“Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Recently dined here with a very large group. Service was excellent. The food was really, perfect.... fresh and tastefully prepared. Although, for an Italian restaurant,it is not right in the North End but I think it would be one of the top places to eat there if it was. Tried a new beer, La Rossa and loved it. Looking forward to returning.

“Stellar Italian dining so close to home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

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!

“Above anything in the North End!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

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 the BEST Italian Restaurant Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

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.
