    We enjoy every time we go to Trilussa. The food is amazing, the wait staff are professional & on top of their game. If anything needs to be addressed, the happy hour crowd should not have the same entrance as those with reservations. They are very pushy. Also I don’t do the happy hour because high tables are kind of difficult for seniors especially if you have mobility issues.

    Food was really good. We had a small caesar salad, which was a nice size, followed by Shrimp Risotto and Capellini with fresh tomato sauce. We had asked if we could order the veal picatta, but replace the roasted potatoes and asparagus with capellini. The server came back telling us we basically had to pay $8 for the substitution. Swapping out potatoes and asparagus for capellini? No thanks! We received water and bread right after we sat down, but waited 20 minutes for our waiter to come to our table. Maybe he was on break?

    I’m sorry for the low stars but the service was horrific, we had Ana. Only the bus boy came right away the Ana came about 5 minutes later. Everyone else served her food and she did not return until we sent someone to fetch her. When she was just hanging out and laughing. My Pizza was like cardboard and the chicken on it was very dry. My husband and In-law said theirs was ok. We had to wait 10 minutes until we got in-laws BirthDay desert. I asked for the check 3 times. We have been there before and it was fine but, Trilusa you have to do better if you want the locals to come back.

    Arrived half hour before reservation but seated right away. Lovely restaurant, and service. We ate early for early bird specials which were a great value. We weren’t the only ones as the place was very busy. We’ll be back.

    Our waitress Elizabeth and the support team in place were amazing. Always a smile! We all had the filet and we almost didn’t need a knife. The only thing I didn’t care for was the amount of sauce on the plate! Half of that amount would have been generous.

    Great food, Ana was very attentive, sweet, and informative as our server, the ambience is intimate and they have live music. This is why I come so frequently, whether it's date night or the wife's randomly craving her favorite pasta/pizza, you'll find us at Trilussa!

    1st time where we had our dishes come on top of each other. We got our wine and bread, our salad showed up immediately, then our dinners came before our salads were cleared. Our waiter handed had our check ready before he asked about dessert. It was like they had the table we were at booked for another couple. We were in and out in 40 minutes for a great relaxed meal we get here that the experience lasts for 1-1/2 hours. Slow down Trillusa on this type of experience. I can get that anywhere, you guys are a special place

    We love this restaurant but busy at 6pm last night and the service was not up to par. Several reminders for things we wanted, including the bill. Very nice wait staff but just not up to the regular service level we are used to at Trilussa. Had a birthday celebration and we appreciate the attention to our Birthday guest. She loved the tiramisu and Amaretto at the end of the evening. Thank you.

    Since we made the Desert a second home we have been going to this restaurant regularly. Unfortunately, this last time although the food was ok it was not the food as it used to be a few years ago. Josh, our server thought was amazing and very accommodating. We will return because we love this place but we hope that the food will get back to "normal"

    We had the Sunset dinner for $29.95 each, 3 course meal. What an amazing bargain with excellent food. The waiter was attentive and answered question about some of the dishes. I had the New Zealand rack of lamb for just $10 more and it was cooked just as I had order, nice and succulent. With dessert came a complimentary after dinner drink. We sat outside on a charming patio with a fountain near us and the voice of Frank Sinatra in the background. A perfect setting for a wonderful meal at an amazing price. This has got to be the best bargain in the whole valley.

    TOO SALTY! The flavors were fine (nothing special) but the overall sodium levels on my dinner and my husband’s were both crazy high. I stopped eating mine part-way through dinner. I wasn’t enjoying it. I’d have been more neutral about the overall experience and rating but the restaurant was SO LOUD. I requested a “quiet table” in my reservation process. I am hearing impaired. We were placed in the center of loud dinner parties. That was the only available table even though I had a reserved time. Clearly nobody cared about the request. I thought that was disrespectful. I couldn’t hear the dinner conversation, and I could not wait to get out of there. Neither of us want to return.

    Excellent Italian food choices with a wonderful chef. Our favorite Italian restaurant here in the Palm Springs area. There is a wide wine list including reasonably priced US and European wines. Always a live musician for background as a guitarist or pianist adds a nice background ambiance to the wonderful food. Every diner is offered an after dinner drink that is a nice touch. Normally, we rave about our server with a 5 star overall rating. Unfortunately, this visit was a bit clumsy and the attention to our table was disappointing. Overall very good, so we will be back again.
