The little hole-in-the-wall trattoria came as a most pleasant surprise. We were taken there by some friends that wanted to surprise us or, maybe, me, since I am Sicilian myself. I have had the privilege of meeting the principals involved in this operation. The restaurant is owned and operated by this beautiful Sicilian family. The father and owner, Alessandro, is... More

My husband and I knew we wanted some authentic Italian meal after a day of winery tours, and this restaurant was recommended. The food was good, but nothing "WOW" like I was expecting. Our meal also took 40 minutes to arrive after ordering which I thought was a little excessive, especially when our meals seemed somewhat "simple."

I took my sister-in-law and her husband here for the 25th. The food was outstanding. The selection of wine was superb. The overall experience was second to none in the Temecula Valley. I recommend this place highly.

Dinner on a weekday and the restaurant was full - this was a good sign to begin with. Our server was very attentive. We had two of the evening's specials and both were very good. The menu has lots of choices and you can spend a little or a lot. The wine menu is good but can get pricey. If... More

I would never have found this fabulous restaurant if it wasn't for all the great reviews! I usually scope a place out if I am unfamiliar and the reviews speak for itself. Out of the way, but so worth it. Our server, Cassey, was the best... So genuine, answered all of our questions and was just so knowledgeable about the... More

This place is a Gem! The owners are Italian and it is a family owned business. They have farms here in California and in Italy that they actually grow most of the produce used in their dishes. Literally they grow their own herbs, olives, source their own cheese and it really shows in the quality of ingredients. I am a... More

Food genuine and delicious, pricing is very acceptable; service prompt and courteous. Venue could be bigger, more spacious, more relaxing.

A nice little boutique Italian spot. Great food, excellent service - prices were reasonable and the food is superb. I had the Fusilli al Filetto and my wife had the Rigatoni alla Norma. Both dishes were super tasty. I usually order something with sausage but I didn't see that on the menu. A bit odd but there are definitely other... More

The spaghetti carbonara is great! Actually everything we've tried here is excellent. And the service is first rate. Highly recommend you eat here.

In Valentine's Day we had a set menu and loved it. My girlfriend was proposed to here. We have come for over a decade and never been disappointed. Food and service great. Quaint
