Chef Roman Petry reviews Chilled tripe "Tripperia style" at Pizzeria Delfina
$$$ | Italian | Pizza
"This tender, chilled tripe is dressed with lemon and good olive oil—then sprinkled with sea salt and parsley. It’s so refreshing and packs a whole lot of flavor while being really balanced. Add some of the home-made chili oil to get even more kick out of it."
Chef Patrick Kelly reviews Neapolitan meatballs at Pizzeria Delfina
$$$ | Italian | Pizza
"The meatballs in sugo at Pizzeria Delfina are absolutely rockin’. They remind me of my little Sicilian grandmother’s meatballs and sauce. They are as close as they come (although I would probably never tell her that). They’re simple but they really take me back to being a little kid and having Sunday suppers at my grandma’s house."
Chef Telmo Faria reviews Margherita pizza  at Pizzeria Delfina
$$$ | Italian | Pizza
"Whether it’s for lunch or a casual dinner, this simple pizza always hits the spot. A slightly blistered chewy crust, tangy sauce, creamy and fresh mozzarella, and sweet basil make up what is probably one of my top three dishes in the city."
