Great restaurant! Had calamari to start and then the parpadelle pasta. My husband had the full seafood linguini. Delicious! Only complaint is they do not take reservations and at 5:30 on a Sunday we had to wait 50 minutes. We went around the corner for a drink.

This is a fantastic place for dinner. The food rivals the North end restaurants. The service is excellent. This is another local gem. Great for dates, families and friends.

This is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. The food, service and ambiance are all absolutely wonderful. Most amazing fresh baked bread I have ever had. It is so hard not to eat too much bread. Hands down one of the best caesar salads! My husband always gets the Linguine Frutte di Mare with lobster in a fra... More

I love the antipasto, the pasta dishes and the tiramisu. I sometimes enjoy sitting at the counter and watching the chefs cook the delicious meals. The staff is friendly and nice. Must visit if you're in Roslindale!

Wow, I just finished dinning at Delfinos and I have to admit it was one of the best dinners I had in a while...sitting at the bar solo was like being with friends or family. They were very attentive and the food was exceptional!

Fresh home-made pasta, great friendly service, not much of ambiance. A bit noisy, but very pleasant overall.

Delfinos is my go-to for great Italian outside of the North End. The chocolate bread pudding is awesome

This well established Roslindale restaurant produces consistent high level Italian food at reasonable prices. Their basic linguine dishes are perfectly cooked. Several apps are really good. Cons: no reservations, altho they will take your name and hold your place while you browse this interesting neighborhood. Also can be a bit noisy; because they fill up with happy eaters!
