Very Good

Walked in for take-out. Ordered pizza and a antipasto salad to go. The young lady who took our order in the bar was brief and very matter-a-fact. The pizza came out hot and was very good. The salad was wonderful, however the Italian dressing did not have much flavor. $37 for a large pepperoni pizza... read more

We both ordered calzones.....sausage and mine was vegetarian. The veggies included spinach, olives and tomatoes. I expected spinach to be cooked like I've had in omelettes before but it wasn't and didn't mesh with the overall taste of calzone. In addition, although calzones were both huge, the dough didn't seem to be baked thoroughly. Decor was cute; pricing was a... More

We are on vacation and this was recommended by the front desk in our hotel. We honestly were not expecting much and man were we surprised by the deliciousness of the pizza! It was delivered to our hotel room hot, earlier than they said and more delicious than this post can describe!

Del's has the best Italian food around. I'm a picky Italian and not much stands up to tasting authentic, but Del's does. The sauce on the pasta dishes is delicious and the pizza is fantastic. The bread balls served before dinner are hot and taste heavenly. Del's is a must try when in Pismo Beach.

Del's is hands down the best pizza on the Central Coast. I have been coming to Del's for 16 years. My favorite pizza is the Shell Beach Road. It has Pepperoni, Linguicia, Garlic, Onions, Pineapple. The pineapple really adds to this pizza, the sweetness in the pineapple cuts the saltiness and spicyness associated with pepperoni and linguicia. One thing you... More

Del's has been around for a very long time. Discovered it on a trip to Pismo more than 15 years ago and we try to dine here whenever we're in the area. Menu has changed some since our last visit but still offers a fairly good variety of choices.

What a place. Family owned, friendly and helpful staff and great food. What more could you ask for? The rolls are served fresh from the oven and they make you want to ruin your appetite for dinner. The garlic bread is brought to the table with warm marinara. So good! But don't let them distract you from the pizza that... More
