This is another outstanding
This is another outstanding Italian restaurant in our neighborhood. The food is beautifully prepared with what we believe were very fresh ingredients and presented with flair. The salume appetizer comprised several meats and cheeses and came with true breadsticks. The special on the night we went was the lasagna, and it was excellent in taste and not overly salted. The veal dish was also excellent. The service was perfection. It will be one of our favorite places to dine. Bravo!

A Quiet Spot
Food quality similar to other Italian restaurants such as Il Fornaio, but it's a much smaller place. So the noise level is much lower. It's good if you are in the mood for quiet.

Well worth a try
This was my second visit to Delizie. The house made pastas are wonderful. Service is personalized and gracious. The place is small so I would think reservations would be wise.

Went on a recommendation of a friend that works in San Carlos. We all thought our food was very good, great service. Not complaints. Will go back.

Authentic Delicious Italian Food
Delizie is authentic, delicious Italian food on the Peninsula. The Owner Francesco and his Italian staff are incredible- warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great local spot
Seems to be a touch above other local spots - they know what they are doing -- will be back.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my wife's and I second time to Delizie. We were joined by my mother and my sister and her husband. We were greeted by all the staff and immediately sat at a very nice table. Francesco, owner, greeted us and made us feel very welcome. We selected a bottle of Barbara wine, which was great. We had appetizers and the main course was fabulous. The food was excellent and the presentation was exceptional. The restaurant was about 3/4 full and the noise level was quite low. The overall experience was great, even the second time there. A must to visit if you live on the Peninsula or in the San Carlos area. This will be one of our local spots. Thanks Francesco!!

Around the corner Gem in San Carlos
Just off busy Laurel Street on San Carlos Avenue, Delizie is a new Italian restaurant with wonderful food. We've been for dinner three times and have yet to find a dish that is not really, really delicious. The Spinach Salad may be the best I've ever had with cranberries, nuts, and carmelized onions. It's big enough to split, as are all the salads. My pasta favorites so far are the Gnocchi di Mare, Fusilli alla Calabrese, and Tortelloni Delizie. Main course winners are the Scaloppine al Limone and Bracioline di Vitello.
We plan to continue to work our way through the menu!

Dinner was wonderful. As good as any Italian restaurant we've ever gone to.

Nice intimate restaurant
My wife and I like to go to smaller places to eat, especially when they have good fresh food. San Carlos really has a nice selection of goo places to dine.
We will be back!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service.......there are so many Italian restaurants in this area of San Carlos that it's hard to shine. But Delize really does. All 4 dishes that our party ordered were delicious.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food. Very much Southern Italian, like my gramma used to make. Delightful, charming owner. Loved everything about the experience. We'll definitely be back!
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Italian food!
A small place but food is extraordinary!. We get take put regularly from this palace! And once in a while eat at the restaurant. Very different from the regular Italian fare you get at other Italian places.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner thanks to a combination of excellent food and Vincent, the outstanding owner. We started with a mussel/clam appetizer and moved on to a pasta dish with wild boar and the cod dish. Both were excellent. We will happily return.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A True Find
Delizie continues to be one of our favorite local restaurants. The friendly staff continues to perform with high standards. The atmosphere is very warm which blends in well with the many outstanding dishes. They continue to make our every visit as if we are long family friends.

Italy in San Carlos
The food is fantastic and authentic. All of the dishes we had were exceptional and the portions were substantial. One of the best italian restaurants in the bay area.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a nice addition to San Carlos. Service was fantastic and the homemade ear pasta with ragu was very tasty especially with red wine. The wines on the list are very reasonably priced.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice local find
I have been to Delizie's twice and both times I have really enjoyed it. This is a wonderful southern Italian restaurant with delightful people and excellent service. It is certainly worth a try.I will be back - good food, nice people, reasonable prices - what more can one ask for?
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a gem!
I've been there twice now and I am obsessed with this place! First time it was a birthday dinner for my girlfriend and we all had such a great time! The food was excellent, the service outstanding and the atmosphere so cozy and inviting. Because my experience was so good I couldn't wait to go back with my two foodie friends and they loved it too! We had the cauliflower, calamari, eggplant, seafood gnocchi and burrata which were all delicious! For entrees, we had the wild boar and the mushroom pasta and they were yummy as well. We loved all the dishes we had! This is a special find and I'm so excited it's so close to where we live. Can't wait to find another reason to go back again soon!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our new go to...
This is our new go to with or without friends. Authentic Italian food- trattoria style. Friendly, warm, and welcoming Italian service without pretense of attitude. Have been several times and look forward to our next visit. The owners are young, energetic, and sincerely interested in everyone enjoying the entire experience.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We started with the prosciutto
We started with the prosciutto bruschetta appetizer which was different but very tasty, and went well with our Primitivo wine. Next we had the pasta with mushrooms which was wonderful and perfectly cooked. My husband had the bacala (cod) which was also excellent. The menu had lots of different dishes that I don't typically see on local Italian menus, but that I would definitely come back for.
Our waiter was very attentive, and answered all our questions about the menu in detail.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great experience!
Delizie is fast becoming my new go-to place to meet up with friends and have a wonderful meal! The restaurant is so cozy and has a nice family feel that I love! But, what's more is that the food is wonderful! This was my 3rd time going and I am seriously obsessed with this place. My favorites are cauliflower, burrata and the wild boar. Every person I have introduced to this restaurant has loved it. I can't wait to go back!

Authentic Italian all around!
Great local Italian restaurant that has delicious, authentic cuisine served by REAL Italians. The menu offers a good balance of familiar favorites and more unique regional dishes. Among our favorites was the tortelloni filled with asparagus in a light tomato cream sauce. The wine list includes a number of good regional Italian varietals, as well. Quaint interior works for either a nicer family dinner or a date night. The best part was that we could actually carry on a conversation. It was a welcome change from the other commoditized and noisy eateries in the area.

Great place - food and service !
Delizie is a small Italian place that looks unassuming. Their food and serivce are outstanding. It is one of the only places in the Bay Area that takes me back to memories of southern Italy. This is not surprizing because the owners are from a small town south of Positano. We have enjoyed many of the amazing homemade pastas: current favs include porchini mushroom tagletelle and also orchiette with lamb ragu. The second courses are also great. It has become our go to place for a quiet romantic evening. There is some outdoor seating for those who like their al dente pasta alfresco .
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Deserving of your attention
Delizie has been offering delicious fresh food and friendly informed service to the public for lunch and dinner for about a year. I'm advising all of you to not wait any longer. This is a family-owned establishment that offers fresh meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes created from local produce and homemade pasta. The portions were described by our server as medium, but I found them to be very generous (large). The dessert menu is a must to at least drool over. The chocolate mousse looked heavy, but tasted as light as air. I will definitely return soon for dinner as the wine list was also enticing.

Delizie is my newly found
Delizie is my newly found own little slice of heaven! I leave here and dream of the delectable dishes for days on after. This was our second time here, we were greeted at the door with 'Welcome back's.
On our first visit I tried the Pappardelle Al Cinghiale, the pasta was so fresh and out of this world. A tomato meat sauce of wild boar, it was so warm and homey yet sophisticated. My boyfriend had the Gnocchi Di Mare. The gnocchi was incredible, I'd say both dishes were a must try to understand the expertise in the kitchen. I also tried the Scalloppine Al Limone, my favorite dish of all time, I will now not order it elsewhere.
Right beside the overwhelming Laurel st, Delizie is quiet, romantic and two steps above it's competitors.

This was the best southern
This was the best southern Italian food we have ever eaten in any Northern California restaurant. It was a wonderful surprise.
The cooking was flawless as was the service. We can't await for another opportunity to return.

The service could use some
The service could use some polishing and overall etiquette. Our server approached the table and said ok, ready? No, welcome to Delizie, may I bring you something to drink and answer any questions you may have about the menu? Food was very good.

This is my second visit here with my wife.
Food is very authentic, fresh and unique. Service is excellent and manager is very charming.
We were not rush and enjoyed our anniversary's dinner. They are all family and makes you feel like at home. A small amazing restaurant in San Carlos. So far the best italian I ever tried in the bay area. Great spot for foodie people :))

Italy in San Carlos
Excellent meal. I had bacala ( cod stew ) and my girlfriend had the porcine mushroom hand made pasta. 1 word OUSTANDING!!!
Remember to save some room for the bitter chocolate mousse, to die for it!! So far the best italian restaurant in the bay area.
Service is great and very friendly with a nice and simple decor; reminds to me Italy when I was in Navona square in Rome. Small place but extremely authentic. Can't wait to go back.

A pleasantly surprising menu
A pleasantly surprising menu (not your standard mid-range Italian fare) and high quality execution. Very pretty presentations and staff that wants you to enjoy the visit. It's the little restaurant that could!
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Delizie is a hidden gem Italian restaurant. The owners are from southern Italy and not only is the food amazing, but they really make you feel as if you are in the south of Italy. Each time we go there we order something different off the menu, and everytime we are poeasantly suprised at how amazing there selection is. If you are looking for good Italian food, this is the place!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
This is the best italian restaurant that I've been to. The food is great; I had the special of the day home made pasta with jack rabbit ragout and it was melting in my mouth. My waiter was very attentive and suggested a nice wine to with it, a glass of dolcetto.
I will definitely bring all my family here, this is a great spot for foodie people and so glad I tried this restaurant. They also offered to me a nice digestive home made with almonds. Can't wait to go back :))

Fantastic Service and Fabulous Food
Fantastic find on Open Table - the service (all family) was excellent - very engaging and made the ordering and dining experience exceptional. The food was true to Northern Italy - delicious!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Small in Size but Big in Quality
Delizie reminds me of the small neighborhood restaurants in Italy. The owners and staff are Italian so you are greeted with "Buona Sera" when you arrive and they are happy to converse in Italian if you are so inclined. The food is very good, portions are fair and service excellent. San Carlos is abundant with good Italian restaurants but Delizie provides a sort of intimacy that most don't deliver.

Distinct Italian Cuisine!
May we strongly recommend this restaurant to you? We were looking for Italian food. Hubby was craving for spaghetti and meatballs. We requested for a table away from the main walkway. They totally accommodated! Reviewing the menu, there wasn't any spaghetti and meatballs but... There were unusual items that called to be ordered. Rather than order a full dinner, we ordered 4 appetizer plates. Notables: Speck e robiola crostini, Melanzane Ripiene, Pappardelle Al Cinghiale and dessert: Torta Della Nonna.
We'll be back! Service was excellent. Wine and sodas only - no full bar.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tried this new restaurant because friend of mine recommended. I am so happy that I did, my whole family is from italy. The food is fresh and authentic. The orecchiette with lamb ragù is AMAZING!! My husband had the branzini italian seabass special of the day and was the best white fish I ever had. Best espresso ever and cute waiters all italians. If you are in The peninsula try this gem, you won't be disappointed. I will be back!
