Pizzeria Delfina, San Francisco CA

Posted on | September 27, 2009 | 4 Comments


Another weekend trip to SF, only this time I was with my BFF, Amy. And, of course, I planned out several restaurants for us to get to!

The first was Pizzeria Delfina. Alan Richman recently rated Pizzeria Delfina as his 3rd favorite in the US, just above Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix. So of course, I had to try it.


We split two pizzas, the Margherita, and the Salsiccia. The Margherita was good, simple, but maybe bordering on too simple. A lot of the bites I took didn’t have any cheese or basil, and were simply crust and sauce. Not that either were bad, in fact, it was one of the better crusts I’ve had. Soft and doughy, yet quite crisp on the bottom, even in the middle of the pizza, with a very nice flavor to it. And I’m a sucker for slightly charred crust ends! The sauce had just the right amount of tartness, and the cheese was quite fresh and flavorful.


I preferred the Salsiccia, as the sausage was really, really good! A perfect blend of spices, and just enough of the sausage to add a great flavor, but not be overbearing. I’d definitely order this one again.


I would agree with Alan Richman’s assessment that Pizzeria Delfina is better than Pizzeria Bianco, which I wasn’t all that impressed with. I’d rate Delfina at around the same level as Pizzeria Mozza in LA, and Settebello’s here in Las Vegas.

Pizzas range in price from $10-17. Not super cheap, but one pizza is probably enough to share, if you have appetizers and/or dessert. After both of our flights were delayed, we were really, really hungry, and almost finished off both, but we also didn’t order anything else to go with it. In addition to the regular menu, they have daily specials, including a tomato pizza that looked quite good. Each table has a plate of fresh herbs, parmesan, and chili flakes, and a cold bottle of water. Nice touch!

The restaurant isn’t very large, but there’s a decent amount of seating outside. We were there on a Friday afternoon, and only waited around 10 minutes for our table. And once we ordered, the pizzas came out pretty quickly. I’ll definitely come back the next time I’m in town!

    The crust on that pizza pictured looks quite a bit like the crust on the pizza I had at Pizzeria Ortica in Orange County. And yes, that’s a good thing! That crust was perfectly crisp (and slightly charred) on the outside, but deliciously soft and chwy on the inside. That alone makes we want to try Pizzeria Delfina in SF.

    Another reason is that they have a second location in Pacific Heights just a stone’s throw from my aunt’s apartment. Oh, I can’t wait to return to SF next Spring and add this place to my “To Eat List”! ;-)

    I’ll definitely have to give Ortica a try the next time I’m in OC! Obviously, I love me some pizza… =D

    I visited several web pages but the audio feature for audio songs existing at this web site is actually wonderful.

    What you said was very logical. But, think on this, what if you typed a catchier title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid, however what if you added a title to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Pizzeria Delfina, San Francisco CA : Vegas Musings is kinda plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write
    article headlines to get viewers interested. You might add
    a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
