spicy cauliflower - garlic, capers, breadcrumbs, calabrian chilies
the cauliflower was a fantastic start to our meal with subtle heat from chilies and added weight from the breadcrumbs. this is a must order if you like cauliflower.
prosciutto pie - prosciutto di parma, caciocavallo, mozzarella, panna, arugula
crispy crust with a somewhat softer center, savory meats, mild cheese, and bitter greens. this was a huge hit.
while not as good as the prosciutto, the margherita was a great interpretation of the style. the crust here was much more moist in the center than the prosciutto. note that both pies arrived pre-cut.
while i will admit that one of the main reasons i chose pizzeria delfina was its close proximity to two other must try spots on my list, i still went in with pretty high expectations and honestly our experience at pizzeria delfina really couldn't have been much better. the pizzas were both great as expected, and the cauliflower was an unexpected treat. as for the service, everyone was extremely friendly, with one of the servers being very informative when asked what the best/most scenic route to napa valley would be. add to all of this the fact that just about every song played overhead could be found on my ipod and you have a place i would return to in a heartbeat.
