About this Business
From Our Editors
Mark and Rhonda Nicolino, the owners of Nicolino's Italian Restaurant, have a passion for tradition. Five of their waiters have been setting tables and taking orders here for more than 15 years. Visitors might even meet more than one of them during the course of a meal—Nicolino's servers work without assigned sections, and instead spread their attention throughout a dining area lined with old paintings and family photos.
Mark and Rhonda also want guests to taste their family history: nearly all of their time-tested recipes were handed down by Mark's father—affectionately known as "Papa"—who launched the family legacy in 1969 with a small Palm Springs delicatessen. The menu includes hand-tossed thin-crust pizzas and freshly made pasta drizzled with marinara sauce or tossed with chicken, veal, shellfish, and vegetables. Local California and imported wines allow guests to clink glasses with every home run or croquet riot broadcast on the three big-screen TVs.
