There are two Nicolino's restaurants in the Valley, this one is in Palm Springs on El Cielo, near the Palm Springs Airport. They have an extensive menu of traditional and more updates Italian dishes. Their lunch menu is wonderful with a large selection, from lite to full meals. IF you like sandwiches some excellent choices, or pasta dishes. Its a... More

This restaurant is close to PSP airport and offers good Italian food along with a diverse menu. In reading some of the other reviews, some unfair in my view, this restaurant offers good Italian "comfort food" at a fair price. Definitely a notch or two above Olive Garden and other chain restaurants, however, not 5-star either. Friendly, helpful and attentive... More

Nicolino's Italian Kitchen is a throw back: it is an old school, red and white checked table cloth type Italian restaurant that has seen its day. Located in a strip center on El Cielo, Nicolino's Italian Kitchen is quite unimpressive from the outside. On the inside, it's not much better. Dark lighting, tables with glass tops, and vinyl covered booths... More

I ve read recent reviews and it brings me to think that it all depends on what you order whether you ll be satisfied or not. Recently we stopped by twice. Bypass the restaurant and eat in the bar. More tv sports. I had the special of the day a chopped sirloin my date had the flat bread pizza. No... More

This place is an abomination. We are Italian decent. My wife is from Italy and I am a back-east Italian from Boston. We spent over $50 for canned or jarred tomato "sauce". Nasty! The veal parm was soggy. The pizza was soggy. I wouldn't feed this food to my Italian dog. They have no idea how to cook authentic Italian... More

My husband ordered spaghetti & meatballs and while it was a good size plate of pasta was average tasting. My dish was one of their specialty entrees and while it was a huge plate of pasta, chicken, pine nuts it was bland tasting not flavored very well. In fact the dish first served didn't have the pine nuts and the... More
