Delvino's Grill and Pasta House was opened in the Spring of 2010 with the intention of creating a first class dining experience. Set in the heart of downtown Belfast, the building was previously the site of a local hardware store (left). Delvino's embraces a classic style with a modern twist, promoting an eclectic variety of apps and entrees that are sure to stimulate the senses.
Specials of the day often reflect what can be locally-sourced. Chefs employ regional flavors and rely heavily on local produce, especially during the summer months. Delvino's utilizes these flavors as well as the freshest seafood from the area to create unique and savory dishes, homemade soups, salads and pasta.
Jake Grass began studying culinary arts while still in high school. He later attended Johnson and Wales in Providence, Rhode Island. After working as a sous chef at several restaurants, he became head chef at Delvinos, where he constantly strives to produce exciting and innovative dishes.
"We have a great location. Belfast is a small coastal town that is bustling with tourist and locals in the summer. We have access to great fresh local seafood, meats, cheeses, and produce. Delvinos has a beautiful brick interior, granite bar, and a variety of great artwork. We have a unique look that isn't found anywhere else in Belfast." -Jake Grass.
