Il Corso - Palm Springs
Jose was wonderful !! Attentive and excellent customer service
IL Corso took great advantage of the plaza they share with The Hotel Rowan for Alfresco dining. Seeing a lively downtown atmosphere, among palms with misters while imbibing on a good selection of wine and chowing down Northern Italian fare done well; looks and feels like (we had osso bucco) ... well Palm Springs as it should be. The service is attentive and trained to a certain standard. Given the woes of the pandemic, this is a quite nice respite, indeed. We will come back
Hmm... mixed reviews. Those in our party that ordered the salmon were very impressed. We were underwhelmed however by the margarita pizza and lasagna. The service was excellent. The drinks were good. Not sure we would return though... there are much better Italian restaurants in the area that have better food for less....
Service was top-notch. Wine prices were ‘reasonable.’ The bread with the aioli tapenade was unbelievably delicious. Dinner entree couldn’t have been more perfect! (Risoto) Wife’s spaghetti w/ marinara was equally terrific! Recommend highly!
Great service although the server should have noticed lasagne was burnt and not serve it. Other dishes were bland. Outside seating only because of Covid so was very hot. They need to install misters.
Dining in their patio during COVID made life better for the 2 hours we were there. Everything from the service to food was perfect. Thank you to the owners and team at Il Corso for staying open during this horrible moment in our history. It broke our hearts to see your restaurant indoor dining shut down, but I know that when we can resume our lives everyone that you serve now will always be your loyal customers and your business will once again boom!
Jesus was an excellent server. The food was very good and the wine prices were very fair.
Usually love the food. This time we had the veal. Very very mediocre.
Service was very good. Fans very noisy.
It was a Birthday dinner and it was disappointing.
Food and wine is perfect. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and wine also.
Wait staff were very accommodating and pleasant. The food was served at the perfect temperature.
Nice birthday celebration for a special sister.
Lambchops were superb, service was impeccable
It is very pretty and nice atmosphere. Great service, but food is VERY average. Calamari was good (marinara was super spicy) and burrata app was below average. Beet salad was average. The greens and goat cheese were good, but barely dressed and the actual beets were way too soft. Meatballs/sausage app was odd. We both had to ask each other if there was a sausage in the dish. They said 4 meatballs and 1 sausage. 🤔 Tiny meatballs and just average sauce. The wine list by the glass is underwhelming to say the least. Wish it was better b/c it is lovely inside and very clean.
Great food, great service! This is the second time there. Great experiences both times.
Our meal and service were average. No specials. Some standbys removed from the menu. Understandable during the pandemic. Lovely atmosphere but pricey.
So glad to be able to get out with friends again. Glad one of our favorite spots is open!
Nice food and service. Happy to see restaurants back in business. Good luck with the reopening.
We went all the way there and they were closed
With seating restrictions (social distancing) in place due to COVID 19, the restaurant did a fabulous job of keeping the comfortable feel of the space. Service was excellent, as our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. My calamari starter was fantastic, followed by a branzino entree that was prepared perfectly. The rest of our table (a total of 4 of us) were all happy with their entrees as well. Would definitely recommend Il Corso!
Food, service, wine, ambiance - all excellent. The Chef, Claudio, is a delight and let us know happy hour was on and brought us the HH menus. That does not always happen in restaurants. I've had to ask if there is a happy hour at times.
Great dining in experience and equally enjoyable take-out during COVID-19 crisis. High quality, delicious food.
We had a party of six at Il Corso a couple of days ago. We all ordered pasta dishes and each one was just excellent. The service was prompt and un-intrusive. The room is very nice...contemporary but very comfortable. My only nit with the entire experience is that my panzanella salad was a bit drab with a mediocre crouton.
But overall we highly recommend it and we will be back again soon.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Our server, Raina, was great!!
The food was fantastic! We live in New York City and have access to wonderful Italian restaurants and Il Corso stands out!
Experienced the worst service at any restaurant in a long time.
Our waiter was so disrespectful...
Tried to order appetizer first ,, but was told if we didn’t have our salads with it , we would have to wait a long time..
Just not a good experience.
Food and service were not special- appetizer was cold. Overpriced. Food came out so quickly we were done in 50 minutes. Not ok.
Excellent authentic Italian cooking with professional, European level service. Portions were excellent (a course not a meal). Was a little noisy.
My filet mignon was delicious. Drinks were very good and the wine selection very nice. I'd definitely return. I thought it was going to be exorbitantly expensive because you have 4 Dollar signs on it, but it was really very typically priced for PSP upscale dining. They have a terrifically priced happy hour in the bar from 4pm to 7pm, by the way. (almost hate to let that be broadly known.... :-) The only thing is I had marked on our reservation that it was for a special occasion. (I was celebrating retirement.) Our server never acknowledged it or inquired about it. Oh well.
Disappointing wine by the glass list...hoping for more Italian wines!
This was our first visit to Il Corso and we will return. We took three out of town guests there for dinner and we were all impressed with the food, the ambiance and particularly with the service. The staff, especially our server, Jesus, were friendly and professional. Four of the five opted for pasta dishes and they were wonderful. The fifth person chose a steak and he was impressed. Prices, particularly for pasta dishes were quite reasonable.
Special Dover Sole was overcooked and bit fishy. Husband's salmon was way overcooked. Soup was not hot and had to send it back.
Food was good
Our server was good
The manager would not take a gift card we received as a gift. He said it had to be used at the other location in Palm Desert / I asked if they were both owned by the same people and he said yes but it was bought at the other location ???
I’ll warn my friends not to buy gift cards and I’ll never go back !!
Please accept our apologies, clearly our staff did not inform you properly. The Gift Card you had is from an older system which unfortunately it does not work on both locations as the new system we currently share does. Your Gift Card does not loose value and it can be still used at our location in Palm Desert. Our new restaurant system could not read the stripe on your card therefore we could not establish its current value. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience.
This is the first time I write a bad review but there were too many issues not to warn future gullible customers like ourselves. We decided to dine at Il Corso because it was literally next to our hotel The Rowan. From the time of arrival the service was highly disappointing. The hostess didn’t even want to seat us in the main floor even though we were on time for our reservation, further she claimed that it was full. I have her an indignant look and she quickly took us to the side of the main salon where there were actually not one but three available tables. After waiting for 15 minutes there was no waiter in sight and not even water or bred so I started demanding a menu. To make the story short the waiter didn’t even understand that I wanted a small taste of two wines and brought just one. My son’s Bolognese pasta was watery and my “special”, a parpadelle with with shrimp was overloaded with capers and way overpriced at $30. As far as the recommended tiramisu it was nothing special either. The layer of sponge cake or lady fingers was also watery and could have used a stronger espresso flavor. I do not mind paying $$$ fior a good authentic Italian meal but I was in major shock when I paid $150 for a very underwhelming dinning experience. Please do not fall for the grandeur of this restaurant that doesn’t match the quality of it’s food.
We find the food great. But our waiter hovered and we felt rushed. We have had him two or 3 times and every time, its like get in and get out.
Made a reservation for my wife’s birthday. Noted it on the reservation, but it was ignored. Seated on bar side, nice table but with a hockey game on a big tv. Not so great. Restaurant is pretty big and our waiter had tables on both sides. He was ok, but constantly in motion. Asked how we were enjoying everything, but in motion when he said it as he was walking across to the other side. Never actually stopped.
First Lasagna was burnt
Second time around no better
Asked for no sauce on Veal.. got sauce
Pasta was dry with shrimp like it had been sitting
Wine was great as we had a bottle so they could no harm to it
We love your restaurant. Salmon was perfectly prepared. Not overcooked. Chicken was in a delicious sauce. Large drinks well prepared and served fast. Most of all we appreciate the great job our waiter did delivering personal and prompt service. Can’t remember his name, but mustache that curled up. He’s the reason guests keep coming back.
Tables are too close to one another. Pasta was undercooked. Great location. Nicely decorated and place to go with friends
Woefully understaffed. Host did a great job pitching in, but server was MIA most of the time. Management should have been prepared for a good sized lunch crowd on Sunday during Modernism Week and before a holiday. Major fail.
Really terrible service. Second visit and both times bad service
