Perfect place to go when wanting xlnt Italian cuisine. You know you won't be disappointed! Started with a lovely glass of chardonnay and salad. My main course choice was eggplant Parmigiano and I ate every single bit of it.😀 just be aware if you are...in a hurry this is not the right place for you. But if you enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where you can linger and savor every moment and your food and company then it is for you.More

We used to love this place. The food and service used to be amazing, but now the service just got from bad to worse! Note, we supported them regardless of sudden drop in food quality because we wanted to support local businesses due to the...pandemic, but this experience was so unpleasant, I would not recommend this place to anyone. The manager named Alex kept kept saying he would take our order literally every time he took other peoples order who CAME AFTER US. Can you believe it??? We got there first! Talk about being rude. He did this several times until my husband and I decided to call it quits. We felt like idiots standing there for 10-15 minutes waiting to be helped. This place is totally not worth it considering their food is just mediocre. We will never come here again, but on a good note this experience allowed us to find another Italian place across the street, which is an absolute hidden gem!More

Seven of us ordered assorted dishes and everyone thought the food was delicious. The chicken parmesan was especially good.

We did a girls wine tasting trip this weekend and had a great time, topped it off with an amazing dinner at Gourmet Italia, so good!!! Great service, elegant (considering we were outside b/c of Covid), they've really done a nice job setting it up...to still look nice with white table cloths keeping the ambiance of fine dining. We all loved it!More

We were so excited to visit Temecula now that the wineries are reopened. We had a great day and were so happy to end it with a fabulous meal. It did take a while for our order to be taken and the food came out...slowly but was definitely worth the wait. We had delicious meals and will come back again!More

My family asked me to join them for a dinner and it was excellent. My 11 and 12 year old grandchildren made our party of 5. I had rack of lamb, two had fresh lobster ravioli, one gnocchi, and one seafood linguini. We all had...fresh Caesar with anchovy dressing and we shared a limoncello desert. Great wine choices. So very good. Specials daily. Such attentive service even with a full restaurant. For freshly cooked quality Italian meals, you can’t go wrong. It’s not a huge restaurant so I suggest you call to let them know that you are coming.More

Real Deal Italian Fantastic Service, Food, Local wine and Desserts Happened upon this local spot after a recommendation from hotel staff. This place is a gem.

This restaurant is located in an outdoor shopping mall and didn't look like much from the outside but the inside was great and the food was delicious. Calamari fritti was enjoyable as was the huge serving of linguine pescato.

So disappointed. Experience a year ago was nice. Brought friends from Italy excited to share. Ha! Arrive one hour before reservations to spend time in the piano bar. Requested Pinot Grigio which they don’t serve in the bar. However they do in the restaurant. The...server quietly brought us a bottle from the restaurant explaining that he would get in trouble if the owner showed up. He careful wrapped the wine so it could not be identified, in case the owner showed up. What sort of tyrant is this guy? Our 6:00 reservations lead us to a table literally 2 feet away from the hostess station and door. Foreseeing the obvious issues, we pointed out that we were here one hour before our reserved time and deserved a better table. They seated us at a nice table at 6:45. Ordered and served 1hr after our order. Apparently, a common practice according to our server. Bottom line, don’t come hungry. This is not the servers issue. Clearly, management needs to evaluate processes.More

The food is okay but the wait times are a joke. Our reservation was at 6:00 pm, we were seated at 6:45. We had our food in front of us at 7:55 pm. I kindly asked the waiter if this was normal & he said...yes! Saturday nights normal to wait up to an hour past your reservation time and today being the night before a holiday and Valentines weekend same thing applies. Needless to say we won’t be back. At this point the quality of the food is irrelevant based on the wait times & the fact that this seems to be the status quo.More

I understand that pizza is gluten free. I don't know if they offer any gluten free pasta. You might want to call and ask before heading that way. Love their pumpkin ravioli especially for the holidays. Good luck!
