After eating at Calhoun’s, I now wish I lived in Murrieta! I can’t say enough about how good this BBQ is. The meat is tender, juicy, and cooked to perfection. These folks have mastered BBQ. If you go there looking for a fancy restaurant or a lot of tables you’ll be disappointed. If you go looking for great BBQ, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I ate there almost two months ago and I’m still thinking about it!

Trattoria Toscana is a quaint, boutique Italian restaurant that creates an authentic Tuscan-Sardinian-Italian cultural experience, rich in the appreciation of high-quality food and wine. Trattoria Toscana caters to those who savor authentic, home-made Italian meals that bring out the flavors of each ingredient. Chef Pietro, born in Sardinia, carefully selects fresh, local ingredients to create daily specials as well as imports from Italy to create high quality, homemade Tuscan and Sardinian meals. Here at Trattoria Toscana, Chef Pietro draws on his Italian and Sardinian roots to bring the community a true Italian experience, transporting his guests to Italy for a delicious, enjoyable meal. He believes that the best flavors come from fresh food, using the highest quality ingredients, prepared daily, just as they do in Italy. Chef Pietro prepares his dishes with care and passion, attending to every detail. He makes the pasta and bread from scratch each day. He rolls housemade tortelloni and ravioli by hand. His gnocchi is made in house with potatoes and imported pecorino cheese, using his mother's recipe. You can find the staples of Italian cuisine, olive oil and tomatoes, in many of his dishes. He chooses to use high quality, extra virgin olive and truffle oils from Italy to ensure that his dishes have the authentic flavors of Italy. He sun dries tomatoes by hand using fresh, organic tomatoes to accentuate the flavors of his dishes, such as our popular Pappardelle con Funghi. Chef Pietro refrains from preparing his dishes far in advance, in order to preserve the tradition of preparing his dishes on the spot. This technique requires time for preparation and provides our guests with a leisurely dining experience, a time to relax and enjoy the company of others, sipping a lovely glass of wine, upholding Italian dining tradition. Cuisine is a passion and a past time in Italy, a time to revel in delightful flavors using just the right ingredients, and investing the time in its preparation every day. The interior décor, inspired by Chef Pietro's Sardinian and Tuscan roots and woodworking background, creates a quaint, authentic Italian dining experience. Pietro's own sculpted functional artwork made from recycled wood, his hand-crafted wine bar tiled with stone, and exquisitely crafted Italian window frames filled with Tuscan hillside paintings transport you to a hilltop in Tuscany where you can enjoy tantalizing food, wine and a true Italian experience at the table. Come taste the joy of Italian dining here in Temecula!
Easy to miss this store front restaurant. Fairly small but were seated quickly and ordered wine and the tri-colour bruschetta,which was excellent. I had the gnocchi Gorgonzola and my wife had a chicken pasta dish, both were very good.
The service was interesting, started with a waitress and ended with a rather officious waiter who spent quite a bit of time at the bar with the owner. He also reorganized some tables, I am not sure Iwould want to be there when they are busy!

We had breakfast with our family on our last morning in Murrieta. The food was hot and delicious with good sized portions. The service was A-1 and the prices are quite reasonable. It was quite busy but we were there on a weekend so it seems this is a very popular restaurant.

My family will tell you this is something I love and I order fish and chips a lot. I really enjoyed this dish at J Carter's. Add to that live entertainment and it was an enjoyable night out.

Three of us had dinner at 5:00pm on a Sunday. Seating inside and out but only room for 16 inside. You order at the cash register and your meal is brought to your table. Many people in and out for carryout. This restaurant was clean,...MoreHi Jim, thank you for taking the time to leave this great review!

Welcome to Nonno's Ristorante! We're proud to offer a wide array of authentic italian dishes and desserts made from the finest ingredients available. Our boutique wine list features selections from local area wineries including Wiens and Robert Renzoni.Buon Appetito!
Unbelievable meal. Unexpected find! We love the Bruscetta that started our meal. Had a delicious chicken & vegetable soup with hot, baked bread. Chose one of the nightly specials which was astounding. And, had to end our italian meal with cannoli's and coffee. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone I know. Can't wait to go back.

Our wait was about 30 minutes to be seated 10 for our server to take our order and another 20 for breakfast to arrive. The food was average but decent portion size. The cost of eggs and more, benedict and omelet choices is about $12 each.

new location in Murrieta - if you google it you'll find local news articles
Compared to other fast food chains, the Habit is better. The service is quick, there is a system in place for ordering and getting your food. You are given a buzzer that flashes when your meal is ready. One person puts the order together while another actually presents it to you. And all the while you can see the cooks making the food in the kitchen. It's an efficient system. The burgers are okay, fresh but nothing special.
