My wife and I came her for a peaceful romantic dinner, for Cinco De Mayo. LOL. Mexican restaurants were packed so we chose her Nationality. Food was delicious!!! Wife said there has to be a grandma in the back slaving over a hot stove all day.It was the flavor and ambiance that took her back to her grandparents house when... More

My husband and I ate here last year while visiting a relative. We thought the food was good-not great and the service was slow and unattentive. Having few choices in the area aside from Mexican food we decided to give them another chance last night. We were met at the door at 7:30 by an employee who told us that... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of time in February. Both times we were very satisfied with the service and entrees. We tried the lemon souffle for dessert the first time and it was terrific! My wife found the fish a bit overdone, but tasty. I found the salads and pasta dishes wonderful. If there was something lacking,... More

Years ago (too many to name) my wife and I used to go to a restaurant in Westwood call Di Stefano's Ristorante for its Chicken Suprema. Di Stefano's closed years ago, but the fond memories of this wonderful dish are cherished. We just happened to be reminiscing about it while in Temecula and decided to look online at all the...

My wife and I have been to Francesca's many times and it never fails to exceed our expectations. For those with discriminating palettes expecting outstanding Italian cuisine, this is a must visit. The atmosphere is dinner casual but the food is fine dining. There are nightly specials which I recommend highly. Coupled with an intriguing wine list, expect a thoroughly... More

The risotto was just excellent! This was a solid 5-star. The eggplant parmesian was also tasty and the quality was just great. It comes with spaghetti which was also the best. The eggplant portion was rather small, and I wished this tobe a little larger.

I like this place, staff is always great. Place was packed as you would think, on New Years Eve. We had reservations so we got right in. We had a great dinner with wine. They do a great job at fixing all their meals. The lasagna was a bit over cooked, but all the other meals were perfect. I know... More

We love this place. The owner himself always comes to the table to speak with you and see if your experience was a good one. They always give us free shot of Limoncello after our meal. Very friendly service and owner is from Italy.

Loved this place! Our server (owner?) enthusiastically gave us the history and details of the differences of our traditional plates we considered as well as the cheeses, north versus south cooking - you name it! The food was very good and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere - not too fancy, but just enough and very relaxing meal with friends.
