    I rated the service as a 2 star not because of our server, it was because of the timing of our food… we had just had our appetizers and salads delivered to the table and literally had our first bites and our meals were delivered. This is a timing issue with the kitchen staff, customers don’t want there hot meal sitting at the table getting cold while they are still enjoying there appetizers, most will agree with this statement!

    So glad we decided to stay in town and try Dels. This place did not disappoint! The service was fantastic and the food phenomenal. We ordered the bread with olive oil and balsamic to start, along with the warm olives and mussels and wine. My wife had a vegan rice dish and I ordered a seafood fettuccini. Both came out incredible. For less than $140 this was more than worth the money. We will definitely return next time we are in Waterloo!! =)

    Dels is a delightful Italian inspired spot. Great menu choices. Service was great, from the front host to the wait staff. The whipped ricotta app was delightful and light. My wife chose the seasonal seafood bowl, and she said it was overflowing with fresh seafood. My less adventurous choice (chicken parm) was good . We shared the tiramisu, a flavourful and light choice. It was a fairly busy place on a monday - certainly not packed but more than enough people to add ambiance.

    Absolutely amazing service, food, and experience yesterday! I brought my mom and brother here for Mother’s Day and our waitress was amazing and so patient and kind. She was very helpful with the menu and went beyond and above by going to the kitchen and speaking to a chef to see if they could figure out an item my mom was looking for. The food was amazing as well and it was the best we ever had from there, just wish we didn’t accidentally leave out leftovers behind 😅 overall this experience there, highly recommend.

    Let me start with the good. The ambience is amazing and the service is wonderful. The food was a bit of a let down. Again let’s start with the good. The clay pot bread with the two butter options is very good. The desserts were also very good. The non alcoholic drink options were enjoyed by all. The main dishes we ordered were chicken parm which was decent, the fettuccini bomba was pretty good, then it fell off the cliff. The mushroom risotto had large chunks of portobello mushrooms and way too much of them. It was overwhelmingly earthy and the truffle flavour was lost. The Vespa pizza had far too much balsamic on it to the point of making it soggy and just tasted like vinegar. I genuinely had a good time there so I am writing this to help improve the food. Less is more sometimes guys.

    We were a party of 8 and our server was excellent. She was very attentive and was by far the best part of the experience. The food was so disappointing. It was like food you would get at a cheap chain restaurant. It tasted like it had been heated in a microwave. We won't be back.

    We love Del’s. The food is always incredible. Although the restaurant was not as busy as it often is, our order was inaccurate. We received our entrees very quickly (normally a good thing), but hadn’t received our appetizer. We then asked to cancel it. My entree also didn’t come with the added protein that had been ordered. It was made afterwards and brought late. It won’t stop us from going back, it’s a favourite restaurant of ours. But this time the kitchen and/or service just wasn’t “on their game” like usual.

    Our server was so nice. The restaurant was very noisy tonight - more so than usual. My partner order the tomahawk steak from upstairs and surprisingly it was that great. It was undercooked (ordered medium rare and was rare) and did not have the requested spicing (peppercorned).Considering the price of the steak and chef’s reputation, we were surprised and disappointed. Everything else was good - food for others was great.
