Italian
Inspired by the best pizza of New York City and Naples, Italy. In 2005, Annie and Craig Stoll annexed the space next door to their James Beard Award winning Delfina restaurant fulfilling a long time dream of bringing Neapolitan-inspired pizzas to San Francisco. The 600 square foot space was an instant neighborhood hotspot, and Pizzeria Delfina became the ""darling of the San Francisco food scene"" opening a second location in 2008 to popular demand. In December 2013, Annie and Craig expanded into the Peninsula with Pizzeria Delfina in Burlingame. This energetic, farmers-to-table restaurant serves up Neapolitan-inspired pizza complemented by a daily-changing roster of seasonal antipasti, piatti (small entrees), beer, wine and more. A family-owned business, Pizzeria Delfina is a neighborhood establishment through and through that continues to bring people together around fresh, handmade, delicious food in a warm, casual atmosphere.

I have been to Delfina Burlingame twice in the last month. Both times with a group of people therefore ordering a variety of pizzas. The inconsistency is difficult to handle. Both times there is one or more pizza that is not prepared and cooked properly. I understand there is difficulty in hiring qualified help. However, an overseer that has experience is necessary for continued success in a business.

outdoor seating for a party of four was not in the enclosed area protected from the cold while we did request such outdoor seating even though there were two such tables available. no heater in the seating area as well.

Pizzeria Delfina sent us an email advertising fried chicken during the weekend. We made reservations to try it out. It is a 30 minute drive from our house and we planned accordingly. When we arrived and ordered the chicken, they said they did not ah e it anymore. This is extremely disappointing as they advertised this and sent an email about the special. If they are going to do this, they should plan to have plenty of portions and extra in case. They should know people would go there for the special in their email. This was poor planning and they could not offer any solutions.

Made a reservation for 12:15 but wasn’t seated until 12:45. Pizza was good but not as good as the SF counterparts.

I know finding servers are hard right now. But these employees or managers didn’t care at all about the customers. Others tables were complaining as well. It was just so bad. The pizza was awesome which was good and why we love delfina but good god the service is beyond terrible. My suggestion would be to operate cafeteria style. Clearly there is not enough staff. So just have customers order and seat themselves. Why offer a full service if there is no service. The food is good s

It's our go-to for gluten free pizza! The crust is amazing. Be sure to try the Napolitana. A terrific salt bomb!

The salads, burrata and meatballs were all superb. Also had the green garlic soup which was unusual and delicious. We had an indoor table with open windows so it felt as safe as outdoor dining. We will be back!

Pizzas were so soggy there was a pool of liquid in the center. My beverage order was forgotten. Kids pizza actually cost more than a pizza for adults?? Go figure.

Service has totally gone downhill. Very unorganized and took way too long. Food is still delicious but hard to enjoy when cramped outside by parking meters, plants and tables from restaurant next door.

First time dinning indoors after over a year. Place was not packed and well ventilated social distancing was enforced and mask was also worn by servers and people. The menu was limited maybe cuz of covid. Meal was good.
