Jason was very cordial, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Food and wine were excellent and greatly appreciated the extra garlic bread and pizza dough knots. My wife and daughter will likely dine their next month.

This was the find of a lifetime. Don’t let the location fool you. The food was delicious and the service impeccable and attentive. We’ll certainly go back for our Italian food fix. Thanks Danny.

Was a Saturday evening and the place was busy. We felt a little rushed as there were people waiting. That impacted the service as we had dishes arriving out of order. We actually had to remind them they forgot an entree. When it arrived it was obvious that it had been sitting. We have eaten here before and this was the most challenging of the visits. We will return, but not in the evening.

Another score for OpenTable recommendations! Delicious meals (lasagna and chicken parmigiana) with generous portions and friendly unobtrusive service. Next time in the area, going back for sure!

Travel a lot for work and have learned over the years that the best Italian restaurants are in shopping plazas. Palace continued to prove my theory. A nice rare non-chain in a land of generic chains. Service was beyond friendly and sincere from a warm welcoming through to a great meal. Prices are incredibly reasonable as well. If you like traditional Italian food you can find in the northeast, this is the place for you.

Authentic Italian from Napoli right here in Lakeland / Tampa You are finding a gem. The owner Daniel ( Danielle) could not have made our night passing through Lakeland more memorable. He is charming and very personable. The food was outstanding ... from the fresh gnocchi to the whole Branzino which was deboned tableside personally by the owner was delicious.
Thank you for the great Italian experience! Looking forward to returning!
