Our family was ready to celebrate Mother's Day at Gourmet Italia.  Made reservations, showed up on time. Much to our dismay, we found ourselves, like other groups, enduring an extended wait.  What!?!? We asked others how long they were waiting for their own reservations; we...were told some folks were still waiting for AN HOUR after their reservation! WHAT?!?!? Sorry, Gourmet Italia, but that type of overbooking is utterly disrespectful of patrons.  Your food is good, but it doesn't warrant that lack of consideration for patrons.  Thankfully, Trattoria Toscana was doing a soft opening at their new location.  While waiting outside at Gourmet Italia we called Trattoria; they said they could take us right away. Glad that we moved our party to Trattoria, where we were treated with respect, so that we could respect our family's Guest of Honor on Mother's Day!More

Took a friend out for a celebratory dinner. Started with lemon drop martini, very tasty. Celene was our server and did an xlnt job. Salad was ordered next. Had an insalata Fattore, mixed greens, kalamata olives, slices of mozzarella and tomatoes. Lightly dressed with olive...and vinegar. So very good and fresh. My entree was Amatriciana and was xlnt. Spaghetti with a spicy red sauce. Yum. Finished off with a glass of oaky and buttery chardonnay.More

This restaurant is the tops. First class service and food. The wait staff is very friendly and courteous. The food is truly a reflection of the chef! Top notch! The ambience is very cozy and is perfect for couples, whether it's a first date or...a 50th anniversary celebration. My only comment is that while we all love music and it can be wonderful to dine with, this venue is a little small for the volume of the music. I suggest turning it way down, so your patrons can still have a decent conversation.More

Perfect place to go when wanting xlnt Italian cuisine. You know you won't be disappointed! Started with a lovely glass of chardonnay and salad. My main course choice was eggplant Parmigiano and I ate every single bit of it.😀 just be aware if you are...in a hurry this is not the right place for you. But if you enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where you can linger and savor every moment and your food and company then it is for you.More

We used to love this place. The food and service used to be amazing, but now the service just got from bad to worse! Note, we supported them regardless of sudden drop in food quality because we wanted to support local businesses due to the...pandemic, but this experience was so unpleasant, I would not recommend this place to anyone. The manager named Alex kept kept saying he would take our order literally every time he took other peoples order who CAME AFTER US. Can you believe it??? We got there first! Talk about being rude. He did this several times until my husband and I decided to call it quits. We felt like idiots standing there for 10-15 minutes waiting to be helped. This place is totally not worth it considering their food is just mediocre. We will never come here again, but on a good note this experience allowed us to find another Italian place across the street, which is an absolute hidden gem!More

Seven of us ordered assorted dishes and everyone thought the food was delicious. The chicken parmesan was especially good.

We did a girls wine tasting trip this weekend and had a great time, topped it off with an amazing dinner at Gourmet Italia, so good!!! Great service, elegant (considering we were outside b/c of Covid), they've really done a nice job setting it up...to still look nice with white table cloths keeping the ambiance of fine dining. We all loved it!More

We were so excited to visit Temecula now that the wineries are reopened. We had a great day and were so happy to end it with a fabulous meal. It did take a while for our order to be taken and the food came out...slowly but was definitely worth the wait. We had delicious meals and will come back again!More

My family asked me to join them for a dinner and it was excellent. My 11 and 12 year old grandchildren made our party of 5. I had rack of lamb, two had fresh lobster ravioli, one gnocchi, and one seafood linguini. We all had...fresh Caesar with anchovy dressing and we shared a limoncello desert. Great wine choices. So very good. Specials daily. Such attentive service even with a full restaurant. For freshly cooked quality Italian meals, you can’t go wrong. It’s not a huge restaurant so I suggest you call to let them know that you are coming.More

I understand that pizza is gluten free. I don't know if they offer any gluten free pasta. You might want to call and ask before heading that way. Love their pumpkin ravioli especially for the holidays. Good luck!
