Food was very good, and portion size was enormous. Staff was friendly and attentive, and there was easy parking nearby on a weeknight.

My go-to spot
I'm never disappointed when I dine at Della Terra. Ever. The food is delicious every time, whether I'm having pasta, pizza or a main entree—it's always tasty. The guys that run the place are fantastic. They know how to make everyone feel welcome. Della Terra has quickly become my go-to spot. Love love love it!

Our first but not our last visit
Group of five out for a casual meal and we really lucked into Della Terra---we loved it. Followed the server's suggestion about wine and he was dead on right with a suggestion none of us had ever heard of before. Fried calamari appetizers were shared--they were good, nothing special. Entrees were amazing. Lamb chops, shrimp risotto, lasagna, lobster/shrimp ravioli, and sausage pasta all were superb. Huge portions so some of most everything went home with us, too. Chef has a light touch, subtle flavors that somehow explode in your mouth. Shared a brioche bread pudding that was incredibly good. A leisurely, delicious meal with outstanding service in a simple setting. A really wonderful evening of food and wine, we loved it all.

I love Della Terra and have been there many times. The food is always great and the service is as well. I highly recommend Della Terra.

My favorite neighborhood spot
I live a few blocks from Della Terra and have never had a bad meal there. Pasta is always perfectly cooked, the pizzas are great thanks to the wood-burning oven and there are a lot of great wines by the glass. So glad it's in walking distance, but it's worth a longer trip too.

I had not been here before but met some clients for lunch there because of the location. The service was excellent and the food was very good. Everyone liked what they had. They have a Monday night pasta special which a co-worker of my client had heard about and after eating lunch there my client said they would come back to check out the pasta special as they live in the neighborhood and thought the food was quite nice. Indoor and outdoor areas were very nice. Music was a touch loud but maybe I am getting old.

One of my favorite restaurants in LA. Every dish I've had here has been wonderful, staff is friendly, the decor is inviting. A little piece of Italian heaven.

Best Italian in neighborhood
I've been here 5 times and I've never been disappointed. Food is always fantastic, and it's stumbling distance home. Perfect!

This restaurant has such a lovely ambiance inside and out. The food is delicious and dining there is always a great experience. There are not enough places in Los Angeles with good salads but Della Terra has hit the mark right on this one too.

Very cute place for a casual weekend food outing. The pizzas are delicious and the patio is relaxing.

We had two simple pastas and they were both excellent. My portion was huge but it was so delicious that I wolfed it down. To top it off, we ordered the butterscotch budino and the chocolate souffle cake for dessert and they were great too. Additionally, we really enjoyed the maitre'd who was a fun guy able to make recommendations confidently.

Great Food, Great Service
Met a friend for lunch and found the food to be delicious and the service warm and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone who is looking for a wonderful meal. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet for lunch given how good the food was. We shared the salmon and beet salad with hazelnuts and both were yummy.

Great ambiance and very comfortable
Great ambiance and very comfortable seating. Service was great and the staff was very friendly. There was a gentleman, who quite possibly seemed to be the manager or owner, was very involved with his customers and his staff. He checked on us regularly to ensure that we had a great dining experience. I had the shrimp scampi and my fiance had the lamb, and both were very delicious. We would definitely come back and recommend this place to others.

The food was top notch. I went for Dine LA and I would be glad to come back for other occasions.

A Sure Bet
Della Terra is one of our neighborhood finds where you can ALWAYS go to get a great meal. The service is amazing and the food is incredible. There are more than a dozen items on the menu that are favorites and we frequent the restaurant at least one to two times a week. A must go! On top of that they are completely affordable and have great specials throughout the week.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is a good meal with large portions. We split everything and were stuffed. The preparation and quality of the food is great and the server was helpful and discreet.

Excellent Food and Drink
I have been to Della Terra several times, tried several different dishes, and have always been impressed. And the wine selection is excellent. My only quibble on my last visit was somewhat slow service. This is the first time this has happened, and I suspect either the restaurant was unexpectedly short-staffed or unexpectedly busy. Either way, the overall experience was great, and I recommend Della Terra highly.

Went to Della Terra for the first time this past Tuesday night for their $15.00 3-course "Tuesday Special" (appetizer, entree and desert). What a great deal! This week, the special featured spaghetti and meatballs. This wasn't just your average spaghetti and meatballs - it was a portion big enough for a family of four - the pasta was PERFECTLY cooked and tossed in a creamy tomato sauce, served with 4 huge (and incredibly delicious) meatballs. The desert was the most divine butterscotch pudding (more like a creme brulee) topped with salted caramel. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. And although the special salad was Caesar, they graciously substituted it for their chopped salad (at no extra charge), which was absolutely delicious.

Monday Night $10 Pasta Specials!
I went to Della Terra with four colleagues on a Monday night. We were surprised to find out that on Monday's DT has $10 pasta specials. There are about ten different $10 pastas to choose from. I chose the pasta pomodoro because I wasn't that hungry! It was a very generous portion of outstanding pasta. Probably, the best pasta pomodoro I've ever had. It is made with a red sauce and not chopped tomatoes. I was stuffed but I ate EVERY bite! You start with "bread", that is a bit more like a cracker that is served with an excellent oil/basil mixture. Delicious! We shared the caramel pudding for dessert, which was creamy goodness. The server was lovely, but the service was a little slow! All-in-all a great experience and we will return.

Stay with the pastas. The meat entrees are not great

This is a neighborhood gem.
This is a neighborhood gem. The heirloom tomatoes and buratta was the perfect temperature, sweet and a must have. The pastas were homemade and delicious. After going to so many small plate restaurants it was nice to get a good portion of excellent food. Prices were extremely reasonable. Can't wait to go back!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
great weeknite go to
Good food, very reasonable pricing and a very social and pleasant owner adds up to a great neighborhood drop in place.
Family, casual, big portions and killer specials make this a place to try in this sometimes pricey area.

Great date place.
Had a lovely experience. We loved the octopus salad. Not rubbery, but tender and warm. The branzino was nice with fresh grilled asparagus and broccoli. Felt light and healthy. Would def go back.

Della Terra : Well kept secret
WIth an original menu and a great location I was surprised to find it modestly existing across the street from CBS Fairfax and the opposite corner from another Italian restaurant my friends thought they were taking me to. It was less noisy than the other one (thankfully) and offered a delicious meal for a wonderful price. I must say it's been years since I've seen a restaurant offers a prix fixe meal. We had Cesar salad, trout with vegetables and butterscotch pudding. I went back another day for that pudding and had lamb skewers that were tender and delicious.

Wonderful experience every time
The food, service, and ambiance at this restaurant are so great that we frequent it a lot. I love the salmon entree with celery root puree as well as the lasagna, salads, side dishes, skewers, wine etc. I could go on and on!! Every time we go no matter who we take loves it too. Overall a fantastic restaurant.

Great value and vibe
This is a cool little place on Beverly and a perfect way to spend an evening outside eating tasty and well-prepared Italian food. Pizzas are excellent and the Pasta Limone is outstanding.

Love this restaurant. Always satisfied whenever I go there. Totally recommend this place to my friends.

Finally an authentic Italian in CA!
I've tried all of their pasta dishes on the menu and cannot decide which one to get each time because every one of their dish is so good!!
All of their salads are good, great appetizers, the pesto sauce and olives that come with bread before the meal is another meal in itself. SO good!!
One of the many perks about this place is that they are not too busy usually, so I hope it stays that way and that not a lot of people find out about this place because I don't want it to get too busy for it to be inaccessible haha
Service here is impeccable, everyone is so nice. It's also BYOB.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were referred by dear friends and had a great time! What was particularly nice was that the owner knew our friends and was very gracious.
