We eat here often and have a few favorites but our most recent visit was Chicken Picatta over Angel Hair, and my husband had Salmon with Rice Pilaf and Fresh veggies. We were both very happy with our meals! The Chicken Piccata was SO good! Lots of capers that were sautéed almost crisp, very tasty! We will be back!

The rooms and hotel are outdated. The shower smelled of mold yet the room smelled of bleach. I had to leave the room for an hour . The hotel is in need of updates .

My son ordered the 16-oz filet and our jaws dropped when we saw the size of it! Also, it was cooked to a perfect medium rare as ordered. I ordered the smaller cut and we were both impressed with the tenderness and flavor. The side dinner salad add-on was also great. We won't bother driving into Palm Springs for our... More

Enjoyed having an Italian restaurant close to the spa area. I thought the food was good but not great. Probably will drive into Palm Springs for better options next time. I did find the staff pleasant and efficient.

The Capri Restaurant is situated in the Miracle Springs Resort & Spa Hotel on Palm Drive (the main drag for shopping) in north Desert Hot Springs. You enter the hotel and reception areas for the hotel and spa and, to the far left is a pleasant open-space Italian restaurant. The restaurant also has a full sit-up bar with bartender service....

The Capri was a high point of our stay. The bartenders, especially Kym, were friendly and provided great customer service. We had breakfast and several dinners at the Capri and all our food was wonderful.

Hubby and I visited during our stay in DHS. I ordered one of the chicken dishes recommended by our waitress Kim. My husband had the tortellini. Both were generous servings and very nice dishes. The restaurant was very busy but our waitress did a very good job. Definitely recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Desert Hot Springs.
