My family and I are in the area for a wedding. I looked on trip advisor and read the positive reviews, so we decided to give it a chance and we were not disappointed!! Every one, 5 adults, loved their food!! The waitstaff was excellent and willing to work with my 90 year old grandparents!! (Sometimes the elderly can be... More

Paumbo's is situated just off the main street of Old Town Temecula and has inside and outside seating. The interior is essentially one open space, not super large but comfortable. there are tables and banquettes. Palumbo's is a family business and the wait-staff is efficient and friendly. their bruschetta was excellent with a nice topping of tomatoes with the starch... More

Very good service and excellent food. This restaurant makes their meatballs and sausages in house. I had a dish with the sausages and it was great, fennel sausages. Most of their sauces and pasta dishes are home grown too. Overall, Four Spoons. We will return.

Excellent food. Even better service as all the wait staff insured our party had everything needed. Felt as though they all worked a team. Had the pork chop in Marssla thick cut not overcooked. All my friends had great meals too

This is my second time in this restaurant. First time was great...this is why we came back. It was a Friday night, the place was busy. We had a reservation for four table outside....no problem. It took at least 10 min for someone to take our drink order...we were hungry and so we ordered our dinner at the same time.... More

Palumbo's is a great little Italian restaurant with great food very near the heart of Old Town Temecula. The service was excellent and we ordered the Jalapeno Shrimp Fettucine and the Shrimp Angel Hair pasta. We finished off our meal with Creme Brule and would definitely eat her again!

We may have had a better Italian meal, but we can't remember a better place than Palumbo's. We were in the area for a month and ate here at least once a week, in spite of dozens of Temecula options. The Spaghetti Carbonara was a favorite, made with Capacolla instead of the traditional bacon. Best ever. Had it twice Not... More

I think without a doubt this is some of the best italian food I have ever eaten. We stopped in for lunch during the week, so it was not busy (4-5 tables). We ordered the fried zucchini as an appetizer. When I commented to the waitress how good it was, she informed me the owners grow it in their own... More

Dined quite late and were the last to leave but did not feel under pressure to leave. Good menu with fine quality food and attentive waiting staff. Dined alfresco which was nice as the restaurant is on a quiet street just off the main road. The prices were reasonable too.
