My wife and I had a nice relaxing lunch in the shade after attending an art fair across the street. We only had panini sandwiches and side salad, but the food and the service was very good.

The cocktails have been made perfect. The Ceasar salad crisp and fresh. The service was very friendly. The pasta was not good - overcooked and not up to the name of the restaurant

Being on a low-sodium medical regimen, I appreciated the willingness of the kitchen and the kindness of the wait staff to accommodate my request for veal with lemon sauce and potatoes and veggies that were seasoned and tasty but fit my diet. This was all delivered relatively quickly given the crowded dining room. Walked in without a reservation and we... More

We stopped here after attending an art fai across the street and because the menu looked good. After being seated it took a little while for our order to be taken and so we ordered everything at one time. The chicken salad had paper thin portions of chicken, the lettuce was not crisp and and the dressing was far too... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff as a good Italian place, so we went with high expectations. Unfortunately, our experience was not great. Things started out well, with some fresh bread and served with a nice tomato/garlic mixture. Our antipasti--a salad with Belgian endive, arugula, and radicchio, and a caprese salad--were quite nice. Things deteriorated after that. Our... More

WE had made a reservation and confirmed by phone. Got there and the guy at the front said he didn't have the rez. Instead of trying to accomodate us, he got into an argument with my wife and basically told us too bad see you later. A server who was standing there overheard the discussion and seated us at a...

Came here years ago when we lived here, but tonight we had even a better meal than before. We share the Caesar salad and then the Scallipno Marsala both of which were delicious. This is a delightful restaurant at which we ate outside under the heat lamps.

Al Dente in Palm Springs is by far the favorite restaurant for my wife and I. We have been there about 10 times in the past three years and can honestly say that we have never had anything close to a bad meal! All of the Italian dishes are cooked to order and it tastes like you're eating food directly... More
