“The best food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Always a treat. The food is fresh, homemade and magnificent. Excellent service and beautiful atmosphere. The owners are welcoming, friendly and make you feel like you are in their dining room. We are lucky to have Francesca's in Temecula.

“Good Pasta... But overpriced”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I had the capellini and marinara. Husband had eggplant parmesan. Both dishes were very good. We were disappointed in the bread. An Italian restaurant should serve Italian bread. It wasn't. For the price I think a small salad would be nice. $13.99 for a bowl of spaghetti and sauce is overpriced in my book so a salad to accompany it would have been acceptable. No offer to refill the breadbasket.
Waitress was very friendly and prompt. The ice water tasted like well water.

“Who would have thought.....”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Friday night on the way home looking for a place to wait till the traffic dies down. We stumbled on to this place, how refreshing an Italian dining experience ran by Italians. It appears to be family ran. No one lingering, everyone happy, smiling & appearing to have a goal in mind.....keep the guest happy. Our waiter was Louigie (I hope it is spelt right) told us the specials and his preferences.Listen to him, it was great. I had the sword fish with capers, my husband had the Manicotti and the others in our party had Scallops. The panna cotta was awesome.
From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave it is apparent the pride and effort put in. As a hotel owner I know what effort goes into keeping people happy, and have a tendency to pick places apart....Great job hats off to you, we will be back when in the area.

“A Wonderful Find”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was a great find. Kind of tucked away in a mall.
We went there just on spec. The service was excellent as was the food. We both had the recommendation of the waiter which was salmon. Cooked to perfection and accompanied by pasta (divine) and vegetables. For my desert, I had the Napoleon which was layers of pastry, cream and creme anglaise - mmmmm and my husband had the homemade tiramisu which he loved.
We were brought a little glass of limoncello too which was a treat. The meal ended with coffee.
It was expensive but we certainly will be returning. It's a 'treat' kind of a place.
