Pietro has made my dream come true for delicious food in Temecula. He hand makes all his pasta and everything is made fresh. It’s, by far, the best food in Temecula. We were introduced to this place a few weeks ago and have been there 3 times....and we have 2 reservations on the books already. Super friendly, amazing food, great dess ... read more

I was annoyed when I walked into the restaurant because my husband and I were hungry after Christmas shopping all day and the place was closed for another ten minutes. My husband insisted we wait and try the place. I didn't want to, but am glad we did. This feels like an authentic Italian restaurant. The food is all hand made- includ ... read more

First time trying tonight. Evrything was better than we expected. My wife and I have eaten almost everywhere in the area and were excited to try a new place. Fresh buffalo mozzarella was just perfect to start, followed by lobster tortellini which is hand made fresh daily. We also tried the Chilean sea bass which was absolutely fantas ... read more

We came here for a wedding rehearsal lunch. The food was extremely good and so is the wine selection. The service we received was great and everyone was quick and friendly and very accommodating to special requests. It's a very nice restaurant.

This is the best place for an authentic Italian meal. Handmade pastas, warm fresh bread, good wine recommendations and most of all the owner Chef Pietro. I have come here twice and both times delicious. Try the Lobster Ravioli, Osso Bucco on Saffron risotto or the Mussels. Located in a strip mall it's a worthwhile find.
