Diner Reviews
  • "We started with baby artichokes (canned) with goat cheese (fried chunks). We expected fresh chokes and some integration with the cheese, so this was disappointing. Followed with two pizzas. We had high hopes, given the high heat wood fire and 00 flour. The crust flavor was good, but the crusts were too thick (not crispy) and the toppings were way too heavy for the pizza (at least twice as much sauce as there should have been). We were seated on the porch, where they were running the AC (totally inadequate, sit inside); the space was so loud we couldn't hear each other. The highlight was dessert - good cannoli and creme brûlée. Overall, the food is just okay, though it's some of the better stuff we had in the area. Not a town for foodies"

  • "Always delicious food and such a expansive and varied menu with friendly and fun waiters. Attentive service as seems to always be the case and really a consistently good experience. Took out of town guests for this visit and all were over the top impressed so may have to talk the owner into opening an Indianapolis location! Yum!"

  • "have seen this place many times as I drive down El Paseo but never tried it. After reading reviews, we tried it and it was delicious. They have fantastic wood-fired pizza plus we saw lots of other scrumptious looking dishes going to other tables...we will be going back. its very casual so quite a few kids...not for a romantic evening out but very good food."

  • "It was mid afternoon Sunday, and I missed lunch. I checked Open Table, and found Piero's!! The menu sounded yummy, so I headed over. Got a window table in the bar and was greeted warmly by the hostess. I ordered a cherry-orange martini and pizza w arugula n prosciutto. Light and amazing! I also ordered the fried baby artichokes n goat cheese. There were four perfect little pieces and two nice slices of warm goat cheese, with a lovely little sauce to dip them in. It was a perfect size for one. I also had a great sized salad w romaine, bread chunks, and teardrop tomatoes. Overall, I loved everything I ordered and will be a regular there everytime I am anywhere near Palm Desert!! They made me feel very welcome too, even though I was alone."

  • "Our first visit, we will come back. The Tuscan salad was very fresh and tasty. Just like in Italy you won't find two pizza made the same, the pizza dough here is good, has a nutty taste. Thin crust is not too thin, not too thick...just right."

  • "When I try a new Italian restaurant I base my comments on the sauce by ordering either lasagna or spaghetti and meatballs. In this case I order the spags which in this case was gluten free penne. The penne was made well and the meatballs were surprisingly good. The sauce, however, was not acceptable to me and for that reason I will not return to this restaurant. My wife ordered the marinara pizza on gluten fee crust. This turned out to be a bad choice. The crust was not so bad but the sauce made this dish no good. To be fair, the service and ambiance were very good."

  • "Small restaurant with small patio, nice ambiance. Service was good. Waiter got order wrong (thought I ordered salmon pizza when should have been grilled salmon). Not a big deal. Quickly corrected error. Salmon was good but drowning in sauce. Would order dry next time. Pizzas are excellent! Prices are reasonable. Unusual cocktail menu. Would go back for sure. "

  • "We had a nice casual meal on the patio. My husband and I shared the small spinach salad (which was plenty to share as a starter) and ordered 2 pizzas. I shared a margarita pizza with my 6 year old (who happily ate half of it). I also got the side of meatballs and it was delicious. The wine list was a little disappointing, so we opted to just get wine by the glass. Food and service was very good. We will go back next time we are in Palm Springs area!"

  • "Took friends for their first time. Friendly staff, good food & cocktails AND Piero Himself even stopped at our table to say "hi". We've been frequenting his establishments for over 30 years and I'm not sure he recognized us. Maybe he needs to hire another "front" man like Bobby Mayo."

  • "We ordered fried clams for our 2 Boston natives. They loved them! The clams have bellies, not just strips. Then we ordered the quatro fromageo white pizza, the margarita pizza and the prosciutto & arugula pizza. All were delicious. Our only complaint was that the staff was so busy it was hard to flag so done down to get a beer. All in all, it was great."
