“We didn't like it as much as we hoped to.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

They don't have typical Italian, like pizza and meatballs. Everything is uniquely gourmet, and pricey. They have a variety of wines, but most of them we didn't recognize. It is small but very nicely decorated. It's been a few months since we tried it but have not returned. Maybe their menu has changed.

“Excellent Food and Service - Sky High Bar Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Wonderful dinner last night at Raviolis Osteria - Fried Artichoke app, Veal Parm and Lasagna - excellent food and service. Only drawback - ordered a double Maker's Mark on the rocks - $16.00 for a cocktail. Wine was reasonably priced! We would go back again and again.

“Best Italian restaurant in Murrieta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I lived in Murrieta for a year. I absolutely loved this restaurant. I normally ordered their ravioli. Quite delicious. Bread is served with real garlic. Menu is filled with various delicious choices. Wine list is impressive. Service is wonderful..although you can also order for take out. Elegant restaurant...yet not stuffy in terms of ambiance. Best Italian restaurant in Murrieta. I highly recommend it

“Best ravioli I've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

This restaurant is properly named for what's great on their menu. There are several choices of ravioli to choose from. My party and I ordered different ones so we could sample each others. They were all delicious. A real education for me on the art of homemade pasta. The service was excellent. Staff almost hovered over us. Side salads and soups were great too. We're going back real soon. Can't wait to broaden my "ravioli horizon".

“Best Italian food in Temecula Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

My husband and I visited a few years back when they first openend and thought the experience was only okay. We decided to try again, this time with friends, and we're thrilled we did. We also realized that the Executive Chef is none other than Luigi Mazzaro, the great Italian (from Naples) chef owner of Mazzaro's (now closed).

We started with a bottle of wine that the waitress recommended but unfortunately it was corked. They had no issues with returning the bottle and opening a different bottle which was fabulous. We each started with salads and then had various dishes such as the spaghetti bolognese, chicken parm, sea bass, and a Pasta special with meatball, pork ribs, and sausage. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we all agreed that we'd be back.

This is a great place, so if you're looking for authentic Italian food, in a nice setting with reasonable prices then you should definitely try Ravioli's.
