Excellent Italian Restaurant

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... read more

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.

We overheard one of the waiters say this to another table. It was true. The service was stellar. Food so so. My manicotti florentine was tasty but not exactly hot out of the oven when it got to me. My husband had the pasta puttanesca which neither of us liked. Best part was dessert. I had spumoni ice cream and... More

We enjoyed a very nice mean this weekend. Our server was a delightful young lady, very cheerful. My husband had the putanesca which he very much enjoyed and I had the chicken with jalepeno cream, yum. We would return to this restaurant without hesitation
