This was a very nice dinner. We arrived early and sat outside on a perfect Palm Springs evening. It turned out to be great Italian! We started with a classic Caprese salad. We both ordered Spaghetti Bolognese, my companion added sausage to his. It was remarkably good. The sauce was perfectly seasoned and not to thick or thin. The pasta... More

We have been going to Aldente for about 5 years now, but have about given up on it. You never know what you are goiong to get in the form of service. The last time, about two months ago, was terrible. We had to beg to give our order, had to ask for bread, had to ask for the wine... More

Four of us enjoyed a very good experience at Al Dente, with perfectly prepared pasta dishes. I had Porcini mushrooms with penne pasta -- a very tasty preparation served piping hot fresh from the kitchen. I split a Caesar salad which was also fresh, cold and delicious. Portions are substantial. We skipped dessert because we were simply too full. Service... More

My wife & I and friends visited this restaurant prior to a production of Evita at the Palm Canyon theatre. It's very close if you're taking in a play there! Outside & inside seating is available, but even though the weather was great, we chose inside seating because of the traffic noise directly outside. We really enjoyed the food. I... More

Stopped in for lunch, we had our dog with us so we sat on the patio. They even brought him a bowl of water with ice in it. Service and food was excellent. Alfredo fettuccine with chicken the best.

There are numerous places to enjoy pasta but I like this restaurant because it 'feels' Italian. Tables are positioned close together and when the place if full, which it was the night we were there, voices fill the room yet conversation is not a problem and we are hearing impaired. There are tables outside on the patio that provide a... More

We happened upon Aldente walking the area around our hotel and there was a table available on the outdoor patio so we decided to check it out. Turned out to be very reasonably priced and the pasta and bread we enjoyed was obviously home made and very fresh. The service was friendly and quick, which was most appreciated as we... More

Description
Al dente Trattoria Toscana - A quaint cucina with a decidedly European atmosphere,has served Palm Springs and an international clientele for over 20 years A cozy patio with twinkling lights is great for people-watching.

Your pasta course features an incredible array of sauces with a Tuscan flair, such as a simple Aglio e Olio - fresh garlic and olive oil - to the succulent Frutti di Mare - calamari, shrimp, clams and mussels in tomato sauce, or Quatro Formaggio, a four-cheese sauce to die for! Entrées are carefully prepared and beautifully presented with nightly specials to augment menu items, such as Pollo Funghi - chicken breast sautéed with fresh mushrooms, Bistecca di Manzo - grilled steak, or Gamberone Griglia - jumbo shrimp on grill.
