    Food was excellent. Service was slow for a half empty restaurant. Had to send back steak because it didn’t come out how I asked.

    Every thing was exceptional except for one dinner, the lobster ravioli tasted very fishy, old lobster.

    Wow, we used to enjoy Il Corso in Palm Springs but no longer! We were there with a guest from out of town on the 18th. Our guest ordered seafood risotto and my wife and I each had a Caesar salad and shared a pizza. The salad was chopped up in such tiny pieces, it was difficult to eat. But the pizza!!! We used to love their thin crust Margarita pizza but this one was too thick, had far too much sauce, and was a bit soggy on the bottom. Our guest said her risotto was not good. When we got to the restaurant, it was early and nearly empty. However, it took forever to get our drinks (just iced tea and water), warm but stale bread, and then had to wait a long time to actually get our meal. To put in perspective, our reservation was at 6 p.m. and we didn't leave the restaurant until nearly 8 p.m. We don't plan on returning which, as Palm Springs residents, is sad.

    We had an enjoyable evening while dining at Il Corso. We had previously dined at their other location in Palm Desert. The restaurant was off the busy street (Hwy 111) and we had a nice quiet corner seating section. Our attendant was knowledgeable and very polite. The food was delicious and we enjoyed our meals. We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant provided a nice ice cream dessert on the house. The sweet dish was a great way to close the meal.
