Real Italian Cooked to Order Every Day

Welcome to Johnny Costa’s Ristorante, a Palm Springs, California locals’ choice for years.

The restaurant is known for authentically delicious Italian food, a warm nostalgic atmosphere with dark wood, soft lighting, candle – lit tables and romantic booths.

Johnny Costa, the founder, has been a chef and restaurant owner in the Palm Springs area for 40 years. He was one of the few chefs ever invited to cook for Frank Sinatra at his estate. Steak Sinatra is still one of the favorites of our diners as is another of Frank’s favorite Linguini Clams. Celebrities and locals love the Johnny Costa experience and you will too!

Enjoy great, classic, delicious Italian cuisine. Johnny’s son, Head Chef Vince Costa continues the family tradition, perfectly executing the family recipes and delighting customers with a dining experience that is amazing.
