Every time my wife and I have come here we've had such a great time. The food is top notch. The servers are both helpful, knowledgeable, and complete the atmosphere with their banter. The owner is known to visit every table asking about your meal. Live bands frequent the place and play appropriate music for the experience. You definitely get... More

Real Italian waiters, a friendly, personal vibe spearheaded by its Sicilian owner, incredible food... this is isn't your typical chain Italian restaurant. It's authentic. It's an experience. It's my favorite place to dine in Temecula.

Arriving at the mall this place is located in you wonder what kind of food am I in for. Well, walking in you immediately feel as if you have gone to another country. It is very quaint and the staff is excellent. Everytime we have gone (3 x's now) we have been seated promptly and then been welcomed by the... More

The food is fabulous. Venue is small but service and quality make it a perfect place to enjoy Italian dining. Restaurant is popular with locals so can be busy on weekends.

Our son and his wife live about five minutes away and they had invited us to go to dinner with them to this "wonderful, to die for" Italian restaurant. We all met there with our four month old grandson and our son began to order appetizers. Three in total! Lobster ravioli, bruschetta and rabbatta (I think that's what it's called).... More

Great food average service, highlighted my friends celebration! Small tight dining area with huge overhead tv featuring a Wine club/ farm disrupted our conversation. After 30 minutes we asked waiter if it could be shut off he acted indignant and hurt but after trying to make us feel bad he did shut it off.
