This intimate BYOB is one that we often enjoy. The choices are many and, often, the specials are not to be missed. Service is friendly and attentive.

Nice restaurant for an occasional dinner especially on a weekend evening when there is music. Pleasant enough ambience,professional wait staff,good food. Nothing terribly special or unique best suited as a change of pace from other Montclair restaurants which are more interesting.

Atmosphere was cozy and romantic. Food was outstanding. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Live jazz on Saturday nights. Service was a bit slow. All in all, a great place.

We've been to Palazzo many times. We love the flavorful food and, on the weekends, relaxed piano and sax/clarinet music. It's a perfect place to unwind after a hectic week.

Great place!, I recommend
Great place!, I recommend it. They offer a california wine list, no full bar, but you can bring your own! I brought the ingredients for a sangria and they prepared it for us. Service was great, ambiance was good. They had someone play the piano and clarinet. Although, the food was good it was served warm not really hot. Overall, a good place to eat and relax.

We have been patrons for a few years - food is consistently terrific, as well as the service - they seem to go out of their way to hire the perfect servers. Saturday night jazz duo always a treat. Can't say enough positive things about this fine restaurant.

Lovely in Montclair
We have gone to Palazzo for years, it consistently has good food and service. Nice up date on the interior. All four of us were happy with what we ordered from beginning to end. Bravo.

Great food look forward going back
My wife and I have not been to Palazzo's in a long time. When we did go, it was one of our favorite places to eat.
On Mother’s Day we went back, and I am so happy that we did. The food was great and the there are plenty of selections on the menu. There were six of us at dinner, and everyone enjoyed their meal. I look forward to going back soon.

Delicious food, wonderful service
I enjoyed lunch with a friend at Palazzo. The food was delicious and nicely presented. I ordered Capellini with shrimp, and my friend ordered salmon. He also had the mushroom soup which was very tasty. Thanks for making him a fruit platter for dessert, and I splurged on vanilla gelato.

Never Had a Bad Meal
It has been a while since I'd been to Palazzo but I had no fear that I'd be disappointed and I wasn't. The food and its presentation were excellent. We also had the unexpected pleasure of listening to a piano/clarinet duo that added to the pleasure of our dining experience. After this last visit, I'm asking myself "why don't I dine there more often?"
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a group of eight, and the service was attentive yet not intrusive. The food was great... eight dishes cooked to perfection on a Saturday night in a full restaurant. Everyone raved about their dinners. I have to talk about the first courses especially because I tasted all of them. I never liked calamari, but the marinated and the fried calamari were so wonderful that I have to go back. The zucchini fritti and the tower of tomatoes and mozzarella were great. I was too stuffed for dessert. I highly recommend Palazzo.

I have been dining in this area for years with my wife. We have our favorite places we always go to. When I made a reservation at Palazzo I thought I was making a reservation with another restaurant in the area. A mistake I never make but i guess I was in a hurry and thought for sure from the site I had the right place. As we are walking to the intended restaurant (wine bottle in hand) we walk by Palazzo and I read the sign and think.. OH THIS IS PALAZZO! Since we made reservations I thought well it can't hurt lets go here instead. We were so happy with our experience. The food and service were wonderful! I had the branzino special and it was perfect!

Busy Saturday Night
Palazzo's was very busy - a good thing. However they frequently apologized for the slow kitchen - we didn't get our entrees for over an hour. That was not a problem as we were with friends we hadn't seen in a while. They comped us for two coffee's and one tea while charging us for a side dish that wasn't ordered. The food was very good. My guess is that they would benefit, on a Friday and Saturday night, for two seatings. This would help control things. I'd go back, no problem, but maybe not on a Saturday night.

Four sisters each found the perfect meal whether on the lunch menu, the prix fixe menu or the specials list. The appetizers were terrific (especially the mushroom soup) and the desserts were wonderful.

food was wonderful. Service was superb. We will be back, forsure

A Go To Place
When you want to dine out at a reliable and consistent restaurant, Palazzo is the place to go.

Been to Palazzo many times over the years. The food never disappoints and the service staff is genuinely friendly and attentive.

I have dined before at Palazzo's and have always had a great experience.
My experience on September 28th was mo
exception. The cuisine was excellent

We were given a gift certificate
We were given a gift certificate to the Palazzo Resturant by a friend, so this was our first experience. The food was great, the service very good and the prices reasonable considering there was live jazz, (piano and clarinet) playing all night long. We will definately return. The parking garage is across the street and also reasonably priced.

Deliciousness and Jazz!
Awesome food - although it took almost 45 minutes just to get our salads and appetizers which was an unnecessarily long time - BUT the food was actually wonderful and delicious so maybe the wait was worth it?
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
great menu well done
I often find in going to restaurants these days that there are only 1 or 2 items on the menu that are appealing. At Palazzo I wanted to eat everything. They had the most appetizing menu but the reason I recommend it was that everything we ate was great, really well prepared and very enjoyable. I also thought that the value that we got considering the quality of the food was outstanding. I am very eager to return.

Northern New Jersey is full of Italian restaurants. We were looking for something a little different but not overly adventurous or pricy. Palazzo fit the bill with lighter versions of old favorites and a clean bright atmosphere. Service was excellent and they were very concerned about making sure my meal was Gluten Free. My companion had salmon in lemon butter and capers and I had chicken marsala without the flour in the sauce. Both were delicious. Our house salad was wonderful. The wine list is limited to one California winery but the Pinot Grigio was delicious. My only quibble is that the Friday and Saturday night "jazz" turned out to be show tunes on the piano, at least early in the evening. But otherwise thoroughly enjoyable.

Always top notch. We are there at least twice a month.

The food is always consistent here and the service is great! They always have great specials and the food always tastes fresh. A must visit if your in the montclair area.

One of my favorite go to restaurant
A friend who comes to visit me every 2 months or so I always take him to Palazzos. We both love it.
Great food great service.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've eaten at Palazzo many times and this art time was the best yet, the food was delightful as was the jazz pianist playing in the background. Our wait person was attentive but bit inexperienced. Something particularly nice is that even though Palazzo has a wine bar, they don't discourage you from brining your own. Great value for a very nice and always dependable dining experience.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Romantic, always good Italian Gem
Took my boyfriend who lives on Upper West Side, NYC, for dinner and he really enjoyed the whole experience. The food was fabulous, top notch, the ambience great, a lovely pianist playing the whole time, great dim lighting and mood, wonderful service, just a great experience all around. I've been for lunch with friends and have found equally enjoyable and delicious, with plenty of interesting options from which to choose.

Lunch at Palazzo
I took my girfriend out for her birthday. It was important to me that she should be not merely satisfied but pleased. She liked her order, appreciated the vegetbles served with her wrap. We had red wine, which was very pleasant. We had dessert and coffee, both desserts were fine. Will return to Palazzo again.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
have been dining here for about 5 years - never experienced anything but great food, great service, great ambiance - one of our favorite restaurants - highly recommend
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A really great BYOB. Pleasant ambiance with a piano player to entertain but not loud enough to intrude. Service could be a little better, but still adequate overall.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have been to Palazzo before but on a weekend when they have live music. Much quieter during the week and a good time to go with friends. The food, as always, was excellent. The service was attentive. Only caveat is to make sure you ask for the prices of the specials if they interest you. Also note that should you ask for a simple substitution in a dish, like an accompanying vegetable, it'll cost you an extra $2. Since we weren't told about it until we got the check - the manager gave us gift certificates - a generous compensation.
