We were given a gift certificate for Delfino and turned out to be a great gift. The food is excellent, the ambiance is little Italy and the service is exemplary. Will be going back for sure.

Friends who are regulars at Delfino's invited us to join them. They live in Dedham and it's just a short ride from their home. The other 4 of us had never been to Roslindale and now have a great reason to go there. They told us we should go when the restaurant opens since it has no reservations and its... More

Went with a party of six on a Saturday night. They don't take reservations, but you can call when they open and get on a 'list'. Not sure how that works, but it seemed like it went smoothly. We did have to wait until a table opened up, perhaps half hour or so. Very good service, everyone loved their meals,... More

Great restaurant! Had calamari to start and then the parpadelle pasta. My husband had the full seafood linguini. Delicious! Only complaint is they do not take reservations and at 5:30 on a Sunday we had to wait 50 minutes. We went around the corner for a drink.

This is a fantastic place for dinner. The food rivals the North end restaurants. The service is excellent. This is another local gem. Great for dates, families and friends.

This is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. The food, service and ambiance are all absolutely wonderful. Most amazing fresh baked bread I have ever had. It is so hard not to eat too much bread. Hands down one of the best caesar salads! My husband always gets the Linguine Frutte di Mare with lobster in a fra... More

I love the antipasto, the pasta dishes and the tiramisu. I sometimes enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the chefs cook the delicious meals. The staff is friendly and nice. Must visit if you're in Roslindale!

Wow, I just finished dinning at Delfinos and I have to admit it was one of the best dinners I had in a while...sitting at the bar solo was like being with friends or family. They were very attentive and the food was exceptional!

Fresh home-made pasta, great friendly service, not much of ambiance. A bit noisy, but very pleasant overall.
