Trilussa is a Cathedral City staple for us and has excellent Italian food. Having tried many things on the menu from menu including the pizza, pasta and mussels and sand dabs. Everything is fresh and delicious and the service is great. This the sister restaurant of Sammy G's in Palm Springs, but we prefer it here because it is not touristy and mainly has a local clientele. Be aware that it's highly advised that you make a reservations when in season and the snowbirds are back. You will probably not be able to get in without one.
I disagree with the other reviewer. I have grown up eating at Nicolino's since they started in PS. If you are lucky enough to go on a night when they offer clam chowder DO NOT PASS IT UP! They use clams not potatoes to fill you up. Their Alfredo sauce is great and love they white pizza. I do agree about the garlic bread being a little bland but try their Nani's with garlic and cheese baked over it! Wish I was there right now.
Think of going to your Momma's and she makes what you want! The flavor, the aroma, the taste of home! And a price that you can totally live with! He may not be Momma... But Alberto cooks like her and his wife waits on you... Pretty darn close to home... And you don't have to do the dishes.
