A word from Della Terra
Della Terra is a Northern Italian restaurant located in the new Avant building in downtown Buffalo. Della Terra means, “from the earth”. A meaning that is translated to the way we prepare our food. This is why we have seasonal menu selections; designed to take the very best Mother Nature has to give at the peak times of freshnessContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food at Della Terra was quite tasteful, as they have changed their menu and added more items that are sure to please. However, be prepared to spend some time there, as it takes quite a while to get your food, as well as the guest check...even when the restaurant is not busy. Our server was very pleasant and attentive to our needs, which is what will most likely bring us back to the restaurant."

  • "Suprisingly good, especially for a hotel restaurant. Service was very friendly."

  • "My husband and I ate at Della Terra during our recent stay at the hotel. We made reservations through Open Table, which turned out to be completely unnecessary as we were the only diners in the restaurant the entire time. It is open to the mezzanine, which was hosting an extremely boisterous bridal shower with lots of whistling, hooting and hollering. The food was very good, however, and the wait staff were very nice. I felt bad that my tip might be their only one that night! The total was about $100, which is on the high side of our budget for a meal eating out, but to be expected at a hotel. It would have been much more enjoyable if there was a little more activity in the restaurant and a lot less from the upstairs mezzanine."

  • "5 star restaurant, 5 star chef, along with 5 star service. Our party of 4 had one the best dining experiences: "Pork Saltimbocca best dish along with great service from Sohir, everyone at our tab..." Foursquare Tip @ Della Terra http://4sq.com/1jLEKnX "

  • "Della Terra is very nice, the food and the service were good. But it did not get my wife and I wanting to return. If you in the area and staying at the Embassy Suites it would be very convenient, since the restaurant is located inside the hotel"

  • "This is the 2nd time my wife & I dined at Della Terra. It is a fine dining restaurant located in the hotel with the same name. Each time the food was very good, the ambiance & service were excellent. It is moderately priced for the fine quality food & service it offers. Each time the restaurant had a lot of empty tables. It could be our timing, but both evenings were on the weekend. It's a shame as this restaurant has a lot to offer in high food quality, Ambiance & service. "

  • "Celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. Could not have picked a better place. The service was outstanding. Always there whenever we needed anything but not overbearing. The food was fabulous. I will return there often as this was one of the best dining experiences we've had in years."

  • "The menu consists of 10-12 items, & that was the first indicator of what was to follow. The wine list is extensive & they may want to change businesses & merge with the bar. We decided we would order something "safe" so he opted for Lasagna and I chose Spaghetti & meatballs. After about 20 minutes, the waitress brought out some bread. I asked for some butter but was shocked when informed that was not an option & I could chose from Olive oil or balsamic vinegar for the bread. Finally the mediocre portion of Lasagna arrived, runny, and mushy, & my spaghetti sauce was in need of seasonings, perhaps some basil might have helped! That was the most commercially produced, "gourmet" sauce I have ever tasted, and we won't be back!"

  • "Food was decent, great wine, but ambience is lacking. Definitely feels like a hotel restaurant and not the trendy Italian restaurant it claims to be. Menu was a bit disappointing too. Was hoping for a bit more creative dishes but instead it was the standard filet mignion and chicken piccata."

  • "I enjoyed my meal at Della Terra. My sister and I took our parents there for their anniversary. The food was good and they had an extensive wine menu for my mom to pick from. Though reading the menus were a bit difficult as it was getting dark out and there were not many bright lights in the restaurant."

  • "Came to Della Terra for Valentine's dinner, and my date and I were very satisfied! The service was outstanding overall: our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menus and wine selections (which was the restaurant's best asset) and managed to deliver our entrees in a very time-convenient fashion. Everything from the bread and bruschetta (appetizers), the bottle of moscato, the lobster and pasta, as well as the desserts were well-done. Highly recommended for special occasion and romantic dining!"

  • "Upon arriving at restaurant it was nice to have free valet parking. Had to ask where the restaurant entrance was. The host stated it would be chilly as our seats were located by the main doors of the lobby. It was very chilly. Our waitress greeted us in a nice friendly way. After placing our drink orders is was 15 to 20 minutes to receive them. Appetizers were ordered and were excellent. We placed our main dish order which was delivered in a timely fashion. When we received out main dish we ordered a glass of wine which took another 15 to 20 minutes and only after asking about it. We wanted to have a nice glass of wine with our meal. Main course was great by the way."

  • "My husband and I dine out for Christmas and finding a place can be difficult. Della Terra was an excellent choice. The Christmas menu was perfect and well executed. Be prepared though...if you have a cocktail in the lounge you may experience sticker shock. A vodka martini and a domestic beer racked up an almost $19 bill. Surprising, since the wine list is reasonable for a fine dining establishment. All in all a very pleasant evening."

  • "A very friendly, inviting atmosphere. I was pleased with the valet service and the ease of handicap accessibility. The menu choices were different from many other restaurants, combining ingredients in an unusual but delicious way. The entree was visually pleasing; the meat did not require a steak knife to cut. The service was prompt and our various requests were quickly satisfied. A rather delightful evening; we will return."

  • "From the moment we pulled up for valet parking and until the moment we left, we were treated to genuine warm smiles, greetings and enthusiastic service - simply outstanding. Lovely holiday menu and Chef graciously accommodated my special request. Never having dined out on Christmas Day I was reticent to do so but so pleasantly surprised at the outcome. I may never cook another Christmas Day dinner again! What a delight to spend this special day enjoying family and great dining without the stress. Thank you Della Terra and all your wonderful staff for making our holiday so special."

  • "We enjoyed the ambiance, our waiter Tom and our meals tasted very good, they were a good portion. I only heard raves from our group over the evening."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "We celebrated our anniversary here. Tom our server was attentive and provided wonderful service. The food was all prepared from scratch - was fresh and delicious. The menu changes seasonally and takes advantage of seasonal fruits, vegetables and dishes. Della Terra has a nice wine list and a full service bar. Desserts were wonderful - fresh, refreshing and unique. We have dined here several times and have never had a disappointing meal. I have entertained for business here - group of 12 and the service and food were exceptional. Do not be scared off because this is a restaurant located in a hotel. Think of it as a restaurant that just happens to have a great hotel attached to it! Ciao!"

  • "Started with the warm figs wrapped in prosciutto--delish! I ordered the seared Ahi Tuna with wasabi aioli, it was fantastic and my husband had the tenderloin wth lobster tempura special of the evening, also extremely good! The bread basket was also top-notch, I highly recommend Della Terra and am looking forward to spending more time there in the summer when they have the patio open."

  • "A friend and I had dinner at Della Terra prior to a night out. I had read mixed review on a few different sites, but decided to give this place a shot. I liked the complementary valet. Especially because finding parking near the Embassy Suites is a huge pain on the weekends. We were seated promptly. I wish that there were doors or something that made the restaurant feel as if it was a separate entity from the hotel. Also a little music for ambiance would have gone a long way. We ordered an appetizer to share, two entrees, and desserts. The food was good, but not amazing. Our server was friendly enough. The ambiance was missing a few key pieces. Overall if Della Terra could tweak a few things- it could be so much more than it is."

  • "Our 1st server was slow and had a bad attitude. Asked about our order before mentioning the specials. Brought it up to the maitre de and he switched our server. Turns out the original one didn't mention on of the specials, or that a couple of items were not available (one of which my wife initially chose)."

  • "we went early becasue we had to make it to a show, the place was empty when we got there. Very friendly staff, solid wine list. Nice menu, something for all. Food quality is very good, ambience is not real romantic, contemparary furnitre ,and there was a convention group at the bar with name tags, nothing wrong with that, but being attached to the Embassy Suites that is what to expect. I wouldnt recomed as a romantic place. Fine meal though, friendly attentive service , I would not hestiate to go back. I had the pork Osco Bucco it was delicious,"

  • "A great location downtown in the Avant building. Overall a nice experience. The restaurant was very clean and tidy. The wait staff was attentive but not the best we ever had. The food was good but again not the best we ever had. It was very quiet and we tend to like a little more hustle and bustle, we like to people watch. I certainly wouldn't not go there again but it probably wouldn't be my first choice."

  • "the restaurant makes you feel like you are sitting in a hotel lobby, which i guess you are. the crowd is quite mixed, people dressed nicely for a good night out but then people also in jeans and even sweats!"

  • "This restaurant is in the lobby of an Embassy Suites hotel; I wish I had known that ex-ante. More important, the service was atrocious. The wait staff was perfectly polite. The problem was that the service was infinitely slow. In this spirit, it's useful to note that there were only four diners at the restaurant when we there; the two of us and another party of two at a different table. It's frightening to consider what would have happened if they had, say, just four more diners. The food was adequate-to-good; nothing special, nothing hideous."

  • "I arrived on time for my booking and found no one at the stand or for that matter on the floor. After a four-minute wait, I got someone from the hotel desk (yes, the restaurant is in a hotel lobby, which I didn't know) to find a waiter. Unapologetic, yet friendly, he showed me to a table. The salad was delivered well before the glass of wine I ordered, and then the dinner was delivered well before I finished my salad. I ordered the only pasta on the menu of this "Italian" restaurant since I was carbing up for cycling. Big mistake. The pasta was slightly overcooked, the sauce was flavorless, the meatballs unseasoned. All carbs, no flavour, a big mess o' bland."

  • "I had been to Della Terras twice before I decided to go for restaurant week 2013. I dined with 5 other women and they recieved their meals and mine came close to them being done. I asked to be compensated with a glass of wine for the wait. The waiter told me he asked the chef to recook my chicken as he thought it was overdone. Since when does a chicken breast take longer than lasagna. That was my last time at Della Terra. Wait staff has changed. Restaurant was almost empty on a Thursday night. I guess the public agrees."
