Have been going here often the last year and a half and have always enjoyed this place for Italian food, Had a party of 6 and not one person could say anything good about their food. Very disappointing to be anticipating a good italian meal and be served such poor food!

I had read about D'Carlos on Trip Advisor before going to Palm Springs. It wasn't the easiest place to find, but I can tell you that its across Bob Hope Drive from the River Shopping Center. It had great pizza. That was all we tried, but we went back again during our time in PS. It was always crowded, which... More

Ate here with friends after golf. Was very surprised at the restaurant because it was in a shopping center and not advertised. The food was very good and the selection was large. The wine came in a large glass filled to the brim. Prices were very reasonable and service was great. Will go again

This was the first time that a TripAdvisor review steered me to the wrong place. While the food was certainly not bad, it did not live up the reviews. They do, however, know how to poor a big glass of wine! It is a very affordable, nothing fancy kind of place.

All the dishes that Mario's used to do fairly well, are improved upon here. Still reasonably priced. Bargain house wine. This is a fun place to go for some pretty decent Italian food, at fair prices. Don't let the fact that it is in a strip mall sway you. It's worth the effort. My favorite dish is the Cannelloni. Order... More

All entrees (5) came to the table room temp. Server said sorry and wills have them remade. Microwave remade! Owner cleared our table because it was 8:45 and he wanted his staff to get out as well as us.

I have been to Italy several times, and this place rivals some of the best I've eaten in. I watch my food choices, and was so pleased that they had whole wheat pasta. They also offer half portions! I had the whole wheat pasta with meat ball. The sauce is wonderful and so are the meatballs. My friend and I... More

This place is great! The bolognese sauce is wonderful. It's so good that I can never bring myself to order anything else except their spaghetti with bolognese sauce. My friends say the chicken marsala and pizza are very good also. Seating is very limited so at peak dinner or lunch, there may be a wait. So wait because they are... More

I was so excited today to be scoping thru "old" pictures on my Picasa and to come across pics from our visit to D'Carlos. We went there a few years ago with the guidance of a Palm Springs resident and with return visits to the area could not remember the name or the area this gem was. Our D'Carlos experience... More

I live in Rancho Mirage and just discovered D'Carlos. This is a small bistro with good traditional Italian food. You can seldom go wrong with spaghetti and meatballs. We liked it. The house red wine was surprisingly good, and the glass was filled to the brim. We shall return there. I liked it. Sometimes, little bistros have an off night,... More
