Delfino: Authentic Italian Cuisine in Roslindale.
We just had the best day.
The sun was shining, finally. We worked in the yard. and watered the plants.
After chatting with the neighbors, who walked by, we drove over to Allendale Farm in Jamaica Plain. In addition to having fresh produce, annuals and perennials, they have a pond full of turtles and polliwogs. There a a couple of cows there too and a hen house with a rooster that was crowing his brains out!
After the farm we took a ride over to Roslindale to see if we could get a seat at Delfino's. We'd heard a lot about it and wanted to try it out. The wait is usually 1 - 2 hours. At least that's what I had heard, so we went over at 4:30. We were seated right away. After getting bread and water, it seemed that we were the only table not being waited on. Well, it turned out that our table was the swing table and the waitresses took turns. Only the turns order got all screwed up and we had to ask for a waitress.
After we got our waitress everything was looking up from there. We ordered a nice Pinot Grigio and a scallops and shrimp plate. Mine was done with Pesto and my wife's was done with garlic and oil.
It was so amazing.
Please don't tell any of your friends so the wait won't be too long when we go back!
