Wow, have they raised their prices or what? Summer is here, and the owner is gouging the locals. First off, they give you a nibble tray.....never can count diners and how many olives to put out....never enough! If you are a table of 4, they put 3 out....makes sense to me? Go figure!! No blue cheese taste in the blue... More

this was a good place to go for traditional italian food. the antipasto they gave us for free was old and stale and not good at all. The salad was good. The pasta was nice as well. Waiters were friendly.

We took my mom here Mother's Day weekend and she loved it. The charming gentleman at the front door (owner?) was so kind and accommodating. The house merlot was very good. I had the shrimp scampi starter and while it was small (4 pieces) the sauce was excellent and perfect portion for me. The Gorgonzola salad was delicious. We had... More

Despite its blah, strip mall location, once I stepped inside the front door I felt like I was in a NY Italian restaurant. Smallish, cozy, a little noisy, and the aroma of garlic and cheese. This is sort of upscale too, not cheap, so forget the shorts and flip flops if you come here. The food is great, a solid... More

Great atmosphere, great service, great food. I had the veal scaloppini torrice which is similar to veal Milanese. It was fantastic as was the shrimp scampi. Highly recommend this place.

I believe my review is going to follow the review of the couple that recommended this restaurant to us while hanging out at the pool at La Quinta Resort. Thank you Kevin S. for this recommendation! Being from upstate New York we didn't expect the authentic Italian food that we get on the east coast but Chapelli's didn't disappoint. Reservations... More

Chapelli's is the real deal for great Italian food in La Quinta. The food, wine, and service were all terrific. Our server Julio was wonderful. We had an excellent calamari appetizer and had veal piccata and shrimp scampi. All were terrific. The bread pudding desert was also go. We are going back again to try a couple of the many... More
