"Delizie" meaning delicious, is an enthusiastic endeavor to preserve sacred family traditions & bring delight to peoples’ plates far beyond Italy's borders. Hailing from Calabria, the infamous "toe" of the Italian peninsula where the mountains meet a breathtaking coastline, owner Francesco Ruggiero brings to life the richness of this southern region's culinary heritage, introducing & reacquainting others with an irresistible array of savory flavors & vibrant aromas. Using a combination of carefully selected imports & fresh, locally grown ingredients, you can indulge to your heart's desire in a variety of homemade pastas & traditional dishes. To render the meal complete pair your food with an appealing wine from a list featuring Italian & Californian wines that best suit your palate. The restaurant itself maintains a cozy, relaxed, yet elegant feel that invites others to join in the ambience that comes to life when the simplest things are brought to the table: good food, wine & people.

Thank you to all the staff for accommodating our family's party annual reunion.
From the service to the amazing foo "nothing to say."
Our family really enjoyed the wild boar sauce over fresh made pasta and the salmon sauce over farfalle.

Our waiter Rubio I think was par excellent plus, the taste value for $$ was below average
I would suggest improving the presentation, quality of food . Loved the place and ambiance but after spending nearly $88 per head for dinner would have expected better!

Overall, we had a positive experience. There were five of us and we were discussing business besides social matters. We were afraid that the restaurant might be too small and might not provide us any privacy to discuss business. Fortunately, the restaurant people were able to join two tables by the window and offer that to us and this made it ideal for our purpose. Also, the window was the best location at the restaurant on that bright and sunny evening. Service is very good as is the food.

We went there for dinner very exited with all the stars and great reviews. This is by far one of the worst Italian food we have ever had. Pasta with red sauce was out of a can tomato sauce. Their special pasta dish with ham and creamy tomato sauce was disgusting. The veal was chewy and 4 pieces the size of a quarter with a tase less Marsala sauce. Salad was good. Cod was with too much tomato sauce. Is so sad that we can’t even trust the reviews:( will never go back again.

I took my husband there for his birthday dinner and it was delicious! Great wine selection! The service was excellent! They sang happy birthday to my husband which was very nice! The desserts were to die for! We started off with appetizers and both enjoyed our Entrées! Everything was prepared to perfection and served beautifully on the correct plates!
We will definitely go back and try something different next time! In fact I jokingly said when we left the restaurant, that we wanted to sit at the same table number 13, we need a standing reservation! I highly recommend!

Best meal ever! Nice Italian trattoria comfort food
Both sauces were amazing and cooked with lots of flavor, my wife and I had the lamb sauce house made strozzaprete and salmon ragout bow tie pasta, both top notch. Great choice of reds by the glass, since I am a lover of Brunello was able to order by the glass which is a plus :))

The flavor is ordinary, nothing special. I cook better than them. The wine in Spaghetti Imperiali was not cooked off. It was the predominating flavor.

Cute, intimate setting -- this is a great place for a group no larger than 4. We went on a weeknight and the food was fantastic. While the pasta dishes were all excellent (from the mushroom risotto to the gnocchi to the spicy penne), the cod stew was a bit salty. Still, the bread was warm and ambience very inviting.

I posted a longer review on yelp, but in summary the restaurant was cold and drafty, the bread was not fresh, the pasta was far too al dente (chewy), some of the green beans were spoiled, and the good flavors in the sauce and filling on the tortelloni did not make up for the other details. Our expectations were high, given the reviews and prices, but our experience was undistinguished.

Delizie is a cozy restaurant - a bit cramped for space, but the space is reasonably well managed. We had their Monday night "special," which was billed as being of ample portion - perhaps this is true for the distaff visitors, but an additional 25% to 30% for male patrons would be nice. On the plus side, though, the "special" was quite delicious. I do recommend the restaurant.
