About Us

Our Story

Introducing "Palmina by Puglia Italian Restaurant" in Palm Springs, where the enchanting flavors of Southern Italy blend seamlessly with the charm of passion. Hailing from the picturesque region of Puglia, our restaurant brings an authentic taste of traditional Italian cuisine and exquisite Primitivo wines to your table, offering an unforgettable dining experience.

Our journey began in Lake Arrowhead, CA, where our first location took root and flourished, captivating locals and visitors alike with its warm hospitality and soulful dishes. Palmina was born out of my mother's culinary passion and fond memories of her kitchen, inspiring me to embark on this flavorful venture and share the rich heritage of Puglian cuisine with the world.

At Palmina, we take pride in crafting each dish with love, using locally-sourced ingredients and time-honored recipes passed down through generations. From homemade pasta and savory braciola to delightful finger foods that evoke the essence of Italy, our menu reflects the essence of Puglian gastronomy.

Join us at Palmina, where the essence of Puglia meets the heart of California, and let our flavors transport you to the sun-kissed shores of Southern Italy with every delightful bite and sip. Buon Appetito!
