I liked my gnocchi that I ordered. It was light and it was not swimming in pesto. It was a nice meal but nothing terribly memorable or special. The service was okay and didn't have to wait long. The location is good and nice to sit outside. It was a romantic setting.

This is one of the restaurants we "LOVE" to go to. They have (and it's just my opinion) the best pizza around... And of course "GREAT" pastas and wines as it's a true Italian restaurant. The staff are very friendly and sitting outside is fun as you can do some people watching and quiet enough that you can have a... More

We ordered gnocchi, asking the waiter to split the $15 entree. He kindly let us each order a sauce. The food came with half of the order on one plate and a large bowl of one of the sauces. Later, an empty plate and another large bowl of the second sauce arrived. We were told that the twenty or so... More

The service was excellent, the restaurant was quiet and elegant. I highly recommend the risotto, and a very good cabernet (Murphy-Goode) was recommended by our waiter.

Having arrived in Palm Springs on Christmas Day, we went searching along Palm Canyon for an open restaurant for late lunch/early dinner. Found this place, looked at their posted menu, and thought it sounded good to us. The sun had just disappeared behind the mountains which are immediately to the west of downtown, and we didn't mind being seated in... More

Food was good but not great. A very small restaurant which fills up fast. Unfortunately too cold to enjoy the outside patio. The service was very good and prices were reasonable. Alittle strange was the restroom not located in the building but outside the courtyard which required getting a key from the hostess. Just didn't make the overall experience the... More

Odd service because some of had salad and when the pasta's came to the table, the uneaten salads were whisked away from under us. So strange! I had the pappardelli with the vodka tomato basil sauce and mozzarella chunks. It was delish. The eggplant ravioli was not very good and had an odd peppery taste... Probably will not return as...

This was my second visit here and was as good as I remembered. Tilappia in lemon caper sauce was on special and it came with angel hair pasta with olive oil, basil, garlic and fresh tomato. Outstanding! My hubby had chicken pasta in a mushroom, garlic creme sauce. Warm bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar comes as you are... More

Journeyman Italian. Lots of pastas and mead dishes, just not exciting. The terrace is pleasant and the service is serviceable. It seemed a little pricey for the quality.

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