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.

I hope I received my points for this booking. We arrived an hour early and accepted an outside table in the street but they did not acknowledge my husband's b day and i felt we may not have been checked in correctly for our reservation

Awesome experience. All the staff provided VIP service. From the manager, to our server Eduardo, everyone was attentive and kind and all the food was amazing. Appetizer was the fried calamari which was the best I ever tasted at an four star restaurant. Ordered the Sea bass and Fettuccine, Alfredo(sub) steak, shrimp. Cherry martini was a nice addition to the meal. Definitely a must when in town.

Been here many times before the Pandemic. And it has always been a very good experience all the way around. This time was different story... I'd skip the Chicken Piccata.

This was our first experience at Sammy's - and we will be back! The outdoor seating with lights and fountain were quite special. Service was excellent and we were pleased to have our bread, salad and meal delivered such that we could enjoy each without rushing. To top it all off - they served us a biscotti with Amaretto at the end as our "desert" and it was the best little taste! Thank you so much!

There are many types of food to enjoy in Palm Springs but I felt like Italian food for dinner. The reviews for the restaurant were spot on and the outdoor dining in the courtyard area was beautiful and the heat lamps made the chilly night air a little more enjoyable and less cold. For our appetizer, we order the calamari. It was fresh, lightly breaded and crunchy and very tasty. For my meal, I enjoyed the Shrimp Portofino, which had big prawns and a lovely cream sauce. My boyfriend really liked his Rib-Eye Chianti, it was cooked to a perfect medium rare. We also appreciated the fresh bread with the olive tapenade that they gave you before the meal and also the almond liquor and biscotti provided as a nice end to the meal. I would definitely eat here again the next time I'm in Palm Springs.

Norma, our waiter, took great care of us.

The Mediterranean salad was tops, as always.

A great pizza too, with added Italian sausage.

Excellent Italian wine list.

Visiting PS - this was a recommendation and did NOT disappoint. Our waiter, Carlos, was great, ambience great, food & cocktails great....except for the scalloped potatoes. They were the only negative - were not hot & fairly tasteless.

Our second time here hence the return while we were on vacation. I had the lasagna and I finished the whole plate which is rare for me since lasagna is so filling and I usually can’t finish it. Not a problem this time as it was amazingly good I couldn’t stop eating it. My girlfriend had pasta primavera and she was equally as pleased. They really did a nice job of social distancing which is quite a challenge sometimes.
The waiter was great so next time we are going through Palm Springs you can bet we’ll make a point of having dinner there.
