I ate the brunch. There was
I ate the brunch. There was a very wide variety of food and, the items I ate were very good. There were several wait staff on hand and many contributed to our fine dining experience. Although there were several diners, we had no problem communicating with each other or the wait staff. I enjoyed the background music too. The pride Sammy G had in his establishment was quite evident through himself and his wait staff. I had a very enjoyable time.

Best restaurant in Palm Springs
Another pleasant experience at Sammy G's! Bianca ensured we had our choice of prime spots to sit & we chose the balcony location for four. Our friendly waiter Robert paid close attention & made sure we got what we needed. He also helped customize some menu items to our liking. The assisting table staff kept water in our glasses & cleared the table with great timing. The food is always consistent & well prepared. The veal parmesan was outstanding! From the seafood, chicken marsala & lasagna, we all were thrilled with our choices & sufficiently sufficed by the large portions. Desert was tasty. After dinner, we strolled over to the bar area for some live music & dancing. The people watching at the bar is fun too. Highly recommended!

While visiting Palm Springs,
While visiting Palm Springs, we wanted a "homey" feeling Italian Restaurant and discovered Sammy's. No stranger to the Coachella Valley and the plethera of restaurants to choose from, Sammy's is a local, hidden treasure with friendly wait staff, delicious Italian cuisine, moderate prices, a full bar and wine list. We especially apprciated their accommodating our Therapy Dog, "Dexter", a large English Cream Golden Retriever. Our patio space was comfortable . . . with a heater for an unusual cool evening in the desert. The check came with two snifters full of Amaretto and home made Biscotti's. Thanks to Sergio (waiter), and the entertainment for the evening, Paul Willette, with his classic renditions of songs from the 30's thru the 90's.

Liked the food, had excellent
Liked the food, had excellent service. Only concern was the sound of the live band. Did not seem to be particularly good and, although not in the dining area there was no separation so noise went all the way through the restaurant. Strangely, there was also background music in the dining area so there was a distinct clash of sounds.

Once again the OpenTable app proved worthy as I used it to book a last minute reservation at Sammy G's - Requested an outside upper patio for 2.......... As things go I had to change the reservation last minute to a party of 4.......... Upon arrival they had a table for 4 just as requested and that is a great start to the evening! Service was great, food on point, and could not have asked for much better....... Oh, and I failed to mention I booked this on Friday afternoon for that evening and the Opentable app did not disappoint!
4/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love that the patio expands to the courtyard for outdoor dining. The service was on the slower side but when you are catching up on conversation with friends that doesn't matter much. The dinners were pretty good, not exceptional, but flavors and atmosphere you'd still come back for.

Our most favorite Italian
Our most favorite Italian restaurant in the entire Palm Springs area. Have never had a bad meal, bad service, or bad experience. We will return again and again. I strongly recommend asking for Robert to be your server. Absolutely the best.

This is a wonderful, reliable
This is a wonderful, reliable restaurant in downtown Palm Springs. As someone who lives in the neighborhood, I sometimes want escape the hubbub on Palm Canyon Drive, and though The Tuscan Grill is right on Palm Canyon, it is recessed off the street and provides an oasis from the hustle and bustle. I usually sit outside, though the porch and inside are good, too.
The food here is consistent and good. In the several times I have dined at this restaurant, everyone with whom I have dined has enjoyed it.
The one and only reservation I have about the Tuscan Grill is the service. It is usually enthusiastic but amateurish. You have to manage the serving staff to get what you want.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another wonderful dinner
We have been to Sammy G's Tuscan Grill at least a half dozen times in the past few months and have enjoyed each meal. The food is excellent, prepared as requested. There are always interesting specials and a varied menu with plenty of choices. We've had a few different waiters, but our favorite is Carlos. He is pleasant, efficient, and takes great care of us. The complimentary biscotti and amaretto at the end of the meal is a nice touch. This restaurant has quickly become one of our favorites in Palm Springs!

FIrst but not last visit
Had never dined at Sammy G's. Very impressed with menu and attentiveness of the wait staff. The music inside was overwhelming so we opted to sit on the balcony. While a bit warm it was a fabulous setting with a good view..
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Continued Great service after many visits..Robert a great waiter
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food at a leisurely pace.
The food here is great and the servings are generous. If going for dinner, plan to spend the evening because the service in leisurely. But, the waitstaff is attentive and it is a very nice atmosphere.

Tuscan Grill is always fun!
The Restaurant Week menu at Sammy G's this year included a delicious seafood risotto.

High quality at very reasonable $$
Service at the table and high quality food choices at very reasonable prices make this a consistent Italian American restaurant a favorite to return to time after time.
6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always reliable for great food
Prix fixe dinner was $26, varied choices for appetizer (friend calamari, me caprese salad) and entrees (friend seafood risotto, me Dover sole picatta) and Italian gelato for dessert. All food was cooked well, brought to the table at desired temp and tasted great. Service was good, our waiter was busy on the covered patio; special place to eat looking out to the fountain courtyard. Recommend this restaurant to friends as a reliable venue at reasonable prices.

Sammy G's, a GREAT find!
I wanted something very special for Fathers' Day dinner with my husband. We live in Los Angeles, and I waited late to make our reservations. We love the Palm Springs area, so I decided to take the drive. Wow! There's great service by your waiter and the owners who visits every table, and yes, they are a neighborhood gem. Many, many of the patrons that were there were familiar with the owners and visa versa. To our surprise, there is also live music! It was mellow enough to continue your own conversation and check in to listen when you wanted to.
It felt like a special occasion, which it was. I'm sooo glad I chose it!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
For first time diners, my friend and I were made very welcome. Our waiter was very informative about the special that day (you could almost taste the entree while he spoke). Thank you for a memorable dining experience.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful as Usual
The entire experience was wonderful, from the warm greeting to the jovial farewell. The food, service and ambiance are always superb. The Tuscan Grill is always on our list for any special occasion, or just for a really good meal.

CONSISTENT SAMMY G'S
Have never had a bad experience. Consistently good food, service, and atmosphere. Will be going back again and again.

Sammy G's turned out to be a gem for our out of town European guest.

Sammy G's in Palm Springs is GREAT
What a wonderful dinner for 3 of us, including my 2 out-of-town guests. The wine was outstanding and the pasta was truly superb. We had Veal Marsala, Chicken Piccata and Gnocci for entres, and they were are exceptional. And the price was wonderful--$150 for a bottle of wine + 2 appetizers+3 entres+coffee. Sammy's has been in PS for a long time, but it still is a GEM!!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I stopped by before my reservation to bring balloons for our table and the host let me choose whatever table I wanted. Nice.
The staff was the best. Very attentive and accommodating.
The food was excellent and we got 20% off on the wine. They brought the birthday girl tiramisu, a complementary dessert, for
her birthday (her favorite) with a candle on top. Very special.
We all had a wonderful time and agreed we would come again.
My only complaint is it was a little warm inside and even more so when more bodies filled the place. But, it was one of the muggiest days in Palm Springs that day-so, a little heat was expected.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
One More Great Meal
You are like family, really. To say that Sammy'G is excellent is under describing your eating experience. You go to a restaurant because you like the food, the staff, and the ambiance. Sammy'Gs does not disappoint. Never has and I am sure never will. When you come to Palm Springs this is a must "eat at" restaurant
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friendly, outgoing staff that seemed to be at the table when we needed them.

Enjoyable Dining Experience
Italian food prepared well. Excallent wine list. A bit pricey. Beef Carpacio appetizer was superb
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I booked this place for our 5 yr anniversary. Table was reserved already. We didn't want any carbs and they were happy to replace potatoes with veggies. Service was great and at the end we got a cake to share and 2 glasses of champaigne on the house to congratulate us. The next day we went to Chop house I booked in Open Table and they didn't even mentionned "happy anniversary" while Sammy G's mentionned it several times in the beginning and at the end what made our day very special.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
They could not have been more
They could not have been more accommodating to us. The food was outstanding - one of our very favorites and we were happy to introduce our friends to this wonderful dining experience.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
All around gem! Wonderful setting. not too noisy, really good food and service and great ambience. We will definitely be back. Great varied menu with lots of options.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed Very Much
This is a very nice restaurant in Palm Springs. Apparently, it has been around for quite some time and I can see why. Service was outstanding, food very good although I can't speak to it being authentic Italian since we did not order the pasta dishes. We had to make special requests due to diet restrictions and they were very accommodating and followed through exceptionally. Wine list per glass is not extensive, but a good selection for bottles.
We would definitely return next time we are in the area.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although the "dinner salad" was a big disappointment, the entrée was wonderful. Other guests at my table equally enjoyed their food. The bread and olive spread are a wonderful touch.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
In the heart of Palm Springs
Lots of dining options at Sammy G's. Inside or out? Open air or covered? Veal, chicken, steaks, seafood, or pasta? Homemade desserts. Location is a bit off the street, so you don't feel as if people are gawking at you while you are dining.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good night
Fun atmosphere, menu has lots of great choices, and all tasted great. Will not disappoint you or Friends.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food without being too expensive. Professional and friendly service. On Mondays and Tuesdays, entertainment by Randy, who does a wide range of music, but is not intrusive.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, Great time
Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Highly recommend reservation on weekend. Every employee was friendly with a smile on their faces. We had a large group and the service was great. The food did not disappoint. One person in our group wanted an order of traditional bruschetta, which they did not have on the menu but they made it special for her. Like I said, the service was great. Parking, on the other hand, was difficult. We had to park a block away because the lot behind the restaurant was full.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife & I had not dined here in a while and chose it for a Birthday/Anniversary meal. As always, everything was excellent, with lots of little touches. We recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fine dining experience.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lovely atmosphere and food
We were seated outdoors (which we love) and very much enjoyed our experience at Sammy G's. I had the lasagna, which needed a little work, but everything else was very good - salads and other entrees. We'll definitely go back when we are in Palm Springs.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
My 4th time to Sammy G's. I've tried something each time and have been happy with the choices. Make sure you ask for the special of the night. Service was good, there was always someone there to refill your water, Iced tea or whatever beverage you had. Nice patio seating also. The bar was very entertaining. The Band was great and everyone was up dancing. Will return.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always have a great time. We go there often. Live music had the entire place singing. Food is always great.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very enjoyable experience
Our party of five had a nice table in the "tent" area with a nice courtyard view, great lighting, comfortable seating. The food was great and the service was excellent. I appreciated the fair wine prices too.
