The restaurant is wonderful starting with the amuse Bouche that they give you if you make a reservation on open table. The food was delicious as well as plentiful. They brought us an amazing dessert for the birthday we were celebrating. And the service is always wonderful.

We arrived to the restaurant and the hostess welcomed us gratefully, everything was outstanding, our server Elizabeth was perfect, sweet, and patient! The food was amazing, the taste, and the presentation were super good! Everybody there was kind and always asking if we were ok! Totally recommended!

As usual, the restaurant was quiet and great for our meeting. The food was very good, but the service was less than attentive (e.g., my fries were cold by the time the second person I asked for ketchup finally brought it).

The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was lovely. The food was meh. No flavor to the chicken Parmesan, and the pork loin was tough & flavorless as well. The wine selevction was good & the Tempranillo we had was delicious. The dessert selection is sad. We elected not to waste the calories on it.

The food is very tasty and healthy, and the restaurant ambiance is tasteful and nice. My reason for the low rating on service was that I had noted in my Open Table reservation that we were there celebrating a birthday, and that two of the diners were vegetarian, and neither were acknowledged. I actually had to ask the hostess if she saw my open table reservation because she did not acknowledge that either, and I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to get dinged for being a no-show.

Food was great even though we took our entrees to go. Second course took over a hour , we felt the server forgot about us. We saw two tables be sat and received their full course dinner before us.
Asked for explanation from our server and she said “she didn’t know she just waits for food to come out”

I THINK THAT THE ROOM IS TOO LARGE AND TOO EMPTY. WE WERE THE ONLY TABLE HAVING LUNCH. THE ROOM WOULD BE BETTER SERVED AT DINNER ONLY. THE FOOD WAS GOOD AND SERVICE WAS ADEQUATE. BUT THE AMBIANCE WAS COLD AND STERILE. I WILL NOT GO BACK AGAIN.....FOR LUNCH.

I really liked this restaurant and would not hesitate to return. If you love Calamari like me be sure to order it. Might be the best I ever had!

Service was quite good even though the back waiter was a little inexperienced. Ambience nice however it is a bit on the noisy side.

Great location; wonderful food and Jose was terrific! Go on the weekend for their hearty brunch; one of the area's best. Valet parking; as convenient it gets. When you're in the Palm Desert area, this is the place to be (and a great hotel at which to stay)!

Beautiful restaurant! Food and wine were great! Server was not friendly and seemed to "assume" things about us. For example, he picked up our wine glasses when we arrived before asking if we wanted wine this evening. When we asked him for a particular wine, he quickly stated that it was not sold by the glass only the bottle....we wanted a bottle which was why we chose that particular wine. Throughout the entire meal, he seemed to be bothered by our presence but when two couples arrived together that he apparently knew, he was all smiles. Just seemed he could have been nicer to the "tourists" as we may or may not return.

People! You really need to go here more often. It is one of the best restaurants around - by far. Every time we go, they treat us like royalty here - love it! Great food, great service, and great atmosphere - you just can't beat it. A little bit of a drive to get here - but, very worth it. Thanks again Pinzimini - you hit it out of the park.

I wish I could give Pinzimini a good review, but the gluten free pizza I had was tasteless and watery. I only took a few bites and left the rest. The edges were slightly burned and the rest of the crust was like cardboard. I know there are good gluten-free crusts out there (Stuft Pizza), but this one was not worth wasting calories on. The other people I dined with liked the pizza they got (not gluten free), but said the pasta dish was just okay. The other thing we didn't like was, when we were done with our food, it took forever to get our check. I probably will not return, except maybe for appys.

We were provided with the best service from Elizabeth. She explained the daily specials in great detail. We were pleased to see that the Lasagna by popular demand was returned to the dinner menu. If you like Lasagna, you won’t go wrong ordering this entree, as it is fantastic.

The great table service from Elizabeth and the wait staff made for a very enjoyable evening.

We went for Easter brunch as we have the past 10+ years. The buffet was very disappointing! Food selection was very minimal compared to other years. No Easter ambience at all in decor. The price for Easter brunch was priced too high for what they had available. The hostesses were very rude when they couldn’t find my reservation even though I had an email confirmation, text and they had called to confirm the reservation day before. The server was very friendly and accommodating and apologized for the disappointment in the food selection for an Easter brunch.

I ate at this restaurant the night before and was disappointed with the choice I made but decided to give it another chance. This time I ordered the calamari and linguine with clam sauce. It was very good. I am happy I went back and will visit again.

We love this restaurant. Having been multiple times while staying at the Westin, and even just in the area, it is a great place. The staff make the event special and the food is always well executed (including the desserts). I this is one of my all time favorites. Highly recommended.

Chicken Parm was burnt on the bottom but covered with sauce as if to hide it. Restaurant was empty and yet it took 25 minutes to be served. And then it was burnt. By the time the replacement came the side dishes, which had been left behind, were cold and unappetizing. I wasn’t hungry anymore and ate only a few bites. Server never commented on that, did not offer to discount or take anything off the check, and left because it was the end of her shift at 8 PM. I sat there for another 30 minutes and no one else came by to see if I needed anything else. Very disappointed

I ordered chicken parmigiana it was one small chicken breast and small amount of pasta for 36 dollars. Well overpriced and could not compare to food from the northeast. I will say the chief sent out an appetizer of shrimp rosado for making my reservation on open table. That was very good

This was our first trip the restaurant. It was not crowded for a Saturday at 7:30. The outside dining / resort view was great. The drinks were good. They were out of my wife's requested wine, but substituted an upgrade automatically. My wife had the chicken parm. and I had the stuffed chicken breast. Both were great and enough for lunch the next day.

Convenient for Weston guests but really disappointing and overpriced food. The salmon was mushy with soft veggies and the kids tacos were heavily salted and peppered. The service was lovely and accommodating.
