“Great food, so-so service”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Delicious food in tremendous portions. Hubby asked to substitute sauted spinach in place of pasta on his yummy shrimp dish. There was as much spinach on his plate as there would have been pasta (and no upcharge for this swap, either!!!). Side salads (come with entrees) were also large and colorful!

Service? That's another story. 2 others tables were seated after us, served their food/dessert, and left before we even got ours. Waiter took forever to acknowledge us and take our order. We had to ask for the whereabouts of our waiter and food 2X. It wasn't even busy - no excuse for this lack of attention and amateurish service.

“Wonderful Italian”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

There are so many Italian restaurants out there that it is difficult to find a truly exceptional one in all of the clutter. La Toretta is one restaurant you should try. The dinner portions are very large and very tasty. Their marinara is unique. The green lipped mussels were as good as any I have had while vacationing in New Zealand! The dinner meals were so good that we went back two days later for pizza. We did not waste our time. We will return to this restaurant again when we vacation in Weston.

“Good.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Pricey but good. Worth it! I had a pizza and it was good. Tried chicken salad and it was good too. The service and ambience were good.

“They deliver!!!!!!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Try the chicken roll its out of this world.

Service is not always the best and food takes for ever to come out. But the food makes up for it.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed November 28, 2009

Ok Italien restaurant. Noisy inside, nice outside. Service very good, but the food was bland, and really nothing special. I think there are better Italians in the area.
