The food choices were very good.
Excellent wine list without being too long. The wait staff were friendly and knew when to be there and when NOT to be there (that is often difficult for some to get right). Very excellent dishes of pasta (both pesto and marinara styles), shrimp, scallops, sausage .... all excellent. I would definitely go back."

Noisier than usual for a Saturday
night; hard to talk to one another. Waiter kept asking us how things were; the attention is nice, but at some point we want to be left alone. Food is always very good here, but the cappellini pomodoro had very few tomatoes and was dry. An off-night in the kitchen, perhaps. We'll try again before abandoing this restaurant, because they have a great track record."

Best restaurant in Pleasanton!
This is our go-to for almost any occasion as it has excellent food and is reasonable. Don't change - we love you just the way you are!"

With a menu that offers a nice
variety of entrees that are all terrific, this is a great dining spot. One of the best restaurants in town!"

Too many tiny tables jammed into
the dining room. Cramped, inconvenient, and not at all intimate. My filet mignon was tasty and cooked nicely, although the potatoes and vegetables were lackluster at best. I expect the chef to care about everything he puts on a plate.My wife's veal chop was borderline burnt, and so tough she literally had a hard time cutting it. She was sawing and sawing at it - if we hadn't been dining out for a special occasion, it would have been comical. She managed to eat 1 bite of veal, half a Brussels sprout, and 2 bites of potatoes. She declined a to go box. There was a time when if you couldn't eat your food, a restaurant would try to make if right. Anyway, we went home and she had some leftover Chinese food."

Food is always good and the

While we have been going to DT's
for many years, they will occassionally offer chicken contadino, as they did this Saturday, and it's always been superb. Done in a high output oven with roasted potatoes, many heads of garlic, and Calabrian sausage makes for a spicy and very tasty dish, and this week's was no different. And coupled with a nice Zinfandel off their extensive wine list made for a very special meal. Always consistent, always the best Italian food in the Tri Valley, and always a very helpful and attentive staff. Couldn't ask for anything more..."

I have lived in Pleasanton for
over twenty years but have only recently been to Delatorre's.. Everything is solid. I love their chicken Parm,. It has a great sauce and is moist without being greasy. I have not been disappointed once and this restaurant is in the regular rotation. We have a lot of Italian restaurants in this town, but none deliver like Delatorre"
Dined on 1/18/2014
The food at De La Torre was not
good, lacked taste for the most part, probably because overcooked. Traditional italian pata should be, if anything, el dente and lightly cooked. The only item that had taste was the minestrone soup, why by the way had many good ingredients, but the taste was the wrong taste, it was a tomato taste and not what I expected minestrone to be at all. We had linguine pesto and tortelloni, the linguine was badly overcooked, no taste at all to either the pasta or the pesto sauce. tortelloni also had very little taste, the only taste to the disk was the prociutto."

Great little authentic Italian.
Great service and a great meal!"
Dined on 1/13/2014
We loved our entire evening here.
After a warm welcome, we were immediately seated and began reading the extensive menu. Not only did we see pasta and classic Italian selections, but also an entire page of appetizer and entree specials. So many great-sounding choices. Everyone in our party ordered a different entree, and everyone raved about their dinner. Oh, and did I say they also offer gourmet pizzas if that might be what you're craving? Great spot!"

We ate on New Year's Eve as a
family and enjoyed it tremendously. What a great find! We all deliberately tried different meals and shared with each other. We asked for things not on the menu and were accomodated. Service was outstanding! I gladly gave a 25% tip. Eight of us and we were ALL pleased. We will be definitely going again."

Always an Excellent Choice to have
Dinner at De La Torre's! Even on a very busy New Year's Eve, Dinner was Very Good, both the Food and the Service."

Most consistently good restaurant
in Pleasanton. We have been going to De La Torre's for many years. Even better, prices are relatively reasonable. Unimposing from the outside, casual atmosphere inside, but a wonderful experience. If you are looking for a "sure bet", try this place."

A bit chilly in the restaurant,
felt life i needed my coat. Food was very good as usual, but wasn't as hot as we would prefer, ie, pork and mash."
Dined on 12/23/2013
Great menu with lots of choices,
the service was very good, and the pasta I had was excellent. The portion sizes are generous and i would definitely go back. Love that you can make reservations on Open Table!"

Delatorre's location in a strip
mall may not impress, but it's the best Italian in the area. The menu had many standards but also a number of unusual items and specials. The wine list is extensive. The service is great. It's good for lunch as well as dinner, and the prices are reasonable."
Dined on 12/5/2013
The food is always great and it is
usually busy, so that is a great sign for a restaurant located in a grocery store parking lot. Always consistently good !"

This restaurant never disappoints.
Food is carefully prepared in authentic Italian style. You can taste the love that goes into each dish. Lots of daily specials and great pizza, too. I recommend it highly."

Super friendly, efficient staff.
Food was good. No bar. Smaller place in supermarket strip mall."

Wonderful place that is always
full - we just moved to Pleasanton and found this gem soon after we arrived. We've been there several times already. Make a reservation for sure because there is always a lot of people wanting to be there."

The bruschetta was by far the best
I've ever had. The osso bucco was OK -- I was hoping for better. The Granny apple crumble was exceptional. Seems like a very popular place among the locals."

Great Spot for a civilized lunch.
Reserved crowd. Good place to talk business."

DeLatorres never misses the mark!
It's my go -to place to take friends and family when going out to dinner. You have to blink or you may think your in mamas kitchen in Italy........it's that great!"
Dined on 11/8/2013
It's a little neighborhood
restaurant without much ambiance or originality. The front door had a sign saying they were hiring - line cooks needed. The food reflected the kind of restaurant that greets their customers with a help-wanted sign. The only saving grace was finding a great Madden Ranch Petite Syrah. I decided to go with a local wine and was quite pleased with it."

We have been here many times now

De La Torre's in Pleasanton is a
very special Neighborhood Gem. It's not down town but it's got that down town feel when you enter the location. If you can get past the fact that it's in a shopping center next to Lucky's and not a stroll away from the Pleasanton down town sign.. you will find a great restaurant. The food is good. They have quite a few specials and it makes it hard to chose. Mom had the Salmon on her Birthday and she loved it. They even remembered to put a candle in the dessert. Nice touch. I would definitely recommend to a friend."
Dined on 9/14/2013
Very average. Not much flavor to
any of the 4 main course dishes that our party ordered. Surprised the previous ratings were as high as they were."
Dined on 9/6/2013
My wife and I wanted a nice quiet
evening meal and De La Torre's was our choice. We ordered the fried artichokes for an appetizer which was very good with the aioli dipping sauce. We order this every time now it is so good. I ordered the Macadamia encrusted Ono which came out at just the right temperature and was cooked perfectly. I always order fish here because it is always prepared just right, moist and never dry. My wife ordered a medium pizza which was also very good. We haven't ordered a pizza here for quite a while and when the medium sized pizza came out I was pleasantly surprised at how big it was. It would have been enough for the two of us and then some. The service was spot on, friendly and attentive."

Seems like decent Italian
restaurants are few and far between in the East Bay these days. Always a good meal here. Though it's in a shopping center, once you get seated, it's a pretty nice atmosphere. Service is attentive. The menu is broad enough and they usually have an entire page of specials. Had a nice veal stew this last visit -- very flavorful. My wife loves their regular spaghetti and meatballs. My son had a baseball steak with bleu cheese -- a little tart for him but not bad. They have pizza too, although we've never tried it. Didn't have dessert this time but on previous visits, all of the desserts we tried were tasty and they had a very nice tiramisu. All in all, a very good meal when you're in the mood for Italian food."

This was our first time to this
restaurant. We chose it based on online reviews. One of the best Italian meals we've had in a long time!"
Dined on 8/4/2013
Dining room is small which
contributed to higher noise levels but food was very good. Service was also good but we did have to wait 20 minutes for a table in spite of having a reservation. Menu had numerous choices along with some daily specials so there is something for everyone. Reservations are a must for dinner as the restaurant fills quickly."
Dined on 8/4/2013
We have been looking for an
Italian restaurant since our old Italian stand-by in Hayward closed. This is a nice place with good food and good service. The marinated olives are a special treat and the fresh pastas are great. Certainly a cut above our old place. Thank you, De La Torre's Trattoria."
Dined on 8/1/2013
Nightly specials were offered on
menu but very limited quantities so you must arrive early to get them. We dined there Saturday night and it was packed by 6:30pm. Reservations are necessary to get a table. But strange thing is there were plenty of tables available for second seating. Food was good but wasn't outstanding. Service was excellent with very attentive wait staff."
