Chapelli’s Italian Restaurant is your favorite neighborhood place. It’s an original, locally owned, friendly restaurant and bar – an established beloved fixture in La Quinta.
You are our friend, whether you are local residents or seasonal visitors. 

You’ll love our homemade style recipes, with many mainstays and an ever evolving “ask what’s new” surprise (when our talented proprietor is inspired to create a fresh new dish).

For many of you reading this, it will be your first visit here with us and we simply offer a warm welcome. For so many others that have dined and supported us over the past 16 years, we offer a sincere welcome back and thank you for your support. Chapelli’s is pleased to be open for our 16th season. It has been a challenging few years for everyone and anybody who doesn’t admit that is either very lucky, brilliant or “full of beans” as my grandmother from Vermont would say.

No matter what ‘challenges” we have all faced in both our personal lives or in business…it is my belief that it is a wise person who stops to “take inventory”
and constantly strives for improvement.

It is not a hard exercise and there is nothing to lose with the exception of a little hard-headed pride. The simple fact of the matter is we ALL have things to be grateful for and a little humility goes a long way. How does this relate to this restaurant…that’s easy.
Chapelli’s has and always will offer an excellent quality homemade dinner served by courteous friendly people. We try our best to take nothing for granted and have made many improvements to the menu, quality and service each season.
We hope that your evening here with us is exceptional. Relax, enjoy your family and friends and remember….a little kindness goes a very long way. I can only speak for myself when I say I have learned a few valuable lessons over these past few years…“less is more and life is short”
Keep it simple…put your phones away, visit with your family and friends and have a great time!
“Thank you for your patronage and support!”
