In all the years of living in Pleasanton, this has been our favorite place for special occasions because the food is always served with gracious class and food is full of flavor. We felt this way even before the remodel which is now many years ago. Really like the changes that were made. Also, they have a great wait staff.

We have been looking for a good Italian restaurant for quite some time now. And are so happy we have found it. De La Torre's is a wonderful place to eat amazing food.
We have been there twice now. Both times we had reservations. We were greeted immediately both times.
And had bread and water at the table as soon as we were seated.
My husband had the Vegetarian Calzone both times and is still talking about how good it was. The crust is soft and just a bit chewy with a nice brown crust on it. There is plenty of filling and flavor.
He ordered the calamari app the first time and it was light and perfectly cooked. The dipping sauce was light and flavorful. It complimented the calamari instead of being too heavy like it can be other places.
I had the risotto both times. It had fresh spring veggies and I do mean fresh. They allow you to ask for what you want in the risotto so I added Italian sausage and roasted garlic the second time.
I ordered the Antipasto app the first time and it was so good. It had a whole head of roasted garlic, olives, Salami, roasted red pepper, pepperoncini, and roasted artichoke hearts. It was enough food for a light meal in itself.
Our drinks were refilled without asking before they got to the bottom. This is huge for us. The staff is awesome. They work as a team and are clearly focused on the guest experience.
We will be back and often. It is worth the trip to Pleasanton from Concord for us. The only downside is it can be quite noisy when it is busy. But still so worth it.

First time here and we will be back. Service was excellent and the food was quite good with reasonable prices. A neighborhood spot, cozy inside. Do NOT let the the fact it is located in a strip mall deter you. It feels completely different once inside. We'll be back!

Just flew last night in from vacationing in Italy and Spain, and where did we decide to go for dinner? De La Torre’s because the food is so delicious and the service is great. Our group had the calamari appetizer, the sole, lasagne, and pasta and shared a tiramisu dessert. Wonderful dinner for our homecoming night!

De La Torre is our date night place to go. If you haven't tried the parchment bakes sea bass, you're missing out. It's the most Devine thing I've tasted so far. I'm a fan of the Prosciutto & Mozzarella Calzone but this takes the cake. Thank Lynn and staff. Wonderful as always.

business luncheon for 3. Ravioli, Pork Cutlets Piccatta and Chicken Milenese ordered.
The side on the Chicken dish was a dressed arugula but the Arugula had a lot of yellowing leaves in it which just looks old and a little unappetizing. The rest of the meal was good.
Will try other dishes in the future.

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.

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.
