The food was outstanding (the bread was delicious) but the linguine al pesto arrived lukewarm and the server did not come back to check on us until I had already eaten a fair portion (quickly). Otherwise, the service would have been five stars.

Small restaurant with very limited outdoor seating. Food was great, wine was also great. Staff was attentive. Would definitely go back.

This was a delicious authentic Italian dinner that was long overdue. We were so lucky to find this hidden gem on Open Table. We sat outside and it was surprisingly very quiet despite the nearby construction. The ambience wasn’t ideal but was outweighed by the wonderful service. They were very attentive and made our evening out so special. The food was amazing. We got the ravioli special, tagliatelle in ragu, and lasagna to take away! We can’t wait to return.

I had the ravioli filled with some chicken and a cream sauce. It was quite tasty but light on the chicken. Also has a dinner portion side insalata mista with a creamy balsamic dressing which was good though. I had the gooey toffee cake with vanilla ice cream as a dessert which was very good. They’ll bring some nice freshly baked bread slices to smear with oil and vinegar at the beginning. Nice expansive wine list. I would come back. Excellent service.

Compared with other times we've been here, the food was inferior. I've had better caesar salads. The veal parm was good, but not exceptional. The sauteed spinach was excellent, as was the dessert--gooey something. The scampi dish was the most disappointing. It could have used a more flavor/sauce, but the cappellini was extremely overcooked. Perhaps I should have asked for it al dente.

We ate outside, so the ambience couldn't have been expected to be good.

Nevertheless, we'll be back, given our long history of really liking this restaurant.

During the pandemic, it was nice to see that the restaurant was open and the outdoor seating was enclosed by a tent with heaters. The food was superb. Such a blessing to unwind in outdoor dining.

Food and service were excellent, as always. Marked down this time for two COVID-related reasons. First, Delatorre's has added walls to the outdoor dining tent, leaving only one side uncovered which reduces the air flow (and may not comply with the county's regulations). Patrons (especially older ones) remove their mask upon being seated and often do not replace them, as though their table had a protective shield around it. The folks next to us were talking loudly and laughing, which would be great if any of them bothered to put their masks on. Others walked past us to the bathroom unmasked. As much as I love the food here, some of the patrons made me feel unsafe. Sad to say, we may wait for vaccination before returning.

We’ve been here scores of times, never disappoints. I think it’s the best restaurant in Pleasanton based on the very good food very reasonably priced.

Faves are:
- Pizza - best in town, we go simple and get either mushroom or pepperoni.
- wedge salad- probably my favorite wedge
- Caesar Salad - fantastic
- Cornish game hen - delicious

Finish it off with the best desert on the planet - the gooey butter cake with Chocolate and Caramel sauce and vanilla gelato. Incredible

This was an amazing restaurant. My GF and I had our valentines dinner there. The only reason I have lower scores to ambiance and noise is the forced outside seating that they have to endure. The staff treated us like family and the food was all delicious. I was able to go “off menu” and order what we wanted for an appetizer as well.

This was our return to outdoor dining after a couple of months. Although I suspect the tables and chairs might be set a little less than 6 feet apart, the staff was very careful: they had masks and gloves, and handled bread with tongs. They had plenty of gas heaters and raised the temperature on request. The food was as delicious as ever and they offered a full menu. There was a longer delay than normal between the soup/salad and entree, but not long enough for us to question our waiter. We're glad Delatorre's is back. We'll be back, too-and soon.

Food was good as always. I marked down for service and ambience because, after we were seated and served, the staff seated another couple directly behind me. I was not aware that this couple had been seated closer than six feet from me until their service had already begun. This is a good restaurant, and the staff is usually on top of things, but this time they messed up.

This amazing Italian dining has all the characters that you need to feel like you are in "ITLAY!" First, their service is out of this world....we felt like family and best of all the recommendations that were suggested made the meal perfect!! Second, the freshness of "ALL" our plates were outstanding: we had calamari, salad (mista primavera), margarita pizza, penne picante, and their homemade pudding!!! Amazing!! We ate outside with the warmth of their outstanding patio ambience!! Make the trip to small Italy!! Thank you!!

We had comfortable seating in a shielded booth, excellent service and semi-privacy. The cuisine was superb. We selected from the "Specials of the Day" menu.

My Bride had a delicious Crab Lasagna dinner with salad and a Cannelloni for desert. I had an exquisite Clam Chowder and Jambalaya Risotto with Old Fashion Spumoni ice cream for desert.

We were cheerily welcomed and politely served by attentive staff and the owner and left well satisfied if not a bit overfull.

Wonderful menu and moderate prices.

This was our second outdoor dining experience. The restaurant added canopies for protection from the elements, and patio heaters for warmth. Except for a long delay between the salads and the entrees, the service was excellent. The food was quite good, as always. Other than some parking lot noise which was beyond their control, the restaurant provided an enjoyable dining experience.

Our first indoor dining experience for almost seven months. The food was excellent, as always. The fifth star is for cleanliness and sanitizing, excellent table spacing, raised dividers between booths, and masked servers. Instead of a bread loaf to share, each diner got a single large roll with a pack of breadsticks; quite adequate. The rest of the meal was served as it would have been in the past. We felt very comfortable and relaxed, and are anxious to return.
