Great restaurant - had dinner there tonight! Had Osso Bucco and husband had wild mushroom risotto. Service was excellent and our waiter was very friendly! I couldn't ask for any more.

I often go to Italian restaurants for two reasons, 1. I am italian and cook Italian, and 2, to determine if it is an American Italian restaurant or an Italian Italian restaurant. Don't get me wrong, I like American italian food too,but when you eat Italian food from Italy you lived there for a while, you just differentiate the two... More

No comments to explain how amazing... Just try!!! You WON'T be disappointed!!! For large groups or an intimate date, you can't go wrong. Alex, Angelo and gang are authentic, family feeling Italians who make you never want to leave... Become a member of their wine club while you're there...

Great authentic italian restaurant! Intimate ambiance, great prices and awesome food! Owner is super friendly and cares about his costumers. Been there over 3 times and have always a great time! Good wine and lots of option. Funghi risotto is a must!

The Spaghetti Carbonara was simply delicious and their house made olive tapenade was to die for. The service is relaxed but attentive. This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Temecula! And a romantic setting for our 25th anniversary.

We walked from the embassy suites after 4 hour's of driving. First off the attitude of the staff was very attentive. The special's all sounded great. We shared the watermelon, beets, frizzy lettuce, pistachios and Gorgonzola cheese salad with a reduction of balsamic vinegar and evoo. Then we shared the 16 oz veal chop, baked with a blue cheese crumble... More

It might be unfair to rate just a 4 because ive only been once on valentines. With a reservation we waited 45 mins to get a table and the servers were very polite but overwhelmed. Food and atmosphere is awesome! Will definitely go again on a different night.
