Pizzeria Delfina is the lower cost more casual eatery next to top rated Delfina. They do not take reservations and focus on ‘Neapolitan inspired’, thin crust pizzas and Antipasti. Delfina does not serve pizza. They use local, seasonal ingredients and have a lots of wines by the glass. We recently visited the new California street location.
Decor, Vibe – Contemporary design with more seats than the Mission street location. Heated sidewalk tables outside. Stylish couples and friends mostly in their 20′s and 30′s were eating here.
Funghi Pizza ($17) with House cured Pepperoni ($3) was the better of the pizzas we had. The Pepperoni was thinly sliced but flavorful and delicious. Crust was like the other pizzas with a firm texture.
Margherita Pizza ($11.50) Tomato, fior di latte mozzarella, basil and parmigiano was one of the best examples of this classic pizza. Very thin crust and top notch cheese. No sogginess. It is enough for 1 person.
Salsiccia Pizza ($15) Housemade fennel sausage, tomato, bell peppers, onions and mozzarella had some spicy sausage added to their great crust. A good combo for those wanting meat. Not much cheese. Tomato sauce was more evident.
Keep in mind this is very thin crust artisanal pizza and nothing like Round Table pizza.
Albacore Tuna Conserva ($10) was a nice starter. Marinated Albacore and beans made this dish very tender and flavorful. Could have used more greens though.
Clam Pie Pizza ($17) Cherrystones, tomato, oregano, pecorino and hot peppers is a good pizza for those who like clams on their pizza. It was a spicy topping that was not as accessible as we would like.
Service was good with the servers very friendly. They do not take reservations, so waiting times can be high. Go early or late. Pizzeria Delfina is one of the better pizza’s in San Francisco. If you are looking for good pizza, be sure to try this place. We have been to both locations and find them comparable.
$1.25 per person added for SF Health care. Bi Rite creamery is across the street and down the block, so be sure to hit it for dessert if you do not like their dessert options.
