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

Best Italian we had in Palm Springs! I had the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was just excellent. My husband had his choice of pasta in the Four Cheese Sauce (he chose penne) which was also very good. We have been looking for this good of pasta for awhile and were not as satisfied with other restaurants we tried. This was... More

The Food was great. Very tasty. If you like Italian food, this is a great place to eat. Good sized portions. Very filling. Prices are average for this type of restaurant.

Our third night in palm springs and the best meal yet. Service was quick and efficient without being intrusive. Complimentary bruchetta while you wait for your dinner to be cooked. Water refills after every mouthful. Food was pretty quick arriving and was very hot. Wine was an average price for palm springs. Would definitely recommend anyone to eat here.

The pasta was excellent, my friend thought it was heavy on garlic like other reviewers where as I could hardly taste the garlic. (They may not be used to garlic). The service was excellent! Don't miss out on dessert. A good Canoli is hard to find anymore, the waiter said it was homemade and it did taste like heaven.

Hands down the service is amazing, but the food lacks consistency, and is highly saturated in oil. The starter, I had the Caprese and that saved my meal and this review. The entree was a disaster, the Porcini angel hair, was an oil and mushroom mess, when the food runner delivered, the oil slopped over the plate on to the... More

We make it a point of coming back to Aldente each time we visit Palm Springs, and we are never disappointed. We were celebrating a birthday and could not have been happier. Being a seafood nut, I had to start with the Cacciucco; mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari in a tomato broth..it was really excellent and could have had another... More

We were happy to be seated outside on the patio and were immediately served the tomatoes (bruschetta) with fresh bread basket.. We both ordered the minestrone which was delicious and then had a pasta...I the vongole with spaghetti and he... More
