Went here instead of Shell Beach Brewhouse (would have been my choice) as the promise of their lasagne swung the balance. Turned out they had run out. How can an Italian restaurant run out of lasagne???!!!! Anyway, starter was forgotten and arrived with the mains (luckily removed from the bill). Food took too long to come out compared to other...

Have only eaten the pizza and salad. Del's special pizza is really good, has slightly sweet sauce and a nice chewy crust. Salad is your standard green salad, but seems fresh and the italian and ranch dressing are really good. Never eaten in but it always seems crowded.

food was great. Small and always seems to be crowded with happy eaters. Eaten there a few times and no complaints.

Good lasagne and a nice calzone pizza, accompanied by a standard local cab. wine, recommended by the waitresses which was rather nice. The lasagne was nice, tasty and meaty and could have been perfect if a different cheese had been used on the top, other than a slice of processed cheese! Fresh Parmesan would also have been a better choice... More

We tried this place for the first time by recommendation and the food was awesome! The cheesy garlic bread is a must! The servers there were all pretty young and inexperienced... and it showed, as they forgot an entire entree and continually forgot side items, like ranch, crushed peppers, etc. We paid for our check before my sons forgotten meal...

The restaurant was being used by local people, families, work colleagues, young people, seniors - atmosphere was homely. Decor a bit traditional - lots of green and red. Service good - staff very attentive and checking whether we needed more bread drinks etc. Good place to eat - thought it a little expensive for a pizza, spaghetti bolognaise and two... More

After being stuck in a traffic jam from Long Beach to somewhere west of Santa Barbara, we finally checked in at Pismo Beach. Starving, and not able leave the dogs alone to go eat, we needed an option. Pizza always works, but not that factory stuff. So I asked the motel staff and they suggested Del's. Great pizza! Hand tossed,... More

Solid 4 stars! My wife and I make a point to eat at Del's each time we visit Pismo Beach. We just completed our most recent visit, and this time we did take out from Del's as we were staying in a nearby cottage with our dogs. This time we got the Mama Del's pizza. Very good all the way... More
