It was my 70th birthday dinner, outstanding service the moment we walked in the door. The servers were extremely friendly and quick with bread and water (our water glass was never half full). Food was outstanding, best Italian restaurant in Palm Desert.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago

If you can eat in only one Italian restaurant in the Valley, make it this one. Besides incredible atmosphere, and outstanding wait-staff, the food here is amazing. There were four of us and we all ordered differently, two on the waiter's recommendations. All of us were blown-away by the food, it was great. I had a Chanti recommended by the... More

Service is great, food is good. In my opinion it's one of the 2 best Italian restaurants in the area. There pasta dishes are great, somewhat overpriced in my opinion, but what I had would be hard to beat anyplace. Very popular with tourists, there are pictures adorning the walls of the restaurant of well known people who have patronized... More

Yes, we thought it had it all. The service was very attentive and personable without being obtrusive. Our table was ready at the time we reserved it ( too often it’s not the case.) We were seating on the porch which was less noisy than the main dining area and still had a nice atmosphere. After a very good salad... More

Reminded me of eating Italian in NYC as a kid. A real host, professional waiters, a friendly environment, and GREAT food. We all had a fantastic evening. A real treat in the land of chain restaurants. Don't miss it.

Yowza....this place is the real deal. We've been to plenty of excellent Italian restaurants over the years and this one is right up there close to the top. It has an old school feel to it and a great vibe. Live piano on some nights with a very intimate atmosphere, we just loved it. Now onto the food, it was... More

I took my husband here for his 83rd Birthday and it was an enjoyable meal with good food and service. The piano player added to the ambiance of the enjoyable dinner. Our seafood pasta and risotto dishes were well made with lots of seafood and fish. The red and orange beet salad with goat cheese, balsamic dressing also fresh and... More

Great food and wine and excellent service will keep us coming back. Prices are very reasonable for a classy establishment of this type. A plus is the valet parking and was able to reserve online. Overall great experience. Highly recommended.

Wonderful pastas, perfectly prepared seafood and good wine make for a relaxed and romantic evening. The wine list is extensive and reasonable especially for the area. We love the Italian wines and they are plentiful and reasonable. Do not miss the desserts, the Tiramisu is exceptional.
