    One of the best pizza restaurants in the city. Thin crust and simple toppings make my mouth water when I think about it!

    This place has been making good food consistently for well over a decade. The spaghetti is a must have item on this menu, do not go here without ordering it!!

    One of the best casual Italian restaurants in SF. Be sure to try a pasta. I like the squid ink with uni.

    Another pizza place in the mission. Go figure. But wait, this isn't your typical grab-and-go pizza joint. No, in Delfina, the mission finds the epitome of its burgeoning style: casual but hip, often crowded and cramped, delicious, and variably priced (honestly, you can get out of here for 15 bucks or you can end up spending as much as 50-- it's up to you)

    This place isn't bad for eating alone-- the outdoor tables offer great people-watching on 18th street; just make sure to come on a warm night.

    They are famous for their pizza, which is admittedly fantastic, but their other, more "adult", dishes are also quite tasty. The service is par for the course.

    Delfina attracts an eclectic crowd: everyone from mission hipsters to south-beach high-risers, to marina kids flock to this strip of the mission for Delfina and Bi-rite (if you do head to Delfina, make sure to stop at Bi-rite creamery, not the market, for some of the best ice cream in the city). Again, the space is small so be sure to make a reservation

    Two words. Consistently Excellent. We went for dinner yesterday and great as always. Starter was a plate of yummy warm (probably housemade) olives. The antipasta was a Puntarelle alla Romana with anchovies, lemon, and parmigiano. i had never had Puntarelle but it was cut into matchstick thin strips, crunchy, refreshing, and meets my daily quota of minimal fiber. we shared spaghetti. freshly made noodles of course with light plum tomato peperoncini sauce, perfectly cooked of course. also shared the meyer ranch hanger steak with fries. it was slightly overcooked for medium, my only complaint. otherwise quite good. when we told our waiter we were sharing everything, they were great about splitting everything into two plates, much more manageable given small table space and elbow to elbow seating. the waiters were helpful and attentive throughout. the only 3 downsides to this restaurant are: 1. parking is a bear, esp since this is the same block as the equally popular tartine bakery and bi-rite creamery. 2. this place has resonating acoustics and gets very loud. if you have loud table neighbors, you may find yourself yelling to converse with your tablemate. 3. well in advance reservations usually needed since this place fills up quickly. Total check including chocolate torte dessert - less than $100 for 2. not bad at all. i will be back soon for more tasty italian!

    Um, really? What more do I need to say? It's Pizza. From Delfina.

    OK, fine, you do need to be prepared for how potentially crowded and small this place will be compared to your impatience level and the size of the crowd wanting to go here at the same time, but it's Pizza. From Delfina.

    Pizzeria Delfina offers some of the better pizza in San Francisco. I don't typically venture too far off into their toppings, my normal order is margarita. They make it very well.

    Their antipasta is decent as well, the fried sardines are always great. I also really like that they have dublin dr. pepper, being a huge dr. pepper fan - that's a big plus.

    Come here grab a pizza and hang out in the park, can't really ask for more.

    Staple of the Mission, serving authentic Tuscan food with local ingredients since 1998. Owned by Craig and Anne Stoll; a must-try.

    The pies are good. It’s a little cramped. Not everyone should play sommelier.
