Aqua Pazza, one of the most popular in Rancho Mirage has closed now. The owners own and are directing their attention to the most popular restaurant in Palm Springs CA. That would be LuLu's o Palm Canyon Drive downtown. Try it, you'll love it.

I just don't see what all the fuss is about. The food is average (at best). It amazes me that it stays in business. It's a large restaurant in a retail plaza. Their overhead must be astronomical.

This place closed right before Christmas, 2014. No one really knows why, except perhaps the owner, who also owns LULU in downtown Palm Springs, wanted to direct his financial resources to the latter, which has had phenomenal success. Anyway, the last supper was still good. Many loyal patrons were shocked to hear that this excellent restaurant had to close. 😱... More

I brought my 2 friends from the UK who were visiting to the restaurant on a Sunday evening. It was lovely to sit outside under heaters and share the evening with them. We chose the 19.99 prix fix menu which was perfect for us. Pick soup or salad, one of 8 main courses and one of 3 or 4 desserts.... More

We are locals and have been going to Acqua Pazza for years! Always great food, wonderful atmosphere and great for either casual or special occasions. Wonderful outdoor seating area and a GREAT gluten free menu, as well! The hostess Lyn is adorable and always friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend this restaurant located in The River!

Although this restaurant is part of an outdoor mall, the location is beautiful.....having lunch outdoors overlooking the man made lake with the mountains as background really reminded us that we were on vacation and not in cold New York City! The food was delicious and the service very attentive as well.

We were a party of 6 dining at this very nice restaurant. Between 3 - 5 p.m. they offer a 3 course dinner for $16.99. The food is delicious and beautifully served. The service was spot on. We ate on their very spacious outdoor patio. Parts of the patio have glass walls partioning off some of the tables. Very nice... More

We three girls enjoyed a lovely, delicious lunch with very nice service. Between the three of us, we sampled the santa fe chicken sandwich, the turkey burger and a curry chicken salad. The patio is refreshing. I recommend this for a casual lunch with really good food. One of my friends is local and this is her favorite spot for... More

We intended to enjoy a couple of drinks, but the food looked so good we ordered a couple of pizzas. The fresh bread is outstanding! Nice, casual spot.
