

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)

I have to say that this was one of the best meals I had in San Fran during my visit. We got a bunch of different plates and really passed them around for us all to try! To start we had the Insalata di Campo, Little Gems, La Quercia Prosciutto Americano & Melone Pazzo, and all were seperately delicious. For... More

Everything in the short menu is delicious. I like their appetizers and healthy pizzas. I just wish they start taking reservations instead of waiting outside for a long time.

Visited in July 2014 while visiting a friend in SF. One of his favorite local places for a nice casual dinner. Very good food, and service was friendly and attentive. As other reviewers noted, it's a bit noisy. Obviously popular, every table was occupied when we were there. Definitely recommend making reservations.

Everything we ordered was outstanding. You should go. I ordered the short rib capilini. The service is great. You will not be disappointed.

The location is spot on, the service good but unfortunately all our dishes missed a finishing touch. Not bad for a quick bite but for a nice evening out there are many more better italian restaurants around!

Went on a recommendation from a restauranteur who goes to San Fran regularly. Food was excellent, service good... very casual atmosphere but tables are very tight and can hear everyone's conversation for 4 tables around you. Good food for sure.

This is a go-to place for me. I like thin crust pizzas and they have some of the best. The crust is firm and crunchy, yet the pizza has a softer dough under it. The toppings are interesting, fresh and just yummy!
