Now, That's Italian!

Stopped in for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and especially the food. Excellent! Looks to be a great place for dinner also -- we may try to get back here before our stay in Temecula is over.

the food and service were terrific. We had no room for desert as the portions were large. I had the lasagna which was wonderful. I would compare the food to many Italian restaurants we have been to. Enjoy.

My husband usually picks at his meal and eats less than half. At Palumbo's, he stops just short of licking the plate! The food and service are consistently terrific.

We have walked in with no reservations and told it would be an hour wait but got in within 15 min. The food is great and a very nice ambiance!

We were there on Mother's Day not the best day of the year to try to eat at a restaurant and we did not have reservations. However we arrived early and in part, because there were only three of us, we were seated immediately. The food and the service were excellent and the portions were all generous. They also give...

We tried this restaurant based upon trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed! Family owned business in old town Temecula with a lovely Italian faire menu, pleasant atmosphere, good service. Winning combo!

There are plenty of places to choose from in Temecula so we followed a shop keeper's advice and ate at Palumbo's. It was not busy at all and it took a while to be served (typical Italian style, perhaps), but we'd return for sure. Food was very good. We sat on the small patio and it was perfect for us.

Have now eaten there several times and always enjoyed. Pastas, meats, fish, and pizza. The soups are fresh and very delicious.

Stopped for a late lunch with my son. I was undecided and sought the recommendation from the staff- fresh turkey sandwich and what a choice! It was fabulous!! I am from the east coast so don't get the opportunity to have avocado to much, but what a compliment. My son had the Egg Plant Parmisian. He really enjoyed it as... More

Typical family Italian restaurant. Casual seating, nice decor, but not fabulous. They took care of us quickly as walk ins on a busy night which was very nice. Seating more for groups than couples. Food was excellent! Reasonable corkage fee. Service was good, not great but it was a busy night.
