We tried two kinds of pizza, a salad, and gelato......all excellent. The pizza is real Italian food, which makes fast food pizza a different food product. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The iced tea was flavorful.

This was one of the best pizzas we have had and it was so good that the kids vowed never to have Domino's again! It was fresh and hot and very tasty. We ordered three pizzas and each was good. The service was very friendly. Its in the River shopping center and we went there after a movie. The sizes... More

This was one of those places I've always wanted to try -- especially since it's three blocks from my house. We sat down and ordered two salads and a pizza (the latter to share). I immediately noticed the service was kind of weird. The people at the next table had one entree, a lasagna, served and the other diner's order,... More

This pizza is authentic right down to the restaurant being reluctant to slice it. The wood oven, the crust and simple ingredients are all very traditional. I spent a lot of time in Italy in the 1970's and 1980's and had forgotten how wonderful a simple Italian pizza can be. Well here you can get it right in Rancho Mirage.... More

Lots of fun with a huge selection of food, not just pizza. Our son did prefer his own made one though. The staff were very friendly. No charge for sparkling water which is good. Great meat lovers pizza and pretty good wine menu too. Atmosphere was fun. Definitely suited to families.

Loved this yummy Italian joint! Now, this is pizza made with top notch ingredients, used in a manor that allows the flavors to shine.....and the salads were out of sight We ate on a Monday and they offered a free cheese pizza with every pizza ordered. What a deal. the place had a great atmosphere, trendy, but not too much... More

Located at The River, this is one of the quickest places in the area to eat before the show...if you can get a seat. Gourmet pizzas are served uncut, Italian style. There is a good assortment of other main dishes. Once inside, the restaurant has the feel of a small metro pizza cafe. Waiters were attentive and very polite. We... More

Michael's opened this summer and we have been there once a week since we found it! The Pizza here is simply the best we have ever had anywhere! Everyone we have brought to this restaurant has become a regular. Don't expect Pepperoni Pizza because they don't offer it. Instead try one with squash blossoms and honey, or one the Zucca... More
