Trilussa is one of our favorites, great pasta dishes, nice people, great service, and the after dinner treat of Amaretto (or Sambucca your choice) with a biscotti a bonus

We love coming to Trilussa. The food is always wonderful, but all the wonderful people who work in the restaurant make it a true dining experience. Food is just food. It is the people who really make the restaurant. This is a truly winning combination of great food and great service!

Food and service very good. I had lasagne and my husband had the seafood/pasta special, we were both very pleased with our choices. A very good go to local restaurant for Italian food. And a great martini, yum! We enjoy it as often as possible.

I have been here before. Initial impression from thefront desk not too good..I had reservations arrived 5 mins early and was coldly told I’d have to wait since I was early...it got better with the server, JC, who was spectacular. Food was exceptional.

Service was exceptionally slow. The food came out rather timely, pizza was good, it just seemed like we were always searching for the wait staff to notice us.

Great food but white wine list is remarkably brief and unimaginative. No white Italian?? Take advantage of the $15 corkage fee and bring your own.
Will go back for sure, but with bottle in hand !

We had an excellent dinner on a beautiful patio with heaters. Our server was excellent. I had chicken Marsala with pasta that was delicious. My husband had pasta that was great. We shared a nice bottle of wine. Thanks

I've visited here 3 times in the last 3 weeks for dinner. The reservation and reception was excellent. The service is hard to describe. We had the same waiter twice. We ordered a bottle of chardonnay all 3 times, but were only given a wine cooler once when it was a different waiter. The waiters seem distracted but they don't give poor service, just not that interested in the customers or in us at least. Sometimes they are busy chatting with each other. Once you get to order it goes more smoothly. The food was nice and hot each time..lasagne, chicken parmesan. Bread and tapenade nice. Salads were good. Dessert good. Accommodated gluten free.

We had a reservation, and arrived early. We were told we were early, and the hostess would come and get us. The reservation time passes, and we were still waiting, so I went to the desk and asked for a status - essentially, what is the point of a reservation if we cannot be seated. A manager stepped in, and resolved the issue. The hostess needs more training. Once seated, the dinner was superb. the service flawless, and we will go back again when we are in Cathedral City.

I have been here before a few times and it's nice, but this night it was very busy and very noisy, hard to have a convo with your companion...the food was not up to par on this night, a little over cooked which ruined the dish, the tomatoes with the Caprise salad where hard and white and should not have been served at all.. so over all it wasn't a good night for the food..but I will try again in the future... some nights are just off.

Every time we go to Trilussa Ristorante it is always the best. You feel like a guest and not just a paying customer. The food is always good and preparation is very attractive. And the live music always makes it fun. It is our favorite restaurant and is always our first choice for a lovely meal.

Picked this out of a search results page on Open Table and it was a great find. Kitschy Italian decor, friendly staff and delicious food. Italian food can sound authentic from a menu, but taste bland and inauthentic. This place was not that at all. Really flavorful. Would definitely go back if I’m in the area again.

Not a stranger to Trilussa, I always come away happy that I decided to dine there. Service, food, and ambiance are top notch, and minor requests are always honored. I will continue to be a customer there.
Thanks.

Enjoyed another nice dinning experience at Trilussa. Waiter Josh was his usual friendly, attentive, and helpful self. Described specials for that night, as well as some of the new dishes and changes to the menu that are being tried out. Trilussa continues to be one of our favorite places to dine out in the Desert.

I treated my sister to diner for her birthday. She loves the pasta primavera at Trilussa. We were treated with excellent service and periodic check-ins. She was given a lovely dessert as a part of her evening. We enjoyed ourselves and will certainly return soon

Excellent food as always and tonight’s steak was melt in the mouth. However, food was slightly let down by the service which is normally impeccable. For the first time ever our main courses arrived before we had finished eating our starters and as such were not as hot as we would have liked. One of the reasons we love the restaurant is that the pace is more European and not rushed. It was then some time before our starter plates were removed from the table. We also didn’t receive the usual complimentary amarettos with the bill but we could see other diners had.
Maybe just an off night and won’t stop us visiting again

I have dined at Trilussa a few times before. The only recommendation that I have is that we were going to be seated in a far corner right next to other folks. I called it out to Ashley and unfortunately, she sat us at another table for 2 right next to another party...I really do not like having dinner with folks I do not know! Very sad that she had no clue.....We are affluent patrons.....I will try once again, but if the same occurs, I am done. Thank You! Dr. John A Coldsmith (760-234-8364)

I love the food and the staff at Trilussa. The only reason I did not review Trilussa in the past is that I am afraid that too many people will love it and there will not be a table for me!

I have gone there 20 times and never had a bad meal.

We sat outside and the setting was lovely. Somehow my order was missed so I didn’t get served until my friends were almost done. When I flagged down another server to say I had not been served yet, our server brought me another glass of wine so I was happy!

The summer early bird was definitely worth the value.
