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!!

Elegant martinis, superb service, and an excellent eggplant parmegiana, which the chef will accommodate with side vegetables instead of pasta for those who watch carbs. The meatballs are also superb.

We have visited this restaurant seven or eight times in the last couple of months. The place is lovely and the food is tasteful. On each visit I try a different dish. There is a wide disparity of portion size. An excellent Chicken Parm covered the plate. Several pasta dishes were quite generous. A seafood pasta had a good serving... More
