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.

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

Maria's ravioli is wonderful! Both her cheese and meat is excellent! And her sauces are truly inspiring. Her home made garlic grilled bread is to die for....a perfect a compliment to her salads. I love her garlic Calamiri, which is a meal in itself. One of my favorites is her Chicken Jerusalem, as I love mushrooms. Wonderful food, well worth... More

Ignore the bright lights and the faded decor, the food is fantastic! We had the Chicken Jeruselam (never heard of it before) and it was out of this world. And on Friday and Saturday nights they have a wonderful crooner, singing music from a bygone era. A fantastic evening. Too bad they're only open until 9pm...but that's Hemet!

From the outside, we thought this would be just an OK place. But when we walked in, it was so PRETTY and well-appointed! The menu is pages long, I don't know how Maria does it! I had a veal selection and it was excellent. We are going to go back again. I even asked Maria if she offers classes in... More

This is a long standing family restaurant with authentic Italian dishes in which the whole family seems to be involved. I would have rated them much higher if it weren't for the all solid hard surface interior, tile floors, no sound absorbing material anywhere. Yes, it is nice and clean looking, but you can hear everyone's conversation, clattering dishes and... More
