“Great food, service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

A family joint you always feel good to go to, and want to come back to. It's the attention to details, the pasta is always cooked perfectly, the veal oh so tender, and the service perfect.

“Frank Sinatra's favorite?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

I was expecting more based on it's reputation. Growing up Italian I was disappointed with the selection and the preparation. The restaurant was not at all busy and has no personality.

“Great for groups and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Was on a guy's golf trip and they accommodated 16 of us in our own room (smart of them). They service that we received was superb! Very attentive and friendly. I had the veal saltimbocca, which was very good. Several of us shared wine, which was reasonably priced for what we got. For dessert, I had a tiramisu which was one of the best that I ever had! All of the guys raved about their meals. One of the best Italian restaurants that I have ever been to. We have put this on our go to places in Palm Springs.

“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Great food, good service. Nostalgic. Lots of locals. You also know the food is good when you witness someone in another restaurant's uniform pick up take out.
Family friendly; our seven year old son dined with us and we felt completely comfortable. Ordered the veal special and it was excellent.
