Pizzeria Delfina Burlingame
Defina Pizza is a perfect close to place as date night, casual dinner amongst friends and just grabbing a few pizzas to take home for dinner. Was a bit bummed we only order Pizza, but will definitely try other items on the menu other than pizza. The chicken looked tasty, will have to order that next time. I do like that they offer soft serve, unfortunately, it was not working the night we dined.
Food was delicious!
I was shocked by the lack of cleanliness. I saw food on the floor in several places and management and servers walking past and not cleaning it up. I'm familiar with their restaurants in SF and this one does not compare.
Food was great, lots of gluten free choices. Service was good but super noisy with annoying loud music. Super crowded & staff seemed stressed trying to seat & serve people.
Repeat customer. Quality pizza and nice ambiance. Highly recommended.
Pizzeria Delfina - Arancini Mozzarella, Salsiccia Pizza, Neapolitan Meatballs in Sugo, Dolci Soft Serve Gelato (fior de latte, strawberry or chocolate hazelnut)
It’s the best Restuarant in town. Always great, super consistent with everything - service & food! It’s our family fav!
Delfina is quite worth the buzz. We especially enjoyed the non pizza dishes, the veggies and the tripes were wonderful. Use the Chili Oil, don't overuse it!
Lovely afternoon sitting outside enjoying lunch! The fungi pizza was out of this world. Great wine selection too. I look forward to returning.
Great lunch on a Sunday before heading to the airport. Everything was tasty.
Great spot, good food!
Delfina is the best!
Delfina is always delicious! Great food and pleasant service.
Excellent service and delicious food !
The pizzas are yummy. I particularily like the tricolor salad. Highly recommend for lunch.
Always great food but today, the experience was fantastic thanks to our server, Cecilia. She is truly an asset to the restaurant and made our experience so delightful and memorable. We especially noticed how she does her job with joy and a true intention to delight the customers. An example and role models for anyone in the industry. She is fantastic!!
So great we ate here twice on a recent trip. Get the Greek salad and the Panna pizza. Best pizza we have ever had. Amazing. Sat outside both times, very cute place.
Such amazing food
Fabulous dinner as always! Great service, food, and beverage. We loved our pizza, pasta, and salad. Delfina is my favorite restaurant in Burlingame. Thank you for being in Burlingame - I prefer this Delfina compared to the ones in San Francisco.
Quality has gone way down. Forgot half of my order. Pizza was soggy. Not going back.
Understaffed. The pizza showed up 15 min before we got any drinks. When I continued to ask about where our drinks were (we didn’t even have water) our server made fun of me, and then brought only my drink, which she spilled on my coat sleeve in her accentuated nervousness. After this she brought a used rag to dry my sleeve. I didn’t want to interact with her any more. I know waiting on customers is not easy. I waited tables for years. But I did not act like my customers were unreasonable for wanting food delivered in a specific order. Drinks come before the main course. Food should come out at the same time for a table of four. Dinner is a time to relax, not to be accosted. I will not be back.
This place was always consistent and its been our go-to spot for years and years, but lately the experience has been a major disappointment. Especially today was something else.
The sauce on margherita was so watered down that from the first bite it was a huge let down. Also they’ve been really stingy on basil that it just looks like a cheese pizza with tiny green dots here and there. The dough was still good; crispy at the bottom and doughy on the outside with charcoaled smokiness to it
The new pepperoni pizza was horrible. Pepperoni pizza is supp osed to be bursting in flavor with the spiciness of pepperoni, the cheese, the sauce... but this was so bland that I almost dropped the pizza on my plate. I didn’t even finish one slice.
The service was incredibly slow and inattentive. We’ve also noticed that all waiters were new.
What happened to this place????
Pizza was meh, plates were dirty and took much too long to get attention of servers/ staff. Probably won’t be going back, Rise across the street is a better alternative though a bit pricey.
Food was good but the service beyond terrible. The waiter gave us the wrong bottle of wine, ignored our table most of the evening and wasn’t at all professional .
I treated myself to a birthday late lunch, and as always I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Pizza Del Fina. it is one of my favorite restaurants in Burlingame and I always come for the Regazza salad. They have excellent selections for wines, and their coffee is also amazing as well as their gelato ice cream!
Made reservation ahead of time for brothers visit. The only available time was 8pm. Showed up to a 3/4 empty restaurant. Seated, ignored for a surprisingly long time. No water, no breadsticks, no sign of waitstaff except for the woman at next table serving them and ignoring me. Other people swarmed around, are they waitstaff or busers or hosts???? It doesn’t matter because NOT ONE of them stopped to help me. I finally waved at a man across the room to see if he’d recognize me as a customer sitting at a table. He looked at me with concern. But that’s it.
Then a woman came over to “take my order”(Salad, beet salad, glass of wine) Didn’t write it down. She informed me that they just sent home all but one of their waitstaff. NOT MY PROBLEM, I made a reservation so they could expect me. I assume it was professionally informed decision. She disappeared and so did my order until a never before seen-kid threw down the green salad so fast I could t ask about the rest of order. More minutes go by.
A man is taking the order of a two top next to me, seated AFTER me. I get his attention for the 3 feet away (should not be that hard!). I ask him if, perhaps he is my waiter? He says Yes and we agree that he’s very busy...!?!?!.... but he’s trying his best.... I ask him if I can perhaps get the rest of my order. He immediately brings it. Shocker! Was it just sitting somewhere!????
There’s more but I’m honestly feeling just tired of it. I left a large tip, because I’m a nice person.
Great food, consistently delicious. Service was inconsistent.
Food was great. Service was very prompt but dour. Servers seem very bored and do not add to the experience. At these prices, I think they should.
We met some friends for a late lunch. Our guests didn’t want a huge lunch, so the food server suggested that we just order a few small plates and a margarita pizza. The food was great - the pizza was one of the best I’ve had in a while.
Great food and service! The quality of the food never disappoints! I will keep coming back to Delfina’s!
Overall we enjoyed dining at Pizzeria Delfina. The food was well prepared and very good. The noise level is quite high but we expected that due to the type of restaurant and construction of the building with high ceilings. Our dinner server was friendly and efficient. We did have a curious beginning as our table wasn't ready we sat at the bar for a drink. The young woman serving there didn't seem to care if we were there or not, several times walking past and not saying a word. We FINALLY ordered just as we were being seated for dinner. I would go back but perhaps skip a drink at the bar.
I love Delfina - the best pizzas and fabulous salads
We liked it so well we are going back tomorrow night!
Limited menu. Not willing to substitute
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!).
