Make sure to find a spot with an umbrella. But dinner on the roof of Palio's is one of the pleasures of Ann Arbor eating. We split chicken and had two side salads with it. We'll do that again!

Palio is the perfect place to go on a Beautiful day where you can sit upstairs on their rooftop deck. The service is excellent and the food outstanding. We had a lovely bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, split two appetizers—Asiago al Forno and Polpette Con Salsa...More

I've always liked this place even though some say it doesn't quite rise to the level of its sister restaurants, Real Seafood, Gratzi's or the Chop House across the street and next door. I don't go here for seafood or steak (even though they are...More

Palio has been on the corner of Main and Williams forever, and is a good place for basic Italian food. Nothing fancy, but tasty and recommended.

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.
