In the beautiful city of Palm Desert, California, Pizzeria Villagio Italian Kitchen delivers a menu of Italian-American favorites.
Pizzeria Villagio first opened its doors in 2011, celebrating its seminal, pizza-centric, concept with the Coachella Valley. Over the years, Pizzeria Villagio has attracted a wonderfully broad array of guests and palates. Today, we continue this evolution with our new menu featuring beautiful Neapolitan-style pizzas along with many other Italian-American standards and the addition of our flame-roasted Rotisserie dishes.

Villagio Italian Kitchen Announces Bicycle Poolside Delivery Service
Local Restaurant Launches Innovative Environmentally-Friendly Way to Serve Visitors
Villagio Italian Kitchen has partnered with local hotels which do not offer their own restaurants to introduce poolside delivery to guests – pedaling pizza and other Italian favorites to the Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites nearby via a custom delivery bicycle.
The delivery service is promoted at the hotels’ pool areas on large stanchion signs which refer guests to the restaurant’s website or the front desk for menus. Orders can be called in at (760) 779-5050. Bike delivery allows for expedited delivery times, and is environmentally friendly.
“We know how hungry tourists can get spending the day at the pool, so we thought this would be a real win-win – especially for our neighboring hotels that don’t have their own dining services on property,” said Steven Gilfenbain, owner of Villagio Italian Kitchen. “We believe we’re the only restaurant offering delivery service via bicycle in the Coachella Valley, so it’s a unique way for us to boost our business, as well.”
Poolside delivery on the Villagio Italian Kitchen delivery bicycle is a pilot program, and the restaurant hopes to be able to expand it to other hotels and businesses in the corridor of Cook Street between Frank Sinatra and Gerald Ford. Because the Palm Desert campuses of UC Riverside and Cal State San Bernardino are also located near the restaurant, Gilfenbain sees opportunity for expanded bike delivery to college students, as well.
“It’s great to have the Palm Desert Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites on board for this venture,” said Paul Vega, General Manager of Villagio Italian Kitchen. “And they’re excited. They see the value in what we bring to their guest experience, while continuing to support our restaurant. We get a number of orders from hotel employees, as well.”
Opening its doors in 2011, Villagio Italian Kitchen serves up authentic Italian classics, Neapolitan-style pizzas, salads, flame-roasted Rotisserie and a hearty array of appetizers. The restaurant underwent a renovation in late 2015 offering two different experiences – a New York pizzeria theme on one side, and chic modern décor on the other side with a full bar at the restaurant’s core. Villagio also features a party room that seats 36, and offers catering services. The restaurant is open daily at 11:00 a.m. for lunch and dinner, with Happy Hour from 4:00-6:00 p.m. daily except Wednesdays which feature All Night Happy Hour.
