Stayed at the travelodge in the dockside, and happened to stumble across Delifonesca. Fantastic service, very good with children. The food was to die for!! Absolutely 5** meal. Excellent. Can't wait to visit Delifonesca again!

This place is a real find- great menu - mostly really well done classics but a few interesting dishes such as catfish. Great steak, fish and chips, charcuterie and cheese. There is an amazing deli shop attached which you could spend hours in if you like fine/unusual food and alcohol. We also had a lively selection of wine and it... More

This has just got to be one of my favourite eateries - period ! Ignore the fact that it is in a business park behind the travel lodge, if you are at the conference centre take the 5 minute taxi ride to what is an absolute revelation. I am not sure whether it is a high class Italian deli which... More

I visited with three long standing friends for one of our twice yearly get togethers. We always choose Delafonseca for fab food, good service and jolly ambience. We were most disappointed with our visit last week. Our table was booked for 7pm. We arrived on time and were shown to a booth at the side of the room. Seating was... More

Having lived in Liverpool for 12 years and sampled the majority of restaurants - this is my absolute number one. 5 star service. 5 star food. Great setting. Warm, welcoming and cosy. Added bonus: Free parking! I visit every time I come back to Liverpool. It's a home from home.

Superb food in an out of the way, quiet environment with ample free parking, staff are pleasant and helpful and part of the establishment is an excellent delicatessen with... More

Now this is not my first visit by any means to this delightful Deli. From what I have gleaned, they have two establishments, one in the art of Liverpool and the one I have visited several times on Liverpool' Dockside. A little out the way and not a place you might 'stumble upon', it is just across the car park... More
