Great homemade Italian food. All the dishes are excellent. Love the Tilapia!! Never had a bad meal. Always more than you can eat. Great service. One of our favorite places to go.

I heard good things about this restaurant from the hotel we were staying at. We also met a couple while waiting for our table, that live in the area and love this place. The service was great but the food was awful. I don't know how anyone could consider this food great or good for that matter. The soup appeared... More

Well I had an hour to eat and found this place via trip advisor. Walked in and was greeted promptly and was seated less than 3 minutes. They have two menus and lucky for me it was before 6 pm. There best for less is how I would say it. I ordered the minestrone soup and fettuccine bareless. Fresh and... More

We were looking for a nice restaurant to try and we were pleasantly surprised! I'm from Sacramento, where you can always find something unique, so I was hoping to do that here. We went in and had to wait for a table so we sat at the bar. The sweetest man served us and told us all about him and... More

Found this little gem off the I-15 in Lake Elsinore. They have an outdoor patio that had a singer doing his thing, but we sat inside. Anna took great care of us, bread was really good as a starter. Caprese salad was very fresh, and salads were fresh and perfectly sized. Dinners we all huge, too much to finish. The... More

We stay at Lake Elsinore, CA each year as we head to Glen Ivy Hot Springs. The first 2 years - we dined at a restaurant that we loved. ALAS, upon arriving May 21- we drove to downtown Elsinore, and the restaurant was closed. We then checked with the locals and found another Italian restaurant. Vincenzo's Olive Tree was mentioned...

This is the easiest review I have ever written. This place is a nightmare. The absolute worst slop I have ever eaten so bad in fact it is inedible. The chef has no clue how to prepare food let alone Italian food. Its disgusting. The menu has almost 100 entrée items and well over that if you include desert and... More

Vincenzo's Olive Tree is a family owned and operated, long-established Lake Elsinore home-style Italian restaurant. And it's Really Italian! Vincenzo himself is usually there, greeting diners and making everyone feel at home. Food is authentic and very good, prices didn't make my credit card wince, and from Vincenzo himself to the people in the kitchen, everyone is friendly. We go... More

I found out about this place from a friend - we met for lunch. I couldn't believe there was a restaurant this good in Lake Elsinore that I didnt know about! I've tried several dishes here and really liked all of them. The puttanesca is very tasty!
