The restaurant is excellent. Nice atmosphere. Sal, the General Manager< is terrific. He has a very well trained staff. Rene was our server. The food is great and it is creative. They have absolutely no problem with special requests. Great spot, either indoor or outdoors. In the heart of Palm Springs

I happened upon Sammy G's during a Christmas trip to Palm Springs. I had my little Puggle with me and he was welcomed right away by the hostess and server to dine with us on the patio, so that's where we sat. The patio, by they way, is somewhat shaded with umbrellas but also has heaters, so it's great any... More

My wife and I were in Palm Springs with our cousins and we decided to go to Sammy G's Tuscan Grill for a nice Italian dinner. I am in a wheelchair so I was concerned with access. There were no issues. They sat us on the patio had some heaters going which kept us comfortable. We ordered some wine which... More

Beautiful location, great ambiance. However, the food was lackluster. I had the gnocchi, and the serving was far too big. The gnocchi was certainly not the best I'd ever had, and the sauces (I did a half and half of their tomato/ basil pesto) were just okay. I love good italian food, but saldy I felt this was more quantity... More

This is an exceptional restaurant. Waitress lacy deserves top raves for her job. Initially we thought she was a bit "business-like", but then when she noticed my wife struggling with the menu, she took over. She recommended a dish for my wife with all the accompaniments she thought would go well, when I told her I wanted veal, she recommended... More

We loved sitting in the outdoor garden area of Sammy G's and our dinner was truly excellent. I had just about the freshest salad I've had in a long time. The only for the lack of 5 stars is that the timing of getting a bottle of wine vis a vis the rest of the meal was really off. This... More

Stopped by with craving for Italian and decided on their basic Spaghetti and Homemade Meatballs, got prompt service in a pleasant atmosphere and reasonable prices. The meal was HUGE and very good pasta/marinara sauce and meatballs. I tried but just couldn't finish it all. I'll be back to try additional items.

This Italian restaurant has a perfect balance of elegance and practicality. The ambience is relaxing and in good taste. The food is delicious, including very flavorful salads. Wonderful service from Sergio. At the end of lunch, we were served Amaretto and biscotti. What a treat and a surprise.

Went to have some fun and listen to some great music by the Ebarro Brothers. This place is fun to get up and dance to.

This was our first visit to this Tuscan Restaurant in Palm Springs. It was Saturday night and we had not made a reservation. Little did we know that it was the weekend of the Gay pride parade and there were many visitors for the event. The accommodated us in a lovely booth and we were thrilled. The decor was delightful...
