Authentic Italian Quisien!
The Osso Bucco rose to my level. It is one of my specialties. The only thing that was missing were the finishing touches. Conac, butter and gremolata.

Fabulous!!!
Why do these great restaurants end up in strip malls? Really good and authentic Italian food and superb service. Only drawback is the ambiance since it is in a strip mall. Owner is friendly and accommodating.

Authentic Italian sooo delicious
The pasta is so fresh owner imports ingredients (even the flour) from Italy. The pappardelle ai funghi was to die for. Don't miss this spot or be deterred by the location. Service is excellent too.

Food was delicious and authentic. The burrata melted in your mouth. The risotto was so creamy. The meatballs yummy and not dry. The gnocchi was perfect. Andre, our server, was attentive and friendly.Will definitely go back again when we come to Temecula for our monthly wine club pick-up.
