Delarosa San Francisco Exterior Decor

Delarosa is a new casual restaurant in San Francisco’s Marina district from the team that brought you Beretta. It is on Chestnut street, a couple doors down from the Apple store. Adriano Paganini, Deborah Blum and chef Ruggero Gadaldi serve up Roman style pizzas, seasonal antipasti, salads, panini, pasta, entrees, desserts and artisanal beer, wine and cocktails. They take no reservations, but can put your name on the wait list if you call within 45 minutes of your arrival.

Delarosa San Francisco Interior Decor

Decor, Vibe – Lowly lit informal atmosphere with sets of large communal tables, open kitchen, bar area to one side. Dinners consisted of mostly local Marina-ites, young adults, and a couple older folks from the hood.

Website Delarosa Menu


Delarosa San Francisco Mojito

Mojito ($9) was strong, full of mint, and solid. Could have used less crushed ice.

Delarosa San Francisco Meatballs

Meatballs ($6) in spicy marinara had a slightly zesty sauce but more heat in the two large, tender, and juicy meatballs.

Delarosa San Francisco Brussell Sprouts

Brussell Sprouts ($6) and lumpy caper aioli were a pile hot, super crispy deep fried wonders. Slightly burnt. Aioli helped mellow the Brussell Sprouts.

Delarosa San Francisco Pizza Margherita with Burrata

Pizza Margherita with Burrata ($14) cost a little extra but had big melted piles of cheese sitting on top of a healthy portion of tomato sauce. Very thin crust, not too crispy in the middle, nice crunch on the crust edges. Solid pizza but not in the same league as Gialina’s.

Delarosa San Francisco Ham Panini Sandwich

Italian Ham Panini ($10) with fontina cheese and mushrooms was a very nice sandwich. Hot from the oven, it had a nice warm bread crust, soft melted cheese, and a thin layer of ham. Mushrooms were from a canned tapenade. Excellent house made potato chips.

Delarosa San Francisco Bomboloni Donuts

Bomboloni ($7) Three housemade donughts served with chocolate sauce, sweet mascarpone cream, and raspberry puree. These came to us nice hot and fluffy. Tasty little creations and very nice dipping sauces.


Delarosa San Francisco Broccoli Bruschetta

Broccoli Bruschetta ($7) crescenza, broccoli rabe were two large helpings of veggies on toast. Bread on the soggy side and the flavors guide this toward the healthy end of the spectrum.


Delarosa had solid service with knowledgeable servers, easy refills and plate changes. This place serves up solid food at a fair price, making it surely a very popular spot for casual food in the Marina district.
$15 corkage, short wine list with wines by the glass from $7, bottles from $24. They add a 4% Healthy San Francisco charge.
