Pizzeria Delfina Burlingame
If the special Pizza with Speck, Greens and Fonita is on the menu, grab it. It is a winner. A Tricolore salad is perfect with it. Two of us finished the pizza (I couldn't resist 3 pieces) and half the salad. The waiter was fun and attentive.
Not the first time here and have experienced many glitches in service each time. Many young people are running the place. I asked for lemons for my water and they were never brought until I asked again. Came in on another occasion for take out and sat inside at the front waiting. No One told me it was ready and it sat in their warming oven till I called it to their attention I had been sitting for over 20 mins for a pizza to go.
Got food illness from the meatballs. Second time this has happened. I suppose it’s my fault for ordering them again. Fool me once...
I’ve enjoyed many meals at Delfina across the peninsula. This was not the best experience. Food was good but new pasta dish (pesto) was not at the level expected. In fact no one could take a second bite! That’s not typical for all their yummy traditional dishes.
Service was very poor. Drinks were served quickly by a bar person and I mean quickly. After a long delay waiting for them she rushed to our table practically slamming the glasses of wine on the table. It was rude and abrupt!
That continued when we wanted a second glass.
Our wait person seemed flustered with the heavy crowd and couldn’t manage to see we didn’t touch the bad pasta dish. Oh well, it won’t keep me from returning but hope the staff gets their team up to the food level (or at least what it has been!).
This is always a great place to get special pizzas and pastas. Weather permitting, eating outside is perfect and a bit European.
The items are in police oil “soup”. Who needs that much oil? The salads weren’t particularly distinctive. And the server and helpers kept saying they’d bring water and kept bring it to other tables. I got up and begged the hostess, who was checking her phone emails.
Now I know why my SF friends say that our beloved Delfinas don’t transpose to Burlingame.
Food is always great. You can't miss coming here
Went for dinner during the Burlingame festival. Ordered the chopped salad which was good but smaller than expected. Cherry pie pizza special was delicious! Funghi pizza was good too. I tried to use my $10 Opentable rewards but the waitress said it didn't go thru so she credited our salad.
Food quality was not as good as previous visits. Pizza was soggy, not so tasty, as were the meatballs
Great service. Pizza spectacular. Wonderful wine selections.
The backyard patio is nice and less noisy than inside. Good to gather with friends and catch up over lunch. Their pies are good but there's not much variety.
We went there on a Sunday afternoon having made late reservations on OpenTable. We sat outside on a nice sunny day. The sun umbrellas provided good protection from the sharp sun that afternoon and the service was attentive and timely. Food was particularly good - we had a couple of their artisinal wood-fired pizzas, which is hard to find for pizza lovers.
Fabulous dinner, service, and food. We love delfina!!
Limited menu, no kids options. Was ok but not raving about it.
Have been here several times. Food is great. Service excellent. Noise level from the music being played too loud and almost unbearable. Management needs to listen to their customers about this. There are 2 other pizza places just across the street.
Service was excellent. We ordered just enough food which always a good sign. It had been a few years since we’ve been back. Not sure if things changed slightly but the food was not how we remembered it to be.
Delfina never disappoints. Great food and great service
Best pizza in the bay are
Dining at Delfina Burlingame feels like eating at a well-catered outdoor picnic. It's always lively, people are in close proximity, and with the kitchen so visible and the wait staff always in attendance, you can see your food coming. The fare itself high-quality, artisanal and heavy on pizza as the medium. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as the variety of pies is what make this location unique. On this particular visit I opted for the Neopolitan meatballs while my companion had the Mezzemaniche. The meatballs were savory. moist and served promptly enough that even the last one was still warm. The tomato sauce is the thickness of a gravy with a nice textured feel on the tongue. my companion felt the horseradish that accompanied the dish was a bit tart, but left the plate empty so it wasn't disagreeable.
Two glasses of Hobo Zinfandel paired the meal perfectly. We opted for no dessert, but I've always enjoyed them in the past.
Wayyy too Moises! Food was not wonderful - wrong pizza was delivered. Taken back not great tasting - off night. Staff was nice
Hadn't been to Delfina in a while and wife and I were terribly disappointed with this visit. First of all, the music was God-awful. It was music for high school sophomores, and since it was lunchtime on a Friday, there were no high school sophomores in the restaurant. The music was loud, making conversation difficult since everyone in the restaurant had to talk loud. Wife ordered a salad. Plate was underwhelming with food. The salad was skimpy for $12. Way overpriced for what you received. Then the drinks. A glass of wine for $9 was not a generous pour like you received in other nearby restaurants. A glass of beer on draft for $6 was the smallest glass I have seen in a restaurant. The previous time we went, the place was full. This visit, there were empty tables. If they don't straighten out their act and give value, they will be closed in 2-3 years.
I simply love this place!
Great pizza. What more does one need
Pizzeria Delfina is a very good restaurant in Burlingame. The Pizza was excellent as was the fried chicken which they only have on Mondays.
Parking is not easy .
Service is good.
We had a pitcher of beer that was EXCELLENT.
All our food was delicious especially the tuna salad! We have eaten here several times and always have a wonderful meal. The staff was busy but always helpful and available when we needed them.
My negative reviews are purely based on the loud music which turned to hard rock as the evening progressed. After an hour we couldn’t take it any longer and asked them to turn it down. The staff did so right away which was much appreciated. We have been to other restaurants that refused to turn down the volume or had to ask their managers first. It made all the difference to enjoying the rest of our evening.
Came for lunch 2 people ordered salad one came out 5 minutes before the others the. We ordered 4 people pizzas and 1 was left off the order so they had to re fire it in oven so that person couldn’t eat till the rest of the table was done.
Awesome servince. The food is always good. The music... (Metal??) So not appropriate. I couldn't wait for us to finished eating we ended up skipping dessert.
I love dining at DelFina...however.... my dining partner was looking forward to the veg lasagne which I thought was a menu standard. This dish seems to have been discontinued and due to a dietary restriction we were unable to eat there.... bummer.
Ii do look forward to returning for Fried chicken monday or some other great dish..
Consistent with the one in San Francisco. Just wish that fried chicken Monday was everyday because it’s so delicious!
Excellent food and service
The Spicy Cauliflower and Broccolini Pizza were excellent. It's a little pricey, but good ingredients and good service. Not a place for intimate conversation. Too noisy.
Our server was very helpful in recommending dishes. We liked the chicken, bit spicy but very good. You can Copenhagen cafe on the run
I was disappointed that we arrived a few minutes before our friends.. we were told it was POLICY that we couldn’t b seated at the table..
We had to go to the bar and pay separately, rather than pay one bill..’
Not great customer service..
Not sure if we’ll return..
Food was delicious. Service was prompt and personable.
We had a small get together with good friends here and we had a great time. The service was good, the food was good, and we felt taken care of.
Always great service and beautiful food. One of my favorite spots in town.
Great place for pizza and a bottle of decent "Pizza wine" at a fair price. Excellent at what it attempts to be.
Meatballs were excellent! Butterscotch Budino was great for dessert
Love that the menu changes with the season and is always an new exciting, delicious adventure. Outstanding.
Don't miss the newest addition, a wonderful squash dish.
They were so great with our large group including a baby!
