After hearing about Delfina for a few years, I had the opportunity to go there with clients. Good thing we had reservations as the place filled up to capacity quickly with a line out the door. The service was excellent, the food was very good....The menu was limited, not a huge selection, but that is the ambiance of the of the place. We tried just about everything as we shared appetizers, mains, and deserts. Our server also recommended an Italian wine that was right on par with the type of wine I told him I was looking for. It was a very enjoyable dinner.More

We were staying in the locality and this restaurant came up as one of the best. And it didn't disappoint. Lovely bread from the nearby Tartine Bakery (only complaint - please let us have soft butter to spread on it, not hard). I ordered White...Peach Bellini. Peach liqueur made in house. The best peach Bellini ever! Great chicory salad (please more pear) and spaghetti with tomato and chilli was delicious. Roasted chicken with olive oil mash was also declared real good. Don't go home without trying the little apple donuts - a real treat.More

Delfina is extremely popular for their great food and excellent atmosphere so, if you don't book in advance you might not get in. Great Italian food, excellent drink options and a friendly helpful staff make for a reliably comfortable and enjoyable dinner experience.

Amazing simple italian food executed incredibly. Their famous Spaghetti are just as described, unbelievable. We ordered two dinner packages that had ravioli with ragu and a meet platter with sausages, ribs and some kind of stake. Tricolor salad was amazing with pancetta inside had a...really food touch to the flavor. Tartine bread and butter amazing. Great food and great time!More

Really good Italian food. Pasta, meet balls, side dishes, tricolore salad. Straight to the point with falvors. Service could be a bit better, faster and more attentive but the food is excellent!

Had dinner here our first night in SF and were not disappointed. Our waiter was helpful and friendly, he was able to give us good information as we navigated both the wine and the dinner menu. Originally I was excited to try the Sunday Supper...but then I feared it might just be a bit too much food so we both ordered the spaghetti along with a salad for me and the Tartine bread to share. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce was wonderful. I would definitely come back and the next time, we will just go for it and order the big old Sunday Supper.More

Delfina’s is the perfect neighborhood restaurant with outdoor seating but so many waiting,l there’s always someone you know. That camaraderie is important to the success of the restaurant; it’s not just incredibly good Italian food, it’s a neighbor. The prices are fair, the food is...delicious and generously portioned and your neighbors are here! What’s not to like?’More

We had reservations at Delfina, my first time there. We arrived at 5:30 and by 6:00 there were no more tables, the quality obviously was reflected. The pasta was super, great salad, and really really good wine. The waiter was super knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and...prompt. A fantastic dinner, for my first night in San Francisco. Check it out!More
