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 wait for my table 30 minutes!. Open table need to do a better job communicating with the restaurant before making reservations to customers. Delfina was very nice to apologies for the wait time and the food was amazing.

Outside street dining with Burlingame Ave blocked off to vehicle traffic. The pizzas, tricolor salad, soft serve ice
Cream and duck ragu pasta were all very good. Excellent service.

I am a long-time fan of Delfina. I was especially excited to dine in a safe, well sanitized environment during these challenging times. The Burlingame location set up a tasteful and inviting outdoor dining experience that I would hope could remain as a permanent feature. The service was extremely courteous and competent, and the staff did everything it could to ensure our satisfaction. The food was well prepared and delicious, as usual. Defina executes its menu well and consistently. I'm thrilled we can once again enjoy this wonderful establishment. Hats off to its owners.

We were surrounded of 1 party celebration that does not practice social distances & some of their party members socializing behind, besides & all around our table. They occupied 5 tables out of 8 (we’re the 8tables). It’s not safe for us to be too close for comfort & health to be exposed with this pandemic concern & watch. Literally, these people are 2-3’ away from our socially interacting together. I have to say excuse me to couple of teenagers coughing & talking behind me. Very disappointed but, the food was good.
If we didn’t order yet, will definitely leave & not come back.

I don’t know what happened to Delfina Burlingame, but it went from good food / ok service to bad food and bad service in the last year or more. They over-salt EVERYTHING. They don’t have flavors anymore because salt crowds out all flavors. Yesterday we went to Delfina because I saw that they had the special of orecchiette pasta with broccolini and fennel sausage, but they were out. Instead they had, what the waitress called “ravioli “. Another staff member called it agnolotti . It was neither of those things. It was small sheets of pasta folded over, stuffed with a pinhead amount of awful tasting filling and hastily closed up. It was cooked in a hideous tasting white greasy sauce. It did not resemble either a ravioli or an agnolotti. The filling was certainly not nearly the amount that those would contain. It tasted quite awful. They used to have balanced and pleasant flavors before, but now it is just plane, over-salted, bad food. I have been going there for 3+ years, but I am done. It is officially the avoid at any cost list.

The service is no better. The staff member who set out table held the water glasses by the rim (where you drink from) as he was setting the table. It is March 2020, the height of corona virus scare. Do they not train the staff???

I will stop here, even though these were not the only negative experiences in this visit and a previous visit.

We made a special effort to go back again for lunch on a recent return overnight connection while staying at a nearby SFO airport hotel - well worth the Uber rides. The food is super fresh, well prepared and quite tasty. Clark is on his game as the top server while we sat at the bar each time. While we don’t know their names, we were able to watch the kitchen staff given the open kitchen layout and couldn’t help seeing the obvious care and dedication to a craft not just folks punching a clock for a paycheck. Only wish we didn’t live across the country or we would certainly be regulars!

The food was great, however on the day we went (Valentine's day), the service was lacking. The waitress did not check up on us very often and we had to wait almost an hour for our pizza. I believe they actually forgot to make our pizza because we saw people who got there after us get their pizza before us, but the waitress tried to blame it on the fact that it was Valentine's day. Fortunately, she did comp our pizza, which was a nice gesture. I understand Valentine's is a busy night, but that doesn't excuse bad service. Overall, was disappointed given the special occasion. Likely will not be back to this location.

Gabino was my serveur. I ordered the delicious gnocchi al ragu. Only complaint portions are smaller here than most places. Service needs to brush up. I asked for a spoon from the lady that brought my plate. She disappeared & never came back. I asked another girl for a spoon "Of course." She too never came back. Finally I told the guy "You are the third person I have asked for a spoon." I got a spoon. Should NEVER have to go this far! Happy to go across the street Salt & Straw for ice cream & hot fudge. Delfina SF had an amarena sundae no more.

$15. Chianti-the only one on the menu, and $4 7oz. sodas. Drinks were 26% of the cost of our meal. Good food. We’ll drink tap water next time.

Cozy Italian restaurant in your neighborhood of Burlingame!
I visited there for a casual business lunch. Server's attention was appropriate and not too disruptive. Food was as expected.

Enjoyed dinner after airport on a Week night. Took a long while to get our drinks after ordering. Salad and meatballs were very good and took the pizza home which came later our table was a tight two top eked into a corner of the large dining room. There seemed to be a lot of openings so didn’t understand why we couldn’t have a larger table. Otherwise it was good and convenient.

Chuyi was my server but seemed like both the ladies working that day were helping each other. I ordered the cauliflower soup & Margherita. Both were delicious. Might be nice if you could also have the white waxy take-out boxes and the pizza boxes. I took a few slice of the pizza to go. Both pizza boxes are so big. I got the smaller pizza box but still kind of clumsy to walk around with. Other than that food was good!

Perhaps I was expecting an experience like Pizza Delfina on 18th Street in SF which is why I was disappointed in the experience. Tables are 8-10” apart and we were surrounded by screaming children. While the food was good, the value was not there because of the environment.

When we fly out of SFO we visit here. The mozzarella to start with the arugula is great. The little gem salad with green goddess dressing is a great share. Pizza is to your preference. We did the fennel sausage and added hen of the woods mushrooms. A great pie and very light and airy crust.
