Gourmet Italia would be one of the best anywhere you put it. Beautiful interior, excellent service, Good local and Italian wines, very reasonably priced and the food is to die for. My wife had a moist Sea Bass and I had linguini with the ocean, yes just about everything in the ocean, from large portions of calamari, shrimp, green muscles... More

Although it's in a strip mall it has an old school Italian restaurant vibe. Wonderful service and excellent and authentic food.

I just love this place for authenticity, it has it hands down. Little bit of a wait but totally worth it. Love the owner, Alex, always greets with a smile and a hug. I had the eggplant parmesan, very healthy portion size and I ate every little morsel! A really great choice of wines and cocktails. Love finishing off my... More

Gourmet Italia is our favorite date night restaurant in Temecula. Excellent food, ambiance, live music on the weekends, and people.

Best cannollni I have ever had. For me Italian food is always over priced for what you are served. The place is small and crowded, but some may think it is quaint and romantic Probably will not go back.

What a hidden gem in a strip mall. Third time here,first with wife. 2 minute wait at 8:15 on a Friday night. Enjoyed the tomato & mozzarella first and it was sooo good. Wife ordered gnocchi in pesto and I had veal limone and both were superb. Desserts were amazing also! Easy to see pride in Angelo and the wait... More

This place is a great nugget to find in a sea of middle of the road restaurants.... it's cozy, fun, had great attentive service in spite of being packed. The food portions were big but great quality and everyone enjoyed their meals in a party of 10 people, so that's saying something. I would recommend this place, the prices were... More

A small hidden gem nestled in a small shopping center. Once inside you forget that and are surrounded with the aroma of Italy. From appetizers to pastas to delicible specials, the food and service is great. While the interior is small and seating a bit cramped, it will become your favorite place

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
