Enjoyed a Saturday night dinner at Delfina. From the fresh bread and olive oil to the Sole pasta everything was fresh and delicious. Cheese for dessert ensured a good ending to a very flavourful dinner.

Fabulous meal, fabulous service, easy environment. I had the tiny prosciutto ravioli - agnolotti? And my partner had the mushroom gnocchi. Both light and delicious. Don't skip the Tartine bread!
