Six of us (3 couples) ate here mid-week while visiting Temecula. All six agreed - one of the best Italian restaurants ever. Superb food, great service - nothing else needs to be said - Spectacular!

Drove an hour to have what I think is the best Italian food in the area. My wife and I are both Italian and coincidentally have been to Alex's home town of Piazza Armerina in Sicily. We had a party of ten and every dish ordered was perfect. Alex and his staff will treat you like family.

I dined at Gourmet Italia with 2 other friends while visiting for a long weekend. We each enjoyed our meals so much we still can't stop talking about it! Aside from the wonderful food, the owner and staff were unbelievable. They made us feel so welcome, like we were old friends.

We arrived 30 minutes earlier than our reservation time and got a table for four in front of the bar. It was fine because there were not many people at that time but later when it got packed it became very tight because there were couple of layers of people standing at the bar. Great food and excellent wine. Vry... More

My brother had been telling me about this place, so for my Birthday we went there. There was a line out the door, which turned out to be one party. Once they were seated we were lucky to get a seat at the bar. This place is popular and deserves to be. After a leisurely glass of wine we were... More

We found this great place two years ago and have never been disappointed! Pasta, pizza, service, excellent. The owner, Alex, is so welcoming and friendly. Definitely a place to try.

Fantastic food and outstanding customer service. Went there for a nice family dinner. We were treated like we were friends and very appreciated. The pasta and sauces were very good, and the menu had a nice selection. We will go back soon

We dined on a week night and it wasn't very busy so the service was very good. As you would expect they had a extensive wine selection from the area. Food is typical Italian fare - I had the Chicken Parma and it was one of the best I have ever eaten, so crispy on the outside and juicy inside... More
