Delicious Italian FoodThis was our last night in Palm Desert & we chose the restaurant based on great reviews. We were totally pleased. Appetizers were delightful: crab cakes with an unusual combination of peppers in the sauce and bruschetta. The waitress helped us choose our entrees and our party of 4 loved each one including salmon and various pastas. Our bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon was amazing: smooth, velvety taste. All around a great evening & we'll come again if we are in the area.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhere friends meet.Fabulous as usual- A great time was had by all due to the lovely food,drink and ambience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a nice evening with friendsHad a nice evening with friends (6 in our party).

Try one of the Jazz events!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very nice dinnerWe had a very nice dinner with friends and especially enjoyed the fact that we could actually talk across the table and hear the conversation. The food was fantastic. We all had some version of the veal and it was excellent. We will definitely be back soon.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood find!Love this restaurant! Food is great and always fresh. They have music on Tuesday evenings and the owners make an effort to greet everyone and welcome you if they are around. Lots of choices and they adjust their seasonings etc. to suit you if you ask. Salmon (when it's on the menu) is always fresh and tasty. Nice outdoor seating with greenery around the edges so you feel like you are not on the street or next to the parking lot wherever you sit.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable BrunchWe enjoyed meeting up with family for a very good brunch. We were well served and unrushed.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant evening in a nicePleasant evening in a nice outdoor setting. Italian food O'K, but not great. Our table was in the corner where our waiter sometimes forgot us, but it was nice and quiet so we could talk.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the waitFantastic cozy place with a great staff. What makes this place great (the limited number of tables inside) also make it difficult to get an exact time for a reservation. If you book on line and must sit inside, call to confirm what time they can seat you. Either way it will be worth the wait.1/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent. Even have a lowExcellent. Even have a low cal menu and gluten free offerings. Just love the place!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
