Mom ordered lamb. When she politely mentioned it was a little overcooked. The owner took it to the kitchen and had the staff taste it. Brought it back and said everyone else thinks its fine so you have to eat it. Yelled at my mom and then tried to charge us for food we never ordered. Sorry but why do... More

of all places to have a fine dining establishment like Dattilo Ristorante, in Hemet? This is a really cool place to have lunch but be prepared to get stuffed with great food and one of the best ladies who I've ever ran into running a ristorante. I had the meatball sandwich, my son had the margarita pizza and my wife... More

The food was okay, presentation was tired, atmosphere was old Italian with the singer/entertainment the best part of the evening. The food appears not to have changed for many years. Husband had veal marsala. He says overpriced as the veal was a small piece with lots of pasta. Nothing else with the entree. My meal was swordfish in a rose... More

The atmosphere is wonderful and when they have live singing, it's even more enjoyable. The staff is wonderful and make us feel like family. But the very best part is the FOOD! I have lived coast to coast and have never been to a better Italian restaurant.

From the White Rolls Royce & Italian Columned front, to the Frescoes on the walls, & Beautiful Fountain under a center, raised, ceiling with stained glass panels,.... This is Truly an Elegant Italian Restaurant. The Datillo family built this restaurant & it has been in the family for years. Maria Datillo and her husband prepare all of the delicious food... More

Full Italian motif inside. It was good, but I expected more from the rave reviews here. Good live singer. Food was good+, but not exceptional. Mushroom appetizer was great. Service very good. House wine good. Parking could be a problem during busy periods. A top tier Hemet eatery.

I have been going to Datillo's for many years and have had them provide excellent catering service on several occasions. Birthday party with Joe singing to my wife! Food is fresh, cooked and supervised fresh by Maria. Hard working Matriarch of the family. Has been there when many restaurants have come and go! My favorite is the lasagna, and fresh... More

I don't think the owners know that the daughter/server and her boyfriend have a habit of online attacks against long time customers. I would hope that they would not be ok with that. The original family members probably don't have a clue what their obnoxious daughter is doing online. I have spent many hundreds of dollars in meals from this... More
