We visited on a Wednesday night that was unusually crowded and understaffed. But even under these circumstances, we had outstanding service! Edy, the owner, was our server and she was working right beside her crew. I found that to be an extremely great quality in a business owner. My guest and I both ordered the Salmon Picatta Florentine. It had... More

Palumbo’s is a quaint Italian restaurant on a side street off the main tourist street (Front St.) with both inside and patio seating. One of the best features of the restaurant is it’s off the noisy main drag and has great food! Avoid weekends in Old Town not because of the volume of tourists but because “Old Town” is a... More

Palumbo's looked like it had potential. But, in a nutshell, it was bland, over priced, and even though there were only a few tables (another telltale sign) the service was SLOW. The only plus I can give this place is that the wait staff was nice.

We were treated to dinner by my new son-in-laws parents a few days before the wedding. This was a great choice because we could get a nice table for eight of us and hear each other and enjoy really nice Italian food. The carbonara was great, as was the baked penne. Salads were also very good. Wine was reasonable and... More

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.
