“Nice Place, Pretty Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

In a shopping center so not the greatest location. But inside nice and cozy. Lots of folk so seems popular with the locals. Have a $19.99 dinner special, a very good deal. Wife had sand dabs, very good. I had spaghetti with meatballs after recommendation of waiter. Was just OK.

Service was nice, a bit slow.

Overall pretty good.

“Neighborhood favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

Another neighborhood favorite for snowbirds who come to town for the winter. Locals enjoy it year round with reasonable prices and a three-course menu that is tasty.

“Excellent family owned neighborhood Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

This is one of our favorites in the desert. Wish it were in palm desert but its worth the drive to La Quinta. The minute you sit down the antipasto and hot bread is on the table. We brought our own wines and corkage was only $15 for two bottles. Very reasonable. There were four of us and meals ranged from veal scallopini, seafood risotto and chicken stuffed with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto which was delicious. Meals come with minestrone, cold gazpacho or salad. The gazpacho was superb. Salads looked fresh. Dessert is included which was a delightful bread pudding. Hadn't been here yet this year but will be back. Great food, wonderful service and fun atmosphere. We had no reservations but were seated immediately. Not one seat was vacant on a thursday night off season.

“Always Quality, Always friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

Get there early as it is a very popular Itallian resturant. Great food, wine selection and service. The meal is always topped off by their wonderful bread pudding. One of Arnold Palmer's favorite resturants in La Quinta.
