We enjoyed the Valentines Day specials. The food and service were superb. We also like Palios because they are open late and we can enjoy a nice dinner after the game or a concert.
Amazing experience. Food was wonderful, the server was kind and smart (even taught us a little pronunciation). Would reccomend to anyone craving authentic Italian.
DISAPPOINTED W/THE SEATING. ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK NEXT TO KITCHEN AREA. VERY. VERY LOUD. ASKED TO BE SEATED AWAY FROM, WHEN RESERVATIONS WERE MADE A MONTH EARLIER. THE 2 TOP WAS CRAMPED.
Not authentic Italian food like in Italy. Small pasta portions for the price. Amazing service.
Very good food I come here to eat
Bring back calamari!
First visit on a recommendation and I could not have been happier. The service was top notch and very informative. I will be back and highly recommend t for authentic Italian.
Very nice evening. My only complaint was ordering lasagna. I found out at ordering that lasagna was vegetarian. As I was changing my order, server offer a meat sauce over it. Bad choice. They fry hamburger and put a layer of it on and cover with vegetarian sauce. Meat was not seasoned or flavors blended. Not good.
Food is good. Service was good but not great.
Jon was a great server. He was able to accommodate an order change, which made up for the wine being late to the table. Great food and not overly expensive for the quality and location.
Pat, our waiter was great. Reasonable prices, good food, and quiet. Palio's is becoming our "go-to" special place.
Amazing as always :) food is always great:) enjoy the atmosphere
Every time I go here it somehow is worse. The first time I was blown away by the food and service. The second time was good but the food wasn’t anything exceptional. The last time was awful. The waitress stared at me and my date from three feet away for the entire meal. Our table was also half into the kitchen so we had a hard time talking over the noise. We went for restaurant week and were only there a half hour after opening for dinner and the food was luke warm at best when we got it. The whole dinner, from the moment we sat down untill we left, only took 40 minutes so it felt incredibly rushed. I don’t think I will be going back for a while.
We visited Palio during restaurant week so the value was very good.
The restaurant was packed, the food was good, but it's just not our "style".
My husband and I both ordered the stuffed chicken. It was very good, but the accompanying potatoes and veggies -- mostly yellow and red peppers had too much of an oily coating. The same was true for the side of spinach we selected. It wasn't a strong buttery flavor, so I'm not sure what the component was.
However, when a restaurant offers wine by the bottle, the servers need to be trained on opening the bottle properly. It isn't hard, requires a training session or two and a good corkscrew.
We had a LOVELY young lady as our server, but with the wine bottle sitting on the table it
literally took her a minute or more just to get the foil off the top. I gently offered
to help, which she thanked me for but declined. While I appreciated her willingness to keep
trying, for guests who are accustomed to opening wine it becomes very uncomfortable to sit and watch this!
After another two minutes or so to get the cork out, we had our first pour.
Sadly, Palio chooses to use cylindrical juice-glass type glasses for their wine. I really don't care for that...unless perhaps I'm in a quick pizza place ordering wine by the glass.
The staff is friendly, the place was packed and there was a line at the door (fortunately we had early reservations.) The folks waiting all seemed to be in the under-30 crowd, tho I did notice some folks seated who were older.
May not be a top choice for me, but it is definitely a well-loved Ann Arbor institution.
We went for restaurant week and had a very nice meal. It was a great value but they seemed to need to turn tables over. It was rushed and we had a three course meal with a cocktail and wine in under 45 minutes.
The food was very good and the place was fairly quiet. It is someplace we go to rarely and will continue to be
