This place is great. The pizza is fantastic with a lot of different choices. Sat outside and it was comfortable with heaters above. Service was excellent. Everything was fresh and delicious. Nice wine selection as well. I'm originally from New York, and I felt right at home.

Another San Francisco restaurant that doesn't take reservations and requires a long wait to get in. But, also another San Francisco restaurant that has few equals in other cities. The pizza and the wine are just wonderful--for us, it is worth the wait!

Don't be put off by long queues. This is an eatery worth waiting for.
My spouse and I had to wait at the pavement for 30 minutes but we had an excellent dinner.
Food is simple cooked with quality and fresh ingredients and you can understand that not only
by its excellent taste but also by the fact that it's easily digested.
The menu is kind of small and doesn't offer many choices but I always find that to be a trace of a restaurant that has high standards.
Service is professional but yet attentive and friendly and I would definitely say that it's a very strong positive characteristic of Pizzeria Delfina.
The atmosphere is very nice and its young crowd gives very positive and lively vibes.
We had the chance to sit at the bar which overlooks the kitchen and it was really nice to be able to observe how they were preparing our food.
Last but not least, don't forget to taste the desserts and especially the Baba au Rum with apricot sauce.

Pizzeria Delfina has some of the best food in San Francisco, and in a city that is known for its foodie delights that is saying something. All their food is wonderful, but in my opinion, they offer the best Margarita Pizza to be found in the US. I have tried lots of places on the East Coast, both well known and undiscovered, but nothing has surpassed this place. The pizza is simple, thin crust cooked perfectly, tomatoes, cheese, basil...simple but superb. They combine these basic ingredients and together into something that is a delight for the senses. I always try and visit here at least once on every trip to San Francisco, and this last weekend was no exception. Pouring rain, and a lack of lunch companions couldn't stop me. I sat at the bar (perfect for solo diners), and as a starter had grilled escarole topped with lemon, walnuts and garum (amazing taste) and followed it up with a mouth watering pizza. Add to that a delicious glass of wine and it was a perfect afternoon. Go here--your tastebuds will thank you.

They don't take reservations, you put your name on the board when you arrive, and generally wait 10-15 minutes, but well worth it. The pizzas are excellent, with perfect crust every time. Also delightful is the tri-color salad. Rich selection of obscure Italian wines, the staff is very helpful in making your selection.
They also do carry-out if you want to call ahead.
