Great experience and excellent service as always. Only complaint is that they removed the “build your own pasta” option from the menu, which was always our go-to. If there’s no longer a build your own option, bring back the sausage and pepper penne!!!

Thank you so much for your review Rob! We have created a new menu that gives our guests so many 'building blocks' to start if they want to still modify and create their own pasta or pizza! Oh.. and we can make the Sausage and Pepper Penne any time for you as well! You will have to ask for it the next time you are in.. the sausage won't be the same but it will still be delicious!

We had an excellent experience on the patio at Del’s. The patio was nice and the tables were well spaced out. The food was amazing - the Arrancini was excellent and so was the seafood cannoloni! Would definitely be back. Thanks for making our birthdays special.

Romantic spot for date night, dark, fun, candlelit. They brought us fresh baked bread with herb butter and we had house made gelato. Service was quick and friendly. A little on the pricy side but the servings are big enough to share and food is so good that it’s worth it.

We had not been back to this restaurant for a couple of years as we had a bad experience with both service and food. We decided to go back for date night and were pleasantly surprised that the food and service were back to what we had received in the past. The food was great and the server was very friendly.

We will definitely be putting this restaurant back on the list of our favourite restaurants to eat at.

We haven't really eaten out (besides the odd patio burger) since COVID caused everything to shut down. As our first experience back out together for a date night, Del's was perfect. They made the experience feel as close to normal as possible, while still feeling safe AND providing us with absolutely delicious food. The mobile menu with QR codes at the table is a nice touch.

We were really impressed with being sat in a private dining room all to ourselves. It gave us the flexibility and safety we needed for a party of nine during these times. Our server was extremely friendly and welcoming however service was extremely slow. We were torn between feeling happy that we weren't being rushed but also questioning what was taking so long between courses. Our dinner took 3 hours from start to finish.

I am so happy that you loved the space Stacy! We had our private room available for that day so it worked perfectly for your group Saturday night.

We started out on the patio but it rained heavily and we went inside to wait it out... I the dining room was pretty busy (due to have limited seating because of COVID), but the manager, worked with his team and got us a great table at the back away from everyone. They could have turned us away, but they worked hard to keep us there and it was greatly appreciated! The manager and his team were so friendly and upbeat, it was our first time inside a restaurant since March and they made our night!!

I'm not one to leave reviews - and I should because I am a huge foodie ... I live to eat at fabulous restaurants! Whenever traveling I google the top 5 places to eat in that town/city, and this past weekend google sent us to Del's! This place is SO Beautiful!! I fell in love as soon as I walked thru the door. The atmosphere is cozy, warm and inviting, the decor absolutely stunning - they thought of everything, the attention to detail is outstanding! The food - fresh, homemade and fabulous right down to the beautiful presentation. The staff is friendly - your every whim taken care of.
