The menu was not huge but all the dishes on offer were delicious. Our party of seven sampled most of them between us. They happily catered for our vegan daughter with an off-menu dish. Unusually for this stretch of the coast, Delfino has a view of the sea. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent.

Came here with friends, for a Birthday Party.The quantaty of food was OK, but with a little more attention it would be a place to return to. Mini meat balls were cold and chewy, like the little squares of pizza some thing with thw vegetable pies. The sgabei could have been offered with a plate of small goods and stracchino.The buns with tomatoe and a slice of mozzarella were terrible.The bread crumbled and they were dry, at least grill them of pass them in the oven.I had risotto that was very salty, had in returned to the kitchen but the second portion was h same.Only positive is the staff and the Kararoke. I shall not return.

We came here by accident. The restaurant suggested by our hotel was not open. I'm sure it was a dandy one. But maybe not as dandy as this.

We were early. 6:30 They don't open for dinner until eight. What a problem. Lucca set us up with a very nice bottle of wine and some munchies which we enjoyed while walking along the Mediterranean Sea. Dirty job but we got it done. Actually, we were a bit disappointed about the litter along the sea. Sloppy tourists? Quite sad. We live near the NC shore. Litter is at a minimum, It can be done!

Then Jimmy arrived to take our order. I think he is also the chef. It all looked so good we ordered too much. (How do the Italians stay so slim and eat so much?) Everything was delicious. The fish soup is nothing but clams and mussels and just enough "soup" for dipping bread! The fried fish and vegetable offering was wonderful. Very light batter. Not over cooked. And the pasta dish....I could go on.

Dessert was striking up a conversation with a happy couple from the Netherlands. No calories but stil very rich.

Every riviera has it's restourant front of the sea. In Marina di Massa that is not simple because sea is far from the street but Delfino Restourant probably have the best location for who love eat simple sea food and see (or heard) wave. Price is very chip. Probably Delfino best menu is Antipasto di mare caldo, Spachetti allo scoglio, Fritto misto con little vegetables. All with a bottle of fresh white wine. Better reservetion calling Andrea at mobile 320 178 8827. It's possible eat also inside or outside under veranda or if weather if fine under tent.
