Sammy G's Tuscan Grill Restaurant Review

: Dining at Sammy G’s is like sharing a meal with a very well connected friend. People seem to know one another, regulars are overheard ordering their favorite dishes, and talk centers around desert living. Its prime downtown location, in the heart of the Palm Springs action, offers an enviable destination, complete with an umbrella-laden patio. The menu is a marriage of traditional Italian fare and California cuisine, seen in the Southwest “broken” crostini, a tossed salad combining fresh tomato, avocado, bacon, roasted corn, black beans and red onion with a honey-mustard dressing. Gnocchi tends to be more conventional, served in a veil of tomato basil sauce or silky pesto sauce. Mix-and-match pastas allow guests to select their noodle and preferred sauce, which pair nicely with the selection of Chianti and domestic wines. Carnivores will like the veal, beef and poultry, while seafood lovers can sample sand dabs or grilled salmon. As the week inches to a close, the strains of live music and rattling cocktail shakers can be heard echoing from the lounge.
