    Delicious thin crust pizza with extremely fresh ingredients and bold flavors. -Preeti Mistry, Top Chef

    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

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the pizza margherita is delicious. Yum!

    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.

    The pizza margherita is scrumptious...it's #21 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010. Read more

    Not a ton of seating, but worth the wait! I love the Salsiccia.

    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.

    Officially listed as Panna with Sausage, we prefer the nickname "Magic Pie", which sums up what is going on here. Read more

  • The Bold Italic

    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

    Ask for the Purgatorio.

    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.

    Holly Hagen · July 26, 2009
  • Rachel W.

    Go to Pizzeria Delfina and pick up a sausage pizza for a stay at home date.

    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.

    ate some really good thin-crust pizza (bonus: 2 blocks from my house).

  • Kenneth B.

    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.

    Kenneth Berger · April 27, 2013
  • Brett L.

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

    There are some places in life where less is more, and I feel that way about Pizzeria Delfina.

    if you do not get the prosciutto pie --> do not pass go, do not collect $200.

    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.

  • Irene C.

    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!

    Best pizza in the city. If you don't agree, go to your favorite spot and leave more room for me.

    You can't go wring but I especially like the tricolour salad, cauliflower, and pizza with sausage.

    Best pizza in SF. The margherita is delicious. The fresh stretched mozzarella is also quite tasty.

    Their pizzas are delicious. But don't miss out on the tricolore salad and cauliflower!

    The IT place in the Mission. Good pizza, albeit expensive.

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

    Lisa Peterson · February 15, 2010
  • Angelo S.

    Noisy! Noisy! Bad acoustics! But get the Napolitano with the anchovies, capers, black olives. Incredible and only $13.

    Does it look busy? Sit at the bar for a perfect pizza made before your eyes. Don't miss their special antipasti; they are ALWAYS excellent.
