We wanted to eat "dunch" after a movie at the International Film Festival and before the Alabama- Clemson game. Three in the afternoon with no one else wanting to eat Italian yet. The mixed green salad was a wonderful mix of greens with a very flavorful dressing. Then we both had the seafood pasta (frutti de mare) which was delicious!... More

We eat at Kalura Trattoria every time we spend a week in Palm Springs. The service is always excellent and more than willing to explain the different meals. My wife a I shared a meal of Penne, and it was more than enough for us, along with the premeal bread plate. We have never had a disappointing experience at this... More

The place is rather small, but also cosy. We sat at a table outside which was nicely heated. We orderend 2 times Lasagne & 1 spaghetti bolognaise. Unfortunatly one of the lasagne was almost cold. They also were served very fast after we ordered... too fast? The dinner was OK, but I don't think I would come here again

I've lived in the area for 15 months and have been to Kalura 10 times already. Everything about this restaurant screams quality! They make much of their own pasta, which is delicious, so you don't even need to think about what to order. From their seafood entrees to basic pasta, you really can't go wrong.

Great lunch! Maybe we'll do dinner next time! The pollo panini hit the spot for a mid-day meal. A great shopping break sitting on the patio and enjoying the tasty toasted bread and dipping oils.

Looking for a Mexican restaurant but it was closed and got seated immediately. Had great cocktails and fried calamari---NOT rubbery, tender and crispy with perfect sauce. We shared homemade gnocchi w/vodka sauce and penne pollo pesto. Both were perfect and service excellent. Great find!

The food was good, as was the service, and the prices were reasonable. So why only 3 stars? First, the place was so incredibly noisy that it was impossible to have a conversation or even hear the wait staff. Even after the manager turned down the music, it was still too loud in the main room simply because the room... More

Went for appetizers and a drink during lunch. Had deep fried mozzarella and Bruschetta. Was less than stellar - sauce tasted more mexican flair than italian, and bruschetta was french bread with chopped tomatoes on top. Little flavor. Will be fair and try again for main course.... Did have to grab own place settings, but again, server was nice -... More
