The service was superb. The Caesar salad was very ordinary I was surprised for such a great place. They need to add anchovies and more cheese to the Caesar salad. The seafood risotto was outstanding and very delicious. The trio gelato was like being back in Italy. The gelato flavors were more than what I expected. And the cheese bread that they give you I could have eaten a whole loaf.
Great place. You will not regret it.

My wife and I made a return visit rto Catelli’s while on holiday in Palm Desert. The restaurant continues to offer good Italian fare and reasonable prices. The waiters are efficient and friendly and the overall experience is very pleasant. The dining room at the rear, which apoears to be the newest, is extremely noisy at peak hours.

Well, service was ok. Would have appreciated a little bit more enthousiasm!

Foods were ok. No more. Not hot enough and not as tasty as original italian cuisine normally is.

This restaurant had been suggested by the hotel’s concierge as a pretty good restaurant. Not sure they know what a good italian restaurant is.

Will need to test another time to make sure I have not just been bad lucked.

Will share then ...

We first went to Castilli's 2 years ago when visiting Palm Desert. It was a great experience so we decided to go back again while visiting. Our dinner was excellent and only thing better was the service. From the moment you walk in to the valet service when you leave, everything is perfection. Their menu is vast. Options for everyone and the quality of the food is exceptional. We enjoy the servers as much as the food. Friendly, helpful and just wonderful. It was a Monday evening and the place was full by 7pm. Obviously an indication of their wonderful reputation. Don't miss this place if you're in the area. Consistently wonderful!

We had dinner here in March 2018, during the BNP Paribas Tennis Open at Indian Wells. I would agree with what many of the reviews said: service is very fast, so you don't get to "linger"very long. But the waitstaff were very peasant and attentive-not overly so. The food was excellent. we were seated in the front of the restaurant which faces a frontage road. The room is almost like a sun room in an old style home--not particularly nice but not too loud. The food was excellent, and the portions quite large. Unless you're very hungry, you would probably do well to split a portion.
