My husband and I bought a home in Palm Springs about two years ago and despite a lot of comments on this site about how PS is a "culinary wasteland" with mostly mediocre eateries, we've found quite a few spots we absolutely love including Johannes, Copley's, Davey's, El Mirasol, Matchbox, and Cheekys.
However, we haven't had much luck with Italian restaurants. We tried Al Dente and Johnny Costa's over a year ago, and didn't love either of them. A few months ago we tried Sammy G's and found it average and overpriced. My dad is coming for a visit this weekend from the East Coast for two weeks. I know he'll want at least a couple of Italian meals. Any good spots anyone can recommend? Elsewhere in the Valley is fine. I've also heard about a place called Bella Luna in Cathedral City that's supposed to have homemade pastas. Anyone been?
Or have other ideas?
