A San Francisco restaurateur and hospitality icon, Annie Stoll’s passion for good service has long been the perfect complement to her husband Craig’s passion in the kitchen. After honing her front of the house skills at some of the city’s top restaurants, Annie met Craig while working at restaurants across the street from each other in Mill Valley. They soon left to open Delfina, eloping weeks after opening its doors in 1998. Since then, she has secured the reputation for the Delfina style service that perfectly reflects its food: casual and urban, with a friendly but professional sophistication leading it to a 2003 “Best Waitstaff” Award by San Francisco Magazine. Annie has overseen the hiring, training and management of all front-of house staff at the subsequent openings of Pizzeria Delfina on 18th in 2005, Pizzeria Delfina on California Street in 2008 and their most recent Osteria Locanda in 2011.
