One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Southern California. If you like authentic Italian fare with a great glass of wine then make sure to visit this place. Took my dad here for Father's Day and the service was still stellar. They also have a large room to accommodate large groups. They are closed Mondays.

Let me make it easy for you... Check this place out! This is exactly the type of restaurant that I like to try and I was blown away...My wife and I were in Temecula for the weekend staying in the winery district but wanted to try someplace different to eat. We had friends from Carlsbad driving up to meet us... More

We had lunch here with friends. Being from out of town, I consulted trip advisor to find a good place and came up with this. It is difficult to find as the sign outside is tiny, but that was ok. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated Ina traditional sort of way with two main dining areas. Very clean. Waitress was... More

This place is impossible to find but keep looking, it's worth it. 1st course was an unusual combination: roasted beet and watermelon salad. Weird but incredibly good with pistachios, frisée and a citrus dressing. Next was really tender Osso Bucco which can be fatty, but not here. Dessert was some fancy date and pistachio creamy thing (not really descriptive, but... More

We have eaten several times at Gourmet Italia and always like to take someone that has not been before. Service is excellent and the food is so authentic, fresh and amazing! When you go you must try the owners own wine, a little pricey but oh what a treat!

Probably the most popular restaurant in Temecula. Informal with very good food at reasonable prices. It would certainly stack up with many Italian restaurants in cities that support Italian food. Pasta was excellent with wide choices, excellent salads and appetizers, good soup, good clams and mussels. All in all...a nice dining experience. Hard to get reservations.

We were a party of four at Gormet Italia and had four fantastic meals. We all had various pasta dishes and loved them all. Our waitress was very attentive yet we were able to linger longer than usual without being rushed. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but really done nicely inside. It wasn't noisy, yet had... More

Don't let the shopping center location fool you...once you walk through the doors of this Italian dining establishment it exudes old world warmth and charm. Best food by far in all of the Temecula Valley. You will be greeted and welomed by native Sicilian Owner and staff. Freshest ingredients, superb flavors. Great for a business lunch and even better for... More

Excellent service with great food and home style atmosphere. Informal but upgrade real gourmet Italian plates with a good wine selection and not exorbitant price for it
