Italian
From the classic Italian music to the candlelit tables, the nostalgic atmosphere at Johnny Costa’s Ristorante feels like traveling back to midcentury times. It’s no wonder Frank Sinatra was once a regular at this fine Italian restaurant, which has been honored by Palm Springs Life as best Italian restaurant for 10 consecutive years. The Costa family continues the legacy of late chef-owner Johnny Costa, who was pals with Sinatra when he moved to Hollywood from New York in the 1960s, and a decade later served as the singer’s personal chef at his desert home. Costa’s pedigree lives on in his legendary recipes, including his classic cioppino. Open for dinner at 5 p.m. Closed Sunday & Monday

    I really enjoyed the experience. The Chicken Parmigiana was very good. It was nice and thin. The service was excellent. I would definitely return on my next visit to town.

    Now my favorite restaurant in Palm Springs due to the menu (the best eggplant parmigiana i have ever had as well as a wonderful caesar salad and fried calamari), excellent cocktails, superb service (Matt is the BEST), easy parking, a warm not too noisy ambiance, and great food at a good price. My highest recommendation!
