A word from Della Terra
A visit to Della Terra is like walking into a familiar Tuscan trattoria--comfortable, friendly, yet oh so elegant. You are immediately enveloped by the warm lighting and the inviting smells emanating from the Italian wood burning oven and the secret recipe pizza cooking inside of it. We greet you at the door with obvious pleasure, soft music plays in the background and our experienced waiters attend to your every need. You are home. The decor is a unique blend of New York sophistication and California casual: simple, cozy, luxurious. You"re surrounded by sumptuous dark wood, rich red brick, and wonderful wrought iron accents under a magnificent vaulted ceiling. If you'd prefer to sit among the flowers and climbing plants in the open air, the patio spills out into the Los Angeles afternoon or evening to provide the refreshing garden experience of a country villa. The perfect canvas for that perfect meal...

    The food was incredible! The salads were delicious and my entree (the salmon) was the best salmon I have ever had. My parents pasta and pizza were both very tasty as well. Definitely coming back!

    Nice enough restaurant with nice ambiance. Must get a lot of foot traffic because they do not seem to care about service. Seemed like only 2 guys waiting the tables, either managers or owners, because they didn't have service-oriented personalities. We had to ask someone to take our drink order because no one ever greeted us once seated, and we had to ask someone to take our food order. My aglio pasta was mediocre with the chicken cooked as a separate dish with its own seasoning and then dumped in with the pasta as an afterthought. One plus: portions are large and the pizza was very good, although not an appetizer size but very large. My guest's pescatore was decent enough and big. ADVICE TO RESTAURANT: Step up the service

    I love octopus and eat it whenever it is on the menu. I was so happy to see it at Della Terra although it was difficult not to order the branzino. Happily, my dinner companion did and I was able to taste the best branzino ever. The menu is broad with great starters, pizza and some lovely entrees. The service was prompt but not at all rushed. I cannot wait to return.

    Each time we enjoy this gem we are rewarded with rave reviews from our guests. The service is professionally attentive yet warm and we were allowed to linger. The menu offers a wide variety, all AMAZING. The setting is unique--a quiet, romantic dining room or a large patio with French doors that slide open in nice weather (a movie may be silently projected on one wall, perfect for families).

    Went here for their Dine LA promotion a few months back. Their food was good, staff attentive and friendly, and ambiance good for both special occasion or dinner with friends. Only small knock was food took awhile to come out even when it wasn't very crowded. More time for conversation though.

    We were met at the door of Della Terra and seated right away. The atmosphere is relaxing. Great place to have dinner after attending the taping of a show at CBS Studios. The menu had many choices for our guests and everyone loved what they ordered. I would try the Risotto with Shrimp again! The wine selection was had great options. Even though we were full from dinner, we just had to try dessert and so glad we did everything was scrumptious!

    Wow, we had such a wonderful experience here that we came back the next night, AND IT WAS EVEN BETTER! Started with complimentary olives and flat bread with pesto. Moved on to exquisite tomato soup. The Carbonara is to die for. The Angeline Pinot Noir is unbelievable. Not crowded. They have great specials. Undiscovered gem!

    We had 10 in our party and was set up in their private wine cellar room. Great looking room. The wait staff took very good care of us. Great wine list and very good options by the glass. We had calamari and the Della salad to start- real good. They have wood fire oven , so great pizza and calzones. Fresh pasta of all varieties and combinations , delicious and perfectly al dente.

    Dined on 6/3/2014
    We were a party of six and thought the food excellent. The smokiness of the wood fire grill comes across in both the meats and veggies. Lamb, beef, chicken and shrimp skewers were fun, tender and tasty, though the shrimp flavor was lost. Filet of beef was served as two half thicknes medalions medium rare and the right amount of smokiness that may not have been achieved if left full thickness. The veggies were delicious with the grill f2f lavor though over salted. We were seated at a large booth inside, by request. After about an hour several of us found the seats uncomfortable. A table would likely be a wiser choice when lingering to savor the excellent food and enkoy your company. Service was spot on and accommodating father in WC

    FOOD: I got the thinly sliced steamed octopus with arugula for appetizer. It had decent flavor. For the entree, I got the roasted chicken with vegetables. It was a nice portion of chicken and I liked the crispy skin but the meat was too dry. And I wasn't a fan of the sauce that the meal came with. My boyfriend got the filet mignon skewers with french fries. He enjoyed it. But he really liked the free bread with the dip. AMBIANCE: I liked the atmosphere: dark and intimate but casual at the same time. SERVICE: The waiters did a great job of refilling our water, cleaning our table and clearing out our plates. OVERALL: Everything at Della Terra was okay. I didn't have any complaints but I wasn't wowed by anything either.

    The food was GREAT. We enjoyed our food. The service was less than attentive as we had to flag down our server every time we needed anything, rather than the server being proactive. Also was surprised to see service charge added to bill of $50 for table of 6, though we originally reserved for 12 (unfortunately, we had last minute cancellations due to work obligations and illnesses). Never the less, we still had a great time and we ate well. I will definitely be back.

    Best bottomless mimosa brunch in the neighborhood. The short rib benedict is nothing short of spectacular. Only con is that my friend asked for mayo three times and she's still waiting for it. Other than that the owner is amazing and the food never disappoints.

    I am Italian and it is my FAVORITE cuisine. I am so happy I discovered Della Terra. The food was absolutely amazing. I had the carbonara and my brother had a lemon fettuccine and added shrimp, it was all so fabulous. We started with the caprese salad - DO NOT MISS IT! The service was good throughout most of the meal, but by the end they sort of forgot about us, so much so that we passed on dessert. I think some big wig had come in and was taking up their attention and the food was so delicious that I would most definitely return!

    Enjoyed a business lunch and on that particular day and time there were not very many people there so we were not rushed and there was no conflicting conversations to deal with. The patio remodel was a nice touch and the food was still good. One person had a squid salad which he loved the other had a different salad that she said she loved. I had a green salad and artichoke which was delicious.

    Second visit left a stained image of the first. Corner table across from bar. Service essentially nonexistent. Left out orders, never checked on table after delivered, frequent requests for water, bread, etc. ignored, and then " shrugged shoulder " look when brought out after meal was over. No apologies, no regrets. Actually, fairly LOW CLASS service. Tasty food + good prices served by managers, ? owner and staff that couldn't give a @#$% leads to a bad dining experience. But the place is packed on weekends -There's just no accounting for LA people.

    The food here was amazing, from the flatbread with chimichurri to the olives, to the ravioli di funghi to the proscuitto pizza with burrata. Beautiful patio, large enough table for all the food. Nice wine list too. Michael, our server, was very friendly. Recommended for a date, night out with friends, or catching up over a glass of wine.

    Good first experience at Della Terra. Inside room separate but across from beautiful bar, Two big screen TVs gives alternative entertainment if your company bores you! Excellent range of menu. Enjoyed pizzas ( Margherita, Artichoke ), grilled vegetable plate with a very creamy Burrata, peppery dish but DEE-LICIOUS. A papardelle pasta special finished off the group. Food overall was excellent. Service efficient, fast, but impersonal - almost noncommunicative. Will try again soon - so much potential

    Food is excellent as we have been to this restaurant in the past. Sauces are special, pastas are fresh made and presentation as well as portions plentiful. However, service is slow and this was not the first time. The management did try to make amends for slow service so hopefully upon our return to this restaurant, they'll correct this deficiency. Otherwise I highly recommend for authentic Italian food.

    Arrived 15 min early. The place was packed. They took our info, checked several times with us assuring they would get a table soon, seated us as soon as a table freed up and apologized for the wait...I told them we were happy and that we were being seated at our actual rez time!! Good draft beer selection for me..house chianti for my wife. Ordered the antipasto platter...the waiter told us it was enough for 4....he was right. It was FABULOUS, and we took much of it home. I had penne Bolognase, my wife had a stromboli, both excellent. Service was top notch without being fussy. We were again warmly seen off as we left...I always like that. We will go back!!

    Really great quality Italian food (as an Italian American I consider myself a snob). Loved the atmosphere as soon as I walked in. I was greeted right away and treated well the entire time. Service attentive, but not oppressive. Fantastic bread and house marinated olives brought to the table for no charge was a wonderful addition and great added value. I ordered the pasta with braised short rib sauce, my friend had the risotto. Both were excellent, nice portions. Pasta cooked spot on. We shared a beet salad and the waiter split it on two plates without us asking (even plating was done well on the split salad). Della Terra exceeded my expectations. Prices, while not cheap, were very fair and not so high to be considered expensive.

    Delicious Italian food, tucked away from the busy world. Although it's located in a very busy part of the world, once inside, you are unaffected by the craziness outside. The chimichurri sauce they bring at first to dip the bread in is to die for. All the food we ordered: steak, salmon, and pastas, were delicious. We would all definitely go back.
