My husband and I enjoyed a yummy dinner and now have a new Temecula favorite. Great food- we had clams linguine and the red snapper special- delicious. Menu features many local wines. Great service.

Read about Palumbo's online and decided to give it a try. Members of our group had both pizza and pasta, both were well cooked. Service was good as well. Would eat here again.

We had the Bruschetta al Prosciutto for our app and the Chef Frank's special pizza. Both were fabulous. Already planning a return trip so we can try the pasta. We highly recommend this roof. The service is great, beer was good, wine was good. A can't miss Italian restaurant.

An average Italian Ristorante, food is nothing impressive and service is really slow, my wife and I ordered the Lasagna & Fetuccini, my friends ordered the Spaghetti with spinach and a Pizza Margherite; Lasagna was over cooked, the rest of the dishes were so so... Definitively you can find better restaurant alternatives in Temecula !!!

We visited on a Wednesday night that was unusually crowded and understaffed. But even under these circumstances, we had outstanding service! Edy, the owner, was our server and she was working right beside her crew. I found that to be an extremely great quality in a business owner. My guest and I both ordered the Salmon Picatta Florentine. It had... More

Palumbo’s is a quaint Italian restaurant on a side street off the main tourist street (Front St.) with both inside and patio seating. One of the best features of the restaurant is it’s off the noisy main drag and has great food! Avoid weekends in Old Town not because of the volume of tourists but because “Old Town” is a... More

Palumbo's looked like it had potential. But, in a nutshell, it was bland, over priced, and even though there were only a few tables (another telltale sign) the service was SLOW. The only plus I can give this place is that the wait staff was nice.

We were treated to dinner by my new son-in-laws parents a few days before the wedding. This was a great choice because we could get a nice table for eight of us and hear each other and enjoy really nice Italian food. The carbonara was great, as was the baked penne. Salads were also very good. Wine was reasonable and... More
