At Palio, we are looking to provide a warm and exciting environment that makes a patron feel welcome and satisfied. We want those who come to the Palio to anticipate a fine dining experience in a comfortable setting. Our Mission is to deliver that experience with professional style and grace through the presentation of unprecedented food quality. The Palio equestrian theme derives from the infamous, centuries-old Palio di Siena horse race which began in the mid-17th century. The restaurant comfortably seats 100 upstairs and boasts a 24-seat full-service lounge at street level. Private parties up to 60 may be booked in a spacious room complete with a full bar upstairs. Most of the menu is seasonal with the spectacular wine list including many local selections. Pasta, breads and charcuterie are each prepared fresh daily in-house.

"Palio is authentic Italian, hopping bar with a jazz combo, spacious dining rooms where you could actually carry on a conversation and attentive, knowledgeable servers. The carpaccio was my favorite and at $18 didn't make me flinch because it was a good well-balanced dish. The favorite would have been the light, delicious arancini, but there were just two very small ones, about 1", per serving. That's waaay too scant for the price and doesn't present well with two itty bitty balls on the plate. C'mon! This is leftover risotto! Has a pasta dish and the branzino special both good. The star on the dessert menu was the zabaione. The zabaione sauce was velvety and a great foil to the marinated fruit and gelato. Will definitely return."
