We walked up to this restaurant while visiting Village Fest, and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We scored a table on the outside patio right by the front, which was great for people watching. A speaker above us piped in Italian music at a volume that still allowed for easy conversation. The wine list had a wide variety of choices,... More

We had planned to eat at Bill's Pizza but there was an hour wait. We wandered down the block and around the corner and found Kalura. We were in luck because someone who had made a reservation didn't show up so we got their table. The tables were so close together that we felt like we were dining with the... More

Absolutely, positively the poster restaurant in Palm Springs for poor food and bad service. The past was over cooked, basting in a watery sauce. The glass of wine ordered didn't come until after the main course was served (after a reminder). The waiter didn't check on the table until it was time for dessert (and we were definitely ready for... More

Kalura is a popular Italian restaurant located about half way between north and south Palm Canyon Dr. on the main tourist strip in downtown Palm Springs, CA. It is perfectly situated to take advantage of the busy weekend and Thursday’s Villagefest. (Villagefest is an outdoor market on Palm Canyon Dr. where they close off six or so blocks every Thursday...

We had dinner here last night. Very boring Caprese salad, terrible melon wrapped in prosciutto. Melon was rock hard and prosciutto was cheap, flavourless and stringy. Really pathetic pasta carbonara. Service was very good but it was a very poor meal.

Service was ok but my wife's seafood dish had very little seafood in it. My spaghetti dish was fair, but they don't have bathrooms and you have to get a key from the hostess and walk down an alley to use a very dirty restroom. Not pleasant.

Small sidewalk bistro/cafe which we picked yesterday for a light lunch and drinks. Nice location to sit and watch the foot traffic parade. There are NO restrooms, please go to toffee shop and use unisex room with no paper. Tenderloin salad was slightly overcooked but tasty. Service was very good. Bruchetta was a bit tough and tomatoes all fell off... More

This restaurant is a favorite of ours in Palm Springs. We come here every time we visit the city. This time on our vacation we actually came twice mainly because of a female Italian singer from Rome who entertained us while we dined. She sang in Italian mostly but knew a lot of Dean Martin songs that we loved and... More

My wife had crab cake salad - just ok, and i had a prosciutto panini on ciabatta - the ciabatta was tasteless, the prosciutto was bland and the cheese a rubbery mass. We also had a piña colada each which came with a big dollop of a creamy substance that was quite unnecessary and added nothing to the flavour. The... More

We felt this restaurant was pretty much so-so. Our pasta dishes were greasy and the taste was nothing special. They do have a nice outdoor seating area where you can watch the show pass you by on the downtown sidewalk. Service was ok and we felt the menu was nothing to rave about.
