We stumbled upon this place about 7pm on our way thru town, while avoiding interstate accident traffic, and are glad we did. The... owner and his staff were very friendly and the food was delicious! It was by far the best Italian meal that my family has had,probably ever. The seafood pasta special had more seafood than you would normally get anywhere, and all of our meals were veryfresh and flavorful. Read more

Everything was delicious frim beginning to end. The make the best from scratch Cesar Salad, you may need to comfirm if they're... serving it when making your reservation. My husband over all favorite besides his moms Sicilian dishes is Capellini alla Checca.I enjoyed Lasagna with a delicious meat sauce, which my husband was also loving. Lol Ending with a Vegan Pistachio Sorbet. Niceoption to have. You never know which guest my have dairy allergies. They offer many option on their menu to choose from ????Super service, friendly atmosphere with a choice of the more traditional family as well as intimate seating areas.

An Italian experience with delicious memorable food and service that takes way too long to get served. We found this place on... Yelp for a new Italian experiences. The restaurant is next to the 88 ranch Asian market. Great environment inside with Italiandecor and even had live jazz music going. One word of warning they seem very short staffed cause it took 20 minutes to place anorder and tracking down any server once we started dinner was very difficult. We started with wine (a fantastic collection!)that was very tasty. The caprese was very old school Italian with olive oil and it was great too. The entrees of pasta weremouth watering and the portions are great. We even had a bit of spumoni desert to finish. The prices a bit high across the boardon the food and the service was a bit lackluster. But everything else was great! Maybe it was just a bad night for them or shortstaffed. Either way we’re coming back again! Read more

I just had lunch here about an hour ago with my mom and this place (at least for me) really took me back to when I used to live... in Italy in my younger years... The atmosphere, the people, and how the employees interact with each other is LIKE NO OTHERPLACE that I've been to in terms of dining out. The servers and the owner of the place are VERY INTERACTIVE and EXPRESSIVE onhow they carry themselves!!! The hostess was AMAZING and very DELIGHTFUL to be around, the owner was funny, charismatic and alsoVERY ENTERTAINING!!! Andres our waiter was very respectful and also very welcomimg and had the utmost customer service that isamazing!!! The food was DELICIOUS (we had the seafood pasta, with lasagna, and spaghetti with salmon). For a first time visit itwas definitely A HOME RUN FOR REAL!!!! Excellent job G.I. and keep up the FANTASTIC WORK to bring more people so they can have afantastic experience! Read more

I hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner in their large, private room. It was the perfect size (we had a party of almost 30) and had... a beautiful chandelier. It was great that we could bring in our own decorations to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Karamia wasvery helpful through each step and answered all the questions that I threw at her. She and Kevin (server) were attentive to ourneeds throughout the evening and made everything easy. Food and wine were delicious! Read more

Was able to confirm a reservation that I made weeks ahead of time to come to this place. I decided after 33 years I wanted to... try something different on our anniversary. And what I can say is that my wife and myself enjoyed our time at this restaurant.The time we got there was 11:01 and from that point on I thought I was in Italy. Pass through it on a tour did I have a chanceto stop in it. But it was remarkable extremely comfortable and intimate and family-oriented. The food was outstanding theirexperience that Jennifer showed us for the very get-go the wine list the pairings what food to eat what food that parents wouldgo with the great wines that were being served is it outstanding tribute to her ability as a customer is a waitress conciergeprobably part-time manager to handle everything that was given to her trying to take our orders and make sure that we wereextremely happy. Since we have been married for 33 years and this was our anniversary she made it special she made it importantand she made it all about us. Although there were other people in the restaurant she did stay focused and came back to usconstantly to check and see how we're doing and how the food taste I cannot say for my wife but I can say for myself that it wasa great experience and thank you Tony V (who happens to be an author of a great book of his life story I would recommend it thatBook on Amazon) also for letting me know this restaurant does exist. Thank you again Jennifer for making this 33rd anniversaryvery memorable one and I can't wait to the rest of my family has a chance to be waited on and be served by this great restaurantof Temecula thank you again sincerely Gregory Givens Staff Sergeant United States Marine Corps Retired Read more
