The food was good but portions are really small. Also, they were out of pretty much half of the items on the menu which was a bummer

I brought my family here for Mother's Day and set a reservation. When we walked in, we were seated almost immediately. Our server was very helpful and kind, though it was a little slow. Since we were new, we asked for her recommendation in which she went into detail and made us confident ordering. Though the price of the food was very pricey, for example, a Chateaubriand steak that filled one fourth of the plate was $42, the food was beyond delicious. That steak just melted in my mouth. As evidence of our server's kindness, she gave my mother a free gelato dessert. Overall, the ambiance, the welcoming attitude of the staff, and the taste of the food shadows the slightly pricey menu and the relatively slow service. Definitely a must try.

Amazing service, food, and ambience. Joe and David were phenomenal and Brandon, our server was very personable. I’m very impressed with this establishment in the Buena Park area. I will be a regular here

IL PALCO was nothing short of spectacular. Although its nestled away in the source, it clearly shines as the main attraction. The decor, food, service, and ambiance are second to none in North OC and I plan to be back very soon. Thank you IL PALCO

This place just gets better every month. They’re new so they are still working out minor kinks but damn am I pleased to see that their menu gets a new item every week! I was soo happy to try the spinach gnocchi

Wow what a surpsingly satisfying experience at IL Palco. I had such a great business lunch with clients today not expecting much since it's a bit of an Italian fusion place but absolutely loved the calamari and Pollo cream. My buddy had the filet mignon and that looked amazing. We had a couple drinks and the cocktails were great. The decor and architecture are worth the reservation. Highly recommended
