Italian
From the classic Italian music to the candlelit tables, the nostalgic atmosphere at Johnny Costa’s Ristorante feels like traveling back to midcentury times. It’s no wonder Frank Sinatra was once a regular at this fine Italian restaurant, which has been honored by Palm Springs Life as best Italian restaurant for 10 consecutive years. The Costa family continues the legacy of late chef-owner Johnny Costa, who was pals with Sinatra when he moved to Hollywood from New York in the 1960s, and a decade later served as the singer’s personal chef at his desert home. Costa’s pedigree lives on in his legendary recipes, including his classic cioppino. Open for dinner at 5 p.m. Closed Sunday & Monday

    Always a favorite for Italian food. Service was excellent, our entrees ordered, Chicken Parm and Chicken Marsala, were delightful. Patrons are never rushed, which makes for an exceptional evening.

    The service and food were excellent. The only negative was not the restaurant, but another party bringing a young child to dinner way too late. The child was screaming and the parents did nothing. The staff was looking at them to do something with their child.
