We enjoy visiting this restaurant when we are in the Palm Springs area. Nothing fancy - just good food and service. The staff always seems so happy, well trained and knows the food. The quality and prices of the food are very good. We have tried the salads, fish, pizza and other options. All really good.

First bad experience with Papa Dans. Did a takeout on 15 Feb at 6 PM. When I got home with my Sausage Canneloni with red sauce it looked a little bit smaller than usual in the container. (Like it was shrunk up.) Opened it up and tried to cut it with a fork...no luck. Tried to cut it with a... More

We decided to have pizza for Valentine's Day while vacationing. We ordered Papa Dan's special. It was the worst pizza I have ever tasted. It literally had no sauce. I researched ahead, but got taken on this one. Worst Valentine meal in our 43 years together. Pizza was below a 1 on the review scale.

We had just arrived in town and looking for a place to eat. Found this little gem tucked in a strip mall. Warm bread soothed our rumbling stomachs until our pizza came. Pizza was very tasty. Flavorful, crisp crust and top-notch toppings. Now I want to try the pasta dishes.

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
