    While waiting for my order to be taken, I was served iced tea but, was not offered bread and Tapenade. Even after my order was taken, the traditional bread was not brought. When my Lasagna was served, I asked the server for bread and Tapenade which unfortunately never arrived.

    Write on time with the reservation, nice terrace table with a view of the courtyard. Attentive service very friendly. I had the lasagna very tasty. Terry had the Chicken piccata. Great flavor, only issue was Terry asked for broccolini well done due to dental issues. Unfortunately stems were too tough to chew, the server asked about the dish and if the broccolini was to her satisfaction. She said no but nothing was offered to replace. Great to have the amaretto and biscotti for desert we also ordered the tiramisu and bread pudding both very good. The best compliment I can give you is next time were back in town we will visit Sammy Gs and recommend to friends.

    Food took an hour and a half to get to us. The chicken was terrible. Chicken Marsala is not supposed to be sitting a a plate of watery sauce. Left most of it. Very bad experience.

    We have been coming to Palm Sorings for over 30 years. A handful of times per year. And we’ve passed by this restaurant often. Yet this was our first visit. And we will be back! Often. The food and service were quite good. You start with good bread and olive spread. Wide menu selections. We tried three items and they were all served nicely plated and were quite tasty. This place is very well run. Everyone is very nice. Manager checks in on tables. Wait staff and bus staff work very well together. Good location. You end with some complimentary cookies and Amaretto. What a lovely touch. We can’t wait to return.

    We were so glad we decided to dine here - everything about this place is spot on. My Shrimp Portofino dish was truthfully one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. Impeccable service and graciousness by Humberto, the delightful courtyard dining, fair pricing - all make this a real gem.

    Sat on the patio just through the gate and got to watch the Veteran's Day parade from our table. Had the Eggplant Parm and the Italian meat Panini. Both were awesome. Our server Ben, was run off his feet and still managed to give us great service and be very personable. To complete it all, it was a gorgeous day! we will definitely go back!

    Yikes. The food is well below average. And I mean well below. Further the wait staff are untrained re the menu. Our waiter Humberto told us the shrimp only had salt and pepper but that wasn't true, it has a sauce on it. Further we ordered 4 shrimp and they only brought us 3 and we waited 10 minutes to get the 4th. At least the ambiance is pretty and the location is easy.

    My folks have lived in Palm Springs for 25 years. We’ve been coming to Sammy G’s since 2014. We all love it, we have never had a bad experience, bad food or bad service. Prices are reasonable, ambiance is always great and we absolutely love sitting outdoors. There are very few places I would give 100/100 but this is one of them. If you are staying in Palm Springs or near here, this place will not disappoint!!!!

    Excellent food and very generous portions , ambient setting a little chilly against the terrace open doors but otherwise very pleasant . My only observation on service was it felt a little rushed , second course arrived immediately after the first course plates cleared but otherwise the staff were courteous and helpful. Highly recommended .

    Sammy G's is one of top two restaurants in Palm Springs that we enjoy. We are local residents and always take our visiting guests to Sammy G's. Dinning outside at one of the fire pit tables consistently provides us a most enjoyable evening. The warm glow from the fire is truly amazing and enhances our meal. Several of our favorite menu items are Antipasto Toscano, Minestrone Soup, Fettuccini Alfredo (also available gluten free), Wild Mushroom Ravioli and the Rack of Lamb. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The staff works well in accommodating our needs. Sammy G's is a most enjoyable restaurant.

    Ben(jamin) was GREAT! Very sweet boy with a winning smile and a desire to make certain we were taken care of. I hope you hire more of HIM in the future. This is our 4th time to this restaurant now (half lunch and half dinner). The food is great and I LOVE their daytime hostess as well. She is the epitome of an Italian Momma in my book! The ambiance turns magical at night - but even in the daytime, it is just so nice to sit outdoors and enjoy the overall design of the establishment. YAY, Sammy G's!!
