Delucas is always awesome, except the last time we went, but that's another story and they had a different chef. It was good on that visit but not awesome.
Anyways, delucas has amazing pizzas. I've had the margarita, chili seafood, chicken basil and some others. The pasta is pretty good and entrees are pretty good as well, arancini balls are a regular addition to every time we go.
Anyways on our last visit, it was more or less the same. Awesome pizza, awesome arancini balls and beers. They could do with increasing their beer list, adding some more boutique beers like American pale ales and ipas, but coopers is good enough.
The only downside to delucas is that's it's always kinda warm,
Probably because of the pizza oven, and the smell drives you crazy waiting for your pizza to be cooked. It's nice and intimate and they always have good music, like the smiths, David Bowie and cat power. All in all great. Could benefit from being less warm (not sure how they'd do that) and a little less squished, and more beers. Not sure how they could though that either, It's pretty cramped in the majority of old town house turned into restaurants on Darby street. Still, best pizza ok Darby.
We went their on our first date!

I've had two really good meals here. 1st meal was pizza. Really excellent, crispy base, great toppings, authentic. Another trip I had a main, pasta I think. It was really good from memory. Great atmosphere. it's hard to get in so you need to book in advance. Will be back

This Italian food is the real thing and so good - everything is made fresh - finally found a restaurant in Newcastle that serves great authentic Italian. Four of us had entree, main and desert and every course was delicious for each of us - going back again tonight with another couple because the food was so good!

First impressions.. Not good...but It was recommended for its pizzas and the pizzas did not disappoint. But while waiting I looked up and the fan was black with dirt, the light fittings were covered in black dust and the ceiling had dust balls over it. No air conditioning on a hot day.. I could see in the kitchen and I saw the owner wipe a container with his apron. This place could be a jewel if it was cleaned up and modernised a bit because the pizzas are good!

great food and terrific service. dine here often and always excellent and consistent. booking a must, the venue is small and cosy and this is a great part of the character. To the owners who are lovely - dont change a thing.
