Dels Italian Kitchen
At dels we make our pasta from scratch, use only the best tomatoes for our sauce and bake our pizzas in a stone hearth pizza oven. Great Italian cuisine is inspired by robust wine; the perfect match can be found by the glass or bottle on our sommelier's wine list. Buon Appetito!
Del’s Italian Kitchen is a vibrant Italian restaurant with a crafted menu full of house-made items that will please everyone in your group. Semi-private areas as well as a beautifully appointed private room, provide options for many types of events.View Private Dining Details

Food was horrible ! The waitress was rushing us ! It was a special occasion for us to celebrate but total disappointment!
Great atmosphere, great location, delicious food.
Enjoyed the Chicken Marsala- fantastic sauce, perfectly cooked spaghetti. Chicken was a bit on the rubbery side but was still very good. Generous portion so I got to enjoy it again the next day at lunch!
Thank you for your review and I am so happy that you enjoyed the Marsala again the next day!
Food was great along with company. Unfortunately there was a little baby who cried the whole time we were there. But I’m sure if we had gone later to eat this would not of been an issue
Thank you for joining us Wednesday! We did have a little Mariah Carey here that night. Sorry that took away from your experience. Thank you so much for your review!
I loved the quiet, comfortable atmosphere at Del's — no loud music blaring, and not too cramped. The food is top-notch and uses fresh, high-quality ingredients. The service was very friendly, smooth, and well-timed. The Family Share deal is an incredible value. Pasta, pizza, salad and Italian sodas for 4 people cost me less than a trip to most fast food restaurants! The unlimited bread (baked fresh in a flowerpot) is enough to keep me coming back, which I'll probably be doing every week!
We love our Family Share deal on Sundays! We truly feel it is the best valued meal in the city! Thank you so much for your incredible review Ben! We look forward to seeing you next Sunday!
Another wonderful evening at Del’s! The atmosphere and food were a very welcome reprieve from a blistering cold winter night.
Del’s is by far our family and friends ‘official’ go-to place. Warm, welcoming, and unpretentious, it feels like home but tastes better! The Polenta fries and the Pera-Bianca pizza are mouth-watering favourites. (Now I’m hungry again... see you soon)
Chris was so sad that he missed you Jennifer! Thank you so much for another wonderful review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We will be back! New favourite place to dine.
This makes us so happy to read!! Thank you for your incredible review and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
This was the second year we came for the early new years seating. Price and food was delicious and service was great. The only critique we have is it was really fast service between courses. Could be the new year rush and vibe but we noticed the speed this year over last.
Thank you for your review Jillian! We had such a great time NYE this year. It is true that your service was quick.. your kitchen was on fire that night! I'm sorry if it felt too rushed. We definitely talked about it post-NYE and will be even better for next year!
Awesome food! Will definitely be back!
We look forward to your next visit Elaine! Thank you for your review!
We had a wonderful dinner out with the family. My son and I got the specialty pizza which was amazing and should be a permanent item on the menu. Everyone else enjoyed their meals (pastas and another pizza). The flower pot bread is a big hit too! Will be back!
Thank you so much for your review! We look forward to seeing you and the family again soon!
Great pizza. Great cannelloni. And the potted fresh bread......WOW!
Thank you for your wonderful review! We cannot imagine not having our flour pot bread!
Service was excellent, the food was excellent, which made the evening excellent
Thank you for your 5 star review Steven!!
Excellent chicken parm!
I absolutely LOVE our chicken parm as well! Thank you for your review Dave!
Amazing food and atmosphere! A definite favourite of my family and friends.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Jennifer!
Very enjoyable experience.
10/10 would recommend.
Thank you so much for your review!!
My only complaint or downfall was the chicken Marsala was a little too soupy for my liking! Less sauce would make it better. Everything else was great!
We will happily make it less saucy for you the next time! Just let your server know when you order it again! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Thank you for your review!
Service was fabulous and the food was fantastic. We went for our anniversary and IM super glad we chose Dels
We loved celebrating with you as well! We look forward to your next celebration.. or just a nice night out!
Everything about Dels was outstanding. From the second we walked in, to the second we left. The service was unbelievable and the food was amazing. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for your wonderful review Rebecca! I have posted it for the staff to see! We will see you again soon!
Great place to go for a very good casual dinner. We’ll be back!
We look forward to seeing you again soon Mike! Thank you for your review!
Service was fantastic... our waitress was awesome... Food was fantastic
Great food and attentive service. Very loud noise level so if you want a quiet dinner you would be better off in the steakhouse.
Thank you for your review Jan. We are lucky to be busy this time of year and to have a 'boisterous' restaurant at times. I'm sorry that it was too loud for you that evening. We hope to see you again soon though!
Our bottle of wine was good... our mussel appetizers, was cold, and the mussels were under cooked. There were mussels not even open. The calamari, was tasty, but there was 5 pieces!!
The butternut squash ravioli was tasty. (as usual)The cioppino was horrible for almost $30.00 the 2 people that got it, both expected more. The shrimps were large and over cooked, the scallops were the smallest ever, and the sauce tasted like a can of stewed tomatoes...totally tasteless. Our server was very nice and efficient.
I wanted to bring up all these issues at the restaurant, but as it was a Birthday celebration was asked not to. I would never go back again, I think we will stick with upstairs at Charcoal!
I am so sorry to hear this Joyce. I certainly wish that someone in your group would have said something so we could have fixed the issues while you were still here. We have addressed the food issues with the chef and I will be talking to your server about your experience. Please email me email@example.com so I can invite you back again. We want you to have a wonderful experience the next time! I look forward to hearing back from you!
Food and service was excellent. Server was very attentive.
Thank you for your review Tammy! I have let your server know as well! We look forward to celebrating with you again soon!
We were there for a girl's group Christmas party. It was a great night out. Good food and atmosphere. All the staff were very attentive. Chris, our waiter was amazing. We felt very welcome and relaxed. Thanks to Del's
I have passed your comments on your great experience with us on to Chris!! Thank you so much for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
We had a terrible millennial server who we saw twice the entire time. Everyone served us our food, refilled drinks, etc. It wasn’t super busy.
It took forever to place a drink order. Drinks were fine. My Greek salad was gigantic chunks of peppers and cucumbers with a tasteless dressing, no olives, and a scarce amount of feta cheese. Far too much red onion — when picked out, I had a dessert plate toppling with red onion. My husband’s chicken Parmesan was pink and chewy inside. The fresh mozzarella starter was the highlight but not nearly as good as other Italian restaurants (Scaddabush, for example). This used to be our go to for a night out without our kids, but Del’s was a huge letdown that night, particularly in the service and food department. We likely won’t be back soon.
Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me today Jaime! I look forward to having you and your husband back in again soon! Also, thank you for posting this review. We need to know when we fall short so we can ensure not only you, but our other guests don't have the same experience. It was a pleasure talking to you!
We were never asked how our meals were.
We were never asked if we wanted an after meal beverage.
It seamed if we were an inconvenience to our waiter.
We enjoyed a great dinner at Dels on Saturday night. The food was very good (I had pizza, my wife had cannelloni, our grandkids had pizza from the children's menu). Bringing raw vegetables and dip for the grandkids (ages 3 and 6) was a nice touch and helped as we waited for our food. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that the music was quite loud.
Thank you for your review Marcus! We look forward to having you and the whole family back again soon!!
We always have such a wonderful time and experience at Del's. We spend every special occasion there because we know we will always have AMAZING food and excellent services.
Thank you so much for your review Roberta! We love having you too! We cannot wait to celebrate with you again soon!
The food was very good. The dinner for 4 Sunday special was very good but good enough for two people.
My problem was with the amount of spaghetti & meatballs. The bowl of spaghetti looked like it would be a very large portion for one person. There were only 5 meatballs in the bowl to split 4 ways?? We should have each ordered our own meals then we wouldn't have left still being hungary. The food quality was great so I do recommend Del's.
Thank you for your review Ted! I am sorry that you did not feel that our family share was of the best value. We want our guest to leave happy and FULL! We will look into the portion for the meatballs for sure. We will ensure the next time you are in that you even more satisfied! Thank you again!
We love the wood fire pizza!
Me too!! Thank you for your review! See you again soon!
My food was not very good but the server and manager were very concerned and dealt with the issue appropriately.
I apologize again for the cannelloni Louise! We look forward to wowing you the next time!
We used to go here regularly years ago, when it was Del Dente, and loved it. We went back a few months ago. We weren't thrilled with it, and it felt like the food had really gone downhill from what we remember.
Despite that, we thought we'd give it a second chance, and went for dinner. Despite it being only a little busy, we had some minor problems with our waiter, as he was hard to find, we didn't get bread, etc. The flower pot bread was always fantastic here.
Out of a family of five, I think only one of us was happy with the meal. It felt like either one meal took longer than the rest, and the others were either left to sit or cook too long. The food was dry and tough, felt like it had been overcooked. It was edible, but that's about as much as I can say for it.
It really was a huge disappointment, especially considering how good this place used to be. The first time, we chalked it up to an off night, but twice seems like a pattern. Since it was probably $150 for the five of us (2 adults, 3 kids/teens), I can't say I'm willing to keep trying it until they get it right.
I am so sorry about your repeated poor experience Shawn. Our owner will be contacting you directly. This clearly is not our standard both for food and service and we want to show you that we do get it right. Thank you for reaching out to us to let us know we have let you down. We look forward to wowing you in the future.
I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday at a high top table because it was recommended to us. We arrived and were sat at a low table near the kitchen. I was disappointed in the entire experience aside from the food. It took our server 20 minutes to greet us. The manager did come over but over the course of the dinner it seemed as though our server completely forgot about us. I could see a handful of other high top tables that were never taken. Overall kind of sad it wasn't more fun and special like it was recommended.
Thank you for the feedback and my apologies for your recent experience. I will be trying to reach out to you personally as this is not the type of experience we are wanting to provide by any means. I look forward to speaking with you soon. Dave
Waitress was not experienced enough to answer my questions on the menu. She did not return to ask for a second round of drinks. Several menu items were not available.
Incredible food. Service a bit slow but otherwise great.
Thank you for your review Tamara. We have addressed the issue of service with your server. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was beyond amazing. We so indulged, apps were amazing and the gelato for dessert. Great pizza. Fantastic beer selection and yummy ceasars. Our serve was wonderful, always around when we needed something, helpful suggestions (he recommended the grilled calamari app... It did not disappoint). Overall a great place.
Thank you for your wonderful review Megan! I have shared your review with the whole team and specifically your server! (I love the grilled calamari too!!). We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The arrancini was delicious.... our pizza Pera Bianca was much too salty. At our table of 4 everyone tried and no one could get past the salt flavour. The other pizza Soppresata was fine and it was devoured. Service was great
Eveything was excellent, the place is like a hidden jem
Thank you for your review Steven! Make sure to tell your friends and family about your 'found hidden jem'!! We look forward to your next visit!
Decent food. pizza crust is delicious. Great service.
Thank you for your review!
Great pizza and pasta. Easily accommodated our group of 6. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. I have been here many times, and would go back
Thank you so much for your review. (p.s.- love the name!!). We love our staff as well so it is always great to get personal feedback supporting that! We look forward to your return!
We frequent Dels very frequently and absolutely love Robyn and team. Their service and food are top notch. I would highly recommend them for a pleasant dinning experience.
