We felt this restaurant was pretty much so-so. Our pasta dishes were greasy and the taste was nothing special. They do have a nice outdoor seating area where you can watch the show pass you by on the downtown sidewalk. Service was ok and we felt the menu was nothing to rave about.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. We did split a veal entree, and their thin shaved beef appetizer (sorry i forget the names!) The waitress was very nice. Atmosphere in the restaurant was really nice and cozy. you have to go out and around the building to the restroom though. :)

Managed to get seated quickly, water and bread/olive oil arrived quickly. Then after a while I had to ask for a waiter, when he arrived he was excellent but no apology for being ignored. We had mozzarella to start, I had gnocchi and my wife had tagliatelle crustacean, both were good but arrived a little too fast for my liking.... More

We dropped in to this fun trattoria on South Palm Canyon last Tuesday night for a bite of dinner. Lots of atmosphere here, and despite the cool weather last week, people were still eating outside under gas lamps. We chose a table inside as there was a birthday party happening here for a large Italian family, so a lively ambiance.... More

We were there on night of villagefest and even though the place was very busy the staff were very attentive. The food was amazing!

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.
