We had a blast! Mama fed us, mama poured our drinks, mama joined in our conversations - it was a delightful few hours. Our friends and us all enjoyed different meals and everything was spectacular. We have a new sheriff in town LOL! Make this place a MUST when visiting Hemet

Always enjoy the family atmosphere of this restaurant that has been in the valley for decades. Food is very good. Price average. Closed on Mondays during lunch. Will definitely recommend and return to this wonderful family-owned restaurant.

Absolutely incredible...The food here is high class authentic home cooked Italian made with love. That's the only way it tastes this way. We love coming here and visiting with the family is a treat as well it reminds us of ours :) The inside takes you away, it's a complete experience.

Everything is from scratch. The fettuccine ala gina and the Jerusalem chicken are wonderful. So is the pizza! Prices comparable to other Italian dinner houses

We went here for Valentine's Day dinner. It was very busy, but the service and food were great. Started with calamari, cook perfectly with lots of garlic. Then had the pasta with clams and the veal with crab and asparagus. Both delicious. Then finished off with a huge slice of decadent chocolate cake. It was a perfect Valentine dinner.

Not what I expected - and yet so much more. I can't say that I was really looking for too much when I ventured into the restaurant; and, getting initially greeted by the owner and having her granddaughter serve our table was the highlight of the night. They were delightful. It was like venturing back to my grandmother from Italy's... More

Awesome food. Authentic Italian! The house-made raviolis are incredible! Also try the manicotti! Delish!
