Wonderful location in Old Town, cozy setting. We made reservations on a Friday night, got a seat right away. There was a 35 min. wait for walk ins. Very attentive service. Enjoyed the local wine selection. Nice home grown fresh veggies (tomatoes for the salad, pumpkin in the pie).

Dinner was very nice - marked down because the didn't offer fresh parmesan with the pasta dishes and the mozzarella was "skimpy" on the Caprese. Otherwise, everything was yummy!

The restaurant is in Old Town Temecula. There was 5 of us and we all liked our dinner very much. We had the Eggplant Parmigiana, Chicken Parmigiana, Baked Ziti and Antipasta salad. The service was very good too.

After dinner we walked around Old Town which we heard is a fun place on the weekends.

My wife had the Chicken Marsala, with the option of marsala sauce on the pasta. Magnifique! They did not cook down the marsala, which is what we like, a real flavor treat. I had the lasagna, which was good and plentiful. Our server, Katie, really made the evening special. She and the other help came by many times to make sure everything was good. We had an engaging conversation, for which we were in the mood. It being our 40th wedding anniversary, they gave us a free desert. For their home-made mud pie they were out of the chocolate mocha ice cream, so they gave us two scoops of butter pecan and one of vanilla. Delicious! We definitely recommend the restaurant, and ask for Katie!

We thankfully made a reservation over the phone for a Saturday night at 7pm. We were promptly seated over the people without. You can see the owners behind the counter in the kitchen carefully preparing the food. Everything was delicious! A hearty house salad, fabulous dressings, fantastic bread and the lasagna was just like my Grandmother use to make! mmmm.... The whole staff was happy, helpful and obviously working together. You will not be disappointed.
