Ristorante Mamma Gina
The El Paseo location has been a landmark in the valley since 1986. Classic yet current in our selections and presentation Ristorante Mamma Gina will not disappoint you.
First time dining here. Food, ambiance and service was awesome. Our server, George was wonderful. Lyle who greeted us was so welcoming. Strongly recommend this restaurant!
Wonderful, as usual! Love it!
Always love the service and ambiance at Mamma Gina’s!
Wonderful evening!!! The food and service were both excellent. I hope to return!
We returned to Mamma Gina’s after an earlier visit this year which was excellent. We found the same great food, attentive service and comfy atmosphere as we had in April. I’m sure we will go back when we return to the desert next time.
Always enjoy this restaurant! A real gem!
nice attitude, with smiles and solid menu also good pour
Great food, great service...Wonderful ambiance...
Will return next time we are in the area!
We are on vacation from Portland,Or Wish we had an authentic Italian restaurant to enjoy at home. We live Mama Gina’s! The food is great, the service is exquisite and the ambience is perfect. We plan to visit your restaurant in Florence when we are in Tuscany next Sumner.
Outstanding experience all around. Terrific menu choices and food, and excellent service!
Food was amazing & Adrian our server was fantastic!
Mama Gina’s is my go-to place whenever I’m in Palm Springs. It’s a “don’t miss” The wait staff are excellent. Professional and attentive. I love the linguini and clams. Yum!
We had such a lovely dinner here on Tuesday, we decided to eat here once more before leaving Palm Desert! Great drinks, wonderful Mezaluna. Looking forward to next years trip!
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent. The waiter seemed a little distracted so wasn't as attentive. You forgot to bring butter three times and brought it on the 4th time. It may have just been because they were busy.
2nd time in a month, consistently great food and service.
Great service. Our pasta with clams was made per our request. Lovely desserts. Wonderful celebration!
Excellent food and excellent service! We definitely will be back!
Great food and service was impeccable. Service was very attentive and we had a great dinner. Would definitely go back.
Always a pleasure to eat here with good friends!
Yummy food and good service. We were surprised that Mamma Gina was so good!
A gluten-free dish came out with ‘regular’ linguini instead of GF pasta. Other than that it was an excellent experience
An excellent selection of Italian foods from appetizers to dessert and everything but pizza in between on the menu. The food was prepared to our order and tasted great. Service was superior and the manager visited with us twice during the meal to ensure all was well.
Always a positive experience from the beginning to the end. Great service and exceptional food.
Always enjoy eating here. Good food, drinks and service.
Excellent food excellent service. Great atmosphere
Lovely experience great food great service great atmosphere
While I was rather disappointed that the calamari is no longer
gluten free, the Bolognese never disappoints. My fave Caesar
salad. And always excellent staff.
On business dinner alone, wonderful food and service. Will return
Everything was wonderful
Great Italian Ristorante
Although the ambience is beautiful in this place, nothing can detract from the fact that I told the waiter multiple times that I had a dairy allergy and can’t have anything with butter or cream in it. However ,they didn’t adhere to my concerns. Although the waiter assured me multiple times there was no butter in my food, this was not the case.
This is a restaurant that he professed to put butter in everything. Italian restaurants that put butter in the red sauce is something to be desired. This is just another one that doesn’t care enough about it s customers. I thought it would be a beautiful dinner, but it turned into a horrific night and early morning. This is one place in the desert I won’t be visiting again.
Always an excellent choice!! Dignified and special for that special occasion.
the night started off badly. we had a reservation and were first taken to the front of the restaurant and told a table wasn’t ready so we we were taken to the back instead to the much darker and less appealing end of the restaurant by the kitchen. we saw other parties after us being sat in the more appealing section near the front of the restaurant, while younger couples and families were guided to the back. disappointed in the quality of our meal as well and how long we waited between soup/salad and the main entrees being served. the couple that was sat next to us was also displeased with their meal and took the check quickly too. unfortunate experience altogether because it was a long-time tradition for my husband’s family to come here every time they came to palm desert.
Friendly staff and excellent service
Our server, Chris, was delightful. He was funny, efficient and very nice. Three of us ordered the Special, Veal Piccata. The veal was very tender but all three of us agreed that there was too much lemon used in the recipe which put the taste off a bit. We would return but would not order the veal piccata again.
Old school Italian. Flavourful, generous servings and fabulous service.
We had a very friendly server who treated us like we were family.
Perfect place to go for date night or a celebration.
Server had a great personality and made the dining experience fun. Food was good and atmosphere was pleasant. Would definitely recommend to an Italian food lovers.
Great restaurant, great food.
Excellent food and service!! It’s our 2nd time and we’re making it a tradition every time we visit Palm Springs!
