Excellent food - great staff. A bit disorganized with the reservation system and planning, but wait time wasn’t unbearable.
Amazing service and food. We will
We had an excellent meal. Service was a little slow at first but was very good by the end of the meal. The food was delicious. Every item we ordered was better than the last one.
Our dinner and service were impeccable. Alex and his employees treat everyone like family. It's not just s fantastic meal...It's a dining experience!
I have to give it five stars it’s delicious and the service is impeccable experience is always amazing
Very pleasant servers. Food and wine were delicious. Would definitely go again.
Great menu, incredible food, awesome service and as close to eating in Italy as you can gte.
The food was excellent.....no other Italian restaurant as good in the area and the service was impeccable. I wish I lived close enough to go there more often. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food and ambiance. A little gem in Temecula and great house wine too.
Wonderful as usual!
Excellent authentic Italian food. Servers were very knowledgable and helpful. Best Italian food since were were in Italy in 2018. We had both Lemon Veal and Veal Marsala. Both thin, tender, and delicious. Prices were average with the Temecula area, but quality was much higher. Good parking since it is in a shopping mall. Make reservations and request a table in the back.
Family visiting from out of town.
As always the service and food were outstanding
Great half-way meeting place for Coronado/Glendora family. Won’t disappoint! Make sure to get reservations. All entrees were good!
Great food and service. We were there at a very busy time so food took a little bit longer than usual, but was worth it.
Excellent food and service
Fantastic experience with great food & great service! Our waiter Guisseppi was great!!
Always enjoy our time and our meals and wine at Gourmet Italia!! The best!
Hadn't been to this restaurant in a few years and was expecting a good experience. There is a nice bar with live music which is nice. The dining area has always been a bit noisy but that's to be expected for a popular restaurant. The food was good but I was disappointed at the quality of the Caesar salad and the Bolognese sauce was excessively sweet.
The food was outstanding. The ambiance was very real "Italy". The service was very good. It is a bit expensive but worth it for a special occasion. I can't believe it has been around for 20 years and I didn't know about it!!!
It is tucked away in a strip mall but worth the drive. Best Italian in Temecula area by far!!!!
Best authentic italian food in the area...we love going...Duke
What a delicious and authentic Italian restaurant! We each enjoyed our dishes, which included Spaghetti with Vongole (clams) with white wine sauce, veal Picatta, oven baked Lasagna, and Fusilli with tenderloin steak. All were delicious and very plentiful! Our server was very nice, and table service was quick and always at the ready. We'll definitely come back whenever we come to Temecula!
In the past, this was our go to Italian restaurant, unfortunately that won’t be the case anytime soon. Even with a reservation, which was made over a week ago, they sat us in the overflow area which is also their lounge. We were told there would be music about 8 o’clock, not only was it not dinner music, but it totally ruined our entire experience. The wait staff offered to move us to quieter location in the restaurant for our dessert and coffee, to bad we had to endure the obnoxious lounge scene throughout dinner.
Food is usually great, not this time! We won’t be back for a very long time.
Gourmet Italia is an excellent restaurant in Temecula California. Located in a side street (strip mall) there is plenty of parking available. Food is excellent along with the service. Wait time can be a little long, so be patient. good selection of wines are available too.
Had to wait 30 minutes passed reservation time. I ordered the $38.00 special, 3 jumbo scallops. Instead of telling me they ran out of scallops, the waitress brings me 3 shrimp that I didn't wait for same price. Also my husbands chicken was cold. The bread and wine were both good, but meal and service were very disappointing, will never go back.
Our party arrived an hour early to enjoy some drinks @ the Poggio Lounge before being seated. When we got there the hostess immediately greater us and asked if we had reservations, which we did, looked us up and said our table was actually ready. We weren’t ready to be seated yet so we hung out @ the lounge had some delicious drinks and eventually moved on to our table. Love the ambience. The staff was great. Food was on point. Everything was amazing and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. Great night.
We have been to Gourmet Italia for 7 years at Christmas Eve. This year we were highly disappointed. A fixed menu instead of our favorite dishes. A menu that was odd dishes - many not on regular menu. Too many cream dishes. No pasta and seafood (traditional Italian) no calamari appetizer (traditional Italian) The owner is usually there making sure guests are happy. No-one seemingly running the place. No notice that Christmas was a special menu. We will be picking a new holiday restaurant for our traditional holiday meal out. Used to absolutely love this place - hate to say that this was such a disappointment for my family we will no longer be patrons
Still one of our favorites. Holiday menu a little pricy but food was excellant
Outstanding food and service. We’ll be back!!
One of the best restaurants around! We travel over 30 miles ...for a truly gourmet meal. Love their homemade meals and their delicious wine too!
I’m a frequent guest at this restaurant and was disappointed with the slow service. I had a 4 pm reservation on Friday night - well before the rush. I had a good waiter - one I’ve had before. He was obviously over worked as he was practically the only waiter in the facility. This is a popular restaurant with a loyal following. They need to properly staff the dining room so as not to ruin an otherwise enjoyable meal.
Gourmet Italia is a great place for Italian Food. We meet friends there who travel from San Diego and we come from San Gabriel Valley. We meet a few times a year and always choose Gourmet Italia!! The food and ambiance is fabulous. Always get a reservation! Service is good with a reservation but without the wait both to get in and at the table wayyyy too long on a busy night.
This is an exceptional Italian restaurant! The food is fantastic and their "Poggio Leano" wine is extraordinary, especially the Multipolciano and Charddonay. The service and ambiance makes for a beautiful eating experience.
Great meal, wonderful atmosphere, great service. We’ll be back next time we’re in Temecula!
We were VERY disappointed!
I had been there a few times, years ago and thought it would be a great place for my husband and I to take our friends for a nice dinner. We spent over $300 and everything from the service we received to the food was terrible!
Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. Best place for dinner in Temecula.
Very good. We had the veal and lasagna. Ambiance very nice.
Awesome. Don’t hesitate. Everything was delicious. Fresh and perfectly prepared and served. Appetizers right through to dessert. Can’t say enough. I am in my 60’s and have travelled my entire career entertaining clients at dinner receptions. Gourmet Italia is special.
Great experience, wonderful food as always, very upscale experience. Alex covers all the details perfectly. Our families only choice for Italian.
