When it says garlic in a menu item they mean Large rustic cut slices of garlic. The pasta dishes were cooked perfectly, the servers delightful. The grilled shrimp appetizer was very hard to remove from the shell, but tasty. Patio seating is nice on a...More

We were sat quickly. Restaurant was busy but not packed. Started with the shrimp which was nice and moved on to a nice veal and pasta dish. A couple bottles of wine to top it off. Service was very good. Would defiantly return.

The pasta was fabulous, the medium steak was beyond well done and then the cheese cakes was days old and crusty. We barely ate the steak and spit out the cheese cake. The waitress barely cared but did credit the steak back. This will be...More

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. Everything is homemade with the freshest of ingredients beginning with flavorful antipasti, salads and a variety of soups. 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.
