Amazing Food and Atmosphere

We heard about this place from locals in Temecula and saw it had a great rating on Trip Advisor. We loved this cute little Italian Restaurant, and it reminded us of a true authentic Italian place in Italy. The staff was all very friendly, and we loved all of the food. We also chose to have a bottle... read more

We went there because they advertised lasagna made with béchamel sauce, one of our favorites. Only to be disappointed to discover the lasagna was made with ricotta. The bruschetta we ordered, the bread was sliced way too thick so instead of enjoying another favorite we ate the toppings off the bread. The Italian wedding soup was so loaded with potatoes... More

Mimi got all food and drink orders straight, our friends raved about each of their orders (from seafood linguini with mussels, to pizza), the friendly and prompt service, and the wonderful tastes. We hosted the same group at Gourmet Italia's more informal spinoff restaurant Spuntino's two years ago, and some of these friends had hoped we would go back there,... More

Great food, great service and great atmosphere!!! Server was very friendly and very helpful with the menu and wine selection. Place is small but very cozy and romantic atmosphere. Prices are a little high but so is the quality of the food. Very worth it!!!

Had a wonderful meal, Ceasar Salad, and Lasagna. Service excellent, food outstanding, Also had a Sicilian Red Wine by the glass that was very good, they did not offer local wines by the glass which was disappointing. Also they did not give me my v]credit card back, and I was forced to cancel it the next day and request a... More

Being from St. Louis, Mo, one of the best places in the country to get authentic Italian food, we are so happy that this restaurant came to our town. The owner is fantastic, welcoming all the guests, the wait staff is also awesome and the food is excellent. We always go there for special occasion dinners or lunches. I also... More

I love restaurants where waiters have personality, represent the culture and can take orders for a large group without writing anything down. We had a group of 14 and all seemed to be happy with their meal.

We had dinner at Gourmet Italia for the first time tonight and it was excellent! I'm half Italian and picky with my Italian food, but the food here is wonderful. We had very good Caesar salad to start, then the seafood pasta (Pescatore) for our main course. The seafood pasta is huge and full of mussels, clams, and calamari, in... More

We have been here MANY times now and honestly it pains me to write a 1 star review. BUT the owners indifference and conceited attitude assures we will never go here again. We used to go here at least once a week, and we always bring any friends or family who come into town in to to experience Gourmet Italia.... More

Went here during a weeknight for dinner. Place was busy, but not crowded. We got a table in the back by ourselves, so it was plenty quiet. Decor of the place is very homey and what you would expect for an Italian place. Service was exceptional. We had servers checking on us frequently, and water glasses were never empty. Our... More
