One of the best neighborhood restaurants in the East Bay. We moved out of the area several years ago and returned to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary with some very close friends. We so very much enjoyed DeLatorre’s when we lived in Pleasanton and it was just as wonderful and delicious as always. The quality of the food is outstanding and the staff was just as great as always. Delatorre’s is a gem of a restaurant and we so appreciated and enjoyed our return visit for this very special occasion.

We saw De La Torre's on a recent episode of Check Please, Bay area and were immediately intrigued. Our real-life experience was a treat. We dined with another couple (also Italian) and we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the ambiance. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The daily specials were varied and very tempting. (Two in our group had the pot roast and loved it) The owner came to chat with us and explained how busy they became the weekend after the show aired. We spoke for a few minutes and she thanked us for our patronage. We told her we'd be back, and we will!

This restaurant offers a range of Italian dishes as well as daily specials that range from fish, veal, steak and chicken. The food is fine dining at very affordable prices. The wine selection is very nice and their desserts are very special. We invited old friends to join us and they were very satisfied. We opened with salads, then the dinner entree with wine and finished with desserts and coffee. We were all very pleased with the portion size, great service and the ambiance. The restaurant has a very accessible location.

This is an extremely authentic Italian restaurant, offering a dining experience much as you would expect in Italy. Everyone was happy, enjoying the ambiance and good food. Our server was very helpful, not only suggesting choices, but offering explanation why his recommendations should be accepted. As an aside, all of his recommendations were "spot on"

Found this restaurant through Check Please Bay Area show. Made reservation for 6:30 on a Saturday night. Place was already full upon arrival at 6:00pm. Initially the service was a little to quick, hadn't had time to review the menu. The food was great, (Salmon and pasta). The wines were somewhat reasonably priced. Didn't check for a corkage fee ahead of time. Would definitely go back again when in the area.

I was anxious to try this restaurant as I had heard the food was very good. Unfortunately, 3 of our party ordered the Halibut special and it was terrible. The Halibut was suppose to be pan seared however, it was either terribly overcooked or re-heated from the night before. For $28 we expected more and all feel we got a lot less. The others in our party had pasta dishes off their regular menu and were very good. I suggest that if you are a first timer, you stick to what they do best. Service was great.

The ambience makes you instantly forget you are in a strip mall. The two times I've been there, and had different entrees, have both been good. A pasta one time, perfectly cooked, fish another, perfectly cooked and fresh with good texture. The prices are reasonable, and portions good - not gigantic and not too small. It seems great for families and for couples. That said, the service is less personable than at some other family restaurants and less professional (never came back after entrees were served to see how things were one time, other time, far too long to get water and that same night, far too long between no dessert thanks and the check.. Needed to flag them down.). The lack of personality is a little disappointing in my opinion. But, if you don't care if you get to know the owners or become recognized as a regular it is a really nice restaurant to which i would return and recommend.

I was just recently introduced to this beautiful restaurant and love coming here for lunch. I have only come for lunch since working across the street, but the few times I have come in, it's always been an excellent experience. Thank you for the great food and service.

Food was wonderful. The two young gals at the reception desk (Bridget and I sadly can't recall the name of the other) were fabulous! Such a great representation for your restaurant. Sweet, knowledgeable and excited about making suggestions on the menu. You can tell they have a great history with the restaurant and they have such pride in working there. Bravo!

Dinner was amazing from start to finish. The only thing better than the food was the service. We have only lived in the immediate area for a few months so we've been trying all the local restaurants to find our go to and as far as Italian is concerned this will be the spot for us!

After seeing the excellent reviews on Check, Please Bay Area, we thought we'd try this restaurant. The bruschetta was well done, although it could have used more basil. The risotto was flavorless even though the ingredients were good. Basically, it needed seasoning - herbs, broth, etc. I understand from the others at our table that the short ribs, though tender, were also not well flavored. The veal scaloppini was, on the other hand, tender and tasty. The desserts, however, were quite good, and better than most Italian restaurants.

Not sure we'll be back, although we did appreciate the excellent and friendly service.

Food was very good. Excellent selection even for me being gluten free. My only complaint was kale came with my meal and I can’t eat kale so I asked for the spinach which is a side dish and I had to pay $5.00 for it, I think for the price they should have substituted it or offered a different vegetable.
