The reviews are not wrong. Wonderful food and wonderful service. Definitely a repeat visit is needed. You won’t be disappointed.
Excellent food! Everything was delicious.
Ozzie and sal are the men. Great service every time. Great specials food is amazing! Go Cowboys!
Amazing food and impeccable service from Raul. Overall excellent experience. We will be back!
A reliable go-to for authentic Italian fare. My wife and I each had one of their pasta & seafood dishes, and both were delicious. Our waitress provided terrific service, and was very helpful making menu recommendations.
Excellent desserts, and a small but varied and high quality wine list.
The hostess looked very much like she wanted to be ANYWHERE but at the restaurant, which isn't a great way to make a first impression on your diners, but the rest of the experience more than made up for it. I hope she's having a better day today.
This is a very nice restaurant. However, it is nothing special
And the food was just ok. I ordered the fish grigliata it was a combo of shrimp (2), scallop (1), salmon (1) and sea bass(1). For $32, it was a very meager portion. The shrimp and scallop were good, as was the salmon. The sea bass was a bit tough but otherwise flavorful. I asked for double veggies instead of potatoes and veggies. If I got a double portion, I would be very surprised. This entire dish was just nothing to write home about and seemed overcooked. The veggies appeared to come from a package of frozen veggies as opposed to fresh. My friend ordered the lasagne and she said it was excellent, with a portion large enough to provide her with takeaway. All in all, it just was not a good enough experience for me to consider going out of my way to return. Perhaps they do a better job on the pastas than fish, but it don’t know that I am interested in finding out.
Excellent service and food, Thanks Raul
This is our favorite Italian restaurant. Coming from the East Coast good Italian food is hard to find. The food and service are exceptional and they can make anything you want. It doesn't have to be on the menu. The prices are reasonable and the quality is excellent.
Fish was way over cooked. The other dishes were great.
First time visiting this restaurant and enjoyed immensely the food, cocktails, wine and desserts!
Carlos and Juan were providing best service.
Thank you, we will return!
I have now been to Delizie a number of times and the food never fails. The servers have all been very personable and good at what they do. It's an all around good place to go if you enjoy well prepared food, good Service and a nice unpretentious atmosphere.
Food was so yummy!
I had the special sow cooked ribs and risotto. Amazing!!
All my friends had to have a taste at the table and said I won on best dish. It was a very nice portion and for a special $38 for the entree was reasonable comparatively.
Great place, first time there and the food and service was excellent! Will be back many times.
Overall this place is consistently good. Inside the acoustics aren’t great and gets very loud, so when possible opt for outside seating if you want to be able to talk. I would have given a 5 star this last visit but regretfully I couldn’t. A patron who had little consideration for others brought two dogs and one one couldn’t stop barking at waiters and other patrons. It was simply annoying and unnecessary. Staff should have asked this patron to remove the dog.
Food was good. Service was okay. Will we be back? Maybe, if there’s nothing else open.
We recently "discovered" Delizie through reviews on Open Table. We've been there 4 times now and have enjoyed our meals every time. Last night my husband and I both had the surf and turf special and it was very good.
Delizie is the true neighborhood dining place.
Staff is always pleasant, food amazing...and they remember their customers!
The food tasted excellent and the service was great! Great place for a relaxing Friday night date in your neighborhood.
Food is always consistently good, the crowd is lively and the specials are fresh!
Love the restaurant and it remains to be a Mission Viejo favorite.
Best food best servicd
Great service. Great food.
Food was very good but service was average. Lots going on even though restaurant was almost empty. Men in and out of the kitchen. Lots of banging on the walls. Must be renovating.
We were really excited for brunch on Father’s Day, and when we got there at 1 o’clock they ran out of breakfast. We ordered from the dinner menu and it was good. Service was OK, they had two waiters and one hostess for a very overcrowded restaurant.
Service and food was delicious!! Cioppino and Tortellacci Al Formaggio E Spinaci were absolutely amazing! We love coming to Delizie.
Nothing unusual. Just great as always! Our go-to restaurant.
Other reviewers were right—it is very loud! Fortunately, we got a table on the patio and had a nice, quiet anniversary dinner. The food is delicious and the service was excellent.
This is the first time we were there since it opened for dine in. The food remains excellent with a varied menu & the service was great.
We have been for dinner and breakfast and both are excellent. It’s a real nice neighborhood place with great food and great and friendly service!
First time there. Will go again
Have been coming here for years. The food is always great and the special dishes can really be something special. On our most recent visit my wife ordered the lamb osso-buco special and I ordered the lobster and shrimp fettuccine special. Both were delicious! The service was, as usual, excellent. We asked for a table on the back patio as it quieter out there than inside.
The food in general was very basic and the pasta over done. For sure not recommended for the price level. There are so many other better options out there. We were a party of six and no one had a good thing to say about the food. Never again...
Fathers birthday. We come here at least once a week, off night, service as usual was great, food was off. Each of our dishes was just off, no flavor, under cooked, or over cooked. We will be back, we know this is not the norm!
Outstanding service! Food was off the charts fantastic. One of our guests described the salmon as the best restaurant salmon ever. My pork chop wrapped in prosciutto was crazy delicious. They also have one bottle no corkage!!! Can't beat the best kept Italian restaurant secret in Mission Viejo!!
Sat on the rear patio where it’s much quieter. It’s too noisy indoors since they remodeled & removed the divider around the bar. Had a great waitress & food was delicious!
Nice neighbor restaurant. Excellent service and food value. Nice nightly specials. Very enjoyable dinner. Highly recommend.
Food and service were excellent love the atmosphere
They did a great job on Mother's Day Brunch! During Covid I find there are winners and losers as it relates to dining and adapting and Delizie is definitely a winner. Adapted their seating, broadened their day part to include brunch and food is consistently good plus specials.
Delicious dinner options and perfect house merlot.
Always enjoy dinner at Delizie’s. Their pasta dishes and steak entrees are phenomenal.
The bread and green sauce served at the beginning of the meal is fresh and tasty. A great starter especially when you come hungry.
I have dinner at Delizie’s once a week and have never been disappointed.
I would like to try their pizzas soon... but can’t seem to break my Eggplant Parmesan or Filet Mignon orders.
