This is THE most authentic italian food I have had since Italy! Truly delicious with a European atmosphere. Small and cozy but distinct in its experience.

The food here is outstanding with an excellent wine list as well but what I really love about this place is the open flame candles, low lighting, red walls with mirrors and a brass band many of the nights! There's no place like it in town or anywhere nearby truthfully! It's an experience not just a meal.

This place is just awesome - the food is outstanding, the menu is huge, all fresh made and the veg is from his own gardens. He also has a vineyard, but the wine so popular it sold out - next release in a couple weeks of the 2013 vintage. the people are friendly, there is no rush - we spent... More

We went for a friends birthday. It has great reviews and did not disappoint. LOVED LOVED it. We all had different entrees and all were good. Make a reservation, but if you cant get in, try calling. They are very accommodating.

The food was remarkable. I had the seafood pasta and the wife had lobster ravioli with a wonderful chianti. But we all agree the the service was the absolute best. Our server was Cara and she was so knowledgeable about all the food and drink. We can't wait to return here.

The menu here is extensive and authentic Italian. The owners come from Sicily and many of the servers are also seem to be from Italy.. We came for my husband's birthday and had a really good meal. He had pasta with tomato sauce and whole Italian Sausage and I had Veal Limone (aka Veal Picatta). Both were delicious. The house... More

The Inn at Europa Village recommended this restaurant and I am so happy they did. From the moment you walk in you are transported into an amazing atmosphere. The ambiance is fantastic and you can tell by the chatter the place is full of locals. Alex the owner stopped by every Table to say thank you and check in. Pictures... More

I love this restaurant! The Owner is from Italy so the food is authentic and delicious. The menu is diverse - there is something for everyone. Most of the staff is family, also from Italy, so the service is excellent. It's casual but also great for a date night. I've recommended this restaurant to a number of friends and family... More

I have eaten at numerous fine dining establishments and this is such a find. Alex the owner is personable and fun. Staff is attentive and menu and wine selection is wonderful. This place is great for romance or a night out. Not pricey for the quality. A must if you are in Temecula!!!
