Vince's has a limited menu that they have perfected. Orders are taken and the food Appears in minutes....and there is plenty of it! Unless you are a championship eater, we recommend sharing the 1/2 order of one pasta. Or be prepared to take some home. My husband had the meat lasagne and I had the spaghetti with marinara and a...

Great, informal family restaurant; one of three that started back in 1945. Limited menu; what they do is crank out miles of pasta and gallons of sauce, and do it REALLY well. Warning: portions are HUGE. Two of us split a full order of spaghetti and it was way more than we could eat. If you're only in town for... More

Homestyle Italian cooking, huge portions. The meat lasagna is to die for. Spaghetti and saucer are excellent. Great table service too.

Nothing fancy. The only Italian restaurant I know of with drive-thru service! Good food that is reasonably priced. Portion size is more than ample. Great service. Glad we tried it. Would definitely go back.

If you specialize in Italian food you expect the sauce, meatballs and bread to be amazing. The meatballs are big but very dry. The sauce is ok but there wasn't much on the sandwich. I was shocked at the price when I realized it didn't come with fries or chips. Maybe I'll try spaghetti next time.

Stopped for lunch and had the half portion of spaghetti and mead sauce along with some garlic bread. The sauce was ok, but nothing to rave about. The garlic bread was not very crisp

They sell "15,000 miles of spaghetti" every year, and I can see why -- it's delicious! Casual, popular place. There are three locations.

I like the nostalgia of the place. It is simple, good food. I went to the Ontario location as a child and this Temecula location brings back good memories.

Went to the quaint spot for italian dinner. Found so much more. The food was delicious, made like my mama did. The antipasta was very generous and the Guspachio soup was devine. Added an order of lasagna to finish. The food arrived fast, more then enough for the four of us. We ordered dinner for two, but lots to share.... More

This is a wonderful, little, local, Italian Restaurant! They were not very busy. Food was excellent. Service was great. Very clean. Needs a little more Italian ambiance!
