great pizza and typical Italian food. Perhaps the only disadvantage was the outdoor seating which is not ideal for lunch in the summer

I was exhausted, sweaty and dirty, but I was treated really well and enjoyed a delicious dinner at the bar. It was a very hot night, and the bar was hotter than the outdoor seating due to the fact that there were no misters or fans reaching the bar area, but it was still a great place to eat and... More

I really want to like this place. Unfortunately, I've experienced bad service both times I've gone. The food is really wonderful, fresh and delicious flavors and the location is terrific. Very pretty and relaxing. However, they really need to get their act together service-wise. Our waitress took a while to come to our table and throughout the evening it was... More

The pizza and desert at this place was super great. The staff is also excellent, and it is in a central location with beautiful features. All in all I would love to return to Birba!

My sister and I had dinner at Birba on a Wednesday night. The venue is outdoors with a beautiful garden courtyard. The mist keeps you cool on a hot night! The service was great, attentive and enthusiastic. The Italian Greyhound cocktail was the perfect refreshing way to start the evening. The calamari starter is delicious. It has whole calamari, so...

All of the seating at Birba is outside--not a problem in Palm Springs, where it hardly ever rains. There were four in our party. We all ordered pizzas and salads, having been told by friends that Birba is best at pizzas. Well, everyone agreed that the pizzas were OK but not outstanding and that the salads were likewise. The Brussels... More

Been a customer since they opened, and found the food creative and tasty! No more! Last two visits, probably my last. Previous, sent back roast chicken...no seasoning, boring presentation....(Who is this chef.?) Recent visit settled for Pizza...supposedly their specialty. Mushroom and mozzerella.. again, bland and uninspired. (Chef can't be Italian.....most flavorless, uninspired pizza, ever!) (Go to Bill's for pizza, instead.... More

The seating is outside and would be a nice ambience but the tables are to close and I was backed into and another in my group has his foot stepped on. The Italian seaside apps are heavy on the potatoes and the kale salad though tasty was tough. No issues with the meatballs though bread should be served due to... More
