Good Italian eatery. Friendly, local atmosphere. Many neighborhood residents were either having a drink at the bar, or eating dinner. Service good. Full menu and bar. Casual dress.

We eat here often. The bar is friendly for couples and the other rooms are very family friendly. The food is true Vermont Italian. Don't expect nouvelle cuisine. Wonderful down home cooking, very pleasant atmosphere and people. Cheryl

The Palms serves very good Italian food at a reasonable price. We took my 87 year-old mother there with her walker and they were extremely accommodating. The lasagna was excellent, as was the garlic bread, and the wine was actually good and authentically Tuscan. We...More
