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

Nice restaurant located right on Palm Canyon in downtown Palm Springs. Excellent menu with many authentic Italian dishes. Enjoyed dinner and cocktails/wine at the bar and received excellent service from the owner (originally from Sicily). Would definitely recommend Kalura over many other Italian options in Palm Springs, as you'll experience a much more authentic Italian experience than many other "chain"... More

The food was just OK. Overall, our pasta plates were very heavy (lots of cream and too many ingredients). Pastas were over-cooked (certainly not al dente). Tiramisu was good. Service was fast and friendly and they have a nice terrace. The fact that they do not have restrooms in the restaurant is quite annoying.

We hit this place every time we are in town. But a pre-ride must for the Tour de PS ride. Reservations recommended as it fills up and the wait for walk ups can be long. All of the pasta dishes i have tried are with fresh ingredients and the portions are generous. Nice wine list as well and some good... More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant. I love the chicken parmesan here. It's served with their delicious alfredo pasta. They serve you really fast here because they are used to serving the old theater crowd from when the follies was open. The service is fast and nice folks work here. My fave!
