Pleasantly surprised at the menu that offered a nice selection of early bird dinners and very fair pricing for quality food and service! 2 meals, 3 course for $29.00. Crazy and good. Our servers were so attentive and personable. Knowledgable too~ We were some of the first people in the restaurant for dinner. Soon after the tables began to fill.... More

We went during Palm Springs restaurant week. There were 2 of us and we did not have reservations. This is a very nice restaurant with good service. The food was plentiful and tasty. Nice decor. Has an open and airy. Nice bar.

Everything about an Italian restaurant that you thought we left behind in the 1950's. A predictable menu of red-sauce italian stand-bys consisting of limp overcooked pasta, insipid sauces, soggy vegetables and overcooked entries. I had heard only good things about this restaurant before my first visit but it was truly AWFUL. The chef's night off?

We are happy hour semi-regulars at Trilussa. The happy hour menu offers good value both for food and drinks. The barman is a real marvel - he's worth double whatever they are paying him. And the bonus is that on Thursdays thru the weekend (Friday out of season, I think), they have terrific entertainment in the form of Sylvia and... More

We had decided to go to Trilussa for my Auntie's 85th birthday. Having not been there before, we at the mercy of the the wait staff and the menu which we haven't yet tried. It couldn't have been better! We had lived in Northern California for many years and gotten used to the food at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco,... More

Loved Trilussa! After dining at several local mediocre Italian restaurants serving microwaved food, it was a pleasure to find Trilussa. The food was fresh, service good and restaurant attractive. The bread sticks and basket of bread with pesto sauce were very good. Chicken Marsala and Fettuccine Carbonara with Shrimp were delicious. Sorry we didn't have room at the end to... More

An outstanding meal with great service! All three of us had different meal selections & all felt the food was outstanding. Elizabeth was an attentive and helpful waitress, who ably aided us with menu choices. I'll be back!

Recently we had a special dinner for 20 on a Friday night in their private room. We worked with Pablo, the manger, and Josh, his assistant, in setting up this event. They were extremely professional and helpful in all regards including a printed three course prix fixe menu (just for us) that our guests could select from that evening. The... More

Nice outdoor evening dining with patio heaters. Chicken Marsala was quite good. Nice touch to serve complimentary amaretto and biscotti after dinner. Mostly 50 & over crowd.
