We've dined at Mama Gina's several times and have always been impressed with the food, the ambiance and the service. This time, the server messed up 2 out of the 3 orders and because of this, the kitchen had to totally alter and then rush the prep of the remaining meals--which fell totally flat. We'll be taking a break until hopefully the restaurant decides that server isn't a good fit.

The bruschetta was average, the Caesar salad was good, the pasta was average. The affogato was excellent. It’s an ok evening but I wasn’t blown away.

First time at this restaurant. We are Italian from the east coast. This is the best Italian food in the valley, hands down! Had black squid ravioli, stuffed with lobster - outstanding! Will be back.

Noise level was pretty high due to no dividers between tables which was OK because that allows them to put more tables! And if there weren’t more tables we would not have been able to experience that amazing date.

Mama Gina's was the best dining experience we had in Palm Springs. The service was superb, the food absolutely delicious and ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner or family get together. We will definitely return to Mama Gina's next time we are in town.

Mama Gina's was to have acknowledged our 30th wedding anniversary, but they failed to do this. I had requested this online and also mentioned it when we arrived. Also for the price, the food was rather boring - mashed potatoes and spinach are not very gourmet!
