This restaurant is really convenient for those closer to the 10, especially Old Las Palmas (OLP). The wait staff were timely and polite, yet friendly. We arrived about 8:30 pm on a Wednesday, and yet there was a nice mix of folks (moms & kids, LGBT couples, younger groups), it was really nice. The drinks were pricey and seemed watered... More

We had a really nice pizza (good, crispy crust), nice drinks, young fun atmosphere. It was a little too crowded for the nice leisurely dinner I was seeking (felt more club like than restaurant) but overall a good dining experience.

This really pleasant outdoor restaurant is really pleasant, even during 100 + summer days. Pizza is very good. Tiramisu was excellent. Wine was good but served in a really tiny plain glass – even more boring than the water glass. Just seemed odd. Definitely recommend this place when you are in Palm Springs.

This place was so good. The patio is beautiful and the food was awesome. Love the kale salad and the cauliflower appetizer. All the pizzas were great.

Table was almost out the restaurant, in an opening in the hedge and so people were frequently walking by the table. The band, while not playing, were also sitting and socialising very close by, with people coming up to talk to them. We felt out on a limb. We ordered the roast cauliflower starter, which was inedible: first, it was... More

We stumbled upon Birba while out one night in Palm Springs and decided to have dinner. 2 of us ordered pizza & one ordered lasagna. All of the food was excellent and priced right. The service was sub -par which is my only complaint. There was live music the night we were there, which was very enjoyable! I'd highly recommend... More

Great atmosphere and food for anyone visiting or living in the Palm Springs, CA area. One will enjoy music (weekends) from local bands, savory foods, and fabulous cocktails, to include Hello Nancy - my favorite! Enjoy, as you will not be disappointed!

Having visited Palm Springs I did not try Birba before. I wish I had done this earlier. It's a fun place with a nice patio that had live music on the night I was there. I loved their pizza and pannacotta. If you want to have a quiet dinner this place might not be your cup of tea with the... More

My partner and I stopped into Birba for an after dinner cocktail. We sat down at the bar and were greeted by Jill. Such a fun and energetic bar tender. We had a couple specialty cocktails all of which were fun and extremely tasty. Birba is a great spot for drinks, getting together with your group and even a fun... More

great italian food, fantastic atmosphere. Can also be a longer wait for something by the fire place but then again its worth the wait since the food is absolutely amazing.
