Sammy G’s Tuscan Grill is located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs and near some of the city’s most quaint shops and hotels.

Established in 2009, Sammy G’s has recently opened for Sammy's weekend Brunch and lunch with an innovative menu, blending traditional Italian with California cuisine. Take a break from shopping and dine al fresco for lunch on the newly renovated patio and soak up the gorgeous desert weather, or venture inside and be transported to Tuscany with the restaurant’s rustic charm.

Dinner becomes a casual yet elegant event, and traditional Italian favorites mixed with updated classics are on the menu. A semi-private room is available for family gatherings or business events.

On Thursday through Saturday nights, the Sammy G’s Lounge becomes an energetic yet intimate place to meet up with friends and dance the night away to live music and enjoy Sammy G’s signature cocktails.

    We had the Chicken Carciofi and the Ribeye and both were delicious (but the chicken was better). The Palm Springs Mule was very refreshing. Service was outstanding.

    Everything we ordered was delicious. The noise level was a little too loud due to a couple screaming kids. But overall is good. The service was outstanding. Our server Cesar was very attentive and got all the details of our orders. The other serving staff was also very good such as food delivering and clearing the table, and etc. We brought two friends for their first time and they were quite impressed as well.

    Sammy Gs is definitely one our favorite dining spots whenever we’re in Palm Springs. The atmosphere is incredible, food and live music are always on point. So we make it a point to hit up Sammy Gs at least once per visit whenever we are in town!!! If you haven’t been to Sammy Gs and you like Italian food then you are definitely missing out!

    This is our favorite restaurant in Palm Springs, we’ve been coming here for 3 yrs now and no disappointment. The ambience is romantic, the service is great and the food is delicious. We had the filet mignon cooked perfectly with the creamy mushroom Sauce. The spinach ravioli and chicken Marsala are so good! Good wine and the complimentary amaretto is a great ending to a beautiful dinner.

    Noise was unbearable for the first half of the meal with unsupervised children running and screaming with nobody trying to encourage some order or quiet. The food was from a specials menu . This was good quality and ok value . The service was like an Olympic event. If you looked like you were to put your cutlery down the clearing waiter pounced . Hardly relaxing.. There were dishes that you added $$’s to that included cheesecake at $3 extra . My wife asked if she could have a scoop of ice cream with it . Yes certainly. Good came . It was nice … The bill came and to our astonishment there was a charge of $4 for a scoop. We were absolutely shocked . Overall experience was very poor yet the food was quite fair

    Been going here for years, back before there was outside dining. Have never had a meal I didn’t enjoy. The only sad note was that they were out of sand dabs. So, we r with the carpaccio instead. Just as good.

    This was always my favorite destination however things have changed. Our food arrived before our waiter brought our drinks (bottomless champagne) and our drinks often went dry. Also, our requests for ice went unanswered because the champagne was warm. I am saddened by this change.

    We got there early and had the covered patio to ourselves. Great food. Delicious. Great service. I had the Eggplant Parm with penne marinara on the side and upgraded to include asparagus and roasted potato as well. Had the Apple crisp for dessert which was also very good. My aunt enjoyed her Mediterranean salad and strawberry ice cream. Great end to a great day!

    We were very disappointed for several reasons. 1. There were 3 of us who each ordered caesar salads which were good but arrived late. 2. The entrees arrived when we were only halfway through our salads so we asked for them to come after we finished. The waiter told us that they will make us new orders. 3. When they brought out the order it tasted as if all the kitchen had done was put them in a warmer. My gnocchi was cold, chewy and tough. One friend's vegetables were cold. 4. On a positive note, the bread was very good as well as the wine selection. Unfortunately, we will not be returning.

    We came for my birthday dinner and everything was amazing! The service, food, and ambience were top notch. We shared the cauliflower ceviche bruschetta which was surprisingly really good. My husband had the filet mignon and I had the chicken piccata. We were too stuffed to enjoy dessert which I regret but overall we had a delightful experience.

    4 of us were there for restaurant week.....we had the salmon which was excellently done, as well as the salads and the calamari and steak. Generous portion of calamari as it was only an appetizer. The Tiramisu was delicious. The biscotti with a little glass of liqueur (gratis) was a very nice touch to end the meal. Our only negative would be that the noise level inside was quite loud. We will return but only to sit on the patio, which is lovely!

    This was our first time at this restaurant, upon a recommendation from a friend. It was pretty warm and so we opted to take a table inside. Humberto was our server, and he was excellent! We split a wedge salad, and had spinach ravioli and lasagna. Both were excellent! Good sized servings, in fact, we each took home some! When the weather is a bit cooler, try out the courtyard seating- it looked very inviting!

    We have heard great things about Sammy G's, and I bet their dinner food is better than Sunday Brunch: I would recommend going to Sammy G's for dinner and trying the pasta and other food. Don't go for the pizza unless you like a bready, premade crust. The pizzas looked great, but we would not order them again. Service was fantastic, and the atmosphere is lovely.
