Been coming here at least once a year for many years. Always a great meal at resonably prices. Pastas, come in a smaller size which is plenty by the time you enjoy sharing some appetizers, calamari ect. Every thing here very tasty and excellent service. Reservations here are always a good idea.

We were here a few years ago and remembered it again for our last night in the desert this year, before returning to Canada. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, on the patio.. the Caprese salad was delicious. The veal and the salmon were perfect and the Tiramisu!!! The service was very attentive. We will be back, it is difficult to... More

I have spent the summer searching restaurants for my father in law. Let me just say I found the best. I've been to the Cork Tree right next door. I laugh as I sit in a family oriented business and eat THE BEST SEA BASS EVER. it literally melts in your mouth. The staff are friendly and warm. The prices... More

We had a quick lunch before our Adventure Hummer Tour. Service was very quick . Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was really delicious. Would definitely eat there again. My cesear salad was the best I have had anywhere. Not drowned in dressing very crisp and fresh.

A nice Italian restaurant, but it didn't knock my socks off. We were seated inside the nearly full space, but because of the bright overhead lights and the perfect temperature outside, we were pleasantly seated in the patio. Our table for two was fortunately buffered from the parking lot view by a wide pillar. Table votive lights and corner greenery... More

We had a late lunch on the patio. We were the only people at the restaurant perhaps due to the odd time we went which was 3:00 pm. We had very polite and attentive service. Our server was extremely personable making our dining experience enjoyable. The food was basic but tasted very good. The bread was crusty and served warm... More

A visit here on a Sunday afternoon finds this place deserted. Jose was our server and he was a bit pushy about selling the wine at @$10 a glass. The fettuccine with mushrooms was overjoyed. The sunset linguine was good. They do not include salad and the bread is bare minimum. A $13 pasta with no meat is steep.

This is an average Italian restaurant. In fact our expectation was higher than what we found. Wine was good, pasta was OK, but the meat and the desserts were unsatisfactory. In the area you won't have much choices, so this place can be used for an average lunch.

Started with the caprese salad. Cheese was very good but served on top of a hard, not ripe tomato. Followed with the sea bass special. Fish was fine, nothing special. Vegetables were dripping in garlic for no good reason. My husband had the clams which were average. Absolutely nothing outstanding except the wine list, which is good because it makes... More

We had a very pleasant and relaxing dinner. Staying at the Palm Desert Marriott and wanted to walk to dinner outside the resort. Great service, excellent menu and wonderful bread. Between us our orders included calamari, clams in white sauce ,clams in red sauce ,salad and a fish entree. Very tasty. Will not disappoint.
