The service was excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating. The food was off the charts. The antipasti was exceptional and abundant. Great variety and flavors. The swordfish was moist and succulent and seemed very fresh even though it had to have been frozen. The veal limone was fabulous, well prepared, very tasty. Excellent wine to complement the flavors. What set... More

Gourmet Italia is by far one of the best Italian restaurants we have ever been to. It's so cozy, friendly wait staff and above all delicious Italian fare! You will not be sorry to dine here:)

The service was good. The taste of our food was good. However, the sauce on my wife's ravioli was thick and almost paste like, and some of the mussels in my seafood special were not cleaned properly. They still had their beards with their attached muscle. Our server offered to try to get things fixed, but we did not have... More

This restaurant has a reputation for excessive overbooking and our party of six experienced a reservation wait time over an hour. When we enquired about the reservation we were told it could be another hour or so wait. Wait staff was gracious, Owner was pompous and rude.

One thing I love about Gourmet Italia is that they are very consistent. You always know you're going to eat fantastic food, but it's going to take awhile (if you go on a Friday or Saturday evening, count on being there for at least two hours). I have had the Chicken Limone (Piccata) and the Fusilli Calabrese numerous times, and... More

What a find in Temecula!! Beautiful, true Italian setting....I definitely suggest a reservation, as the bar area is quite small. Huge candles throughout the restaurant add to the romantic ambiance. Homemade pasta...Highly recommend the Papardelle with mushrooms and scallops and the Lasagna. Great, attentive service!

We went to this seemingly popular restaurant expecting good Italian food. It was not good. Considering how expensive it is, I'd say this restaurant is not worth going to. My daughter ordered soup which was not worth eating. They charged us for it anyway.

We had dinner at this restaurant last week. We were seated immediately, but within minutes of our arrival all tables were full. Food was delicious - I had the risotto which was prepared perfectly - creamy & a little al dente. The Lemon Chicken was delicious. Great choice for dinner - will come back next time we are in Temecula.
