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

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

This old Temecula standard, recently closed at their old location on Ynez Rd. and my wife and I were sad to see them go. An email announcing their reopening in a nearby location was a welcomed message. We visited last night and were pleasantly surprised. Although the restaurant is in a smaller setting , The food is as good or... More

Scarcella's has been around forever. I remember eating here back in the mid 1980's and 1990's. They were in a different location then and you could order your food from one of the old style telephones that sat on your table. They have since moved to the location they are in now, and if there is a reason I don't... More

My wife and I decided to drop by after the movies on a Tuesday afternoon at around 4 pm. I asked about their 2 for 1 pizza special that they offer on Tuesday. The waitress said I would need the coupon to get the deal. I told her I left it at home and she said she could not offer... More
