One of the best happy hours in Palm Springs area!

Went here 2 times the week I was here! Good well martinis are only $6 and they are delicious. Imported beer only $4...plus well drinks and wines. Appetizers are affordable--most less than $10--large and filling. My favorites were the homemade lasagna and manicotti bolognese. Also there are... read more

Happy Hour from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM so offers plenty of opportunity to visit the bar. Great stop after seeing a movie at Mary Pickford; just across the street. We ordered a thin crust pizza, pasta and chicken parmesan; all delicious. Great prices that rival the small side restaurant at Mama Gina's on El Paseo. Nice staff, dining room... More

We ate here in March 2015 when in Palm Springs for a short visit. Ate again this January and it is still one of my favorites in the valley. The food was outstanding and the service (Elizabeth) was excellent in every way. I highly recommend this Italian restaurant.

We are locals so this restaurant is excellent for Italian food. The best pesto I've tasted! We have tried several dishes here plus appetizers and salads and the food is always prepared very good. The service has been slow at the several times we've been there. My husband did try a pizza which was good except the crust could have... More

Returned after a years absence and found this facility to be as good as we had remembered. Elizabeth, our waitress, was very entertaining as there was no music on Wednesday. Food was excellent as always!

Trilussa was recommended to us by some locals, who told us the food was excellent and the prices reasonable. They were certainly right on both counts. We started our meal with the small Insalata Mista, which was very large for a side salad. For entrees I ordered Linguine with Fresh Tomatoes and Sliced Sausage and my wife had the Ravioli... More

This was our first visit to Trilussa and it could not have been better. From the prompt and friendly welcome, without a reservation, to the great service and the exceptional food, we couldn't have been more satisfied. The lovely decor added to the ambiance, and the extensive wine list had enough variety to slake any thirst. The warm bread accompanied... More
