Fodor's Expert Review Delfina

$$$ Mission District Italian Fodor's Choice

Crowds are a constant fixture at Craig and Annie Stoll's cultishly adored northern Italian spot, where aluminum-topped tables are squeezed into a casual chic interior with hardwood floors, a room-length mirror, and a tile bar that seems to radiate happiness. Deceptively simple, exquisitely flavored dishes include excellent pastas and consistently great roast chicken; the panna cotta is best in class.
