SF Weekly's Description

Like the next-door mother ship Delfina, this upscale hole-in-the-wall spinoff in the Mission maximizes the flavor of top-quality local ingredients through simple combinations and straightforward preparations. Crispy, thin-crust, 12-inch pies (sorry, no slices) at Pizzeria Delfina come with classic toppings - pepperoni with fresh-stretched-daily mozzarella, housemade fennel sausage with onions and peppers - plus creative daily specials such as the Amatriciana (guanciale, caramelized onions, and pecorino cheese). If you're not in the mood for pizza, you could make a great meal of appetizers such as tuna conserva with white kidney beans. Save room for dessert: To beat these crisp, delicate cannoli, you'd need a ticket to Sicily.

    Everytime I have been here there has been a long wait, but the pizza is worth it. They even let you buy wine to enjoy on the street while you wait for a table.

The space is airy and light, the staff very friendly. The peperoni pizza for the girls was great, the prosciutto... More >>

    Delicious thin crust pizza with extremely fresh ingredients and bold flavors. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef

    You can make the argument that no restaurant in the last decade has changed the dining landscape quite like Delfina and its pizzeria offshoot next door. And that's a good thing. [Eater 38 Member]

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the pizza margherita is delicious. Yum!

  • Epicurious on 08/25/10

    Craig Stoll cooks Italian food here through the lens of the Bay Area: hyperseasonal, locally sourced, and as primally satisfying as the home cooking of a Tuscan nonna. The panna cotta is legendary.

  • 7x7 Magazine on 01/27/10

    The pizza margherita is scrumptious...it's #21 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
