We ate here on our way to the airport. There isn't much in this shopping center but several restaurants and a few stores. We split a turkey burger sans bread in a iceberg lettuce leaf. We ordered French fries and a glass of wine, Educated Guess Cab which was excellent. We had a great server who was very accommodating about splitting our order.

We have eaten here twice in the last two months. Once with our family of 12 people and then again just last week where we enjoyed their Happy Hour. The service was good both times. What I found to be exceptional was the amount of options being offered on their Happy Hour. It appears that they run this all day and into the night. The prices are a little less than you would find on their regular menu and it is very good. Think we shared the calamari, buffalo wings and ahi tuna. Portion size was very good.

They have a very large outdoor seating area which is very nice, but Happy Hour must be experienced in their bar area which is quite large. This restaurant is at the "River"....nice place to just walk around off of Bob Hope Drive.

They offer on their regular menu a special priced three course meal. We found the food to be very good and the price very fair for what they offered.

My daughter and I visited the Acqua Pazza on our final evening in the area while we attended the Stagecoach Festival 2014. (The Festival was horrible so we skipped out on the last day.) This little place was calling my name each time we drove by. Nice little pond/lake with fountains in it to sit by on the patio. The food was delicious and moderately priced. Service was excellent and the view just couldn't be beat. Highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a peaceful, fabulous meal.

We go to Rancho Mirage from Maryland to eat at Acqua Pazza! The food is exceptional. The Wild Mushroom soup and South of the Border Gazpacho 'are truly divine. The Flourless Triple Chocolate Cake is other worldly. And, it is not expensive.

For about a year I have been driving by The River and kept thinking that I would like to give this place a try. I was very disappointed. Service was slow and wait staff stood around even when there was a full house. Our experience started when the hostess tried to sit us at a soaking wet table because the misting system was not working right. Once we had a new table service was slow and three of four dishes were cold when then came out. Its the same owners as luLu's in Downtown Palm Springs and I have had same issue there. Don't think we will go back. Looked like most people there felt the same way. BTW they tried to sit numerous people at the bad table, no takers. Finally they had a larger party come in so they stuck them with the wet spot.
