Another wonderful meal at Delatorre’s! Great homemade pasta, halibut cooked perfectly, big finish with warm berry cobbler and vanilla gelato. We’ll be returning soon.

Unfortunately, my date and I arrived forty minutes Early for our reservation. But more Unfortunately we watched as patron after patron was seated ahead of us, even some who had arrived with NO reservations. When a party of seven was called for their table, I'd had enough(that group had been in the small waiting area for less than five minutes) so I advised the owner that we could wait no longer and left to find other accommodations. Disappointed o say the least

Would have thought De La Torre’s would have done something special (dessert?) for my mother’s 82nd Birthday - which was noted on the open table special request. Actually was very disappointed with them. We didn’t have to come there for her special occasion. Next time we will take our business somewhere else. Too bad as I really like to support the local businesses.

We ate here for the first time the other day and my my what a lovely surprise! First off it was so easy to make a reservation as I used Opentable app. My server Marty McFly was pretty darn awesome making great recommendations for our meal.

Calamari, crispy golden fried goodness
Bruchetta, maybe it was an off day?
Tagliatelle Bolognese, very meaty and the pasta was sooo good!
Linguine alla Marinara (I ordered with Tagliatelle), yummy!
Cannoli with pistachio filling, crunchy exterior and creamy center, not too sweet so perfect!

I had never been here before, but as soon as we sat down and met our server I knew I’d love it. I love good service and Martie stood out as one who provides it. She gave perfect tips on what to get, clued us in well to some specials and made us feel incredibly welcome. The topper was that every recommendation was fantastic. The food was some of the best Italian I’ve had in the area. We will go back to see Martie and to get great food.

I ordered the lasagna. The bottom was burnt and 2/3rds had no ricotta and the final 3rd had all the ricotta. Totally disappointed. It had some sort of white sauce that I couldn’t identify; also ordered the burrata and tomato salad. The salad was ok, tomatoes weren’t ripe and the burrata was poor, small amount and it seemed like it melted all over the salad.

Our family of four have been regular customers here (1-2 times per month, at least) for the past 5 years, since we moved to California. We always request the same server, who is outstanding, and are essentially treated like VIP’s. It then pains me greatly to write a negative review about De La Torre’s. It’s unfortunate that the portions have become so small that we pay $30+ per person and then need to go home and eat PB&J. We saw the owner there tonight, so she’s onsite and knows what’s going on.

It’s a sad day when I have to lose my previously favorite restaurant of 5 years.

Tortalini Pasta was tough. Soup was tasteless. Balsamic on tomato salad hardened like caramel making the salad hard to eat. The special stuffed chicken thigh was great. The bread pudding was great. Service was excellent. Ambiance is a feeling of being too crowded. The people are great. Willing to give it another try.

This place is awesome! Don't be fooled by the fact it is in a strip mall. One you walk in the ambiance takes you away! The service, the food is all great. This is our adult son's favorite restaurant. It is always his first choice. You won't be disappointed.

I'm quite surprised by the high reviews. I am guessing that the other diners have never been to Italy or had fresh homemade pasta before, because this place is on the same level as California Pizza Kitchen. Overpriced and mediocre at best, the epitome of suburban dining. I live in San Francisco and regularly pay as much if not more for food, but the quality should be reflective of the the price. For $15, I expect gnocchi in pomodoro sauce to taste better than sauce from a jar. Trader Joe's frozen gnocchi tastes better. My friend's Caesar salad with chicken was abysmal. The chicken was over cooked, dry, shriveled, and inedible. She was too timid to complain, but the waiter would have had to be visually impaired not to notice that her entire salad was untouched. A complete ripoff for $14. The best dish of the evening was the kids' meals of tortellini in butter. The location in a strip mall should have been a red flag. Will definitely never return, nor recommended to anyone. Save your time and money and dine elsewhere.

A favorite of ours for years. My husband loves their calazone. The red sauce is rich and flavorful. We look forward to our favorite, berry cobbler; buttery top and hot berry yum. Terrific service. Family owned and run.

Had a wonderful dinner -- we had a most enjoyable "light" dinner but that allowed us to enjoy dessert. We ordered the fonduta -- it isn't listed on the menu but is a yummy cheesy like pizza and also shared an antipasto salad. Wonderful food and service!!!

Had suggestion from friend that calamari was great, but it was average, and oily. My fish was tough and oily, saturated-oiled veggies were so thin as to be VERY over done. Wife's T-Bone was only a sliver-size steak on the "good"/tender side, so not impressed.
Too bad, perfect service. Not cheap, so not worth it. We drove from next town just to try it. Ah well.

We were seated promptly and the service was attentive but not overly so. Special summer salad had nectarines instead of peaches as written on menu, but it tasted fine. Baked ziti could have used more sauce, but the special pan-roasted chicken was outstanding, as was the special veal involtini. The Maysie Sangiovese was excellent; I understand why it is a house favorite. Overall, a very good dinner.
