Good food and nice ambience on El Paseo in Palm Desert. Food and service was done well and the menu has a nice assortment of foods from the Mediterranean region with a California flare.

The food is excellent. Pizza, appetizers and drinks. We enjoyed lunch and a few days later returned and picked up pizza and salad for home. Definitely worth a stop. Great happy Hour menu of food and drinks.

There used to be a Sammy's in Phoenix that we would go to regularly but their food quality dropped significantly and the business is too competitive to support bad food. I guess this turned out to be a systemic problem (I believe they were bought out a while back). The pizza literally tasted like store bought, cheap cheese. The salad... More
