On a return visit, this time with three friends, our food was as reliable as in the past. The waiter kind of overdid the 'friendly' but did a good job. Unfortunately the music makes conversation difficult unless you can sit outside. Will return for the good food but don't think they need loud... read more

A relatively new restaurant in Cathedral City, I was impressed with the friendliness of the servers, the ease at being seated with no reservations, and the quality of the food. The server allowed us to split a Caesar salad with was wonderfully crisp and tasteful. I asked the waited to alter the Carbonara to my preferences and it was wonderfully... More

We stopped in at Trilussa on a busy Saturday evening with no reservation, but thankfully were able to grab a couple of seats in the bar area. We ordered a very tasty combination pizza, mista salad, and wine. We then kicked back to enjoy the food and fantastic live music provided by the talented duo performing there. Wonderful Italian food,... More

My wife and I spit a "bassa", a white fish dinner and it was excellent. Our salads were very good. There was a small split fee which... More

Close to Palm Springs and right on the 111, Trilussa is a great restaurant with great service. Meals are delicious and it's a fun atmosphere always packed with people. The Italian food is superb and outdoor dining with a mountain view is great.

Our server Elizabeth really made our evening. Four of us went for Friday evening dinner, sat on patio as restaurant was more noisy. From the beginning, Elizabeth's very professional style set the tone for a wonderful evening. Our appetizers were very good, main courses were very good but the professionalism & attention to detail by servers is what set this... More

This place is decent. They had a Sunset Special with appetizer, entree and dessert for $16.95. Had the minestrone soup, which had potatoes in it. Good soup, just odd to have potatoes. The calamari was crispy and good. The marinara sauce was thin and salty. The lasagna was homemade and decent. Same marinara sauce. Had tiramisu for desert. Wasn't a... More

Place is quite nice looking and have an extensive menu with traditional dishes (including pizza). Although dishes were OK they were nothing special. Fruite-de-mare Risotto was more paella like than Risotto (too much tomato sauce). Appetizer of "Olives and Shaved Parmesan" had good amount cheese and exactly 6 olives.

We tried a pizza there a few years ago. It had a ready made pizza shell that completely turned us off. Haven't been back.
