This place has authentic tasting Italian food and is located along a quiet side street in old town Temecula. Perfect setting for a date night or family dinner with very reasonable prices and hearty portions. Everything we ordered was amazing and they have the best Rosemary bread! Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed.

Three of us split the sausage app, Caesar salad and pizza - all were delicious! The pizza was thin crust and about the best I've ever had (get the fully loaded pizza). Service was a bit slow but certainly worth the wait. We will go back again. Prices are reasonable. There's also a nice selection of wines.

On a chance, I booked lunch reservations for Father's Day and boy, did we strike gold! The food was amazing. My husband had lasagna which was amazing. We started off with their steamed clams. OMG. The sauce was amazing. My penne paste was so excellent with homemade sausage. One of the owners came around to check on the food! Loved... More

So much in Old Temeculah is bar food, but not so Palumbo's Ristorante. Four friends strolled the town reading menus and rejecting most of them. Once we read Palumbo's we said the search is over! Lovely atmosphere, very tasteful, impeccable service and staff, extensive menu. We each ordered different items from the menu and they were all excellent! Can't say... More

My husband is very picky about his Italian food (he's a Jersey boy who knows his stuff). After our meal at this restaurant, he ranked at the top of his list! My Chicken Piccata Salad was absolutely delicious and very healthy, and the hub had the Eggplant Parmesan. Nice location in the heart of Old Town, with a beautiful covered... More

Temecula is absolutely loaded with interesting places to eat, both in town, and at many of the nearby wineries. As a result, weekend visitors swarm the entire area and it gets pretty difficult to get around. On our last visit, we ate at Palumbo’s, a restaurant specializing in Italian foods. The menu is lengthy and offers many types of foods... More

We stopped here on a Tuesday evening for dinner. The place was pretty much empty. The wait staff was attentive, the atmosphere was cordial. We starred off with calamari, very nice, not over cooked or greasy. Entrees were lasagna & chicken parmigiana. Both were average. Overall, a pleasant experience.

A couple of my girlfriends and I wandered into Palumbo's never having been there before. I wasn't impressed at first because once seated it took quite the time for us to be acknowledged by anyone, let alone get bread or water. Our waitress finally arrived, was sweet and apologized and we promptly received waters, fantastic homemade focaccia bread and some... More

Good lunch menu. Soup and salad was great. Nice atmosphere with soft background music. Good area for outside seating. Limited beer selection/ not a micro brewery. Decent wine selection.
