Whenever we are in Newcastle Delucas is our first spot to dine. Always enjoyed is a thin crust seafood pizza 🍕 along with a chinnotto and finished with dessert 🍨 Be sure to reserve a table well in advance to not be disappointed.

On a cool winters night we were after a cosy nook to have a lovely meal. I have walked past Deluca's Pizza many times and never set foot in the place. I guess I thought 'another pizza place'. However, we were drawn in by the Lamb Ragu Pappardelle on the outside specials board. We were very pleased with our meals... More

Delucas has been a favourite for many years! Their food is delicious and the staff/ owners are lovely and helpful when ordering. My all time favourite used to be the Chicken Saltimbocca but since becoming vegetarian I've tried more and more of their meat free dishes. The pan fried gnocchi has become famous in Newcastle as it's so damn good... More

We ordered the chicken risotto and a chicken pancetta pizza. Risotto taste of cornflour and was runny and bland. Pizza was dry and flavourless, not 100% sure there was any pancetta, ingredients were dry and not fresh. Considering the price and the product you would expect it to be better than dominoes. Will not return. Regretting going there

Enjoyed a meal with family. Food excellent and service ok. Meals came out quickly. Small venue with character and vibe. We visit every few months and would love to see a couple of new specials to try

We went here on the advice if trip advisor and it did not disappointment. yes there is no air-conditioning and it is "cosy" but we had the best bruschetta I have ever had and we loved the feel. It had a Brunswick street Melbourne feel about the street and area and good service. We will come back for sure.

Went for dinner here recently. We ordered a pizza (Italian sausage) and pasta (prawn linguine) dish for mains and both were of a high standard. This is a small, cosy, casual dining atmosphere - perhaps a little too cosy on the hot evening we went as there does not appear to be any air conditioning. For the price you pay... More
