Johnny Costa, founder, has been a chef & restaurant owner in the Palm Springs area since 1976. Chef & owner Johnny Costa became friends with Frank Sinatra in the 1960s & the years that followed, while cooking at various local haunts where the crooner liked to dine. He even worked as Sinatra’s personal chef at his desert home. On the menu today at Costa’s are two of the performer’s favorites — Steak Sinatra & Linguini & Clams. Around the time he worked at Sinatra’s home, Costa opened his eponymous restaurant, in Desert Hot Springs before landing in Palm Springs. Johnny’s son, Head Chef Vince Costa and his cousin General Manager Sal Illiano continue the family tradition, perfectly executing the family recipes & delighting customers. His brothers, cousins & Vince’s sons assist running the restaurant. From the formal, candlelit tables to classical Italian music & delicious fare, dining at Costa’s will have you traveling back to midcentury times.
