great downtown trattoria

Kalura is located smack-dab in the busiest tourist corridor of downtown Palm Springs, and waits can be long in peak season. But this isn't the usual tourist grub.

If you know good Italian food and appreciate it, then don't go there. It's obvious this place is catering to the passing tourist. The place has the look and ambiance but that's where it ends. It's unfortunate because the owners are three native Italians, but somehow they have figured out that they don't need to sell authenticity to the tourists... More

my two daughters and myself got the mimosas and we shared two wonderful dishes. We did not want to carry around leftovers (which always happens) so the two dishes were more than enough for three people to share.

Wanted outdoor dining, with Wine. We like Italian food so this met our requirements. We ate early enough so we were able to have outdoor seating. Good Chianti wine and food was a good quality. Good place for evening dining especially if you can get outdoor dining. Disclaimer: We spent our 5 days in Palm Spring and only wanted to... More

On an annual visit to Palm Springs I try to visit Kalura for dinner since we have always had great food and service. This year a group of 7 went for dinner and had a poor experience. One couple ordered a salad to split and I had ordered my own salad. Two salads came out and the waiter didn't have... More

... but not spectacular. Food and wine are Italian, and we very much enjoyed our lunch. Service was friendly and efficient. But we did not feel the urge to go back.

By far the best meal in Palm Springs. Delicious menu with beautiful food. Too many great choices to pick from. Huge portions, great pricing and good selection of domestic and italian wines. The staff was super knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The setting was perfect- small and intimate but without being crowded and claustrophobic. I felt like I was in a... More

We sat on the patio so were able to take our dog. The service was fantastic for us and the dog! I had the risotto which was excellent. Will definitely be back before we leave the area.

This place was excellent. Pino was our waiter and couldn't have been better. His wine sugestion only added to the enjoyment of the meal. I had never tried a sangovese before and when I got home went out and bought 4 bottles. My wife had te "SPEK' (type of Italian ham) pizza and couldn't stop saying how enjoyable it was.... More
