I discovered La Bella Roma, a family-operated restaurant tucked in a corner of a strip mall off Ramon Road in Cathedral City (near Palm Springs). The correct use of herbs makes it a pleasure to try the spaghetti, mostaccioli, rigatoni or linguine. La Bella Roma, 68-100 Ramon Road, Suite C-2, Cathedral City; (760) 202-8181; entrees from about $10. Sheppa Vanderkleij Indio

It takes an active imagination to conjure up images of Rome while staring at the Riverside Freeway, but that is exactly what A'Roma Ristorante asks you to do. It's a tall order. Who can say an industrial park in La Palma reminds them of the Piazza di Spagna? And then there are all those trucks whizzing by overhead. They aren't heading to the Trastevere--we know that much. But once you start eating, it's easy to forget all that.
