3 of us arrived at about 7pm on a Monday night. Only one table left! We had drinks and ordered our food, all in a timely fashion. Drinks were served right away, food was not far behind. Everything tasted amazing. We especially love the Ravioli Fungi, and the Bellisimo Bellini! Try the tiramisu! Great service, we will definitely be back!

Ate at Mama Gina's twice during our week long stay in Palm Springs. We ate in the more casual bar, which was packed, even in the off season of August. Everything we sampled was fresh and perfect for sharing. The spaghetti with pesto was our favorite with the chicken Parmesan a close second. The wine list was not extensive but was reasonably priced. We had the same waitress both times. She was friendly and helpful with suggestions and even remembered everything we ordered during our first visit. Will definitely return.

Mamma Gina has a great bar bites menu allowing regulars and the guests who get there in time to enjoy a range of italian classics at very reasonable prices. A good wine list and classic italian atmosphere and friendly service.

A great restaurant for those who love high quality Italian food. Great service by long-term professional staff. Prices are high but food is worth it. Great value at the bar during happy hour with reduced food and drink prices.
