Next time you go to Desert Hot Springs, CA take the opportunity to dine at the Capri Restaurant now located at the Miracle Springs Resort and Spa, 10625 Palm Drive in Desert Hot Springs. Chef Anthony Santucci is known for his passion for honoring old family favorite recipes while bringing new culinary trends to the restaurant’s new home. I was there just a few weeks ago – and they were VERY busy on a weeknight. There’s a good reason for that …whatever it is that you order, you can be assured of deliciousness served perfectly. The service was attentive and the atmoshphere was relaxing. The restaurant is open Sundays through Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday’s from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
