Horrible. From the start, where we were waiting for service to actually show up to work, to the end, where service made us wait another 30 minutes only to squeak that their payment system was down, it was a shitshow.

As you can infer, the service was absolutely the worst aspect of our experience. Service seemed to spend more time hiding from work than actually showing up and helping customers.

We waited 30 minutes before service woke up from their nap and showed up, in the nick of time as we were about to walk out. I wish we had. The remainder of the dinner was effectively an endless series of waits punctuated by a handful of excuses and other rubbish.

This was compounded by the utter lack of communication. Multiple items were substituted in what we ordered - which we did not request or want - and service only admitted to these when pressed. The “tiger prawns” in the scampi were substituted with low grade shrimp. Service then made numerous excuses about what supplies the kitchen ran out of. That should have been the first thing to come out of their mouths.

The food we “ordered” might have been ok, but with the undesired substitutions, we really couldn’t eat it, leaving most behind.

As if this weren’t enough, service vanished yet again for 30 minutes to run our payment. They returned with another excuse - this time the payment system crashed - and wrote our card number on a slip of paper (without our consent) to run when the system came back online.

The only good in this experience was the hotel valet. He possessed a professionalism and positive attitude which the restaurant could learn from.

Limited menu. Food was just ok. And the ambiance was depressing because it was almost empty and the resort is under construction right behind the restaurant.

Lovely setting (outside), great for people-watching. We did have a struggle dealing with the flies, but that’s not something we can blame the restaurant for. It was, sincerely, an elegant Saturday morning brunch and we’ll do it again.

Will never eat here again. Everything about this restaurant was lacking. Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, despite the fact that we had a reservation. The host actually asked if we'd been helped yet when SHE was the one who had checked us in 15 minutes prior and told us we'd be seated 'right away'. The server was then curt with me when I asked if I could have my steak prepared well done. The food itself was less than mediocre. From the meat (flank steak) to the chicken (chix parm) and even the dessert (apple tart), everything tasted as if it was frozen and reheated. We ate there out of convenience, since we were staying at the hotel, but I would've happily driven elsewhere if I'd known the food and overall experience would have been so lousy.

The food was excellent. However the grounds were under construction. (not mentioned on their website). Also open table gave me a seat for 4:45 but the restaurant didn't open until 5:30 pm. Although I was disappointed to miss out on the beautiful grounds I enjoyed in the past, the friendliness of the staff made up for it. I enjoyed my meal and was happy to visit again.

We had a fabulous server in Angel....he was awesome, and provided great recommendations for food and drink. The staff at Pinzimini is like a big family - not something you expect from a hotel restaurant. The food was delicious, well priced, and creative. Excellent wine selection too. We live in the area, and will be frequent guests at Pizimini!

The salmon entree and spaghetti w/meatballs (4) were well prepared and nicely presented. The pistachio ricotta cheese cake w/fresh berries was delicious. The service was attentive in spite of busy Father’s Day. We will be returning.
The only negative to our meal were the two flys that seemed to “table hop” based on who was just served.

Had breakfast here on Fathers Day. Truly breakfast is the only meal we actually like at this restaurant. Lunch and dinner have always been disappointing. The service was excellent. Great staff!! Still, the pricing is ridiculous? $28 for a Denver Omelet! We prefer the French Cafe which makes really great omelets for about $18.

Sorry Westin - even though you are across the street from where we live we’ll probably use your restaurants for drinks only.

New restaurant for us - this was a birthday brunch - reservations were at 12:30. Two of us had the crab benedict - the potatoes appeared to have been from the morning, the hollandaise seemed to have been sitting in the kitchen all morning and the crab (?) was terrible - tasteless canned crab. Not good at all and, the fact that it was the most expensive thing on the menu ($32.00, expected something much better.
On the other hand, the muffins at the beginning of the meal were great and the service was excellent.

If you’re visiting Palm Springs for the first time, or maybe you’re a regular - Pinzimini is a wonderful modern Italian restaurant convenient for families or solo travelers. The ambiance is the ideal setting to enjoy an afternoon on the patio, or to refresh with the cool air conditioner inside and catch up on local TV.

I found that not only are the staff incredibly welcoming and friendly, but they also have a wide breath of knowledge on the menu. Elizabeth and Tracey, provided fantastic recommendations and delivered exceptional service. My personal favorites, were the Cesar salad, shrimp scampi (divine) and the pistachio cake (lovely)!

If you’re looking for a place to dine, I can’t recommend more!
