From out of town, first time here. Totally worth tasting. The food was prepared perfectly. Just the right amount with lots of flavor. Highly recommend

We were in Temecula for one night and were looking for a place to eat. I checked Trip Advisor, as I always do, and found Francesca's. Truly, I couldn't have done better. Francesca herself is a delight. I spilled water all over the table and my husband. She rushed in, moved our drinks to another table, got us situated and... More

Decent food but not worthy of the high prices that are on the menu. I had the chicken cooked in olive oil with garlic - good plate appearance with fresh vegetables and hot pasta. The chicken gave the look of frozen/thawed, was dry with light to no taste of garlic. I'd say the sides were eventful with the main entre... More

First visit so was anxious to taste, observe and take in the ambiance. Service was excellent, food was good and, overall, the experience was worthwhile. Thought the food was overpriced but the portions were adequate and presentation was good. The dining room was neat and clean. The three of us in our party enjoyed the atmosphere. The bar has a...

We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. The service is wonderful and very intuitive. The chef will create whatever you have a taste for and everything is always delicious. A one of a kind Italian eatery!

We love Italian food and this was close to where we were staying. There is really no view or atmosphere of anything. The caprese salad needed addition balsamic, however the cheese was fresh and fluffy. Ordered gnocchi and it was just OK, nothing special or anything that would make be come back. For the price it was overpriced. Service was... More

This is some of the best Italian food in the Temecula area but the location is deceptive. The resturant is small and intimate in a strip center location....however the interior is well appointed and the aromatic sent guides you right into the door. Wonderful food, wonderful service...and will definitely be back often to enjoy!!

Always a treat. The food is fresh, homemade and magnificent. Excellent service and beautiful atmosphere. The owners are welcoming, friendly and make you feel like you are in their dining room. We are lucky to have Francesca's in Temecula.

Whenever I am in the area, we seem to end up here. Central to family and friends in SoCal, we meet here for dinner. And like last review every-bit as good as mama. Good wine and food at reasonable prices. Good service and atmosphere. Lots of locals and regulars the night we were there.
