The idea of Villagio comes from a marriage between time and place; the old neighborhoods of New York City and the abundant plains of California. What California brings to the table figuratively and literally, is its abundance of fresh produce, fresh starts, and the opportunity to reinvent. And so it was with these two places and time in mind that we set out to build a restaurant that would meld the two. With pizza dough made from scratch, hand stretched and cooked in a traditional pizza oven, our proprietary pizza sauce and the freshest of ingredients, Villagio invites you to dig in and enjoy our food, our warmth, and our relaxing ambiance. A place where old world tradition, meets new world freshness.

Pizza with Friends

our first visit to Villagios. It was decent. Service was a little lacking for water refills. The salad was ok. The pizza was pretty good. We could have a conversation and hear each other. Not top of the list, but we would go back!

Took granddaughter and her husband to dinner here. Love this place. We were here the last time we were in Palm Desert in November. Always busy but we seem to get a table quickly. Staff is great and the food is always been good and not expensive. Want pizza in Palm Desert this is the place.

I ate here for lunch with my husband and two children. Despite the restaurant being almost empty, we had to wait a few minutes for them to clean a table. Service after that was slow and inattentive. The four of us split a large pizza. The pizza itself was quite delicious, but the prices and our overall experience left us... More

On our recent trip to Indian Wells for the tennis, we felt like some good Italian food. Checking my trusty Tripadvisor app, we came up with this somewhat out of the way restaurant, but we found it well worth the drive. We started with the Mozzarella Caprese salad and split it for two. It was fantastic and plenty for the... More

If you go here, maybe you should get take out. The pizza was very good but our service was awful. We were fairly well ignored, no refills on water, different servers when they did come, total chaos. We were there on a Sunday evening at 8 pm. We waited 15 minutes to sit and there were empty tables, maybe too... More

We took our son and grandkids to Villagio because we had always enjoyed it in the past. visit was different. First, our pizza order was messed up. The large pizza we ordered wash small pizza when served. The waitress apologized and left the small pizza as an appetizer. It was tasty, but overlooked. Fifteen minutes later our large pizza was...

At the Corner of Cook & Frank Sinatra you will find Villagio’s. Some of the best Italian food in the whole valley.

We were there on a week night and they were incredibly busy. I thought the pizza was good (fresh ingredients), but not extraordinary. My sister's gnocci had some pieces that were doughy/undercooked, although she said the overall flavor was good. Service was slow and somewhat spotty. I would like to try this place again, maybe for lunch or something, when... More
