We have eaten here many time before over about 10 years. Always loved this place but this time our experience just didn‘t stand up to the prior reputation. The service was absolutely poor this time, for the first time ever. The food ranged from good (the cheese pizza and the linguine marinara with clam sauce, shrimp and scallops) to positively mediocre (the seafood bisque and the panko crusted halibut both simply lacked flavor). We will come back, but we will also be looking for another great Italian restaurant.

Laid back and relaxing ambience with excellent service. Food portions were quite big to our surprise, but also quite tasty.

Love this restaurant, food is always superb. Our waiter was a bit absent, but we had our wine and chatted with our neighbors. They were waiting too. Our wonderful dinner more that made up for it.
And their desserts are to die for!

First time visiting. That is what I call authentic Italian food. Went on Valentine's and was surprised at the number of menu options to choose from. Would definitely recommend.

I HAD A RESERVATION AND SEATED US NEXT TO FOOD SERVICE DOORS. WHEN I ASKED FOR THE BOOTH THAT WAS OPEN SHE SAID THAT IT WAS RESERVED FOR 6:30 AND OUR RESERVATIONS WERE FOR 6:00. THE PERSON SEATING US WAS RUDE AND DID'NT GIVE A YOU KNOW WHAT ABOUT US AS CUSTOMERS. PLEASANTON RESIDENT FOR ALMOST 23 YEARS AND DO NOT PLAN ON GOING BACK. WE DID LEAVE AND WENT TO ANOTHER RESTAURANT.

We thoroughly enjoyed De La Torre's for dinner on a Saturday evening. We were able to get a reservation the same day for 7pm. Restaurant was busy but we got a booth! Had the calamari, Orange Roughy, Linguini alla Marinara and Creme Brulee. Food was great! Loved the sauce with the calamari and greens with the Orange Roughy. Creme Brulee could have been a little further flamed/hardened, but the raspberries & biscotti were a nice touch. Ambiance was wonderful - full restaurant but not too loud at all. Service was VERY attentive! Will definitely visit again.

Had another wonderful lunch at Delatorre’s.. One of our group wanted veal, which wasn’t on the lunch menu. They made a beautiful veal dish just for him! The fish and chips special included probably the best fries I’ve eaten in a long time...crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside.

Calamari wa very good. Pastas were very oily and too saucy. Staff very nice and service oriented. The food wasn’t that good that night anyway and plates looked inconsistent even though they were the same item.

I loved what I had and these comments do not detract from that. The king salmon was excellent. I know it’s expensive, but I could have used a little bigger piece. The Brussels sprouts tasted wonderful but for my tastes should have been cooked longer and made a bit softer (not mushy but not frankly hard).

Enjoyed the food and the crowd was lively for a strip mall location.....only drawback was the $18 corkage fee which was a little high for this location.

We have been coming to de la Torre’s for years. We typically orde pasta or other main courses for dinner which are very good. This time we ordered minestrone soup, good and a cheese pizza that was undercooked over cheesy and quite salty. Yuck.

Our dinner was excellent with the best duck we have ever had. This was the first time we have seen duck on the daily specials menu and we hope they have it again. While the fresh fish are always very good, don't overlook the other entrees. They can be excellent to outstanding.

We made reservations on a very busy night. Out table was ready right on time. We had also requested a quiet booth and they gave us the best table in the house. The service was prompt but not rushed. The best part was the food-- excellent! The prices were very fair and the staff quite friendly. We had a very good experience and plan to return often.

The food was fantastic and the service was amazing. They brought out the dishes already split into 2 plates for us to share without us even mentioning that. They gave us plenty of time to eat even though the place isn’t ver big. They also have a few large round tables to seat a family or a group of friends. So we will surely come back again in a group.

We don't go to De La Torre's Trattoria often enough.
Great food, great service, good wine choices, and reasonable prices.
So authentic!

The Calzone was just excellent.

The lasagna was also very good, just not as large of portions as expected.
