Great ravioli

Just got back from dinner at Sammy G's. Nice ambience, and good Italian food. Warm and crispy and soft bread arrived first at the table, with a tasty black olive tapenade. Two of us shared the calamari with spicy tomato sauce as a starter - crispy, juicy and delicious! The portion was huge (for... read more

Make a reservation..go for dinner and listen to the music in the bar. The food is good and a little expensive but makes for a great evening.

The service was very good, and the food ok. My risotto was not real Italian risotto, and taste was more about spices than the quality of the ingredients. So overall an average experience, not memorable - but certainly not bad if you want a decent bite to eat in Palm Springs.

Although smack dab in the middle of the action of Palm Springs, this place was a present surprise. Tuscan Risotto was fabulous and service was superb, nothing bad to say about this place.

Cabana Style booth was table of choice. cool ambiance. I had the Chicken Carbonara. Linguine noodles with two moist chicken breasts in a light cream sauce. I enjoyed my meal. The adjacent club was vibrant with funky music. It was nice that it was not over crowded with summer tourist.

The atmosphere was great, but the presentation and taste of the food was not the best. We had the chk parm and linguine Carbonara with chicken. For a $20 pasta dish, we expect deliciousness. It fell short.

We arrived here on a Wednesday evening and had no trouble getting a table, no reservation made, none needed. I suspect this is different on weekends as even on a Wednesday there were quite a lot of people eating. We had the option of sitting inside or outside and chose to sit out near the fountain. Lovely ambience and atmosphere.... More

What a wonderful resturant! Great food, wonderful service, realxixng ambiance. We were there in June, so it was pretty slow, but it was a totally great experience. The table around the side of the resturant had really big pillows to sink into and relax. The staff was attentive but didn't try to make you eat fast. The food was some... More

Great food, reasonable prices, wonderful atmosphere, live music at a volume that you can still converse over, attentive service, good wine list... can't say enough about this place. The menu prices are well below other restaurants in the area, but this place is GREAT.

First, as others have said, the hostess needs a refresher course on hospitality. We had a reservation and when we arrived she took us inside. I had requested a table outside and there were several available. My husband was okay with being inside, but the courtyard and fountain are so pleasant that I went back outside and said we wanted...
