Pizzeria Delfina

I finally got a chance to eat here and see what all the fuss was about.

My friend and former coworker at Chez TJ, Christina loves this place. We started with the warm-marinated olives which came out piping hot.

And delicious

We dined on the following:

Napoletana (Tomato, anchovies, capers, hot peppers, olives and oregano)

Salsiccia (Housemade fennel sausage, tomato, bell peppers, onions, mozzarella)

They were both great, however, I was totally in love with the Salsiccia pizza. But I gotta say that my love for fennel sausage started when I ate at Mozza. They both have similar styles of pizza - flat, smaller gourmet pizzas, although Mozza's fennel sausage pizza is better *wink*.

We were quite satisfied.

We finished the meal at Tartine Bakery which was right next door.

Can't go wrong with the Banana Cream pie here. Not the most pleasing photo, but nonetheless, a stellar dessert. This may be the first American dessert I've had that isn't loaded with sugar. I really tasted just cream (unsweetened), chocolate, real bananas, pastry cream, and a wonderful crust.


Then I had to try the famous bread pudding. It was okay but forgettable. A bit dry. Where's the "pudding" ? But I liked the addition of fruit.

I will stick to the Banana Cream Pie. I wanted to try the croissant and pain au chocolat since I've heard such great things about them, but I was put off to how disgustingly large they were. hahah maybe next time. =)
