I hope no one was turned off to Caffe Delfino based on the previous reviewer's opinions. On the Westside, where there is no shortage of quality Italian restaurants, Caffe Delfino is among the best of the bunch. They use nothing but the freshest ingredients: tomatoes, basil, spinach, garlic, pastas, etc. The service is outstanding, our waiter took the time to explain each menu item and gave his reccomendations, etc and when we left he shook our hands and made us feel like we were old friends. The previous reviewer stated that the prices are ""outrageous"", however there is no item on the menu over $22. If that is outrageous I suggest you go to Olive Garden where you can eat all the salad and breadsticks you please for $14.99. This restaurant is always crowded, and the space is small so make sure to have a reservation. There is very little street parking so you'll most likely have to use the $5 valet. If you want a romantic, homestyle dining experience then I recommend Caffe Delfino - a true neighborhood gem.
Pros: Quality of Ingredients, Welcoming Staff, Nice Location
Cons: Limited Street Parking
