Four of us, were very happy with service, food, and the food served in a timely manner
No WIFI?? Seriously?? Unacceptable in today’s world. We shared a veal chop - it was overcooked and dried out and not worth the high price. Other local Italian restaurants are WAY better (e.g., Costelli’s). The service was great and the Maitre D was very nice and personable. But we judge restaurants by the food and this meal was not very good. We won’t be going back.
How did we not find this place before?! What a perfectly lovely dining experience. Lively dining room filled with people clearly enjoying themselves as much as we were. Our waiter was delightful and so attentive, as was the rest of the staff. Always a good sign: when the maitre d' comes over to inquire during one's meal that everything is satisfactory. Our pasta dinners were excellent. The wine selection is very good. Overall, we felt so comfortably welcomed. Will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful meal with superb service . We definitely will be coming back many more times!!
We had the Mamma Gina salad, pasta e fagioli soup, then shared the veal Parmesan, followed by Tiramisu. All was flawless.
Lovely dinner with great service. It was a nice time and delicious food.
Every dish we all had was wonderful just like last year when we were in town and are here. The veal Parmesan is amazing.
Perfect evening from table to service to food, wine and dessert to celebrate 60TH Birthday! Staff extremely professional. Most highly recommend!
Mamma Ginas is always a treat. Ate in main dining room, excellent and attentive server.
I always order veal chop-best veal chop in the country. Comfortably upscale.
Always outstanding! Food, wine, service and ambiance.
When y’all in Palm Desert area both Momma Gina and Piero’s PizzaVino a must for excellent and traditional Italian.
We love the ambiance of Mama Gina for getting together with friends and the food is always fantastic.
Ate there for birthday last year. They remembered and offered free dessert.
Amazing food and service 😎
Always the best !!! Angelo rocks !!! We were in Palm Springs for 6 days and ate at Mamma Gina's twice. Enough said. Can't wait to come back.
Best Italian food in town & I come from the OC area.
When we travel to Palm Springs we always go to Mamma Gina's - and as always the service, meal and everything was fabulous. We recommend highly and will probably return for another meal this week while we are still here.
This was our first time at Mamma Gina. We had an awesome waiter who was attentive and helpful. The food was great with so many good selections. It was noisy but not annoyingly so. The only negative is that it’s a little pricey for Italian.
Mamma Gina does not disappoint. Wonderful Italian dishes. I had the puttanesca entree and the mushroom soup. The soup was outstanding.
Great bar offering (they have any spirit). Excellent wine list.
And always a very attentive wait staff.
It was a special dinner for my sweetheart’s birthday and everything was perfect. Our waiter recommended a great wine to go with the pasta and even brought us a little Tiramisu when we declined dessert!
As usual the food was outstanding. We had the best risotto ever! We had a lovely white Italian wine. The valet parking is a nice touch.
Alfredo brought more to the table than food. His verve, his energy, his positivity, his "whatever it takes" attitude made our dinner the best yet in the desert - and my birthday even more special.
If you're looking for Italian cuisine, look no further. Mamma's is the best in the valley, guaranteed!
Everything was exceptional - from the complimentary bread basket to the exquisite calamari to the spaghetti carbonara. We also had veal and beef dishes which were prepared exactly to order. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. The service was unobtrusive and professional.
Alfredo our waiter was fantastic! Food was delicious!
One of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been too. Service was excellent. Quality and taste of food was incredible. Can’t wait to visit again next time I’m in town. Amazing food.
Birthday celebration of 6. Was surprised with birthday desert.
Host so very professional!
Love the booths!
Truffle mushroom pasta Superb!
We ate at Mama Gina’s before going to the Theatre and had great service and wonderful food.
First time at this Desert institution. The restaurant did not disappoint. Ordered the Veal Chop which was just magnificent. Perfectly cooked, and seasoned. The service was very well done, and we were all made to feel like we were at home. I will definitely return to enjoy the pasta, which looked really good as well!! Thank you!
It was fine. Food was good but not great. Server was lovely but the support staff were constantly reaching over us to fill water glasses and clear plates instead of walking around the table. Also, we had a birthday at our table, I called ahead to mention it, when we arrived they confirmed they had it noted but when the dessert we ordered came they didnt provide a candle or sing or do anything to acknowledge it. None of these things are such a big deal but all contributed to a luke warm experience.
Always a lovely meal with great service
Great restaurant, amazing food, we went twice in 2 weeks and both times it was unbelievable good
I can go eat there daily
Dinner was delightful. Service was excellent and the food was delicious! Love Mamma Gina's!
It was a return visit and it consistently lived up to our other experience which was fantastic- authentic Italian cuisine at its finest !
Really enjoyed our dinner. The corkage is unnecessarily expensive. ($25) The food was delicious however and the valet was right on the money.
One of our favorite places to eat when we are in the Palm Springs area. Molto buono!
This is my absolutely favorite restaurant in the entire valley. Best food, best service and best ambience!! It cannot be beat!!
We were greeted and seated immediately. Service was average. Food for price was average. My salmon was overcooked. My husband had veal piccata special. It was also mediocre quality and flavor. Would not be our first choice for an Italian meal with friends in future.
Loved the food!
