My wife and dined here earlier this year and had a incredible time. Although the restaurant itself was difficult to find, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. This place is expensive, but in my opinion worth every dollar. Overall we both had a wonderful time and look forward to returning again when we are in the area.

My wife and I recently enjoyed dinner at Il Palio. We had heard good things about it and wanted to give it a try. Although it was a 40 minute ride from our home, it was worth the trip! The location is near an office building complex and although not in a typical retail location, it was convenient to Rt.... More

Met a friend for lunch, it was delightful once I found it!! Not sure why such a posh restaurant is plopped between two corporate office buildings. There is a small sign but if you miss it (I did) you can ride around in circles looking for it. Once located, it was now my job to find a parking spot--not easy... More

I had never eaten downstairs and was concerned it might feel like a basement. On the contrary, it was absolutely beautiful..like a winter wonderland. Floor to ceiling glass, snow outside surrounding us, and the lights on the trees were lit. Halibut and Salmon enters were cooked perfectly. We were happy with the appetizers and desserts. Definitely will be back.

Wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff, attentive service but some issues with the meal. Wine choices were excellent by the way. Started with fried calamari app- GREASY. I had the jumbo shrimp with linguine and asparagus and was sorely disappointed. The flavor was there but asparagus was sliced paper thin, maybe 4 slices max, and looked more like a herb addition it... More
