We eat here quite regularly and the food is good. Try the pizza, the atmosphere is very nice and you can walk the neighborhood afterwards. Currie winery tasting room is accross the street, very good wine.

If your looking for authentic Italian food in the Temecula area this is the place. In Old Town Temecula it's our choice for Italian. They have a cozy patio area for alfresco dining that is pet friendly and next to the sidewalk for people watching while you dine. The wait staff are friendly and efficient, the food is fabulous and... More

The Service: Friendly service, gave good recommendation on dishes. The Food: The Focaccia bread is freshly made. Their pizza is thin crust, wish more generous on the toppings. Salad has good amount of dressing, the grilled salmon is pretty good. The sausage sandwich is so so.... Love their pasta, the texture of the pasta tastes like homemade. The Parking: Challenging....... More

This place has authentic tasting Italian food and is located along a quiet side street in old town Temecula. Perfect setting for a date night or family dinner with very reasonable prices and hearty portions. Everything we ordered was amazing and they have the best Rosemary bread! Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed.

Three of us split the sausage app, Caesar salad and pizza - all were delicious! The pizza was thin crust and about the best I've ever had (get the fully loaded pizza). Service was a bit slow but certainly worth the wait. We will go back again. Prices are reasonable. There's also a nice selection of wines.

On a chance, I booked lunch reservations for Father's Day and boy, did we strike gold! The food was amazing. My husband had lasagna which was amazing. We started off with their steamed clams. OMG. The sauce was amazing. My penne paste was so excellent with homemade sausage. One of the owners came around to check on the food! Loved... More

So much in Old Temeculah is bar food, but not so Palumbo's Ristorante. Four friends strolled the town reading menus and rejecting most of them. Once we read Palumbo's we said the search is over! Lovely atmosphere, very tasteful, impeccable service and staff, extensive menu. We each ordered different items from the menu and they were all excellent! Can't say... More

My husband is very picky about his Italian food (he's a Jersey boy who knows his stuff). After our meal at this restaurant, he ranked at the top of his list! My Chicken Piccata Salad was absolutely delicious and very healthy, and the hub had the Eggplant Parmesan. Nice location in the heart of Old Town, with a beautiful covered... More
