One of our favorites
Melissa, the general manager, continues to provide an excellent experience by overseeing a hand picked staff. Our server, Cliff was knowledgeable and offered suggestions for both food and wine when asked. His recommendations were spot-on. The quality of the food combined with excellent service and reasonable prices keep us coming back.

Thank to for a wonderful evening. Reservation was perfectly respected. Nice table in the patio. Excellent service by Artis.
Delicious Parma ham and a really great Italian style pizza, crispy crust and tasty filling.
The newcomers on El Paseo have a high level of competence to match !

Best real Italian Napoli style Pizz
Best real Italian Napoli style Pizza outside of Italy that I have been able to find so far in the USA made in wood fire oven. Not the americanized type of pizza. Amazing black mussels in tomato sauce that tastes like it was made by an Italian Chef. Will be back!

True authentic Naples dining...especially when it comes to pizza. This restaurant was spot on. The best minestrone soup I've ever had...very clean with the right amount of vegetables, and a tremendous flavor. Pizzas were perfect...not too watery from the cheese the way Naples pizza can sometimes be. The tomato flavor of the sauce was superb. The bread was served wrapped in paper, and tied up in string. I've not seen this before...a very nice presentation. We paid the $15 corkage fee, and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Only complaint...felt a little rushed to turn the table:/ Can't wait to go back to the desert just for this restaurant.

Great food and exceptional customer service!!! The manager, Melissa, is always on her toes to make sure everyone is happy with their food and the service.

So glad Pizza Vino is in Palm Desert. Nice to have a REAL Italian Pizzeria bistro style restaurant that is not a chain with fresh ingredients. If you enjoy Italy, you will love it. Very authentic and fabulous! Loved the arugula salad, beet salad, and pizza!

Recently opened full bar (has been beer/wine)so they are really now set to go!
I had bartender's first Negroni--he brought it our table personally. It was perfect.

Sat on the patio this time and it was a bit noisy (low ceiling).
Inside is more quite.
Sure do enjoy this place

If you make a reservation
If you make a reservation ask to be seated in the open air area. El Paseo is a nice drive with luxury stores - a great place for a "paseo" (a walk) after your meal.
They hardly give you any bread (4 really thin slices) of house bread with two oil dipping sauces - chili oil (lightly spicy), crushed garlic oil (nice kick of garlic.)
Calamari were good - could have been crispier. Aioli with it was delicious - tart and creamy. Lasagna with a crisp Italian sausage was amazing - huge slab with with what tasted like mascarpone mixed with ricotta and noodles that appeared homemade. The meat sauce was rich without being overly acidic or too heavy in tomatoes.
The white pizza with braised chicken spinach, garlic and artichoke hearts was gre

Amazing pizza! Authentic pizza
Amazing pizza! Authentic pizza oven which cooks at 800 degrees so thin perfect crust and pizza. Calamari perfectly seasoned and better than 4star restaurant down the street. Loved to and menu items reasonably priced.

Truly authentic Italian wood
Truly authentic Italian wood fire pizzas. Thin individual pizzas with interesting toppings. Don't go there expecting typical American style pizza.
4/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Piero's has excellent food. The table service was great. My only complaint was that we had reservations but still had to wait just as long as other people that walked up. Not sure why that happened. The food was worth the wait.

Patio table for 4
Very nice selections for an early lunch on the patio. Quiet -- even with several parties. Very attentive staff.
Excellent service ! You will want to come back !

Great with friends
We are regular diners at Pizza Vino and always have a great experience. This was the first time for our friends and they complimented the food and service. We introduced them to the affogato espresso dessert with a shot of amaretto liquer over the top.

Best Pizza in the desert
I love this place! I own a second home in Rancho Mirage and make a point to visit this restaurant almost every time. Love the pizza and wedge salad.

Always a pleasure
We have been here countless times and yet to be disappointed by a meal here. Yes, we do have some misses on some occassions but the meal is generally saved by the other hits we are fortunate to have ordered along with the sole miss. Our recent favorite is the pancetta wrapped bacon that is grilled to perfection. Crisp yet tender, salty from the pancetta and yet with the asparagus sweetness. I could polish off a whole plate of them myself but there's certainly enough of them to be shared. We are also fond of the lasagna and of the pizzas, particularly the white ones.

Very good spot for lunch
We had lunch--staff excellent. Food very good priced appropriate. We would recommend to families or couples.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and creative menu
We have eaten there several times. The food is consistently good. However, on this visit, either our waiter was new or experienced. He forgot many things and had to be reminded. He was very nice - just not on top of things. The manager was very attentive and on top of things. We would still go back.

Fathers Day lunch.
Great Pizza, from wood burning oven. Fried Calamari and fried zucchini blossoms were very good. Service was right on.

Service is back
Thanks to Melissa Z., the general manager for addressing the service issues in the bar. This week excellent service was back. Excellent happy hour pizzas, wine and attentive service.

Best pizza I've ever had!
I love this place. Have lived in desert 9 years but never found great pizza. Their pizza is better than anywhere including my home town Chicago! Went back the very next day. Excellent service too!
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took a friend to celebrate her birthday. We each had a salad and shared a pizza. We both loved our lunch and will returln.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went 3 times in one week. I ordered fish and I'm not a lover of fish. It was wonderful. We love love love their salmon pizza. The Caesar salad is also wonderful. Ask for Victor!

We love Piero's; the food is excellent, well priced, delicious and the service is outstanding. Try their Salmon, some of the best around

Pizzavino is Pizzadelicious!
Appetizers, salads, and pizza are all awesome! This is my second visit and I can't say enough good things. This time we also tried the calzone, it exceeded my every expectation.
From the perspective of an out-of-towner, I consider this location a must during every visit!
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved our choice for dinner. 5 of us hungry. Great pizza choices.....ample servings for our salads we shared. Good wine list and overall very good service. Would go back in a heartbeat.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had delicious "early bird" pizza specials. A great, three course prevening meal.

Best pizza ever
I thought the pizza was the best ever. My son even got free ice cream. Yummy!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Foodie heaven in the desert
A great alternative to all the steak places in Palm Desert. Pizza was light yet filling. Not greasy.
I'm normally not a beets person but the beet carpaccio was excellent.
The nutella raviolis are a must for desert!

Best Pizza in The Coachella Valley
Incredible pizzas here. I had a white pizza with sausage and mushrooms - awesome! The burrata is amazing!!! Always good service here - the GM makes sure of that. :D

A diamond among many
Piero's is a gem of modesty among a number of more expensive and pretentious eateries on Palm Desert's restaurant row - you will not find the arrogance or airs of nearby eateries but rather great service and equally great food and we will return tonight for our farewell dinner in this city.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food BUT
During our most recent visit this week we found out that Melissa, the manager is leaving. What a disappointment. We have been going to this restaurant for a few years and Melissa is always there to make sure things run smoothly or to correct something when it does not. When she goes on vacation or is not working we always know without anyone having to tell us because the service level is just not the same. In my opinion the customer and restaurant are the losers here. Time will tell if we will continue to be regular visits because its not all about the food only.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal!
Returned two days after our first meal for lunch and found it as good as, if not better, than dinner before. Great food, great service, knowledgeable staff - all combining to make our final day in the city fabulous!

Dining in the Bar
We dined in the bar and received EXCELLENT service from Josh who is super attentive and full of personality. Pizzas are crisp and delicious. We had a light dinner with grilled asparagus wrapped with pancetta and Bubba Bubba Pizza. Yum. We'll be back!

While the overall experience was good, I was disappointed that nothing was done to acknowledge my birthday. Most restaurants do give a dessert.

Happy to have this place nearby
Very good pizza, sidewalk patio, decent wine selection. I'll walk here anytime...
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Inconsistent but has potential
We dined both Wednesday and Friday dinner. Wednesday was disappointing, but I wanted to give it another try - there seemed to be potential there. Friday was much better - ordered the beet carpaccio both nights, entirely different and much better on Friday. Mashed potatoes on Wed were very oily and not edible. Pizza was ok - but not great. Tried Alba pizza on Friday - excellent. I hope next time we get a repeat of the Friday experience.

Best Casual Italian Restaurant
A casual Italian Restaurant that is the offspring of Mama Gina's across the street which is the brother to the wonderful Mama Gina's i Florence. Small plates, pizza, and entrees cooked in the wood fired oven. The roasted half chicken, the mussels, the lasagna are our faves.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM

I'm Gluten Intolerant and I love Peiro's selections for me. Wonderful pizza choices. We found the service to be more than willing to accomodate our needs, friendly and courteous. We enjoyed the patio eating but have eaten indoors as well. We will return often,

Pizza Vino is a great addition to dining in the desert. Outstanding first plates and the pizza is perfect!

we've yet to have an unfavorable or disappointing experience here thru 15 or so visits
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was excellent, our server was very good, but the hostess and management need to treat their customers better. We arrived early to a near empty restaurant and were seated early while waiting for another couple to join us in about 30 minutes. We ordered drinks and asked for happy hour prices since we were there during the happy hour, but because we were sitting in the "restaurant," happy hour did not apply. We had to move to a bar table, order our drinks and appetizer while waiting for the other couple to arrive. This is not the way to treat your customers, especially at 4:30 p.m. in a near empty restaurant!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good to eat with friend & family
Friendly service and delicious foods. We will go back whenever visit Palm Desert.
