5 of us went to this restaurant about 7:30 last night & were really disappointed. Friends live in the area & recommended it. Very busy which may be an excuse but service was extremely poor. Slow taking our order (gathered up the menus thinking we had ordered when we hadn't!!)?? Then once ordered... read more

We always went to the Nicolino's in Palm Springs, but thought we would try this one out. It was a great experience. The atmosphere was excellent and service was great. The type you would expect from an owner operated place. the waiter we had was very enjoyable and was great with our kids.

We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at this Italian restaurant. Seated in the front area, our waiters were very fun and knowedgeable about the large menu selections. We had the basics: Veal Parmesean, Veal Picatta, Spagetti and meatballs, and Lasagne ... and were all pleased. The garlic bread is amazing. Substantial wine list and well-stocked bar. Good food at a very... More

Trilussa's Ristorante was a Saturday evening second choice Italian restaurant. We were surprised! Although we saw many tables ordering pizza we wanted pasta. Lasagna and a penne spinach sausage pasta with red sauce were our choices. These turned out to be really good choices consistent with wait staff suggestions. A huge and wonderful tiramisu dessert to share topped off by... More

We went twice last month and both times we used a groupon (why not) and took home our left over pizza and pasta for lunch the next day. Both times the service was good and attentive. The pizzas in this place are the bomb! We prefer the front dining room or a both right on the left side in the... More

What restaurant is willing to have a party of over forty people arrive at once and provide separate checks? Not many and serve very good food too. Kudos to Nicolino's. Linguini with white clam sauce as good as New York or New Jersey. The angel hair pasta in a red sauce was very good too. We had a great time.... More

Made reservations. Arrived ahead of time. Seated right away. It was Wednesday before Thanksgiving so surprised we were seated so quickly. Waiter took our drink order and food order. Wine came quickly along with some bread and butter. Order the Antipasto Salad and salad with blue cheese. Salad came with an Italian dressing, not the blue cheese. The main entree's... More

I brought my GF here on a Friday night for dinner. The place seemed decently busy, but from the moment we entered, we felt ignored. It took about 10 minutes for someone (owner's wife?) to come up to the hostess stand, and then tell us that the only table available is the one in the bar area, next to the... More
