New La Quinta Restaurant

Slice Italia opened up on July 5th, 2022 in the old Bucatini space.

Slice Italia strives to deliver the best N.Y. Style Pizza and Italian dishes in a casual and fun atmosphere in the Coachella Valley. Slice Italia is the best of both worlds! They combine a New York pizzeria with a full-service, full-menu Italian restaurant. Slice Italia is the place to come for a quick slice, salad, or sandwich during your lunch break or to bring the family for dinner to order off of their “Build Your Own” pasta menu where the possibilities are endless. With flat-screen TVs throughout the restaurant and located right next to the movie theaters, Slice Italia is the place to come for a bite before the movies or to watch your favorite sports teams play.
Michael and I stopped in on Wednesday, and they had a decent crowd, lots of staff on the floor, and our favorite chef, Nina, on the line. Nina has been there since it was Bucatini, and we were delighted to see her.
The menu has a good selection of salads, heroes, pasta, seafood, and chicken dishes, along with a few things that seem odd for an Italian place such as Fish & Chips, Fish Tacos, Pulled Pork Sandwich, and an All American Burger, but if it works, it works. They have another location in Rancho Mirage, so it’s not their first rodeo.

I had the Pesto Cream + Chicken featuring ziti pasta, pesto cream, chicken breast, and mozzarella. It was outstanding! It was a very generous portion, and I took half of it home. It was just as good the next day.
Michael had the Cajun Shrimp Pasta made with cheese tortellini, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes in a cajun cream sauce. None of his made it home!

We had a couple of glasses of the Conundrum Red and it was very reasonably priced.
We are really pleased to see what seems like it will be a great neighborhood restaurant take over the Bucatini space, and we are looking forward to going back again soon to check out more of the menu.
