Food, portions, prices, taste, and service, too. And, live music in the background. Lovely dining room with comfortable chairs and banquette seating. Patio available in cooler weather. Special was chicken breast with brandy cream sauce and mushrooms and artichokes. String beans and a few small roast potatoes. Both salads were delightful. Breadsticks and warm baguette - no room for desert.... More

Did not go to this restaurant this time around but have been there on two previous occasions and found it being well worth going to; food and service excellent. It is also almost next door to a movie theater that has a great museum in its lobby on Mary Pickford.

Trilussa is worth a visit for some tasty pasta dishes, and a couple of outstanding menu items. Vegetables and seafood are generally frozen, but sauces have merit. One outstanding feature is rack of lamb. The rack offers 6 or more ribs, and is cooked properly pink, tender and juicy. Served with haricot vert and a roasted potato. Excellent. Desserts include...

We went there during the week with our car club & they were very accommodating. There is an excellent choice of entrees & fair pricing for the selections. We had lasagna & a chicken parmesan dish. Both were excellent. Some had dessert & the portions were generous. A nice touch at the end of the meal, we were served a... More

I went here late on a Wednesday night. It was not crowded. The waitress was very nice. I ordered the sausage and peppers as well as the bruschetta. All were great. The restaurant seating is well done. Not too close to others. Overall I thought it was great.

Had dinner here one night while in Palm Springs for a conference and found it to be pretty good. I had the Amaritta for a drink and really liked it (it's like an Amaretto stone sour). We had the bruschetta for an appetizer and it was quite good - included fresh cubes of mozzarella. For dinner, I tried the beef... More

1st choice was closed. My beef and peppers with fettuccine was delicious and my leftovers just as good the next day. My companion's pasta primavera was also very good, but his Caesar salad was not!

In the cooler months the patio is perfect for outside dining. With live music inside in the evenings that makes for a tough decision. This is locally owned and you are treated like family. The food is great, service fantastic, and cocktails are generous. We love this place.

We were staying at the Lawrence Welk resort & looking for a nearby restaurant. We were also looking for music venues. Trilussa met these criteria but more... The Italian food was excellent. We visited twice & were pleased with our choices. I was pleased to see cioppino on the menu & ordered it. Nice! Service was great both times. Music... More

Only my second visit here after a disastrous visit some years ago. Service and menu ok but a little pricey for pre cooked food. Everything very salty - order was wrong and some food inedible. Just like TRIO the whole dinning experience take less than 1 hour ..... A little rushed. Over all too expensive, too fast and average food... More
