Review is for the restaurant in the back, it is a neighborhood place, pizza parlor in the front, restaurant in the back. Food outstanding, service can be a little slow, but like the trattoria type ambiance. Now
that this gem has been discovered, wise to make reservations

Love the piano player that comes in at 7pm. Nice to have a conversation with my family, vs. have them just watch a TV (there's NO TVs there). Love the pasta, so I tried the chicken special (Pollo Picante) and it was SO good. If you walk in through 2nd ave, just remember to go all the way to the back room!

This is a pizza place with a back dining room. The dining room is very pleasant and they have a piano player on Friday nights which was lovely. We were there to celebrate my friend's birthday and neither of us had been to this restaurant in many years although we both live in the neighborhood. While looking at the menu, my friend asked if they could bring us some bread and butter. We were told we could not get that until after we had placed our orders.... "that is their rule." The menu had the usual fare although not as many choices as other Italian restaurants in the area. The prices were also a bit higher than most places and if you wanted a vegetable instead of pasta on some of the orders, that would be an additional price. Changing from one sauce to another was also an additional price. When we got our main courses, both of us were happy as our choices were good. After dinner, we both ordered desert and coffee. When I asked if I could get some more coffee in my cup, I was told they don't do that. I would have to place an order for another cup of coffee. I guess our impression was that they were being chintzy. Perhaps they want us in and out asap to free another table... or perhaps they just don't have a good customer service policy and don't care if people decide to come back or not. There are many restaurants in the area with good to excellent food. One would also expect a friendlier attitude towards potential repeat customers. I noticed they did not post a confirmation of our having been there so I called several times without any results. It took them 3 more days to do that. My friend says she will definitely never go back there. I was just frustrated by their "rules" and the way they handled everything.

Delizia 92 is a neighborhood gem, have been going there for a number of years. Food is great
ambiance is relaxed and it welcomes families. The front of the restaurant is a regular pizza
parlor and takeout, but the back is a cute little restaurant with tablecloths and waiter service.
They also do parties. As a head up, lately I needed to make reservations especially around the 6 pm time frame, I guess the gem has been discovered. Keep up the good work.

Enjoyed dinner here very much. The entrance to the dining room is around the corner from the pizza part of the restaurant which we found a little confusing at first. Small dining room but very nice. Food was really good - all the typical Italian choices, but all were definitely better than the norm. They also have daily specials which we tried - again delicious! Service also very good!!

Good Italian food, but not outstanding. However the "Bomba" combination chocolate & vanilla ice cream in a chocolate crust is a highly recommended dessert (even if a bit difficult to handle with a spoon since it is spherical).
The biggest surprise is the nightly quite good live jazz music, with no price premium on the food or any cover charge. Worth a visit, especially for a special occasion, or a date. When the musicians are playing, it is difficult to hold a conversation, because the space is quite small. Reservations are therefore highly recommended.

Either they were understaffed or the wait staff did not care about service. Outside of putting down plates they were elsewhere or otherwise unavailable. I have been going to this restaurant for more than 10 years, if it were my first time I would never go back.

We love this restaurant. The service is kind. The food is yummy. The menu is great. The prices are fair. The location of the dining room has had very little to look out at, had to put up with one construction project after the other in the area, but still provides a classy, cozy feel.
