Very good Trattoria at Plaza Theater downtown

Service slow but ok outside just as sun went down past mountain to west We enjoyed the Salat... read more

My husband and I ate here because the menu and ambiance looked good. I had the lobster ravioli and it was good. He had a penne dish and the pasta was crispy. Yes, crispy! It was basically dried pasta that was not cooked long enough. We also got a cannoli that was just ok. The service was good and our... More

This should have been a much better experience, the restaurant is small and has a nice atmosphere however the service was pretty much non existsant.. Server was not attentive in the slightest and the portion was adequate, food tastes good but lacked a special something. Wouldn't recommend

I don't understand why people say service was bad, well let me tell you. We were seated right away, our waiter brought us ice water right away, he took our order, we stared with appetizers, with in 10 minutes it was at our table. We had fried calamari, and capocio, excellent. After that our meals were next, excellent food, we... More

This place has seen better days. The last two times we were there, we were disappointed in the quality of the food and service. The waiter seemed not to care about serving us, or bringing our wine in a timely manner. The appetizer was mediocre at best and very sloppily presented. The waiter practically threw the bread at the table.... More

The veil was perfect...this is not a chain restaurant and the veil was fresh and I opted for rigatoni n meat sauce instead of the potatoes. Wife got the rigatoni primivera , we will go back there again...

The main dish food came out of kitchen in just minutes - way too fast. There's no way it was made fresh and it didn't taste very fresh. We wanted to stay longer and enjoy quiet evening sipping wine, but the server Isabella rushed us out (!). We were unhappy with the service, so I left small tip. Today I... More

This is a really, really good restaurant with excellent service. Almost a 5/5 but not quite. I have to come again to see if I can give 5. Simple, classy atmosphere where you are greeted by very friendly staff. I think our waiter was Lorenzo who was very accommodating and friendly. We started with a caprese salad which was I'd... More

We were excited to try this spot. We have been coming to Palm Springs for a few years and had this on our list of restraunts to try. We made a reservation on a Wednesday night and were seated promptly at our requested time. The server we got was not at all friendly. We asked three times if she could... More

As a part-time resident (6 months per year) of Palm Springs, I have walked passed Kalura Trattoria on numerous occasions. The restaurant is located in the heart of the busy touristy downtown main street. For the past few years, I would not consider eating at Kalura because it appeared to be a tourist trap. As a full blooded Italian, I... More
