the Capri Italian Restaurant is located inside of a hotel/spa so don't look for a sign on the building. After circling the parking lot we figured that one out.

When we first arrived for dinner there was no one at the host stand as we approached. There was a young man in the other restaurant, sitting eating ice cream , and he looked at us but didn't acknowledge our party. After standing there for some time a woman came out and sat us. She was incredibly friendly and after... More

Once upon a time Capri was an institution back in the day. This family owned Italian steak house was known for their abundant delicious steaks, sea food and pasta. Then one day the greedy land lord raised the rent and they went out of business......too bad they didn't buy the property years ago. Most well known little holes in the... More

The five of us went to lunch here and everyone liked their meal. The prices were very reasonable( I don't think anyone's cost over $10). Don't be in any hurry though, since it took awhile to be served. We walked around the pool area while we waited to check out the numerous spas and pool. Very old school Palm Springs... More

Not that impressed with the food, but the service was very good. My food was bland, sauce was not seasoned at all. Nice atmospher, a little cold inside the resturant. Our server tried very hard to please our group,

One diner near us told us she always brings a jacket because it is always COLD! No one had access to thermostat. Someone finally was able to adjust but it was only for 10 minutes and then back to the cold arctic freeze. I was tempted to go to my car and get a blanket. Everyone in the restaurant agreed... More

We come here often in the evening for dinner, and the filet mignon is delicious. Lunchtime has a very lovely menu as well and this fish is delicious, The prices for both lunch and dinner's are extremely reasonable and we've always been very very happy....

Our food was pretty bland. Sauces were too thin and runny. The breadsticks were yummy. But Olive Garden might be better 😞

Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy our authentic pasta with homemade sauce. Capri is the best place in Greater Palm Springs to get great Italian food at reasonable prices. There's nothing like experiencing pizza or pasta in a quaint local village -- served with some wine or beer and bruschetta. Though if you want to... More

I feel sorry for this place. Our waiter Juan was good. The food wasn't bad, but the overall experience was awful. The staff stared at us while we waited and waited for a table- the place was empty. The hostess was rude, and actually hostile to us. They are understaffed, and it needs a lot of help. Manager- please take... More

Thanks for your feedback. Your comments were reviewed by management and it sounds like the food and the server were well received, but we are concerned that you weren't greeted properly, and first impressions are everything.

I have eaten lunch here a few times after massage/spa treatments. I had dinner there recently and it was also very good. The prices are reasonable and food has been consistently good. Nice place to dine on outside patio (if it's not too hot). I would eat here again when at Miracle Springs.
