Palazzo is an upscale Italian restaurant, using Mediterranean and carefully sourced ingredients such as octopus, whole Branzino, Ahi-tuna, Atlantic Salmon Angus beef, milk fed veal, homemade pastas and ravioli. Our delicious desserts stray from traditional Italian, but for good reason as the crème brûlée, bread pudding and tiramisu are outstanding. We also have live jazz on Fridays & Saturdays. Private parties can be accommodated on or off site.

We had a wonderful later night meal here this week. The service was outstanding and both our meals were excellent . Live piano music was relaxing and the overall experience made for a perfect night out. We will certainly return.

Great food and service. We’ve been there a number of times and it is our “go to” restaurant. It is a great byob location with the added bonus of a piano player. Highly recommend!

Palazzo has turned out to be my favorite restaurant in Montclair. What ever I order there is great. The waiters are the nicest. James could not be nicer. Always a great time when we go there.

My wife and I went for dinner on a Sunday night in November. The place had few diners at 7 p.m. and we considered that a plus for us. It was decorated very tastefully, maybe even classically. I ordered the octopus and fava bean appetizer—my wife declared it awesome! She had the lobster spaghetti, quite good, and I ordered the pork chop special—again, awesome! The chop was thick with a cherry sauce, resting on a bed of spinach, next to mashed potatoes with fried flaked pancetta. We shared a creme brûlée that was delicious. We would love to go back. Also, the way the restaurant is divided, you could imagine very easily having large parties in different areas of the room.

Nice restaurant with very courteous hosts and wait staff. The food is good staple Italian at reasonable prices. They have a select wine list, but you can BYO. Ambiance is pleasant. Book for a weekend night because it does get crowded.

I highly recommend the calamari. I had it as an appetizer and really could have ordered it again as my main course and dessert, it was tastier than any I have ever tried. My main course was veal and shrimp in a wine sauce. Which was very good as well. Dessert was a chocolate soufflé and coffee which was just enough to go home happy. Atmosphere is pleasant, staff attentive and knowledgable. A former co worker and I get together every month for dinner, this was our second visit and plan our 3rd for next month. Excellent food and service. The photo below is the calamari which I would have been happy with alone, next trip that's my appetizer again.

Food was amazing! But very overpriced! Had a groupon and would be only way I’d go back. Service was pretty poor! Very slow.
