Grazie mille Delfina!

A fantastic experience! We had the chance to be seated at the counter, just in front of the chefs preparing the pizzas! What a show! The team works well to offer a very good pizza.

This is my second time enjoying this great neighborhood spot. You always see a good mix of people ordering take out, and people sitting down at one of the few tables to enjoy the delicious pizza. I had a delicious pizza with olives, capers, and anchovies. It's great to get the little plate of toppings (real grated cheese, pepper flakes,... More

After a morning visiting Mission and Castro we went to this restaurant because it looked good. My margherita pizza was delicious and my brother's (I can remember which one) was good two. We had a great and fast service. We still remember how great this pizza place was when we talk about our trip to SF.

Panna pizza. Simple as that. I added sausage to it and it was a party in my mouth. I ate the whole thing by myself. Good dough, great crust. Also had the tempura fried fava beans with aioli. That might be a seasonal item , but that was delicious as well. Great menu. Hard to choose. Staff was very friendly.... More

The Delfina pizzerias are excellent. Sides are good, too! Sidewalk dining, call to pick up and take out. Go early to avoid a line.

The pizza here was crispy and delicious but not true Neopolitan which has a wetter and slightly thicker crust. Have the cherry tomato pizza if in season. Worth a visit. Also excellent homemade Italian ice

One of my favorite places to eat. Amazing pizza, love the atmosphere, prices are ok, the rest of their menu keeps changing and is usually excellent.

This restaurant is very poorly managed and the pizza is subpar. Unless, of course, you love a crust that is precooked before they add ingredients; my husband's pizza had uncooked prosciutto topped with a ton of arugula. He ordered a pizza not a salad:( I had the Alfredo pizza which was a special - it was just ok. We waited... More

This is another great artisanal pizza lovers delight. Try the mushroom or the margarita pizza and you can't go wrong. They also have a fine Italian wine list that's very affordable. The sidewalk cafe seating is very comfortable and not too noisy. For a great lunch in the Mission District I recommend trying this spot.

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
