Weeknight dining for us. Fixed price menu wonderful. Great service on outdoor patio. Petite filet, done as ordered. Chicken Marsala very good. This place is underrated. Of course more folks may then come and discover this excellent secret in downtown Palm Springs! A bit more pricey than Lulu's, but way better food.

Not downtown, but close. Stopped in for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The tourist season had not yet begun so there were very few people in the restaurant. Apparently, this was one of Frank Sinatra's hang outs years ago. A couple of patrons and the hostess provided stories while we perused the menu and ordered drinks. We chose the 3 course dinner and were very pleased. The food and service were excellent - the portion sizes were perfect. Comparing the regular menu items with the 3 course special showed that for about half the price you get a great meal and excellent service.

Up street from the busy downtown restaurant row, Riccio's offers a quiet, elegant patio for a relaxed dining experience.
The 3-course fixed price meal is more expensive than at 'downtown' restaurants but the service is good as is the food quality.

This is such a great location. Still on Palm Canyon Drive but not in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Great patio to enjoy watching everything. The inside restaurant is cozy but spaced out. they do not skimp on the helpings here. The staff is always there for you without being in your face. The homemade bread to start with comes with a really tasty olive marinara dipping sauce. We started with the Herb dusted calamari which was a large portion great for sharing and was very tender and came with marinara sauce. The main entre, we had the paella which was again another huge portion, full of large shrimp,mussels,clams,chorizo sausage,whitefish,saffron rice. This was really well cooked and very tasty. The veal marsala was tender with a great sauce that I just wanted to drink up. They do not skimp on the fantastic mushrooms and veggies along with rosemary potatoes. To finish, of course we wanted to check out the dessert tray with all their wonderful homemade goodies. We took the cannoli which was 2 smaller size with fantastic ricotta filling with a hint of orange and chocolate. Also tried the huge piece of chocolate cake. This is a winner in Palm Springs. Great staff , very attentive, very nice atmosphere. Nice bar with a romantic patio and a very nice menu for everyone..

We have had dinner here twice now, and both times the experience was exceptional. The owner/chef Danny came out to greet us and is a super friendly guy. The food was delicious and the service was great. Beautiful little place, nice patio.
