The view from the Mission District is echoed inside Pizzeria Delfina on 18th Street with a mural by Andre Karpov, sweeping from bridge to bridge. Above the sidewalk tables, a blue cursive neon sign proclaims “Pizzeria” on the glass façade. The interior of Craig and Anne Stoll’s restaurant boasts white tiles and a long wood-slat bench along a wall with tables and chairs in front; above it a long chalkboard proclaims the menu offerings. Using seasonal and local ingredients, the culinary crew creates New York-style and Neapolitan pizzas plus antipasti to pair with one of 20 Italian wines.
AS FEATURED IN...
From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Pizza master Chris Bianco uses top-notch artisanal ingredients for exceptional wood-fired pies that have been called the best in the country. His brick-walled place is regularly mobbed; expect long waits.
We loved: Wiseguy pizza with roasted onions, smoked mozzarella and fennel sausage; Biancoverde pizza with mozzarella, ricotta and arugula
Insider tip: Impatient pizza lovers take note: Reservations are accepted for parties of six or more.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
