It was a great first time experience, our server was as above and beyond. She noticed my mom didn’t speak English snd she spoke to her in Spanish. She was very attentive and friendly. Food was excellent! I will definitely going back snd will recommend to friends.

It is a little pricey but so worth the cost. The restaurant is decorated beautifully, the lighting is perfect which creates a very nice atmosphere for dinner. The service is phenomenal and the have a great selection of wines. The food is always served perfectly and promptly. The only suggestion I could make would be to add some nice dinner music in the background to add to the ambience otherwise everything is on par.

It was my daughter’s 20th Birthday. And she loves Italian food. I wanted to surprise her with a fancy place. The food was wonderful. The service was fantastic. The waitress was so attentive and constantly making sure everything was perfect. She even brought my daughter a delicious dessert without us mentioning anything!! Thank you for making my daughter’s birthday so special. I WILL definitely be back!

Fantastic! Our waiter was amazing. The food was absolutely delicious. If you eat here you have to try the bruschetta. I can’t recommend it enough. This will be my family’s new go to spot for Italian

The staff is very attentive and classy. The food, in my opinion, is less than authentic. Being an Italian that cooks authentic Italian food, I was left with an appetite for a better quality dish. Mind you, it was good, just not that satisfying a meal. I’m sure everyone has their good days and bad days. The Wagyu meatballs were very soft and needed a binding agent to keep them real. They fell apart too easy. Flavor was good, just lacked some real Italian spice. I would go back and try other dishes and do appreciate the good people that work there.

The food was wonderful. It was my wife’s birthday and she really enjoyed the food. I told them it was her birthday and neither our server or the host acknowledged her birthday.

First, the restaurant aesthetics were very nice. The food was just average as far as Italian food goes (Lasagna; Penne with Chicken and Chicken Parm) were all average. Bread and dipping oil were very good; there was a 5-top near us that were hecklers (and social idiots), probably drunk, so, the noise level was high just from that table.
The wait staff were all very attentive and did a very nice job. The manager came by to check on us (check the box), as he started walking away before we had concluded our reply. Would recommend if you're in the hotel or RV resort.

My husband and I had a positive dining experience at Paisano's on April 7th. This was our second time dining here. Just like our first experience, the service was friendly, efficient, and professional. The food was outstanding in taste and presentation - for our dinner I had chicken piccata and my husband had the grilled salmon. During this Covid time, we felt dining in Paisano's was safe as the tables were six feet (or more) apart, everything felt and looked clean, and the staff took all the precautions. We plan to return to Pechanga in a couple of months and we will definitely be dining again at Paisano's!

A bit overpriced for so so Italian cuisine. The service was good and staff was friendly. However, there are a number of other Italian restaurants in Temecula that offer better food and comparable service for a much better price.

The service was fast and food came out quick. The server was friendly and we were checked in a couple of times. We ordered the scampi linguini, good size shrimp but dish needed salt. Also ordered the short rib shells - pretty good but the cheesy used was a little bitter but overall we were happy. We will return to try different dishes and maybe dessert next time too.

Good experience as usual, table was ready at the time requested, staff were friendly and presentable. Food was outstanding, wine list was easy to use and price was fair. I come once a month so it would be good to see the menu change, as I tend to choose the same thing every time. Still a good night out.

My husband and I go every week for our date night and we get good service and the food is fantastic. This time the food was not good at all we were very disappointed. Don't get me wrong the food is great and I will recommend it but just this time the food was bad.
