We were in Temecula for one night and were looking for a place to eat. I checked Trip Advisor, as I always do, and found Francesca's. Truly, I couldn't have done better. Francesca herself is a delight. I spilled water all over the table and my husband. She rushed in, moved our drinks to another table, got us situated and was beyond gracious about it. We started talking with her and discovered that she was raised outside of Milan, Italy and much of the food in her restaurant is cooked in the Milanese style. Upon request, she shared her secret to cooking perfect risotto.
Now, on to the food. I had risotto with parmesan and it truly was the best I have ever eaten-I try it everywhere. The Caprese salad was excellent. My husband had the special and seriously thought about ordering a second one but was too full. The portions are generous. My husband always drinks coffee after his meal and asked our waiter for a Milanese suggestion. He mentioned it to Francesca and she appeared with a fabulous coffee made with ice cream. Please, do yourself a favor and check out this place.
