Absolutely, positively the poster restaurant in Palm Springs for poor food and bad service. The past was over cooked, basting in a watery sauce. The glass of wine ordered didn't come until after the main course was served (after a reminder). The waiter didn't check on the table until it was time for dessert (and we were definitely ready for... More

Kalura is a popular Italian restaurant located about half way between north and south Palm Canyon Dr. on the main tourist strip in downtown Palm Springs, CA. It is perfectly situated to take advantage of the busy weekend and Thursday’s Villagefest. (Villagefest is an outdoor market on Palm Canyon Dr. where they close off six or so blocks every Thursday...

We had dinner here last night. Very boring Caprese salad, terrible melon wrapped in prosciutto. Melon was rock hard and prosciutto was cheap, flavourless and stringy. Really pathetic pasta carbonara. Service was very good but it was a very poor meal.

Service was ok but my wife's seafood dish had very little seafood in it. My spaghetti dish was fair, but they don't have bathrooms and you have to get a key from the hostess and walk down an alley to use a very dirty restroom. Not pleasant.

Small sidewalk bistro/cafe which we picked yesterday for a light lunch and drinks. Nice location to sit and watch the foot traffic parade. There are NO restrooms, please go to toffee shop and use unisex room with no paper. Tenderloin salad was slightly overcooked but tasty. Service was very good. Bruchetta was a bit tough and tomatoes all fell off... More

This restaurant is a favorite of ours in Palm Springs. We come here every time we visit the city. This time on our vacation we actually came twice mainly because of a female Italian singer from Rome who entertained us while we dined. She sang in Italian mostly but knew a lot of Dean Martin songs that we loved and... More

My wife had crab cake salad - just ok, and i had a prosciutto panini on ciabatta - the ciabatta was tasteless, the prosciutto was bland and the cheese a rubbery mass. We also had a piña colada each which came with a big dollop of a creamy substance that was quite unnecessary and added nothing to the flavour. The... More

We felt this restaurant was pretty much so-so. Our pasta dishes were greasy and the taste was nothing special. They do have a nice outdoor seating area where you can watch the show pass you by on the downtown sidewalk. Service was ok and we felt the menu was nothing to rave about.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. We did split a veal entree, and their thin shaved beef appetizer (sorry i forget the names!) The waitress was very nice. Atmosphere in the restaurant was really nice and cozy. you have to go out and around the building to the restroom though. :)

Managed to get seated quickly, water and bread/olive oil arrived quickly. Then after a while I had to ask for a waiter, when he arrived he was excellent but no apology for being ignored. We had mozzarella to start, I had gnocchi and my wife had tagliatelle crustacean, both were good but arrived a little too fast for my liking.... More
