We had a late lunch at this restaurant. We all had pasta, plus a caprese salad. The caprese came on a very cold plate, and the mozarella and tomatoes were just as cold. Pasta's were ok. The terrace was the best part of our lunch.

Because this place has been here for so long, I assume there must be a following of people who like it, I however have tried it time and time again and don't understand the hype. Decent food but décor feel dated and not "kept up"...More

Nice little cafe with good Italian food. Service was super fast and we got our good very quick. Really enjoyed the bruschetta that came with the bread. The Aglio e olio was good and my risotto was just fine. Had a few interesting sounding specials...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.
