Jenna was great. My wife wanted Fettuccine Alfredo which was not on the menu. They made it happen.

The bone-in pork chop special was out of this world!! Our server, Jenna, was a delight and we have been lucky enough to have her on a few occasions. Note to Management, Jenna is a jewel!!

I would highly recommend this restaurant, as the food was spectacular, from the brad with sauce, to the calamari to the rigatoni entree.

Very Expensive food. We agreed the food taste good. However, you must figure that it is 2 times the price of Olive Garden. Portions are smaller. Ambiance is nothing spectacular. No free salad. Bread is ok. We rank a restaurant on our probability of going out of our way and return. The probability of going back to this restaurant is zero.

We are frequent visitors and never disappointed. Food is prepared with care and the service is always outstanding. The new owner is making some nice changes to the look of the space while still keeping the look of the neighborhood restaurant.

Great place. Since my last visit the white table cloths are gone. Made it a little classier. Food is awesome. Bar (happy hour) was noisy that night with football on.

We were having dinner with our daughter from NYC. Carlos was an excellent, attentive waiter....not intrusive!
The food as always was delicious, well prepared & nicely presented.

Our only issue with Delize is the noise level.....but it’s people having a good time, so we keep coming back.
(We were offered the private room off to the side, but the vibes felt good when we walked. )

Great to see Delize so busy on a summer evening!!

Great food and spectacular service. Carlos made us feel comfortable as if we were his guests for dinner. Truly appreciate the weekly specials, but most of us selected the chef’s special or a tried-and-true favorite from the menu. Love the surf and turf on Wednesday and the spaghetti and meat balls Sunday special. Good wine choices. Only slight bummer was the noise level was a little high, enough that it was often hard to hear the person sitting across the table. FIVE STARS!

This restaurant makes us so happy! The food, service, cocktails, etc are just perfection! It really should be Michelin rated. My goodness we have enjoyed such memorable meals at this delightful local Mission Viejo restaurant. Everything is top notch. The cocktails are exquisite and handcrafted. The food is fresh and mind blowing. We love Ozzy! He provides great service and is just so attentive and kind!! Here are some suggestions: crab cakes, burrata, any kind of martini, the filet, eggplant parm, pizzas, any of the chicken dishes!! Plus, there is no corkage fee for the first bottle of wine. That is a major plus in my book! Long live Delizie!!

What a gem for weekend breakfast! I'm torn between raving, which will bring more people, and keeping quiet so as not to make it crowded. I've been there twice recently for breakfast on the weekend and could not be more pleased. Great food, service and value. Stunned there are not more people there, but appreciate that it's not loud and busy.

Fresh burrata salad with shaved fennel, tomato
and arugula was excellent.
Lobster filled cannelloni with the most wonderful creamy sauce. Spicy shrimp and angel hair pasta was enjoyed by my husband and our daughter enjoyed
Shrimp in a lemon herb sauce and roasted potatoes and veggies.
Yum!

Went for cioppino and it was good but not as excellent as the other eating for this restaurant seem to be.

The menu felt a little dated as did the interior: much more neighborhood disguised as fine dining.

Price was fair and service friendly. Overall good but not exciting

The meal was excellent. We had no idea the place existed! It was loud because of live music performed two feet away from our table but I’m not complaining. I would definitely go back with our friends again.

Very impressed with the food and the ambiance. Service was great, too - we stayed there talking until we realized there was no other customers, and that they had technically closed 30 minutes earlier. Nobody rushed us or said anything at all about having to go. Wonderful restaurant, great food, great staff. Thank you Delizie!

IT was a very local spot..maybe the most traditional Italian restaurant in the location! Service was ok, better to not assume someone's age in the service industry. Ask for ID if you want to be specific.

Delizie has become our GO-TO Italian restaurant over the past 5 years, and it's because of their execution both in the kitchen and serving. If you want something modified from the menu, no problem! If you have a hankering for something off the menu- no problem, they'll cook it up for you. Three of us modified our orders and they all came out perfect.
My husband loves Shrimp fra Diablo, but Delizie's has crab in it too, he asked for no crab - no problem - the dish arrived exactly as ordered. It was fabulous
The other couple wanted double veggies and no potatoes on their entreec - no problem - their dishes arrived exactly as ordered. Both of them cleaned their plates
I got my usual Eggplant Parm - no changes! And it too was perfect.
Don't forget the pizza, it is also delicious, but we were eating the bread on the table so that was enough carbs. They've improved the bread, it used to be Wonder Bread-like, it's more authentic now.
We come here for the food, but the service is great as well. Make a reservation or arrive after 7:30 when things slow down. The noise level is HUGE at 6:30, but manageable after 7:30 on a Saturday night.
