Cathedral City Dining

The Original Nicolino’s Italian Restaurant

This traditional Italian restaurant is a Cathedral City favorite offering a traditional menu of pizza, pastas, oven-baked classics, and more with the proud distinction of being longest-standing Italian restaurant in Coachella Valley, serving the area since 1969.


Prepared in classic Mediterranean style with a California twist, this quaint enduring restaurant serves up fresh seafood daily and features an oyster bar and outdoor dining. Shrimp, scallops, lobster, and bouillabaisse are just some of the mainstay menu items that loyal patrons rave about.

India Oven

Samosas, tandoori, and curry are just some of the traditional Indian fare you’ll find on the menu at this family-run restaurant in the Coachella Valley. Premium wines, Indian beer, and a nice selection of domestic ones too are on hand should some of the dishes skew high on the spice scale.

Tony’s Burgers

The popular café offers hamburgers, hot dogs, breakfast food, and more serving a pile-high burger considered the “best in town.” Their take on the All-American classic includes adding a blend of Mexican and American flavors. This self-proclaimed “burger joint” is in the heart of the city servicing Cathedral City and the Coachella Valley.
