    Castelli’s always delivers on food and service. The bar is well stocked and my food and drinks were yummy. This time I ordered the shrimp scampi dish. Loved it! The shrimps were big and cooked perfectly.

    We absolutely love castelli’s. It is by far the best Italian restaurant in the desert. Service, ambiance, food, all first class. The wait staff is very attentive and the food selections are all authentic. Our number one place to go ❤️

    Was recommended by a friend. Food and service was outstanding. Only loud because it was packed and everyone having a great time and conversing. Just a little too dark inside but if that’s your vibe it would be a 5! Price on target if you are looking for quality food and service-I highly recommend!

    Nice local italian restaurant. Food was good but not great. We ordered veal parm, was ultra thin and loaded with garlic in the sauce. I like garlic but it seemed a bit iver the top… The sauce itself was just “ok”. I have had way better. There are alot of choices for Italian restaurants in Palm Desert and I would recommend checking out a different one. I will say this… the garlic bread they provide on the table was excellent…

    We ordered a bottle of wine that initially had a funny smell-we figured it was the glass that had likely been cleaned with a sour rag.. (when a rag is left wet it can turn sour). Mr Server had an attitude of denial instead of accepting our response. Not impressed and I have been dining at Castellis for 30 years when I’m local. Didn’t appreciate his lack of attendance.
