i had the black linguini . it was all I could hope for . The clams , mussels , shrimp and calamari were all cooked to perfection . My wife who is less adventuresome had the Rigatoni Bolognese which was very pleasant . The touch of cream made it rich but smooth .These are dishes that we will order again .
Great food. Nice atmosphere. Good piano music but hard to hear. Service was well-done.
Terrific meal and BYOB. We (4 of us) were looking for a BYOB restaurant that we hadn't been to before and Palazzo was a great find. We were greated immediately and everyone was friendly and attentive. They asked if we were going to the theater nearby and when we said no they were thrilled that they were our choice. We were treated to a very nice dining experience with no rush to leave. The food was terrific. The Acorn squash soup and portabello mushroom appetizers were the best apps. We enjoyed the duck, branzino, tuna special and pasta bolognese entrees. Definitely a return trip in our future.
I enjoyed the atmosphere which is quietly entertaining and not rushed and intrusive. While my mother loved her meal. I was a bit disappointed in the spaghetti lobster, which could have used more flavoring, i.e. garlic, sun dried tomatoes and even a smidgen of marinara sauce. The crab cake salad was delicious!
Excellent service, piano bar, great food!
I came here expecting a nice meal based on the reviews I read on a few sites. The space is very nice, easy to get to and plenty of near by parking. The decor is nice and the staff from hostess, bus boy to waiter were all excellent. My only complaint was that my food was very salty. I had black been soup which was on the salty side. I had salmon over risotto with scrimp but the salmon was too salty. I only eat half and did not take the other half home. The good thing was that my date's meal was very good. She has a lobster/crab bisque and a veal which were excellent. Dessert Tiramisu was also excellent. I'm going to give the place another chance. Question it was a Monday was the chef off and someone else cooked? Price was right also and BYOB.
The food and service were very good. However, Saturday night is not the best night to get together with friends to catch up, because the noise level is LOUD. The live pianist doesn't help, though she was very good. The pianist should be off to the side, not in the center of the restaurant. Everyone was forced to speak over the music, so everyone was speaking much louder to be heard.
We always enjoy the food and service. Will return again.
Sub-par food and the piano playing in the center of the restaurant was much too loud and distracting.
This is one of our favorite restaurants and they never disappoint us. We have been going here for 8 years and it is always good.
Very good restaurant. I believe it is under new management and service and food have improved.
This was my first time dining here and the experience was fantastic! The food was excellent, service was stellar and they had a piano player made the whole experience that much better. I would definitely come back here. It is also easily accessible to the local parking garage so you don't have to stress about parking far from this location. I would definitely return to this restaurant.
Love this place! Great staff, amazing food, and always a good time! One of the best BYOB restaurants in Montclair!
Enjoyed the piano player, Betty
Have reviewed Palazzos many times over the last few years. Have never had an even "just ok" experience. Always great food, wait staff, host. Will continue dining there whenever we can.
