Nice little pasta place

Nice little cafe with good Italian food. Service was super fast and we got our good very quick. Really enjoyed the bruschetta that came with the bread. The Aglio e olio was good and my risotto was just fine. Had a few interesting sounding specials as well. Would probably return.

We arrived for lunch and selected food from the lunch menu. The caprese salad was ok, not full of flavour. The ravioli was butter and oily - not rich and creamy as expected. The shrimp carbonara seemed like it was packet pasta, with a bowl of linguine and a few prawns thrown in. I wouldn't recommend it.

So I attempted to make a reservation 2 times. No one called me back after I left a VM so I called back. She took all the information, but when we arrived there was nothing. When I called back she failed to apologize until I made her apologize, and when there was no reservation in the book at the restaurant... More

This was a disappointment for me. All of the employees (from the hostess to the busser) were great. Very attentive, and nice. But the food was so bland, I had to box it up and tell the waitress that I was full because I didn't want to hurt her feelings (knowing that she didn't cook it). I REALLY wanted to... More

I grew up in Palm Springs and this has always been my favorite place to eat Italian food! The restaurant is right on palm canyon and the outdoor seating is amazing. The staff is friendly and professional and the FOOD IS AMAZING! Highly recommend it!

We were a group of 9. Everyone enjoyed the very varied options. Portions are not huge, as they hope that you will have 3-4 courses. This is not your family Italian spot with huge entrees, therefore the price for a satisfying meal is steep. Surprising issue. The bathroom hallway and the back entrance are nasty!!! The ice maker is adjacent... More

Lovely outside seating area, and just what we were craving after 3 days of Mexican food. The pastas are fresh and tasty, the service is attentive and this gem is just a few blocks up the street from busy Palm Canyon Drive. Bravo!
