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 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.

Visiting Palm Springs and decided to try Sammy G's. We were a bit disappointed. The service was mediocre. We had to wait a real long time between dinner and dessert which is always a pet peeve of mine. Meals of chicken Marsala were average. THere was not much flavor of Marsala in meal. Chicken Picatta was fine but very lemony. I think there are other places to try when in Palm Springs.

Our waitress was a little flighty, but not bad. Slow to respond & messed up the bill, happily fixed it. Food was amazing, & that is the most important part!!

The food and service at this restaurant was excellent. This is one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. We enjoyed our dinner and also the overall atmosphere in the restaurant.

Waiter service was amazing! The gentlemen that was front host was not friendly and despite many empty tables told us patio was sold out. and send us to the bar!

i want to open table and made a reservation and got seated right away and during our dinner none of the tables where ever at capacity!! Explain that? is it policy to send away paying customers? Lots of choices in PS. not sure we come back. because of that experience

Sammy G's had a good and accommodating host, a beautiful ambiance and great food. I sat outside under the palm trees with heaters keeping me warm. A perfect evening with good wine and great service. I' will be back soon.

Very noisy. The service was just OK, I ordered a chicken dish and the chicken was tough. That’s not really acceptable

Showed up 4 minutes early for a reservation (gave our name and number waiting) and host told us we needed to wait until that exact time of the reservation. That is no problem for us but then she left us standing there. Eventually another staff member came up and asked about us and she asked us if we were waiting for a table for 4 (nope still just 2). The staff member took us in hand and got us to our table. Another group was standing there and had made a reservation but the restaurant could not find it so they sent them away saying they were booked. But the table next to us was open for the entire time we ate. Seemed very disorganized for the type of restaurant.

Service at the table is good but the food just OK. We had other great restaurant experiences in Palm Springs so I think there are better options.

It was a great place for dining! Great atmosphere
3/4 entrees were fantastic! Lamb and pasta dishes great. San Dabs weren’t crispy enough. Kinda dull and forgettable.... but We would all go back as it was over all a great dining evening.
