Amazing dinner, one of our favorite places to dine at. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding. We had bruschetta to start, the the salad with the goat cheese(forgot the name) I had the Chicken Marsala and my husband had the filet in a red wine reduction. Oh the barrel cab was off the hook. Part of the restaurant’s own wine company. Tartufo for dessert, creamy and delicious . Not too sweet at all. If you’re ever in Temecula definitely make time for Gourmet Italia.

We enjoy Pinnacle but were sad to see that our favorite hamburger is no longer on the menu, I believe it was called the Californian? It had an egg on it which we enjoy.
