Never know what really to expect in strip mall restaurants but the reviews convinced us to try it. Glad we did. The ambience was comfortable. The service outstanding. Oh, and sauce, out of this world. Being vegetarians, a good variety of choices- the veggie lasagna- would definitely order again. A lot of choices in Temecula but this is worthy of... More

The food and service were excellent. The tomato based sauce was very light, true Italian style. Deserts were outstanding. Even being located in the front section of a corner shopping center, it is a small intimate restaurant with linen tablecloths and napkins. Looking forward to returning to Gourmet Italia on our next trip to Southern California.

If you desire authentic Italian cuisine this is a must in Temecula. The restaurant is tucked away in a mall but well worth the visit. The calamari is lightly battered and not greasy what so ever. The Caesar salad was fresh and the dressing was made on the premises. The seafood linguini was cooked to perfection in a light tomato... More

Great meal, great service. A very special evening all together. Pretty much the other strong reviews were confirmed. We were visiting the area and delighted to find such a special place.

We came here for lunch when we were visiting for a wine tasting/birthday celebration weekend. The staff and owner are from Italy so that was the first plus. I had the lasagna which was fantastic and my husband had the special with mussels clams and calamari which he loved. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The decor and ambiance was... More

Unfortunately Gourmet Italia USED to be one of my must stops while in Temecula, however, tonight I had one of the most disappointing visits. There were several issues tonight. 1. They ran out of seats and sat an 8yr old girl in a high chair. 2. Groups that were seated after us where served their meal before us. 3. The... More

While my husband & I were visiting Temecula, we ate at Gourmet Italia and loved it! Our salad & meals were hot & delicious with a nice variety of food items to choose from. The fresh bread was wonderful! We also tried the tiramisu for dessert which was super. Will definitely be back when we are in the area. Real... More

We have been to Gormet Italia many times since moving here in September. This is an excellent Italian restaurant. The owner Alex, his family and staff are amazing as is the food. We were there last weekend for a surprise party for a family member. They took the time to make her feel special on a significant birthday. This is... More

We always come here for dinner everytime i visit Temecula. Great food and atmosphere. The owner is so friendly and warm. Always crowded. On the weekend, they have music.

We've been going to Gourmet Italia and enjoying great local Italian food for over a decade now. Alex runs a good operation and will always warmly welcome you. The food is fantastic. I've had just about everything on the menu and find that I like it all.
