Been twice. First time was with a large group and service was slow and poor, and food mediocre. But since everyone has rated it highly,I gave it another chance, but was equally disappointed. The food was not very good, and way overpriced. There won't be a third time for me.

... but the food's just not very good. You go in, hear the little combo in the corner, see the nice banquettes, the big windows - and well, you are prepared to be happy. And then they bring the food. I have had three meals here now - this is the first review because I kept hoping things would improve.... More

The menu items that the waiter recommended were excellent. That wait staff was continually observant of our needs. Were we a party of four with two of us recently married. The other couple bought champagne for the table and the waiter asked why. Upon learning that it was for our marriage he told the singer so we were shortly serenaded.... More

We have passed the place by so many times, as a local, and never tried it. Last night, we did, and what a big wonderful surprise. Wonderful and attentive staff, from the moment you walk in to the end. We were greeted with a vocalist right at the entrance, Lively conversations, but not to intrusive as tables are not jammed...

This is just a beautiful restaurant with lots of character, an older couple singing great old tunes and wonderful service. The wait staff was right on with anything and everything. The food is beautifully served but misses a little of the oomph expected. Our evening may have had just an off night for the chef. They also serve small snifters... More

First night in town, never been here before. Asked a couple of folks on the street if there was a decent restaurant nearby. Young man said go to Trilussa and you won't be disappointed. It was only 2 blocks away too. He was so right! Thought we were dressed way too casual when we saw the decor and white tablecloths,... More

This is the 'sister' restaurant of Sammy G's in downtown Palm Springs. Food is great, service is super, and the atmosphere is almost fancy for Cathedral City!!
