5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Check out this fantastic restaurant in Mission, great food, great service.. Reserve a table in advance or enjoy your meal "in the bar" and go social. Highly recommended!

“Top rated restaurnat not that great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The service was good. Our meal was mediocre at best. There was only one salad and no green vegetables. We could see the pizzeria next door owned by the same owner serving green beans but we could not order them. I almost got a take out order.
The wines were very pricey. I expect wines to be costly in a restaurant but the prices here exceeded reasonableness.
We wont go back.

“Atmosphere, food & service - perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We went here for the culmination of a birthday celebration, and it lived up to all expectations. The atmosphere was lovely - comfortable and friendly, but also quite stylish without being fussy. The food was delicious, with lots of very compelling choices (we particularly liked the grilled calamari antipasti). And the service was excellent! All in all, a great finish to a great birthday.

“Very Cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We arrived and the place was lined up outside the door, thus I suggest you have a reservation. Delfina has a cool SF vibe, hip people and wonderful wait staff. Even though it was crowded, the wait staff were very efficient and attentive. Our meal was excellent both appetizers and main course. On of our fav meals during our two weeks travelling Cali.

“Nice Italian option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Ate here with some local friends. It was a place they had always wanted to try. Overall the place did not disappoint. The food was great especially the entree and dessert. You won't be disappointed.

We had reservations, but still had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. Tables are also on top of each other, so there's no privacy, but the food was worth it.
