Large & varied selection of pastas, good-sized portions at reasonable prices. This is becoming my go-to for Italian downtown.

Shared a nice evening with my husband the night of the Palm Springs Christmas parade. While very busy, the restaurant staff was very accommodating and service excellent from an entire team. The bread was so good, fresh, warm, the appy/drinks prompt, our meals tasted superb, with fresh herbs and the perfect amount of seasoning so that you could actually taste... More

My wife and I stopped at the Kalura Trattoria Italiana on a whim while looking for a dinner spot. We were greeted by friendly staff that fit us in without a reservation on a relatively busy night. We sat on their cozy outdoor patio with a good view of the street action. The server was fantastic and the meal was... More

Nice restaurant in the middle of downtown PS. Nice menu with a large selection of traditional Italian food. Food was well prepared and tasty, good sized portions. Service was good with the place being full of customers. No complaints.

Ravioli Al Formaggio was fine, not memorable. My dinner guest found the Tortelloni Alla Panna (sans ham) to be delicious. The Mozzarella In Carrozza was a simple tasty fried cheese but not the same as the exceptional dish served by Matchbox down the street. It is open air and we got in easily. Dog friendly patios are always a plus.

Authentic Italian cuisine, professionally served in a great location... In my opinion this is a must visit eatery when in Palm Springs.. Especially on a Thursday evening (weekly Farmers market) where you can people watch until your hearts content. Highly recommended...

We dined here on a Saturday night. We made a reservation and had no problem getting a table outside. Plenty of people watching from our table. Food - Just okay. Nothing special. Carbonara was not real Carbonara. Too creamy. Chicken parm was okay but sauce tasted institutional. Bread that they bring was disappointing. Why would you not serve a crusty... More

A group of 3 were here for very early dinner. I'm a pretty picky eater, so ordered something from the menu with a twist. They were happy to twist it for me, looking askance, but they did it. I know, imagine Italian without tomatoes! The result was fabulous, flavors were very good, garlic and onion, olive oil. Just the way... More

It's a beautiful October evening. The Zoombie Parade is happening. We saw the Kalura Trattoria...it looked very cool. And it was. Excellent service...reasonable prices....delicious food. Sit inside or outside....it's all good.

I was dying for a good pasta and was excited to have a great table on the patio overlooking all the passers by at Village Fest. We took our server's recommendations and ordered the two pastas he recommended - the Rigatoni Pino and the Pappardelle del Cacciatore. The sauce on the Pappardelle was bland and not a rich cream sauce... More
