The food was spectacular. The service was wonderful. The rustic 'tuscan' decor was nice. It was more crowded that I've ever seen it, especially on a Wednesday night! It is a small space, but nicely decorated, good food, good service and good prices.

Second time here and I would say the first time was better. Had one of the specials, pan seared pork and although the taste was good, it was way over cooked and dry. Wine was great as was the bread sticks as always.

Always a good meal. Had the special eggplant moussaka, and it was wonderful. Always stay with the specials.
Nice meal, nice time...left full and happy. Great place to go.

The daily specials at De La
The daily specials at De La Torre's Trattoria are always excellent. I had an asparagus dish that was really good, batter dipped and fried golden with the asparagus cooked but still crisp. Topped with parmesan cheese and a lemon sauce. The beef short-ribs in the red wine sauce with the cheese and truffle raviolis was flavorful, tender, and just the right size.

Everything was great, from the salads to the desserts. The service was attentive, water glasses were filled regularly and the meal was served at an appropriate pace. If it were not for the noise level in the restaurant (primarily from two large groups, one celebrating a birthday with noisemakers), the ambiance would be five stars as well. This is not a fancy place, but the menu has great variety and everything is prepared well.

DeLaTorres is one of our favorite
DeLaTorres is one of our favorite local Italian cafes. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. It is a small place with a peaceful atmosphere so it never gets too noisy to have good conversation.

Had the fried oysters which were to die for! I could close my eyes and think I was back sitting at my Nona's table! My husband had spaghetti and meatballs which he said was excellent. Portions large! Will definitely go back!

The food was great, the service was awesome. The wait staff were attentive to our needs but not to the point where they were a nuisance. They really did a great job. I asked for a seat out of the traffic flow. They seated us in the corner with no traffic at all.

The Best Italian Food in the East B
All of the food is excellent. We have been going to De La Torre's since it opened.
It is our favorite restaurant period. You can't go wrong.

On a Whim Dining
Used to go to Delatorres frequently when they first opened in 1992. Moved and went only occasionally. Husband and I went the other night and wow has it changed! The décor is wonderful and Tom owner/chef is still an awesome chef.. Husband had the lasagna and said it is by far the best he has ever had. I had the pizza which was quite good, although not as awesome as I remember. Had the special beet salad. wonderful! The toffee cake for dessert was sooooooooooooo incredibly yummy. A definite must try. We can't wait to go back again. Especially for the toffee cake (and I am not even a sweet eater). Highly recommend.

We love De La Torre's. Good food, good service in a lovely, local restaurant. A nice wine selection too. Two of our party had the lasagne which they raved about. I had the gnocchi which was good though it could have had a little more flavor. But, we would DEFINITELY come again.

Wonderful little place in a strip mall, from the outside doesn't look like much but the minute you walk in it is fantastice. Greeted immediately, out table was ready. It was a hard to decide what to eat so I asked the waitress what was good, she gave me a few options. I then gave her 3 choices and told her to bring me on. She mixed and matched my entree and side, it was sublime.
Thanks for a wonderful Father's day dinner

Never fails to deliver
De La Torres is a "can't miss" favorite of ours. Friendly staff + very good food + reasonable prices = never disappointed. There is enough variety from the daily specials to satisfy my wife; I prefer the old standby's - pizza or pasta - you can't go wrong! Don't overlook the burrata as a starter. And save room for desert....the fresh berry cobblers are very good and you will be hard pressed to find a better canolli.

Nice Italian Restaurant
Great food and service. Only negative is can be very loud with many conversations going on - acoustics not that great for quiet conversation when there are other large groups near by during the noon hour.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was a nice surprise - kind of a hidden gem. We had never been there before and were quite surprised and impressed by the friendly staff and nicely decorated interior. Very warm and friendly. The food was great. There were several groups of people there celebrating special occasions. For a small restaurant it seems to be quite popular. Will definitely go back to try some other items off the menu. Would definitely recommend.

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.

Nice Italian dinner
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.

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.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
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!

Good Italian food. Nice wine list although they do not serve alcohol. I took a group of business associates and everyone enjoyed their meals.

Authentic Italian Food
I been to this restaurant so many times for that authentic Italian taste. If you are looking for Authentic Italian Food. De La Torre's Trattoria is the right place for you.
Great Customer Service!

Pretty Good Italian Food
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.

De La Torre's Never Disappoints
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.

Birthday Dinner went well
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.

Consistent Quality & Service
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!

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

The good, the great & the just OK
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.

New to town
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.

Always a winner
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.

Always Very Good !
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 !

An Unexpected Gem
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.
