De La Torre's Trattoria
The wine list showcases exceptional and unusual varietals from small producers and family wineries in Italy and in California.
The service is friendly, efficient and professional.
Simply put, we feature delectable food at a fair price, food people want to eat everyday.
Service and food were excellent as always. Menu is always new and enticing. Berry cobbler is not to be missed! We wanted to bring a second one home to savor at a later time.
Great food and service! Not easy to find in the big chain restaurants.
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"
Always wonderful service and excellent food! Love taking out of town visitors, celebrate birthdays or spending time with friends!
Great food, atmosphere and service. The restaurant has great wine list and daily specials.
excellent Italian flavors. wonderful salad. nice portions. bread pudding was outstanding/
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.
A gourmet family restaurant. We’ve been going for 20 years. It is simple superb.
Always enjoy dining here! Whether it is for a special occasion or just because, the Food is always amazing and the service is great! We always leave full and happy :)
The food is to die for and the service is correct and prompt. Not fancy but homey.
I have been to this restaurant many times. It is always great. The food is fabulous as also the service!
We enjoyed our meal very much! We will be going back again!
Food outstanding, service great (thanks Pepe!), good wine and dessert. Can't ask for more! And Double Bubble gum when you leave.
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.
Extensive menu with fun specials. Veal scallopini was terrific, wonderful flavor. Ambiance was great and the service was very good. We are going back to try more dishes.
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.
Wonderful food - excellent service!
For birthday celebration- spaghetti and meatballs for birthday girl. Others shared Eggplant with burrata cheese and special order of linguine with clams in EVOO garlic basil. Very accommodating. Senior friendly. Included birthday slice of cake. Referred by CHECK PLEASE BAY AREA.
Excellent real style pizza and specialty Italian entre selections.
Always delightful and consistently delicious food. Welcoming environment.
This is a wonderful Pleasanton restaurant. The wine list is very good and priced well, the food we enjoyed was the best we have had at a restaurant in a very long time. Our server could not have been more profession nor friendly. All in all, a five star experience.
Great community family restaurant.
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!
From the outside it is a strip mall style feel, but once you enter you feel like you are in someone's home and treated that way also. very nice, great service, great food, a must try!
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.
Great service but even better dinner. A real local favorite!
Great service, delicious food and appreciated the complimentary birthday cake!
We've eaten at De La Torres several times and find it to be a great value with a comfortable, neighborhood-like setting. One of the key reasons we keep returning is that this is one of the only Italian restaurants near our home where Veal Parmesan is served. It's always very good and comes with generous portions of veal and pasta.
Good fried calamari. Tasty pasta alle vongole. Veal scallopine good also. Dessert star was the nice size tiramisu.
Tables for two are small. A bit cramped with narrow walkways.
The food tasted good, but gave me an upset stomach all night.
It was a friend’s Birthday and we were all treated so wonderful. She had seen the restaurant on a tv show and was excited to have lunch to celebrate. Everyone loved it. I am lucky and go there at least once a month and it has always been awesome. Thanks for making my friend’s birthday special!
Overall, the ambience was good but the food portions were very small and pricy.
Good food and service. Never felt rushed.
This is a nice little gem of an Italian place in a strip mall in Pleasanton. The service is excellent and the food value is very good, my wife and I both had leftovers to take home so the portions are pretty generous.
This is one of our regular spots, and our visit last week was just as wonderful as all the rest have been! We have been going to De la Torres for years and the same staff has been there the whole time which really gives it the family feel. The food is always wonderful and the bread pudding is to die for!
Went with friends the food is out of this world. We started with fired calamari, pizza margherita , fine italian red wine, fresh wild king salmon, gnocchi, catolette alla parmigiana, and cannaloni. Ended with peanut butter chocolate pie. What a great dinner with friends. We’ll all definitely be back.
Our reservations always waiting for us and greeted by Leigh the owner making you feel welcomed. However, the Italian
food is just the best! Original (no conveyor belt) pizza and plenty of specials to choose from. You don't stay in business for over 25 years in neighborhood restaurant without loyal local patrons. 5 Stars here!
