Each one is different and has different food. Gourmet Italia is the #1 when it comes to style and atmosphere. Great Italian food that I have found. But you have to make a reservation or you can’t get in, but that’s what happens when you’re food is delicious 😋

They have some chairs that are comfortable, but we didn't sit there. My husband can barely walk due to stroke, and they put us in the very back of the Restaurant. Very inconsiderate. Especially since when I made the reservation, I said that we have a disabled person. Not to mention the handicap parking is far and not conducive to people with disabilities. We have eaten here in the past and the service and the food was much better.

The temp on your dining room thermometer was 82 degrees but hostess said the owner was out of town and there was nothing that can be done. Our waiter and busboy were very nice but front of house hostess could care leas.

The main courses were all good but the fried calamari was very greasy and tiny pieces of calamari. Very disappointed. No bread is served with your pasta and they now charge $5 for a basket of bread.

The bread was hard and dry (and you have to pay for it). The lasagna was delicious as was the fried mozzarella appetizer. The waitstaff was attentive. It was my first visit and based on the other reviews, I expected way more. I will not be back.

A gorgeous restaurant and delish food, The smoked salmon pasta dish was the best we have ever had. I am dreaming of it. Great Cab wine too. Must try the cheese board- the hot jellies are to die for -perfect with an interesting assortment of cheeses incl a fab black lemon cheese.

Driving there, we read recent negative reviews which concerned us. Our experience however, was much different. We were immediately greeted by a delightful hostess and shown to a nice table. Within seconds, a very capable and engaged server named Karolina was at our side. We ordered two rounds of old fashions and a real treat, Sazerak cocktails, all expertly made. We split the Gourmet Italia salad, she had a killer sea bass and my chicken Marsala was excellent. The bread and olive teppenad should not be missed. We even liked the house Malbec, a repeat from our prior visit. The house provided two beautiful little cannolis, a real nice touch and real good as well. Five stars again on this visit. Gourmet Italia is still our top choice for a real nice dinner out. Thanks Karolina and staff! We will be back when visiting Temecula.

We were pleasantly surprised when we heard a classical music played by a young lad. At our request he beautifully played music by a famous Polish composer, Chopin. This made my wife's birthday dinner a real feast, not only for our palate, but our senses as well. Next time we'll come to Temecula we going to make reservations for 5:00 PM to combine good food with an excellent concert by that fellow.

Our reservation was early and we were completely caught off guard that there were NO veal dishes to be had. So we ordered, two of our party of four were served and the other two waited to be served...Very ordinary chicken dishes, one manicotti was dry...The magic that we remembered was lost..Big party adjoining us was loud...May be a long time before returning.

Once we were seated it took a while for our server to get to us, but we were able to place our drink and appetizers order. There was a large gathering in the adjacent room That was getting to be a bit loud, but we were still enjoying ourselves. After the appetizers arrived, we placed our order for dinner. Our salad arrived within a decent amount of time, however the wait for our entrées was extremely long. In the space of our wait, the large group became very vocal, some people even started singing, and a group of four was seated near us, where two of their party were clearly intoxicated As we continued to wait. The table of four got louder and the whole atmosphere became very unpleasant. The singing continued with the large group in the other room, our waters were not filled, and the wait for the entrées was way too long. Once our food arrived, it was very good, but honestly the atmosphere had degraded so badly at that point we were not enjoying ourselves. In our minds, it’s up to the restaurant to maintain a sense of dignity in the dining areas, so that all guests can enjoy themselves. When one group is particularly loud, I don’t think it is inappropriate for the waiters staff or manager to ask them to quiet down If we return to this restaurant, we will absolutely be more particular about where we are seated, and we will speak up when things get out of hand. It’s too bad that such a nice evening was ruined.

You can never go wrong picking their Chicken Masala. Their salads are refreshing and the Wine is good! (Something you can’t always count on grown in the area) Our favorite restaurant now in Temecula is this gem.

After having them check several times, one meal was COLD, the bread never arrived, and we were charged for wine we didn't order. We were threatened that the police were called when we asked to speak to the manager (who stopped in to find out what the issue was, then we never saw her again). We've dined several times in the past with great service and food. This time was horrific; so disappointing since it was also a special occasion - a friends reunion. All around, an abysmal end to a great day.

The location made it hard to have an enjoyable dinner because there were numerous distractions. The food was ok; however, since the vibe was off, it impacted the whole experience.
