Warm, cosy atmosphere. Live music, great Italian food.

We came here on a Friday evening with our two children. Loved the cushioned seating (children were fighting for those seats!) ambient lighting, helpful friendly staff, chilled music. The menu gave a great variety to choose from, without having too much on it! Kids had burger sliders and spaghetti... read more

Very nice Italian food with a great ambiance. The food may be expensive but great and they have indoor and outdoor seating. If you like the festive atmosphere, sit outside. The staff is very easy to talk to ans knowledgeable.

Had a super meal; caesar salad, chicken marsala, with a substitution of pasta with alfredo sauce on the side. Very tasty and garlicky, just the way caesar salad and alfredo sauce should be. Service was good and we were seated immediately. Too full for dessert, but from the look of what others in the restaurant were having, they looked divine!

Our meal was ok. If our dinner had been around $10-12, no problem, but they were around $20. Not worth it! I had the carbonara, add chicken. The chicken didn't seem like a quality breast. It came presliced and was a bit mushy. My husband had the chicken parmigiana. He thought it was ok but sauce lacked a memorable flavor.... More

Our second visit here. We went back because we really liked them last year. So the expectations were set high. This year was good, but sevices was slow. Apparently they had many groups which had backed up the kitchen. We finally got our entrée after 1 hr. Admittedly we did have one course of soup before that, but it took... More

The food was delicious, the warm bread and olive tapenade was awesome. The waitress spilled Sangria on our table and splashed it on us as well. She just covered the spill with a napkin instead of changing the tablecloth. We also received no compensation but she was very apologetic.

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 a starter), and we didn't even... 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.
