Description: Al dente Trattoria Toscana - A quaint cucina with a decidedly European atmosphere,has served Palm Springs and an international clientele for over 20 years A cozy patio with twinkling lights is great for people-watching. Everything is homemade with the freshest of ingredients beginning with flavorful antipasti, salads and a variety of soups. Your pasta course features an incredible array of sauces with a Tuscan flair, such as a simple Aglio e Olio - fresh garlic and olive oil - to the succulent Frutti di Mare - calamari, shrimp, clams and mussels in tomato sauce, or Quatro Formaggio, a four-cheese sauce to die for! Entrées are carefully prepared and beautifully presented with nightly specials to augment menu items, such as Pollo Funghi - chicken breast sautéed with fresh mushrooms, Bistecca di Manzo - grilled steak, or Gamberone Griglia - jumbo shrimp on grill.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Been here for lunch and dinner and loved both. I love the patio fir lunch.the tables are set with linen....and the lunch menu reflects the dinner menu but cheaper till 3:00 in the afternoon. I particularly like the veal dishes offered here.

“Bland and Tasteless”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

The bread and tomatoes that they serve before the meal was good, but our dinners were both bland and could have been a frozen meal. (Ordered Risotto Verde and Fettucine Primavera) The chicken tasted like it came from a can. Avoid this place.

“Very good Italian restaurant in the heart of the Springs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Had a very good dinner - excellent, simple menu with very fair prices. Excellent drinks. Wonderful ambience sitting in outdoor terrace (though seating also available indoors). Most especially enjoyable was the fantastic service by friendly and knowledgeable servers. Brothers Anthony and Andrew made it a very special evening.

“Great service, good pasta dishes, heated outside seating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Three of us ate at the Aldente, two salmon/ cognac and one porcini mushroom pastas. We sat outside under a propane heater. We were seated promptly just where we wanted, the bottle of wine was at the table within 10 minutes. Food was well prepared and the servers were very attentive without being obtrusive. With the exception of some of the wines being priced $7 to $10 higher than some of the other local restaurants and the washroms being a little dirty it would be pretty hard to fault the experience.
