My favourite Italian Restaurant period...always excellent!!!
one of our favorite places for dinner , service and the food is excellent. it does get busy but worth the wait. make a reservation if needed. once this covid is over, the bar with live music and our favorite bartender selina , will have us coming back !
Great food and great atmosphere. Only issues were that food does take a good amount of time to get, so don't go hungry. And the wine is extremely expensive for the bottles you can get at total wine instead (3x).
Otherwise the food, people, ambience is amazing and was so much fun. If you bring your own bottle of wine there is a corkage fee of 30 dollars, we were happy it that
MEGHAN our server was absolutely outstanding, always concerned about how everything went. It was our 37th anniversary . She decorated the desserts herself. This is what you call service. The food was great .
It was extremely busy on a Saturday night, we did not get our food until 90 minutes after we were seated. I ordered a soup. $13 for a shallow plate of barely any soup seems a bit stiff. It should not take 90 minutes for a plate of soup. The seafood pappardelle was cold and sauce tasted burnt. We feel like the pappardelle was waiting on the pass for a very long time. The waitress did warn other patrons, don't come in on a Saturday or you will wait for your food for at least an hour. She wasn't wrong.
Had osso buco and was so tender with risotto and wine..Great service!
For Italian food that is superb, this is the place. It was packed but our reserved table was ready and waiting for us. They worked with us on gluten free options. Their olive tapenade is excellent.
The food was great, but I got overcharged $16.00 for a bottle of wine. I ordered a bottle of the house Sangiovese, which was listed for $40.00 but was charged $56.00.
Attentive waiter, excellent food, very large portions, great prices. It was our anniversary dinner date. The outdoor dining was still a bit romantic with the fire warmers lit. We had an awesome table for two. Complimentary glass of champagne and dessert of cannoli with Happy Anniversary written on the plate. They went above and beyond for us. We really enjoyed our whole dining experience and look forward to going back.
Everything was wonderful. The table for two was wobbly we and asked the waitress to get someone to fix it. They never came.
For a gourmet Italian place everything tasted like it was out of a can or package. Nothing fresh at all, not even a fresh basil leaf to top off the pasta dishes. If you're looking for anything at all resembling fresh Italian food go elsewhere.
'The only good part was the olive tapanade that came with the bread.
Great food and they did a great job of socially distancing. I love that they are dog friendly too!
With the current situation, "covid", the overall experience was very good. The wait staff was excellent. The food was above average.
Always an excellent meal and service by the staff especially Ashley and gentlemen helping her. I can't wait to come back again.
Bday dinner, so pleasant loved everything service way great
We were not impressed with our dining experience. We were celebrating my birthday and I was so disappointed. We were seated quickly but it was 15 minutes before anyone even greeted us at the table or brought us water. We got our salads rather quickly but didn’t get our entrees until an hour after we initially sat down. It took so long that we ended up taking our food to go. When we asked what was taking so long, the waitress said “it’s always busy on Saturdays” but half the restaurant was empty. The manager never came and apologized and we were very disappointed to pay full price for mediocre pasta and a terrible experience. I will not go back.
My son’s birthday and it was great. As always went above and beyond.
Excellent Friday night meal.
We where very disappointed in this place. Walked an hour for our appetizer then waited another hour for our food. The waitress was never seen. Only took our order. And then asked how the food was. Never came to apologize for the wait for food. While other tables complained. And we heard her say " well, if you go somewhere else the wait will be the same" which is totally untrue. Felt sorry for the bus boy/food runner, he was doing everything. A Table asked the waitress for water and she went straight to the bus boy to do it. Even over heard him tell her that he's the only one in this section that he can't do everything. I really felt bad for not having cash. I would of gave him the tip instead of the waitress. Waste of 2 half hours. Do not recommend this place for dinner.
The food was good and the service good as well but unfortunately we waited for our food for two hours. Our waiter told us it might be a while but two hours was a bit too much ever after having reservations. Definitely seated too many people that they were not able to handle on a Saturday night. But like I said, food and service was great so Im sure its better on a slow night or once they get their staffing or wait times down.
The food and service was outstanding, however, make sure you plan for a long leisurely diner.
I really enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent. If I had any feedback it would just be that the tagliatelle with bolognese was HUGE (isn’t always a bad thing) and the pasta to bolognese sauce was imbalanced. There was way more suave then there was pasta. All and all it was a good experience though. I will be back.
Delicious food, Great service! would go there again! Pricing ok. Children's menu.
Based on lack of protocol control the seating was out of control per the owner. Nervous for his situation threw us in the bar and provide a bartender as server. The rest is predictable. What was not predictable was the defensiveness of the owner when approached on this. Defensive is an understatement. More of deniable. I have been in the business forty plus year and am significant supporter of the regions hospitality so I comment with huge concern. Really sad to see this lack of service and hospitality.
The waitress was great knowledgeable about the wines and food , the food was fantastic, and my date loved it too
Had a reservation through Open Table but they still made us wait which made us wonder, What’s the point of using Open Table?
We were seated next to the bar slash make shift waiting area. There was one waiter that continuously argued with one of the bartenders which was kind of uncomfortable and awkward. We thought we were in an episode of Restaurant Impossible.
It took a long time time get silverware and the food took even longer. When it did finally arrived, the seafood pasta was great, spaghetti carbonara wasn’t all that. All in all it was okay, but with so many other dining options in the area we probably won’t be back.
Glad to see Gourmet Italia open once again and expanded into it's newish area and out into the parking lot. We sat in the new area and it was lovely. Food was excellent as usual and we are happy that they are now accepting reservations for parties of two, not just four and more as previously.
Food and service were excellent! Veal Parm is outstanding. Veal Limone was also very good. And DO NOT miss the Crostini appetizer! Tiaramisu was a great way to finish it off.
Our server, Megan is amazing. So friendly and helpful in choosing a fantastic dinner.
We had two birthdays to celebrate. It was a great experience and delicious food!
Always a Great Place for the best pasta and wine 💕
We had high expectations, but our entrees were tepid when served. We had to wait a long time for them, so they obviously were sitting for a long time before being served. Our server was apologetic and we did get a discount on our bill, but the whole experience was disappointing.
We have a new favorite restaurant in Temecula! Food was delicious , Ashley our server was wonderful, helped with great recommendations and filled us in on this great place! All of the staff was very good, a lot of teamwork like a family. The house wine was delicious. Better than a lot of the big wineries we have been to. Thanks for a great evening.
The food was subpar to say the least. Made a complaint to the server and was ignored the rest of the night
The owner is amazing. The waitress did a wonderful job & made our anniversary very special. Food was A+.
Gourmet Italia is excellent cuisine, the wait staff was superb as well.
Excellent food and service!!
The server did not wear her face covering properly. Her nose was exposed the entire time. If we test positive for COVID within the next few days, we will make sure to call the restaurant to report this.
Wonderful food and ambiance. All staff were extremely friendly. Great experience.
