Consistently high quality, simple, delicious food worth the price. Every meal we've had here was delicious and we'd order again. Possibly the best calamari I've ever had!

This small (seats approx. 40) restaurant, wedged in between an ethnic market and flower store, is one of the BEST in Boston. The menu is essentially Italian- but don't expect spaghetti and meatballs! Chicken Parm and the Bolognese are OUT OF THIS WORLD, the pork tenderloin in melt in your mouth tender, crusted Swordfish is perfect... never a bad meal. The Capresse Salad, which is seasonal, is incredible-- tomatoes with flavor and creamy mozzarella that is tasty and just firm enough to cut. Indulge in the Chocolate Bread Pudding or Canolli for dessert-- you will not be disappointed! Beer and Wine only, and no reservations, so arrive early!!

Delfinos is hands down the best restaurant I have ever been to. The Chicken Parm is amazing and all the meals are amazing. The portion sizes are amazing and the food is cooked to perfection.You can order pasta, seafood, and steak and you will be satisfied with all. Michael and all the wait staff are amazing and the atmosphere is great. Steven the owner and Joanne the head chef truly have made this into the best restaurant and its getting the recognition it should. I believe all should eat at this restaurant because it is amazing and one of a kind.

We've eaten here twice now and loved it. A few days ago we were a larger group and ordered calamari, bruschetta and tomatoes/mozarella/prosciutto appetizers, each one delicious. Calamari were crisp and tasty, the tapenade that came with them was perfect. Bruschetta was crunchy and deliciously dressed. And there was a small fist worth of mozarella that was fresh and tender and really tasty. We had some entrees from the menu and some specials - each was great and while we thought we'd take some food home (the portions are generous) we weren't able to stop until there was nothing more on our plates. We tried two desserts - the chocolate bread pudding and tiramisu. Again, portions sized for sharing and wonderful flavors and texture. Tiramisu is firmer than the original and I think has a layer of chocolate or something non-standard in it but is delicious nonetheless. The servers are friendly and polite, staying on top of things despite the busy restaurant. We will most definitely be back!
