We love this restaurant. The food is consistently very good. The service is also top notch. I usually have a chicken dish and have never been disappointed. Reservations recommended in season.

We've eaten at Chapelli's many times and the one thing is that they are consistent, in service, menu choices and quality. The prices include a house salad and a bread pudding in addition to the menu, which weighs heavily in old family style Italian choices....More

Chapellis is an ideal Italian Restaurant in my mind, incorporating intimate size, good food, friendly service and nice decor. Pretty sure there are not 19 better restaurants in La Quinta. Chapel is should be rated among the top five - if not #1.

Chapelli's is a 4.5 and sometimes a 5 in my book. We had one meal that was not outstanding at our dinner (party of 5). We go to Chapelli's every time we are in the desert. The service is always professional and the food outstanding....More
