Many DVdL Esteemed Members highly recommend Mario's Italian Cafes (there are several locations across the Coachella Valley) for a pretty good meal at an affordable price. You'll leave feeling satisfied. That's a good enough reason to go but there are others...
The checkered table cloths, hand-painted frescos on the walls, and authentic Italian music add to the "foreign" atmosphere which caters to the Mystery Lover's sense of the adventurous. The quaint place is just dark enough to imagine couples coming in for a tempting rendezvous or nefarious characters hatching up something sinister at the back tables. A bottle of vino and savory spegetti can get you in the mood to read a juicy book with twists and turns and romance and, of course, MURDER!
For this...Mario's has earned the DVdL Seal of Approval!
