What could be better. Eat outside when you know back home it is cold. Of course, you can eat inside too. Good food - from pizza to Italian dishes and more. Nice salads. Friendly service. Good menu selection.

A quality restaurant, every time we come to Palm Desert it's our first stop. Great lasagna and pizzas. We ordered a large (for four) antipasto salad which was great but should have ordered a small. Good service and quality food at a reasonable price.

This restaurant is deceiving. It is hard to find, and once you do, it is unassuming from the outside, however, the inside is boldly decorated with the colours of Italy. It is cozy, with lovely lighting and when you step inside, it smells amazing with the smell of fresh garlic, and baked bread. I always order a pizza which is... More

Several of us met for dinner around 5:30pm. They pour a generous wine serving. I ordered a calzone which was enormous. It was easily enough for two and very delicious. Every one seemed pleased with their meal. Several ordered antipasto salads as a main course. Moderate priced at $55 for 3 glasses of wine, a pasta bowl and one calzone.... More

It didn't look like much from the outside but inside was a whole different story. Very homey and comfortable setting, the service was friendly and good, and the food was amazing. We were there early and took advantage of the Early Bird Special and had the Chicken Parmigiana which was terrific. We were sorry we hadn't discovered it earlier in... More

Ordered 5 separate piazza and salads for nephews and nieces and was happy with the outcome. Javier took the large phone order and when I arrived the entire team at Papa Dan's worked well to be sure I was on my way

We stopped by Papa Dan's on a Friday afternoon. We got there a little before 2 pm, well past the noon crunch. Our server, Fabian, was friendly and courteous. We had our choice of several tables. The decor is nice and homey. We both ordered draft beer and they arrived promptly. My wife ordered the personal pizza with mushrooms, tomatoes... More

Friendly, courteous staff; Enjoyed our "Greek" evening. Delicious Greek salad with fresh vegetables, and "Greek" pizza came to the table hot. The service was outstanding.

First let me say, if you weren't hungry when you walk in, the minute you smell the fabulous aromas, you will be! We picked up two pizzas, one regular and one gluten free...both excellent!
