Almost $10 to add a topping? Unbelievable! – The menu states that it costs under $3 to add any topping to a large deep dish pizza, but when I wanted to add spinach to a Delfino's Special, they wanted to charge me the price of a deep dish spinach pizza plus 4 additional toppings. So what should have been $28.70 + $2.40 ($31.11) was going to be $39.30???? That's nearly $10 for adding spiniach as a topping.
I am not the first customer to bring this up, and the owner refuses to accomodate customer feedback. In this economy? It's just BAD business, and it makes me wonder what other surprises are part of their menu pricing.
As a devout Chicago deep-dish lover, I think the pizza at Delfino's is passable, and the service is usually good. But my clearest impresion is that Delfino's is too comfortable as the only deep-dish place in the Seattle area, and this means that neither the menu nor the customer are always right.
BEST PIZZA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Absolutely the best pizza I've ever had. Delfino's makes the most delicious Chicago style pizza. Their deep dish pizza is amazing, but their stuffed crust is a must have!!! I recommend the stuffed with spinach, herbs, and cheese. The zesty tomato sauce provides the pizza with an extra zing that is unparalleled. In addition, do yourself a favor and order the black olives as a topping. All the ingredients tasted fresh and perfectly complemented each, making each stuffed bite seem like one is popping little pillows of deliciousness into your mouth. I will be back over and over again...
Best pizza I've had in Washington State – I loooove the pizza here! It's absolutely amazing!! Their Caesar Salad is my favorite and their stuffed spinach, cheese, or delfino's special pizzas are to die for. Their deep dish delfino's special is awesome too. WOW.
Horrible Deep Dish Pizza – This is the WORST deep dish pizza I have ever had. Im born & raised in Chicago, and this is an insult to Chicago style pizza.. There was hardly any tomato sauce, and the crust tasted like old bread. A real Chi pizza must have a flaky crust, this did NOT. I was very disappointed with this joint, if you want a real pizza in the Seattle area, just order one online from Lou Malnati's! Save your time and money and go else where!!
inexpensive lunch with service! – I am a UW student, and I prefer to walk off campus for lunch rather than eat in the loud, crowded options available on campus. At Delfino's, I can get lunch (a slice of stuffed spinach) complete with a root beer for less than $7. I can pay this much or more on campus, or at other places in the UVillage, but what keeps me coming back to Delfino's is the inexpensive lunch PLUS service. I can sit down and read, while having my root beer refilled when needed, having my plates bussed, and all very promptly.
Decent Pizza, horrible service – Well, I had not been to Delfino's in a couple years because the service was so bad last time, but after reading through my most recent Bon Appetit magazine and finding them featured, I thought I would give them another try. I will agree that the pizza is pretty good. Not the best I have had, but pretty decent for Seattle. The service however was worse than I remember. Reading other comments, it seems to be a recurring theme here. Either that or myself and the last few reviewers got the same waitress! Had to get our own napkins and silverware. Waitress pretty much tossed the pizza and drinks on the table. Bon Appetit must have called in for take out! Skip the dine in experience and just pick it up.
"OK" Pizza, Sucky Service – Went in on a slow afternoon and got indifferent service. When pizza finally came, it wasn't anything special. The waitress never said anything when dropping off the food, we had to get our own silverware and never got offered refills on drinks. Will not be going back.
Best Chicago Style Pizza in the Puget Sound – If you want, a really good pie and you do not mind having college kids serve you this is a great place to spend an hour or so enjoying the best Chicago style pizza with in the city!
Pizza is great, the first one I ever had was 13 years ago and it was the Stuffed Spinach Pizza (I hate veggies) and it was so great I had to try them again this time with Sausage and Pepperoni and I have been hooked ever since. If you take the time to put the number in your phone you can call ahead, (it takes 25 minutes for a deep-dish pie to cook) then your food is ready for you when you walk through the door.
Staff is a bit slow, and can slow down even more if you are rude or complain about having to wait 25 mintues for a pizza, and I would be too! Getting refills on Soda or Tea is a bit challenging, however if you are polite the service is good, not great but good.
To all those non-believers I say good luck finding a better Chicago style in Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Lynnwood, Everett, Bellingham or Portland!
Good pizza, awful customer service – I love Delfino's stuffed spinach pizza - best pizza in town. However, I will never go back due to the worst customer service I have ever experienced! Our wait person forgot to put in our order and did not notice the mistake until we asked about our pizza 45 minutes later! We decided to leave, and they still made us pay for the soda we had while we waited for our non-existant pizza. I love the pizza there so much, I couldn't write the place off completely, so we went back a couple of weeks later for a second chance. The wait person again forgot to put in our order! The funny thing about it was the restaurant was not very busy...how could they forget to make our pizza?! I will never go back!
Great pizza – All their pizzas are great specially the deep dish and stuffed pizzas. The crust is flaky and buttery and reminds you why pizzas are also called "pizza pies". The ingredients are great would highly recommend the stuffed spinach or any pizza with sausage.
The staff is very friendly and attentive. Great place if you are looking for a quick lunch as they have a decent selection of pizza by the slice (tastes great).
