Pizzeria Delfina was practicing with two wood-burning ovens in front of the Festival Pavilion when I left. Hope to hear some reports from those who try the pies.

Thorough Bread’s miche loaf was great, as was everything they were sampling.

  1. The Delfina pizza was delicious, definetely less chewy that the pizza served at restaurant. More like A16 or Pizzaiolo.

      pizza sauce was good but the crust was soggy in the middle and most of the edges were burnt, but not in a good way. too charred. Gialina's is still my favorite.

        Interesting to read these two viewpoints. I saw a "trial" pizza that looked very brown but not charred or bubbly and also quite thick, like maybe the fire wasn't hot enough. Someone saw me staring at it and said, "get rid of that", and into the trash it went. Does P. Delfina have any plans for the wood ovens?

        Also wanted to mention that I had a tiny taste of a Neococoa truffle that left a big impact. I'd seek these out.
