The best pizza! Salads are a treat as they include a variety of ingredients based on the season. Because of a special, I ordered a starter--grilled cauliflower--which turned out to be mushy and floating in a bed of white something. Not good. First time I've had something not so good at Delia's. For a Saturday night, it was slow when we arrived, but then picked up. Happy to see the restaurant doing well. A crowd but not noisy. Families with children, singles at bar, older couples--a pleasant mix representing the neighborhood. Cordial maitre'd' and server, Silvana, is terrific.

The short rib gnocchi and salmon are absolutely amazing. As are their pizzas, calamari, and, of course, their famous Greek salad dressing.

Cocktails were overly sweet and uninspired. Lettuce in the Greek salad was chopped like it belonged on a taco and FLOODED with dressing. Cauliflower appetizer was bizarre with the purée. The overall service was really bad even though the place was mostly empty on a Friday night. The only enjoyable parts of the meal were the welcoming reception from the host and decent pizza.

Chef Chad did it again with his Chef’s Choice pasta that had shrimp and lobster in a white wine sauce. His sauce was perfect with just the right touch of butter, shallots, and spices. But the sweet, melt in your mouth lobster was just superb!!! His seafood is always prepared perfectly, never over or under cooked, but this dish was over the top! Thank you Chef Chad for another out of the park home run! The great service was another high point to a very enjoyable experience!

Came for brunch. Host and hostess were both pleasant and seated us right away. Our waiter was great - timing and attention were right on.

We started with roasted cauliflower app and small Greek salad. Both were delicious. You’d think something as simple as a Greek salad couldn’t be special but this was really good.

Also ordered the bucatini pasta cacio y pepe and the salmon Benedict. Again - both were so delicious. We also had drinks - the Angelaaa (and I enjoyed the waiter’s pronunciation) and the other had brandy and ginger beer but I forget the name. Again, both were lovely.

We enjoyed our food, drinks and the staff was awesome.

First-time visitors. Very satisfied. Decent beer selection. Friendly service. Food was tasty and priced well. Menu has decent options for vegetarians. Not sure it's great for vegan or gluten-free options though, as most of the vegetarian options are pasta and pizza dishes. Would love to see more heartier salad options for vegetarians/vegans.

Delia's is a real gem!! The food is extremely flavorful and overall excellent. Their pastas are homemade and delicious. The pizza knuckles and squash ravioli are my favorites.
The cocktails are creative, tasty and very reasonably priced and they have happy hour 7 days a week!
The whole staff is very friendly including the waitresses, chef , bartender and manager.
I've been many times since they opened (for lunch, happy hour, dinner). Every time has consistently been great!

Delicious homemade pastas and pizza. Granted we were there at 5:30 pm on a Sunday, but it was nice and quiet for conversation, even with football on the tv screens. Service was very attentive. We were too full for dessert but cocktails were great. It's as close to me as Shirlington but the parking was easier! I've found my neighborhood place!

The food was delicious. Excellent pizza and the appetizer was fabulous. Service was terrible...waiter in a hurry then disappeared completely. Check inaccurate and the manager forgot to bring back our credit card after we paid (no waiter to be found so the manager dealt with the bill.) Place was very noisy.

Wow!!! Best service I have received in the longest time. The owner came by the table and greeted us. The server was attentive and expedient, she was by far one of the best I have experienced in the area.

Our food was perfectly prepared, but the best part was that Chef Chad brought us the meals.

Definitely will be eating here more often.

Food was okay. Service was over-solicitous before we got served, then a little slow afterwards. In a city now brimming with good dining options, I'd still go here if I needed a fast meal in the neighborhood, but it wouldn't be my first choice all in all.

The calamari was excellent. The short rib gnocchi dish was decent, but definitely not worth the price. If I’m going to pay $20+ for a pasta dish, I would expect a much better wine list. The waitress was very sweet but still appeared to be learning the ropes. Overall, my experience was okay. I’d go back out of convenience, not for the food.

This Arlington branch of the Alexandria restaurant just opened June 2018 and is a great addition to area dining. It's clear that there is considerable confusion between the two locations, including the listing of the Arlington restaurant as participating in the Alexandria restaurant week--it wasn't. The waiter said that confusion happens often with food delivery as well.

Regardless, this was a great place for dining. There's an outdoor section which, even with temps in the 80s, was quite pleasant. The inside seemed a bit too cool. We went with the 11" pizza and the appetizer Pei mussels for our main course, and had Saganaki and a salad as appetizers. The Greek Saganaki grilled cheese (in an iron skillet) with lemon juice was excellent, even better than in another fully Greek restaurant where we'd eaten previously. The Pei mussels in white wine sauce were good, though I would have preferred more sauce to give flavor to the mussels. The Gustoso pizza was a thick crust, so much better than the thin ones you tend to get in restaurants.

Wines are a bit pricey, starting around $34 and up from there, for regular wines: e.g., Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc sells for $11.99 in stores and was $49 here. But with a bottle of wine and our meals with tax but not tip, our total was just under $100.

Great local place to eat.

We did not have a great experience at Delia's. We ordered the trio of spreads (tzatziki, harissa, and fava salata) which was very overpriced at $16 considering the very small amount of each, and not very good, save for the harissa which was about average tasting. The sangria was also not great and the fruit in it was just bar fruit (maraschino cherry, lime wedge). Also, we ordered drinks during happy hour but the bill didn't reflect the price for all those drinks so we had to send the bill back which we hate to do. Finally, the pizza was very bready and not very flavorful - akin to cafeteria pizza. The only positives about the pizza were the marinated portobello on top which tasted good and the slight burn to the crust which is actually pleasant. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant and we left feeling like we'd wasted our money and the calories on a very underwhelming experience.
