Gourmet Food

This restaurant occupied a larger location within the city, and provided gourmet quality entrees and desserts. It has since relocated to this small location but fortunately the food is as it was before. Excellent. The bread for the olive oil and vinegar is some of the best you'll have. The staff... read more

based on reviews, we picked up a pizza from Scarcella's. Yelp and TripAdvisor said good things about the pizza. In our opinion, it was not good...thick crust, tasteless sauce, skimpy toppings. Oh well, again I continue my search for good pizza in California. On the other hand, the young ladies at the order desk were charming and efficient. Unfortunately Yelp... More

We tried the meatballs, pizza, and bowtie pasta with chicken. It is a good food! Very small and not fancy. It is owned by a local family and the service was outstanding!!!!

My hubby and I were in Temecula for the first time on a wine-tasting excursion. Out GPS would not find the restaurant we were first looking for, but after some agonizing moments of going around and around, we found this one. The mixup occurred due to the fact that the restaurant had moved and the GPS was not updating. Turned... More

Considering most delivery food is average, our 2 pasta dishes were perfect. Arrived very hot in about 50 minutes from bubbly smiling nice blonde delivery girl. This was perhaps the Best Italian food I have ever had, let alone delivery. Bread was a touch bland, but pasta and deserts were fantastic! Best delivery food on entire 3 week vacation in... More

Second night in Temecula and in need of food...pronto! Thumbed through hotel info and found Scarcella's menu. Called in for pizza delivery, and within no time hot pizza by a friendly delivery guy right to our room.

They are located in the corner of the shopping center so they might be difficult to find but they are more than worth the search. They are behind the Red Lobster. The location is small with several tables inside and outside in the patio area. Their pizza is one of the best I have tasted. A 14 inch pizza fully... More

We have gone to Scarcellas for years and saw they had moved and decided to try their new place. It is really a fancy pizza carry out joint, that they tried to make into fine dining, but kept the pizza counter. Wine tasted old, meals pricey and salads $6 to add. Food was not bad, but not worth $40 (... More

I haven't been to Scarcella's since they moved to new location. We met up with friends who dine there regularly.... Scarcella's did not let us down... We ate out on the patio... Four dined @ $ 64.00 & I had a glass of wine!!! Reasonable & DELICIOUS!!!

Scarcellas had moved from a large Italian restaurant off Rancho California Rd to a better location if you want to shop at the Promenade in Temecua. Located in a small strip mall just in front of Costco off Margarita Rd, it can be a challenge to find. Scarcellas has been THE institution for Italian food since 1970s. Their new location... More
