“Amazing Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

With Saturday night in full swing it's tiny, cramped, crowded, dark, noisy and fabulous! The lamb pizza was crammed with slices of perfectly medium rare lamb and a good kick of salsa verde. So delicious! Service was speedy, very friendly, no airs and graces but that's not the vibe. A trip to the bathroom is quite an adventure, down a dark alley, keyed gate and a timed light which would be much better on a movement sensor, so you don't end up stumbling along in the dark. Loved the staff and the food though.

“Best Italian in newcastle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

I love this place! The food is really fantastic, homemade and delicious. I ALWAYS get the gnocchi which is the best! I'm starting to feel the portion size is a little small.
Always will return!

“Delicious food, lovely staff, small portions, home made”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Deluca's is delicious! the meal portions are on the smaller side so order more food so your not hungry, (although I wasn't when I left :) - the food has so much flavor you couldnt eat a large portion, I had ordered the pasta with NO PRAWNS as I am pregnant and can't eat seafood, it came with the prawns anyway :( If the wait wasn't so long for the food I would have said something but I just swapped with my husband instead, which was a shame I had such a craving for this pasta!!! The arrancini balls are so delicious!! As is all the food really, all home made :)

If you are not starving and love delicious food I would go here for sure, but the meals are small portions, they have almost too much flavor (I like that but husband no so much) and there is always a wait for the food, maybe pre-order if you can :)

The staff were lovely, they booked us a tabel and we were late by 10 minutes and they still heald it for us, the man serving us was great, I think the owner is a lady, she was always nice ont he phone but seems very stressed int he restaurant.

“Bigger is not always better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Although situated on Darby street home of the bigbuck and often soul-less cafes (excluding Glee) Deluca's Pizza retains a gorgeous, humble atmosphere. Atomspheric and well lit, the tiny space hails authentic Italian grass roots. The food is flavoursome and bold, in particular the Antipasto Platter and the Aranchini Balls. The service is relaxed, helpful and honest. A great team and a beautiful night out.
