Don't miss Johnny's if you are in Palm springs looking for real Italian. Been around for a long time and great food and service. I like the gnochi.

Very classy place with awesome food and service. We both ordered steak which came with pasta and a salad. The salad was so fresh and the dressing was home made. Our steaks were done perfectly. Nice touch to have pasta instead of potatoes. The service...More
