Le Vallauris is an upscale and elegant restaurant, ideal for a date or other nice dining experiences.

Limo service at Parker Hotel in Palm Springs, CaliforniaRanked the second-most-romantic restaurant by TripAdvisor and the fourth-most by USA Today, Copley’s On Palm Canyon is another ideal place for romantic date by limousines. This uptown restaurant is located right on N. Palm Canyon Drive and offers beautiful outdoor garden-seating.

Limo services in Palm DesertLa Spiga Ristorante Italiano in Palm Desert was named Palm Springs’ second-most romantic restaurant by USA Today. Located in the popular El Paseo Village of Palm Desert, El Ristorante is as Italian as it gets with its owner having immigrated of Sicily. So imagine an authentic Italian restaurant with beautiful views of surrounding mountains, romantic music and great dining. Most ingredients are also picked on the surrounding garden, as well as offsite local farms. Some must tries here include their wild mushrooms, cream noodles or their fresh Italian pork sausages. You can also come here for great wine-tasting, mostly Italian- and Californian varietals.
