It was mine and my boyfriends first time going to Dels. We have always heard many amazing things but we wanted to see for ourselves. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed. From our mozzarella app and the famous bread, to our pasta and pizza it was all super delicious. Our waitress Katie was perfect as well, knowing when to come and ask questions and knowing when to give us our time. We will both be returning! Thank you for an amazing experience.

The food we did receive was excellent... which was the family dinner of salad, pizza and pasta with Italian Sosa drinks. However, we also ordered an artichoke and spinach dip and it never came. Our Salad came and we waited for our dip but after the salad our meal of pizza and pasta was served. Also did not have any mint chip gelato even though it was offered. Still I do recommend this restaurant for the food. It is really fresh and an excellent Italian eatery.

Thank you for sending us your review Jen! I will be addressing the missing app. with your server. I am very sorry that it was missed for you. As well, even though it is winter, out gelatos are incredibly popular and unfortunately we did run out of the Chocolate Mint that evening so I apologize about that as well. I have put on your profile with OT that we owe you a spinach dip and hopefully you will be back soon to enjoy it! Until then, that you again for your review!

Valentine's Day celebrations are wonderful here! The food and drinks were tasty and delightful. It's a different menu than their regular service, but I could only imagine what their food and service would be like daily as anything other than exceptional. The service was very professional and many times I was asked how the night was going. Besides it being a little pricey, I highly recommend Del's.

Main entries were not hot when they came to our table and the beef was just warm. Desserts were dry and chocolate tart had an undercooked shell.
Appetizers was good
Price was a little high for the quantities and quality

I'm sorry that you didn't feel you had the best value for your Valentine's Day dinner Ian. I am also sorry that your beef wasn't hot - something I wish your server had addressed immediately. We will be addressing these issues in our post- Valentine's Day meeting to ensure we do better for next year! Thank you for your review!

My husband and I have dined at Dels specifically on Valentine’s Day for the past five years. The past two years we have noticed a huge decline in the food. This year our steak was mostly fat, our add on of a lobster tail was a total of four bites and our pasta was gummy and so overcooked. We never complain, but need to make mention of this as we spend a lot of money at this restaurant and expect a high quality of food. We will note that the service is always wonderful from the bartenders, hostess and servers. We will however not return to this venue.

6 ladies went for birthday celebrations on the 28th and it was the worst! Our waitress was absolutely horrible which is something I am not used to with the 30 years I have visited the Charcoal group. We waited to order drinks and waited and waited. When she finally came to take our orders she forgot paper and had to leave us and made us wait again while she waited on other customers. Never suggested appetizers and we had to request the bread when we placed our orders. Couldn't request more bread as she never came back and other servers brought our meals. Had to ask for more water when our plates were being cleared and then never offered dessert or coffee, just brought our two desserts to celebrate our birthdays. Everyone in our party was disappointed with our evening and I have canceled my reservations for Valentine's Day aswell.

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!

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)
