“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is our favorite Italian restaurant in Palm Desert. Very classic old east coast style restaurant with great menu and food. The service is old school and excellent. Great piano bar with excellent cocktails.

“Above and beyond”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Had a good rating so we went for somehting new. Here is what set thls place apart from so many others; we go to a very high end italian restaurant in La Jolla often but they have dumbed down their menu so i can no longer get one of my favorite desserts because it is not " in demand any more". Castelli's did not have it on the menu either, but when i mentioned it, they had the chef make it on the spot for me. THAT is my definition of good food and great service.

“Good food nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We had dinner here mid-week and walked in without a reservation. Luckily it was early and we were seated. This place gets busy so a reservation is a good idea. It's busy because of the great food, and attentive service. It's a bit pricey but worth it. We started with the antipasto for two. I had a rack of lamb with risoto and veggies. My wife had lobster ravioli. All excellent.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

The food and service were great. We had four different entrees and all of us were extremely pleased. They were large portions so we got to enjoy the food again the next day.
