two center cut chop, marinated all day in fresh herbs and seasonings, charbroiled to perfection and served with a sherry wine glaze and fresh baked apples.

We’re not from the area but we make a point to dine at Castelli’s every time we come to the desert.
The staff are all very friendly and helpful. They make you feel like part of the family.
The food is delicious and fairly priced. Drinks are well made and generous.
We’re planning to go again this trip!
We went to celebrate my wife's birthday as we do every year because our very first date was dining at Castelli's!
Jose was a wonderful, professional waiter.
Food was fabulous.
Osso bocco and veal Milanese outstanding as was the Caesar salad and house dessert.
Will be back to dine again soon ❤️
Place was very good not great. Enjoyed the bar area more than the back of the restaurant due to noise level. Couldn’t hear a thing. All and all good Italian with live music in the bar and very friendly staff.
Not a welcoming environment at all. Food was very nasty and had my husband and I in the toilet all night long (TMI). Over priced for what it is as well, we will not be returning.
Also there valet system is horrible and needs work.
Birthday dinner- totally a hit!!
Business meeting that went well. Love this restaurant especially when seated in the main bar dining area. Our server … Nick was awesome and entertaining as usual. Food service and presentation was great as always. Love this place and love the food. All of it. We dined here twice this week. If I lived in PS I’d dine here weekly.
Fantastic service and excellent food. Would host our colleagues again
Service by Jaime was impeccable and friendly at the same time. Food was wonderful. Lovely experience.
Castilli’s has been a favorite of ours for years, and they knock it out of the park every time! My husband and I try to have dinner at Castilli’s at least twice during our one or two week vacation in Palm Desert, and we’ve never been disappointed. The seafood is outstanding, and so are the pastas; however, the veal chop is essentially indescribable because it’s so delicious!!
Excellent service by our waiter Bralio! Owner Michael
Castelli was busy working the patrons assuring everybody was well taken care of. An excellent family run restaurant!
Fantastic food and service
We enjoyed our dinner very much.
Awesome as Always! Had a great table and the staff was top notch once again. Can’t make a trip to Palm Desert without going at least once.
We had an enjoyable evening with delicious food, service a bit slow.
Fantastic birthday dinner!! Excellent food, service. Ambiance lacka a bit but overall we LOVE Castelli's and return again and again!
Always a great dinner. Service was efficient and very timely. Will be dining here again later this week. Just can’t get enough of whatever we eat!
Was great food and service, will be back, not a inexpensive restaurant, expect to spend money, but worth it.
There was too much noise to enjoy a quiet evening. The prices were higher than expected.
Best Italian place in the Desert! Fantastic service and food.
Excellent food and service as usual. Will never disappoint you
Food was very Bland. Service was very good. Not as good as it use to be.
The food and service was amazing!
Great experience! Server was awesome and really made the night special for us! Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice elevated experience with great food!
Fun and fabulous!
Castelli’s never disappoints. Great service - ask for Gabriel - and delicious food. We’ll be back!
A must anytime I’m in the desert. Food is awesome, waiters are pros. Never been disappointed
Going back tomorrow!
The service was above great and the food is awesome. The live piano player really makes it a nice evening out.
We have lived in Palm Springs for 22 years and drove by many times. Yesterday was our 46th wedding anniversary and in trying to decide where to eat Castelli's was our choice.
The food was absolutely delicious and our server Joe and his bussers were extremely good. Will definitely be back.
We dined at Castelli's for 20+ years on a yearly basis. After the last 3 times of having to send back food, I most likely will not be returning.
We had a wonderful birthday dinner for my husband tonight. Excellent service and the food was outstanding. Great flavors and presentation. Our waiter Tony was really fun. Thanks for the great night. we will be back again.
2 people don’t drink. Spent $160.00 for two meals no appetizers. Mentioned wife’s birthday when making reservations. Waiter brought dessert to share without asking, and charged for it. Won’t be back.
Pleasantly surprised! Service was better than expected - extra shout out to our server Tony! He was on point!
All of us had a pasta dish & not a complaint was heard! The specials sounded delicious but we were there for pasta - delicioso!!
We love going to Castelli’s and it’s always on our list when we come to Palm Springs every November for a couple of weeks. Food is great, service is awesome and the only downside is the level of noise in the restaurant. Not a good place to go if you are looking for a quiet place to talk. But we love it regardless!
Other than being loud inside it was great. The food is especially good. Best Osso Bucco that I've had in a long while. They also have a very nice wine list.
Service was very attentive. Signature pork chop so tough it was undesirable. Waiter offered to bring something else but we declined. By the time a different dish was brought to the table the other diners would have been finished. Shame for $50 for a pork chop. Vegetables very delicious. Water glasses always kept full and refreshing with a lemon slice in each glass. Excellent garlic bread. Table was by the door where wait staff assemble so a bit noisy. Nice that they brought the birthday girl a dessert as well as a delicious tiramisu as an apology for the pork chop. Overall seems to be a high end locals hangout appearing a bit like a clique with certain staff.
Regrettably, after dinning recently at Castelli’s I must report it was one of the poorest and least enjoyable dinning experience.
Service was very poor and our wait staff seem not very interest in servicing our table.
The food, while served timely, was not well cooked and tasted of old grease or oil.
It was not a dinning experience which we care to repeat.
I will be seeking other Italian restaurants when desirous of good Italian food.
Michael the bartender was very personable and made us feel welcome. Lobster ravioli and veal cannelloni are delicious. Spinach salad was excellent too.
