Authentic Italian. Any caprese will disappoint after eating this one. Fresh from the garden heirlooms, basil, and Italian buffalo mozzarella. The main courses are all exceptional. You will love the sauce.

Tried for the first time since
Tried for the first time since change in ownership and name. Used to be one of the two Ravioli's locations which are now closed. We were pleased with the experience--both our dishes were very good and the entire staff was pleasant, very attentive and accommodating. We will definitely return even though it's a bit of a drive for us (there just aren't enough good independent restaurants in this inland area--but this is one worth trying).

Nonno's a yes-yes!
What a great time we had on Mon 4/29 for my Sweetheart's b-day! We had a fantastic meal and excellent service from William & Nestor. The calamari app. was light & flavorful, and the Buffalo Mozzarella had such a unique taste to it! The Ravioli w/ Portobella mushroom sauce was soooo good!! Try this place, you'll love it too...

My daughter wanted to treat me for Mother's day on Saturday night...she drove down from Yucca Valley...after searching on YELP for a special place to take me. And to our delight it was special. Thank you for making it so.

Mangiare e Divertirsi
Great experience, as usual, and we especially enjoyed the Sirloin Raviolis with the white mushroom sauce.

A great place to eat Italian food
Great food and prices with friendly service, will go back soon.

Overall a wonderful visit!
Our waitress Julie really helped make the evening! A great gal. Everything we had tasted very fresh and flavorful. Dishes were really good. Very clean and great specials during the week!!

Our great 49th anniversay dinner.
Started out with an antipasto appetizer (shared), shared a tomato, cucumber and mozzarella cheese salad. Both were scrumptious. We both had special of the day. My husband had the 14 oz. rib eye special (done to perfection) with veggies. I had the ravioli stuffed with Portobello mushrooms with a light cream sauce and a veggie mixture and braised port over them. They were delicious. We also had a bottle of Robert Renzoni Sangiovese mixture wine. We didn't have room for dessert but I'm sure it would have been wonderful.

Nonno's could become your favorite
Nonno's is our favorite for every mood we're in. It can be a quiet dinner with wonderful mood music on weekends or a good place to celebrate birthdays and special days. The food is very tasty and generous, and very well priced. ALL the personnel is friendly, and knowledgeable about their food servings. If we consider Nonno's our favorite...it must be perfect!
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
So glad to have this restaurant in our city. The food is absolutely top-notch as are Nonno's personnel. Not one little complaint!!
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner. Great server. Great music. I came here in a group of 11 people including 2 kids and a baby. The server was extremely nice for the size and chaos level of our group. The kids were entertained and the adults were still able to have a great meal. Everyone had something different to eat and everyone like their choices! We were all from out of town so I picked this from the open table reviews and it led me to a great find!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Authentic Italian Food
Luigi is from Italy and it is absolutely noticeable in the way he cooks. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and the bartender, Scott, makes the best margarita on the planet.
This restaurant is tucked away next to Richie's diner on Murrieta Hot Springs and Hancock, so it is never super busy. If it was in a better location, I doubt they'd ever have an open seat.

Local Italian Gem
This ristorante could easily be overlooked, due to its location. But, we're pleased that we stopped in for dinner. Our server Julie was friendly, helpful, attentive, and knowledgeable about the food. And, the food was wonderful. We shared a Caprese salad and Carpaccio appetizers; both were fantastic. Not a morsel left on either plate. Warm bread from the oven complemented both perfectly. My wife had shrimp and pasta and loved it. I felt like something spicy, so I asked Julie what they had. She constructed a custom dish with spicy Italian sausage, meat ravioli, and vegetables in a red sauce. It had just the right amount of heat, and i sopped up every drop of sauce with the second order of bread from the oven. My advice: eat here!

Nonno's is the bomb
We celebrated a birthday with dinner at Nono's and everything was perfect! Best food I have had in the Temecula / Murrieta area!! 5 stars does not seem like enough!!!
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have dined here 3 times and absolutely love this place. The service is great, the atmosphere intimate, and the food wonderful. I intend to return often for special occasions. Absolutely recommended!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The sax player was a little to loud for the bar area. Good music but to loud. Other than that great place to eat.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I "found" Nonno's through Dealpalooza, if I recall, and what a great surprise it was. The service is always very good, timely without being overbearing. The food is excellent --- my wife raves about the cioppino. I have tried several different dishes there, including lasagna and chicken parmigiana -- both excellent. However, on my last visit I tried a dish called Tagliatelle Mare e Monti, which has shrimp, scallops, mushrooms and shallots in a sherry creme sauce --- I think it might be my new favorite. And if you have room for dessert, the cannoli is highly recommended (even if you don't have room for dessert....get it!!). All in all, a great dining experience and one I truly think you will enjoy.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good local find
While not the fanciest place in town, the atmosphere is nice, the service provided by William was excellent and the food is terrific. While the menu offerred chicken parmigiana I really wanted veal and asked server if that was possible. His first response was no, but then, on his own, checked with the Chef who obliged and made an excellent veal parmagiana for me. Enjoyed the dinner and the local atmosphere.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic. You could tell it was the Chef's own talents bringing unique tastes to the meal. I can't say enough about the food. It was my first time there and it won't be my last! I'm telling everyone about this restaurant. Can't wait to try other things on the menu.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service and food was outstandin
The service and food was outstanding ! I would recommend Nonno's !
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Deleccious food and friendly staff. The manager/owner came around to our table a few times, to make sure everything was correct and we were enjoying ourselves. The only reason I rated the noise level as I did, there is a live saxophonist on the weekend. He is quite good but can be a bit loud.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent experient at Nonno's
Love this relatively new restaurant in our area. Great food and service all of the time.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time experience
After a long day of wine tasting, this place made the day complete. The atmosphere was so mellow and relaxing. The saxophone player they had Friday night gave the place such a romantic feel. The service was great at well. Waiter was super friendly and attentive and our glasses were always full. The food was delicious but not as amazing and satisfying as the tiramisu I had for dessert. If I went back I think I would order a cocktail, a slice of tiramisu and just sit back to enjoy a relaxing evening.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best experience ever! The food is incredible and the staff is top notch, the cocktails are out of this world, we tried the homemade pasta and ravioli's absolutely love it. This is by far the best Italian restaurant in the valley.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
So glad we discovered this
So glad we discovered this hidden gem! Will most definitely be on our must do list every time we visit Temecula.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to take your date
from the chilled salad forks to the extensive wine list Nonno's has amazing food, friendly wait staff and the mozzarella Caprese is amazing! I recommend this restaurant to any one seeking an Italian fine dining expedience.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service
I was pleasantly surprised that a restaurant in a strip mall would be so nice and comfortable. I wanted the swordfish but they were sold out sobi had the steak which was very good and hot. We were a little weirded out by the servers ear lobes where he clearly had Gage's (spacers) in his ears while not at work and that left behind holes in his ears, strange for a nice restaurant. His service was very good though. I will definitely return.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very much so a neighborhood gem. The best Italian food around. Had a "special" which I hope they put on the regular menu - excellent food and service.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Kept Secret in Murrieta
We used our Deal Palooza to Nonno's and found a treasure.. The food was very good, the service was exceptional and we will be back . This find in a strip mall needs to be discovered, so I am letting the word out.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Linguine Toscana - yum
My husband and I took another couple to dinner to celebrate a birthday. The fried calamari appetizer was great -- rather than the small strips you usually see, they slice the calamari a little wider and the result was delicious. We also had some kind of fried artichoke appetizer that was yummy.
For entrees we had linguine toscana, mare di monti, gnocchi, and veal marsala. All were great. The pasta is presented well -- the veal marsala was served with potatoes rather than pasta and wasn't quite as good as the pasta dishes. Limited wine list but what they have is great. We had creme brulee and cheesecake for dessert -- really good.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We originally visited Nonno's because it was close to a theatre and we didn't know the area. We had a great meal! We went back with friends this time and the food was delicious, the wine was great, and the prices were reasonable. They even have some great discounts during the week that we may check out in the future. Lovely inside with attentive service, this is a keeper.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice, but a little loud
Very nice, but a little loud inside if you have any hearing issues. Outside seating very pleasant. Wonderful food & service.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice restaurant!
Service was outstanding. Very attentive and knew the menu very well.
My wife is gluten free. There was GF pasta available and the Chef was willing to make several entrées GF. WOW!
Food was very good. Sauces were excellent. Pizza was great. Calamari was cooked to perfection.
It was one of our daughters birthday. The sax player came over and played happy birthday. What a great touch.
What a great overall experience. Will definitely be back.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nono's is a beautiful restaurant tucked away in Murrieta. Romantic lighting, live saxophone and best of all Sophia Loren movies silently playing in the background... Such beautiful nostalgia - and then the food arrives - Perfetto - Magnifico! Transports me back to Italian villages with homemade pastas, sauces, cheeses, wines and all delivered with impeccable service. This is a place you could propose! I am in love with Nonnos
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will return to Nonno;s
A pleasant dining experience on an uncrowded SA evening. Food excellence exceed only by the quality of the wait-staff,
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighborhood place
Wonderful food and service with a smile from the time we walked in the door to the time we walked out.
Our water glasses were kept full. We were checked on but not hovered over.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nonno's is always a pleasurable dining spot. Great service, great food, and really nice ambience. The prices are quite reasonable, with most entrees under $20. A+!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere is very nice and the staff was pleasantly engaging. The service was excellent and the servers were always checking the table and filling glasses, etc. The food experience was excellent and was an unexpected pleasure with unique and creative specials off menu and a menu of full range of talian gastronomic experiences.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dine right here@ Nonno's Ristorante
Let me tell you, the service was a ten plus, the environment another ten plus, the attention from the staff was a ten plus and the food was the best.
It was the best restaurant for our anniversary. Different from the normal and the same Italian restaurants in the IE. BTW, we aren't into Italian food, after traveling a lot to Italy. This is a great place and would recommend this place to all the beautiful people who are ready to live.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Having just gotten back from Italy last month we were hungry for true Italian cuisine. We found Nono's to be the next best thing to being there ! Chef Luigi and waiter William gave us amazing service and the food, wine and dessert made our birthday celebration a special one. We found a gem in Nono's and highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian food. We will be back again and again !
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attentive service and great food.
This place had it all. An extensive menu and great service. Attentive without feeling that they were overbearing.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We truly enjoyed our dinner. We had a party of 5 and we received great service. The food was absolutely delicious and we can't wIt to return to the area again for dinner!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM

Meeting an old flame
Quiet enough for conversation but soft sax playing in the background.
Salmon ravioli -Gnuchi con Pollo excellent.
Staff was professional yet easy going and fun.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to Nonno's looking to find a replacement for one of our favorite local Italian restaurants and we were not disappointed. The service was attentive and sincere, the atmosphere was delightful with a single musician playing softly in the background. My daughter had steak ravioli which was done perfectly, my wife had lasagna that was wonderful, and I had the lobster ravioli that was delicious! Moderately priced, I am already recommending Nonno's to friends.
