Great Italian food. mid-price

The Nicolinos in Cathedral City is an excellent mid-priced Italian restaurant. The pasta dishes are great, but I love the fish dinner. They have nightly specials. Also don't over look the sandwiches which are excellent. The dinner salad is wonderful and the best dinner rolls in town. Some times... read more

Really good food. Service is spot on. I have been going here for several years and never disappointed! Plenty of parking. Usually busy during peak dinner hours on Friday and Saturday.

Each year for the past three, I have traveled to Palm Springs, Mission Hills Country Club for the Mountain West Conference Women's Golf Championship in April. A few weeks ago I started researching restaurants to visit during my stay and read various reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor for Nicolino's. I always read what my fellow posters write especially on...

Four of us went here for dinner before going to the Casino. I had the Salmon Special. It was stone cold. I wondered if it was ordered by someone else who returned it. It looked like it has sat around all day. The rest of the party got cold to piping hot. Didn't like it won't go back. I am... More

Best pizza in town by a mile. Worth the wait and the cost. Best thing is that i can call and order to go, and drive there and in 25 minutes, dinner is ready!!

My husband and I were looking for some yummy pasta and tried Nicolino's. They have great specials and daily deals that come with bread/salad/pasta/dessert. They're a perfect size when you don't want a ginormous pile of food. They're our go to stop when we need something pasta but not an entire dinner. Plus, their pizza is pretty good, too.

We come here often. We love the bar and the bar menu which is really a great deal. They have generous pours on their drinks too. We have also eaten in the dining room and love everything they have. Can't praise it enough. During the winter, I highly recommend reservations in the dining room.

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 it took a solid hour for food.... More
