We brought out of town guests here last weekend to enjoy a good Italian meal! We definitely chose the right place! Everything from the wine, drinks, and appetizers, to our meals was excellent! I ate the chicken dish with angel hair pasta and forest mushrooms!...More

My wife and I, our friends and colleagues have been eating here for years. It is always my wife's choice for her birthday dinner. We have eaten many of their dishes and have never been disappointed.

The food was good, not spectacular, and the serving sizes were a bit small compared to most Italian restaurants. Wine is served in a small drinking glass, not a wine glass. Front door was left open and we got pretty bothered by small flies and...More

Food was good, ambiance was great, would have loved wine if served in wine glasses.The small glass tumblers don't do justice to the wine.

Description
Previous Next Authentic Tuscan Dishes Born in September of 1991, Palio is a country-style, Italian restaurant featuring authentic Tuscan dishes. Named for the famous horse race that runs yearly through Siena, Italy, a record is even kept of the race's winners on a mural along the back dining room wall. During summer, Palio boasts Ann Arbor's largest and most popular outdoor gathering spot on its rooftop patio - Palio Del Sole. Offering the best view of Ann Arbor's energetic downtown nightlife, Palio Del Sole is fully equipped with its own cucina and offers a unique menu that is completely different from Palio downstairs. There simply is no better Al Fresco dining experience on a warm summer evening in Ann Arbor.
