I love their shrimp penne in their arrabbiata sauce. It isn't always on menu but they can make it. If you like a little spice it's wonderful. It is located right downtown so lots to see and do before or after.

I visited Kalura Trattoria with a friend in April 2014. We sat outside on the patio for our meal which was really beautiful. It wasn't too busy so service was great, and we liked that we could people watch along the main street from the patio! It was a really relaxing experience. The food was delicious and the portions were... More

We sat down for a late dinner here on a weekend trip to Palm Springs. The food was decent, but didn't seem like they used super fresh/quality ingredients. They had outdoor dining, which was nice. It is in a fairly busy area, so lots of good people watching to be had. Our server was friendly and fairly attentive. They don't... More

Walking along Palm Canyon Drive looking for a place to have a meal that the whole family would enjoy, we were attracted to Kalura's due to the menu and the outdoor seating on a beautiful spring evening. Without a reservation and looking quite busy, we were surprised that they were able to seat us so quickly. Our orders were taken... More

We had the Veggitaria Pizza - the squash and mushrooms were delicious! But the best part of the meal was the house made spaghetti and meatballs. Really some of the best pasta I've had in a restaurant and the meatballs were superb! The service is friendly and the outside patio is very nice. They have an extensive menu with lots... More

Great dinner out with the family this evening. Our experience started off a little rough with the hostess but quickly turned around by our outgoing server and his support staff. Modifications to our meals were made without issue and they were very helpful with child friendly choices. The pizza and veal parmigiana were excellent. A must try and great value... More

We love Italian food. We are Canadians with a flair for the bright lights, city nights. We were greeted by a friendly man who later became our server. Love love love this guy. He was a amazing server. He even walked my wife to the restrooms( they are a little walk away sorta like a out house) I had the... More

This is a restaurant that we frequent every year when vacationing in a Palm Springs. They have a great selection and the food is always very good. Their wine prices are very reasonable. Nice patio that is good for people watching.

The food in this place is not bad and the prices are fair. It's just a shame that the service (except for the guys serving out the food) is terrible. For example, our food arrived faster than we got our drinks. And I don't mean the house bread but the food we actually ordered.

Had a lot of very good meal experiences in SoCal but our favorite was here. It was a busy spot with the Follies on next door but our server was gracious and efficient. Tons of choices, we started by sharing a delightful Caesar salad, perfectly dressed and topped with fresh shaved parmesan. We then shared two pasta dishes, a penne... More
