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.
