    One of our favorite restaurants in the Palm Springs area. Food is excellent from the pastas to the veal chop. Wonderful soups and appetizers. If you want Italian, Mamma Gina is the best in the valley.

    Mama Gina's is a great Italian restaurant and has become our go-to for Italian food in a town where there are many options. The Caprese salad was so fresh, the seafood pasta terrific, and the prosciutto and melon appetizer delicious and refreshing. Our server was very attentive and personable. Food wise, I will say when going to an Italian restaurant, order Italian. If you want steak or chops, go to a steak house.

    Food was not very good. Veal Osso Bucco was tough and salty, Sea Bass was thin and dry, not light and flakey. Our server was amazing and had fantastic wine suggestions.

    Food very average. Floor dirty. Everything average. I do not understand the great reviews. Mushroom risotto was good. Cannelloni just ok. Chopped salad lacks flavor.

    I've been excited to eat here since a local recommended it. Sunday night was very busy and I was surprised to see many children here. I had polenta cakes, a "Gustosa" salad and prosciutto wrapped pork chop. Overall, the quality of Italian was authentic and the taste was good. The salad was sub-par but other fare at the table was good. I would recommend going on a week night and stick to pasta dishes.

    Great experience. It’s a family favorite so much so we drive over 90 miles from Murrieta, CA.

    Excellent birthday dinner. Pretty noisy initially but quited down nicely as diners finished and left.
