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.

Great spot to eat outside. The tables were spaced but the overhead heater kept it warm. The food is always excellent and the staff did a great job of keeping us safe.

We had a lovely experience today for lunch - the pandemic precautions are very well done! There is a super clean outdoor dining area with no touch menus. It’s nice how they add a special side table next to the dining table- the side table is where the servers set down the food and the diners then serve themselves. The dirty plates are then placed on that same side table for the servers to remove. Oh, did I mention how wonderful the food and service were?! Tasty fresh pizza and pasta, cheerful prompt service too. Will definitely come back soon!

Had a really nice dinner outside. We were worried because it was raining cats and dogs on our way there but the outside patio was covered, cozy and cute. Service was great, our server was training so she had someone following her, they were both super helpful and so was the bussing staff. Food was great, burrata, meatballs and pasta pomodoro didn’t disappoint and the wine list is decent and well priced. Overall, a nice time.

Very happy that I made reso and helped launch their reopening night! Mia was an outstanding waitress! Super friendly! Antonio was also a very friendly server. Love to add fennel sausage to the pizza- great flavor! Always a great experience at this pizzeria!

Dining during covid times is interesting. Pizzeria Delfina is honestly a delicious place to eat. We had the margerita pizza w/ prosciutto and it was SO GOOD! They are definitely trying to make every dining experience a safe and pleasant one. It's all self-service, but they place the items on a "landing place"- and you grab the items yourself. It's very easy and a safe way to dine. The wine was yummy. Although you are "timed" while eating (a couple of 2 people have 90 minutes)- you certainly don't feel rushed. The only downside is not every table has access to a heatlamp, which can feel a little chilly, but the wine helps to stay warmer. I would absolutely recommend it. The appetizers are good, the pizza is delicious and it's nice to support a business during these crazy times.

We ate outdoors and the service was good. The Gem salad and arugula salad were both very tasty. But, the pizza was not as good. The crust was charred nicely , but hardly any cheese or toppings. Disappointing for a pizza restaurant

I understand the need to turn tables, but it's a real turn off when we're about to spend a lot of money on a nice meal to be told we have to leave within 90 minutes. We felt very rushed. Also - when I order a "starter" salad, and then a main, I expect to get the salad first - not at the same time as the pizza, or having the pizza arrive literally moments after I just started the salad. Again - contribute to the feeling of being rushed out. Food was great and service friendly, but I won't be back too soon as this is the second time in a row the above issues have occurred. It would be one thing if this was an inexpensive diner, but it's not - it's high end, expensive pizza.

Good use of improvised outdoor space, but a little inflexible on heaters, etc. Definitely would order the arrancini (rice balls) again. Think the wine list could use a little more variety. Perhaps inquire about their corkage if you want wine certainty.

This was our 2nd time dinning our since Covid in March. We felt safe with the outdoor booth & the pass through table is a great idea so the waiter does not have to reach over anyone at the table.

Masks were worn by all. Tables were spaced as much as they could. Would go back if booth was available.

The wait staff were all very nice. They took our drink order, but returned without the water. The Crostini appetizer was too well done with large pieces that were difficult to bite. The chicken dinner was tender, but too spicy. The pesto pasta was delicious, unfortunately it took super long to be served. We asked the waiter twice how much longer it would be. He kept saying they were cooking it and it would be ready soon. Unfortunately by the time my dinner came out my husband was already done with his dinner. We ordered 2 coffees but were charged for 3.

This is one of my favorite pizza places. Their pizza is pretty consistent. We also frequently get their roasted chicken and their pasta. Portions are small, so definitely get a few dishes to share. I also tried the grilled calamari today over white beans. It was pretty good but lacked a depth of flavor and had very few pieces of calamari.

Pizza Delfina set up wooden divider outside with plastic covering. Awesome idea. We were there at lunch and did not see how the outdoor lighting would have been used. Felt safe and away from the crowds on the sidewalk and other tables. Their pizza was crispy and chewy as usually. Service was wonderful.

Hadn’t seen friends in a long time. Pre-COVID we got together regularly. It was great to sit outside eating and catching up. We were careful and tried to sit a bit far apart but rally appreciated the kindness of the staff and felt grateful to meet again over pizza, apps, and beers. Thank you!

So strange to be seated at an unset table of bare wood. Immediately feels like it is not worth it. The experience is unnerving and unenjoyable. It's a tough time. Better to take home and set a pretty enviornment. Going out is not a pleasant experience right now.
I am not recommending it due to the situation at this time.Sad.
