    Fresh ingredients and thin blistered crust since the dawn of time (the late '90s). Try for the sidewalk seating and a classic margherita pizza or the fennel sausage: it's the stuff of Mission legend. Read more

    The margherita pizza is deceptively simple, right? Simple enough that you kinda want to order the fancy broccoli raab, panna or prosciutto pie? Imma let you finish, but ... you get the idea. Order it.

    "The Italian ices at Pizzeria Delfina are so good, and they come in three flavors: chocolate, lemon and cherry. My favorite one is chocolate. Plus, they're made in-house." Chef Joe Magnanelli Read more

    Great date spot with fantastic pizzas. You can try to share, but you might as well order one for each person, they are THAT good. Great wine selection as well. Be prepared to wait.

    A Sicilian specialty, granita is a staple of Delfina's dessert menu, and it makes a wonderful end to any meal at this next-door sister restaurant to the Mission's Pizzeria Delfina Read more

    It may sound simple but the 4 cheese, with added house pepperoni, is just too damn good. Perfectly crispy crust with a nice bit of char here and there on the edges.

    Get here early for dinner (before 7) or come at lunch if you want to snag a table for these delectable thin crust pizzas. The Napoletana is fantastic. Or call in an order to go & eat at Dolores Park.

    You can make the argument that no restaurant in the last decade has changed the dining landscape quite like Delfina and its pizzeria offshoot next door. And that's a good thing. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Best pizza in San Francisco. Thin crust, fresh ingredients, superb mozzarella. The margherita is a sure bet, but the toppings and special pizzas are also delicious. You will want to come back!

    Get the Prosciutto pie, the pizzas are surprisingly light so you wont leave feeling stuffed. Remember to write your name and party size on the blackboard when you arrive so you can be seated.

    Craig Stoll cooks Italian food here through the lens of the Bay Area: hyperseasonal, locally sourced, and as primally satisfying as the home cooking of a Tuscan nonna. The panna cotta is legendary.

    Best authenticity Italian pizza I've ever had outside of Italy. Meaning, you'll be disappointed if looking for a thick doughy crusted, piled high with ingredients, drowning in cheese kind of pizza. 😁

    Zagat 25. Cost $30. “Insanely good”, “beautifully charred” Neapolitan-style pies with “innovative toppings” have fans of this Mission–Pac Heights duo vowing they “won’t eat pizza anyplace else”;

    Fantastic Italian menu and delicious fresh pizzas. Although Delfina is usually crowded and hard to get in, the pizzeria next door that is smaller and open for lunch tends to have more openings.

    One of the best pizza places on either coast. Pair your slices with the wide selection of Italian wines under the outdoor heat lamps on a cool San Francisco evening in the Mission.

    Get the classic Neapolitan-style Margherita made with minimal but super tasty ingredients, like Berkeley-based Belfiore mozzarella— it's packed with flavor! Sometimes simplicity really is perfection. Read more

    When it's nice out - I'd just get a couple pizzas to-go, a bottle of red from bi-rite and picnic at Dolores Park. Delfina's pizzas are so delicious and can be enjoyed anywhere.

    Even though the place isn't too big, they have delicious pizzas. I got a margherita and added prosciutto - a great choice! The ingredients were very fresh, loved the mozzarella cheese!

    Pizza is good but not all that in my opinion. Certainly the prosciutto pizza was not worth 17USD at all. Didn't try the margherita though. Will continue looking for the best pizza napolitana in town.

    EXCELLENT thin crust pizza and appetizers. No reservations so put your name in and wander the mission. If they have the roasted cauliflower appetizer, get it and prepare to drool.

    The space is tight and the place is busy, but for good reason that renders it worth the squeeze, wait, and cost. A strong selection of good music, pizza, and specials - this place is great for dates.

    Any and all of their pizzas are fabulous (the crust is Neapolitan-inspired, they say), but I love the prosciutto the best. One of the best pizza places in SF, hands down.

    Try La Sibilla’s piedirosso (medium-bodied red wine). Indigenous to Campania, this rare grape offers balanced fruit-earth flavors & decadent aromas; good complexity results from old vines.

    Go to Pizzeria Delfina, order a bottle of Nerello and people-watch as you wait for you table. If it's on the menu, get the Grecia (special) pie or anything with meatballs.

    Sit at the counter and watch the kitchen staff go: stretching dough, prepping appetizers, even making fresh Mozz right there. If the pizza has cream or an egg on it, ORDER IT!

    One of the only top pizzerias in the city that does to-go orders. Take advantage, never wait in line for a table. The fried stuff here tends to be gross, stick with the salads, antipasti, and pizzas.

    Try the non-pizza specials: homemade meatballs, eggplant parm, lasagne, fried sardines, calzones with a side of tomato sauce, with a glass of the red "Irpinia" wine.

    Buratta is excellent. Soft, served with crunchy bread, olive oil, and arugula. I wonder if they make it in house?

    I love Neapolitan style pizza but I thought this pizza was too crisp. It was very... Crunchy, and good Neapolitan pizza dough should have some give.

    Almost always busy. You can order carry out and skip the line, or put your name in the chalkboard and grab a glass of wine while you wait.

    Maybe the best pizza I've had in the city. Menu changes, but asparagus with lemon brown butter and pizza amatriciana were highlights. Great service.

    Yum! The meatballs are to die for... So are the brussel sprouts. Grab a glass of vino and sit outside in the sun. Great people watching too!

    Pizzas are perfect to share for 2 especially if you want to grab some dessert elsewhere along mission after. (I suggest mission pie)

    Not worth the wait to sit at the restaurant; order pizzas to go, stop by Bi-Rte to pick up wine, then go sit in the park and enjoy your Prosciutto Pie.

    Easy to find a parking spot nearby. Beautiful murals inside. Deserves all the positive reviews, delicious gourmet pizza with fresh ingredients.

    Get the tuna conserva: a delicious and surprisingly filling combination of flaky oily tuna, meltingly soft butter beans, and bitter greens.

    Waiting is typical here. We loved the Salsiccia, and Prosciutto Pie. Save some room for the bomb-ass Meatballs in Sugo as well.

    Not sure what the hype is about. The prosciutto and arugula pizza was so bland. And the place feels so claustrophobic... How many more people can they smash in there?

    Best pizza. Take the one with home made sausage with a glass of Italian wine

    Margherita pizza was delicious although the neopolitan probably wasn't my favorite. Lots of people were ordering to go. Delicious though!

    Try ordering off-menu: the Purgatorio (spicy tomato sauce and pecorino with two farm eggs cracked on top) is always available.

    Simple ingredients that pack a punch of flavor. Get some burrata to start and split a couple pizzas with friends.
