“Best Italian in town, so what???”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This restaurant was once a classic and best in town. Owners and location changed, chef was replaced and most of the changes have been detrimental. The staff was courteous and helpful, the wine inexpensive and drinkable. But the food was poorly prepared, the lettuce not fresh in the salad, and the restaurant was virtually empty at "rush hour" on a recent Saturday night. No longer worth the 1/2 hour drive from Palm Springs.
