Il Palio was named after the race held each summer in Siena, Italy. Created with a passion, the restaurant has been exquisitely designed and beautifully finished with materials from all over the world. No stone was left unturned and time was not a factor in finding exactly what was required to make the "vision" a reality. The atmosphere created is one of quiet comfort in surroundings reminiscent of an Italian villa. The friendly and courteous staff, the outstanding food, and the efficient service all contribute to the ambiance felt by those who visit the restaurant. Il Palio's fine Tuscan cuisine is a pleasing combination of the highest-quality ingredients and the caring preparation by chefs who take pride in the dishes they present. Like the race in Siena, Il Palio is creating lasting impressions.

Wonderful place. Excellent food and great service
Employee smokers by the front entrance created an unpleasant smell. We had to wait to eat our food in between their smoke breaks.
Incredible food and ambiance. Wonderful service.
The waiter could attempt to the table little bit faster… we were waiting for the bread little to long
Outstanding! Great to see everyone back and to have the Resturant together again.
We were seated at our reservation time and were able to choose inside or out. We sat outside which was nice. Our waiter was very nice and helpful with questions we had about the menu. We had the beet carpaccio, fig pizza, ginger gnocchi & beef tip fusilli which they were all very good. I would definitely dine here again.
Wonderful outdoor area with large umbrellas. Luncheon special was delicious with several choices.
Service and food top notch! Their pasta dishes are to die for but do not count them out on the steaks....delicious. Dessert is a must!
Great food, beautiful decor throughout the restaurant. Priced accordingly.
Il Palio is outstanding all the time, however dinner on the refreshed patio last night may have been the loveliest, most delicious evening yet!
Thank you & see you soon!
Food was wonderful, noise level was terrible
We loved the dining experience! Food was superb. Service was timely and efficient. Atmosphere was delightful. We'll be back on the 28th of July and many more times.
This restaurant is excellent. The food is well prepared, the menu is varied and the service was friendly and attentive.
A little noisy but the food and service was very good. Good drink pour made for excellent value.
I explained several times to the server about my husband’s gluten allergy. He assured me that the steak dish was GF. However my husband got sick the next day and called and the soya chef told him there was gluten in the dish. In short, their negligence made him sick. The food was good and they were nice, but I won’t go back.
We love this place! Been numerous times, just to eat, engagement dinner. You are the best! The staff, food, restaurant. Love any of the risottos you have! And the drinks are amazing! Had a summer sangria last nite. Wine is awesome! I would recommend this place 100%!
It was an anniversary we celebrated Jose our waiter was great!! B
Great food, great service. Noisy the day I was there for lunch but fun!
Mario is a terrific waiter. Supporting staff was very attentive. Like luncheon specials.
Room noise can be distracting.
Very good Italian food. Burrata a must. Loud, energetic environment.
I apologize as I forgot our servers name. He was very friendly and attentive and took his time explaining the specials of the evening. We were never rushed which I appreciate. Oh and yes the food was great also. All four of us opted for the scallop and pasta special which was excellent, as well as the calamari and zucchini with goat cheese apps.
The noisiest restaurant I have been in in years. Had to move to another table. Absolutely no sound deadening material Had to yell to hear people at our table.
What a pleasant surprise! I grew up with Italian immigrants. Even helped them make pasta or Wednesdays for Sunday dinners. Il Palio was incredible! We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 main courses. All were delicious! Ambiance was very nice. We dined al fresco as the sun set. Wait staff were professional and pleasant. They also have a great selection of Scotch Whisky 🥃. Will recommend d and will return! Grazie!
Very ambient setting and location. Delicious appetizers and entrees.
The flavors and combinations the chef pulls together are always fantastic.
The food was wonderful, but the wait for the food was very long. Apps came relatively quickly, but it was close to two hours before we got our main meal. I was also surprised by the lack of masks on all staff…waiters, bussers et al. The young people at our table wore their masks when leaving the table, but they were the only ones in the restaurant that I could see. We went on a Saturday night, and when we go back it will hopefully be on a less busy week day.
Our waiter was amazing and did such a great job checking in. Will definitely be back!
It was fabulous!!! The chef paired our entire meal around this incredible bottle of wine
2.5 hours for a couple to enjoy a bottle of wine, 2 apps, dinner, dessert and after drinks. A place to take your time and enjoy the quality ingredients used to make your food.
Excellent food but service was not what I’ve come to expect there.
Outstanding menu and food quality. Staff is very professional and efficient.
We had a delicious meal. Everyone really enjoyed their entrees.
As always Il Palio doesn't disappoint. Food, service and ambiance are always excellent. And it great to be back to "normal" We ate outside last night and the weather was perfect to enjoy their beautiful patio
Excellent meal. Did not disappoint.
Excellent service and top notch food. Staff is very friendly and professional
Food was overall very good, though portions were a bit small for the price. The service was slow and the waiter did not pay much attention to us (though I am guessing it is because we were a group of young adults) and the appetizers came out very quickly but the entrees took almost an hour to come after ordering.
Great atmosphere, prompt service very personable staff. Going back for sure !!!
Great dining alfresco. Food fabulous , great wine , loved the whole thing!
We ate on the outside patio, because the evening was beautiful. We always have a wonderful experience there, inside or outside...
Food is delicious! We all had different things and all was yummy!
