Appetito brings the spirit of the classic Italian-American eatery to Palm Springs with great food, fun, value, and a sense of community. It's the new version of the Italian eatery with a twist just right for the neighborhood and Palm Springs, located at the corner of East Palm Canyon Drive at South El Camino Real, across from the Ace Hotel.

With a menu that includes house-made fresh pasta, salads, panini, focaccia pizza, and a small, but mighty wine-beer-cocktail selection, this Cal-Italian menu uses seasonal and local California produce and ingredients whenever possible to complement imported Italian staples.

Dining is casual at Appetito, with orders taken at a counter and guests selecting their own indoor or outdoor table to enjoy their meal. The bar menu at Appetito is equally unique with its Negroni bar featuring variations of the classic Italian cocktail made with Campari, signature cocktails and a selection of beers and wines on tap.

Appetito will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 am to 10 pm & Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 11 pm (subject to change). For further information, follow us on

Patrick Service
Managing Partner

Palm Springs native son Patrick Service has grown up in the restaurant business. His grandparents, Florencio and Maria Delgado, founded Las Casuelas in downtown Palm Springs over 55 years ago.

Las Casuelas restaurants have a long and proud heritage rooted in multiple generations of Delgado family cooking. The recipes come originally from Mazatlan, Mexico — a rich, culinary city known for steaming street food and bustling open-air restaurants. His mother, Patty Delgado Service, is the owner of Las Casuelas Terraza, which opened in 1979 to wide acclaim and awards for architecture, food and service. With two outdoor patios, high arched ceilings and world-class Mexican food, Terraza remains one of the most popular culinary destinations in the Coachella Valley.
