Sammy G’s Tuscan Grill is located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs and near some of the city’s most quaint shops and hotels.

Established in 2009, Sammy G’s has recently opened for Sammy's weekend Brunch and lunch with an innovative menu, blending traditional Italian with California cuisine. Take a break from shopping and dine al fresco for lunch on the newly renovated patio and soak up the gorgeous desert weather, or venture inside and be transported to Tuscany with the restaurant’s rustic charm.

Dinner becomes a casual yet elegant event, and traditional Italian favorites mixed with updated classics are on the menu. A semi-private room is available for family gatherings or business events.

On Thursday through Saturday nights, the Sammy G’s Lounge becomes an energetic yet intimate place to meet up with friends and dance the night away to live music and enjoy Sammy G’s signature cocktails.

Great setting, excellent server but the kitchen didn't have its act together (50 minutes wait for eggs Benedict) and the dish was mediocre at best. Stick with dinner here

The BBQ Chicken Pizza was all onions and no BBQ sauce. The chopped salad was quite small and there was crunchy chunks of salt. The calamari was very good as was the filet & peppers.

Spaced on the balcony and we were made to sit inside .
We had simple food three courses and one alcoholic drink each
The bill came to over $230 canadian dollars
Far too expensive
Quality and f food was ok but far to steep a bill

We enjoyed another great meal at Sammy G's. I would suggest, unless you are very hungry) to split your meals. Salads are very large and meal portions are large. I ordered a wedge salad and chicken parmesan with penne pasta. Salad was huge and chicken parmesan were two large pieces of chicken and ample serving of penne pasta. My wife ordered the spinach ravioli and it was a large plate that she could only eat half. All the food we have had here has been very good.

Great ambience, friendly service, nice selection on the menu. Great fresh vegetables served with each entree (not some mushy afterthought.) The appetizers were fresh and delicious. Service was speedy and efficient. The entrees were a mixed bag. The veal was reported to be delicious, the two chicken dishes were great though one was just barely warm when brought to the table the steak was over cooked and had to be sent back when a fresh one was brought out cooked properly, the person eating it said it was pretty flavourless. Adjoining tables had some seafood dishes that looked great. Will go back but probably won't order beef again.

I always love coming to this place, but I have to say the food was off this last time. Service is always excellent, just not sure what happened to the kitchen. Ambience can’t be beat, and overall experience is great, will have to try one more time to see if it was an off night for the kitchen.

We absolutely loved our Sammy G’s dinner, but if you are looking for the Happy Hour menu you need to sit in the bar or in a separate outside area by the bar. I requested outdoor dining and then we were told that the Happy Hour menu is a different outdoor area! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal , but I am not fond of this type of trick. I still will come back on any return trip to this area. It was wonderful!

I had a wonderful reunion dinner there with my niece. The service was so lovely and did not rush us at all!! The bar got a bit noisy and overflowed into the dining room, but all happy people having a good time!

A bit disappointing - took very long to get our entrees even though they weren’t crowded. Food was OK - similar to what I could prepare at home. Not bad, but not great either and certainly not worth the cost to dine.

The setting outside by fountain was lovely and it was a weekday so not crowded. The veal marsala was good but portion was small and I am not a big eater. My friend had eggplant parm and said it was just OK.
The service was good. I read reviews on OpenTable that were outstanding and I would not rate it as that but good. In general.

We asked for outdoor seating because we like eating outdoors and knew they had misters. We wish we would have known they weren’t working. We also went for happy hour and found out only the bar patio was happy hour. We were going to move to the bar patio but the misters were also not working. Website should say bar and bar patio only had happy hour and when making reservations they should let you know misters weren’t working, especially if it 100 degrees outside.

I almost always give star feedback on OT but rarely do I leave a detailed review. The exception is when I have a food item or an experience that warrants a detailed review. I began with the caprese and it was well prepared. For an entree I decided on the chicken Giuliani and it was simply exceptional. The sauce was amazing. I hadn’t had anything quite like it but If you enjoy creamy Alfredo types sauces I think you would enjoy it. I ended with the Tiramisu and it was perfectly prepared as well. The meal was capped by a complimentary biscotti with amaretto which was a nice touch. I would highly recommend Sammy G’s, ask for Eduardo as he took fantastic care of us. 5 star! Thanks much!!
