The private dining room will showcase new chandeliers, new sconces, and a pop out custom backlit display featuring bottles of wine with pictures of the family. 

Founder Johnny Costa and the family have been serving authentic classic Italian Cuisine since 1976. Frank Sinatra himself was a regular at this Italian restaurant, where the chairman’s two favorite dishes – the steak Sinatra and linguine clams – are still on the menu. Steak Sinatra and linguine clams are still one of the favorites of our diners. Celebrities and locals love the Johnny Costa experience and you will too! The Costa Family is excited to carry on the legacy of founder Johnny Costa. Voted “Best Italian Restaurant” by Palm Springs Life Readers!
