Delfino is a gem in the heart of Roslindale. They have, in my opinion, some of the best Italian food in the city of Boston. Go here. You won't be disappointed. I ordered the papparadelle w/ porcini mushrooms and it was amazing. I also had the calamari which was wonderful. I had enough to take home of both the pasta and calamari to last me for two more meals. The portions are quite hearty. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They don't try to rush you out. The restaurant is small and fills up quickly because it's such a popular place. I love coming here and will continue to do so.

I ate there last night and ordered pasta with seafood. My Caesar's salad was very good as was my main dish. The service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. The restaurant was crowded, and I can see why.

The food is great and our server was excellent, and she enabled us to customize a few dishes. I can particularly recommend the salad with pears, almonds and Gorgonzola (instead of the goat cheese). Helpings are very generous - we both had food left over to take home and couldn't even finish the delicious chocolate bread pudding, which we split. It is very popular and they don't take reservations, so getting there early is a good idea.

This is my new favorite Italian restaurant!!!! The wait staff is lovely. The food is just delicious!!!! My husband and I had the most delectable dinner here on our 41st anniversary! I had linguine scampi with lobster. MMMMMMM! My husband had a special - fried oysters, and other appetizers he loved. This is our new go-to restaurant!!!!!! (Don't forget to have the Tiramisu for dessert)!

Excellent quaint restaurant hidden in the Roslindale neighborhood. I had the Lobster Ravioli. All I can say is wow! Great portions and good pricing for a gourmet meal.
