Lovely room. Dignified service. Solid standard Italian fare.
This is a wonderful restaurant in the financial district of San Francisco. I've been going to Palio's for 17 years. Great food and wonderful staff.
Food was VERY cold - beef gravy on turkey. Service was slow. Don’t know what their usual Italian food is like but DON’T GO FOR THANKSGIVING - it was a bust !!
Very slow service on thanksgiving day. Food was just okay. We should of tried Italian food on normal day.
We frequently go here because you will always be happy with the restaurant!
Great atmosphere and Martino is an amazing host. We had a large group which made it difficult for 1 waiter to manage but great job all round and very good food.
Always a great place to take clients. The food is fantastic and the service is top notch! Palio d'Asti is my go to spot for sure.
Not flashy. Not hip. Rather, a very solid Italian restaurant where the everyone will leave well fed and happy.
Have been enjoying dinner here since 1990. Great Italian food. Wonderful, friendly service. We love Palio.
Has reservations on a Friday at 6:30 and when we arrived, we were the only ones in the dining area. I was pretty worried but we were already there and hungry. The food was fantastic! I had the pertale sole which came with garlic mashed potatoes and thin string beans. My partner got a meat pizza which was also very good. Our server wasn’t outstanding but in his defense, he was new. They bring awesome chewy and crusty bread before your meal but no one told us about the dispenser of oil and balsamic vinegar on the table. The server really should have shown us what it was. We figured it out but the vinegar was inside the bottle and a little tricky. If we had to eat there again I wouldn’t have a problem but there are so many other places to try.
Did not have California cab? Seriously. Just one available for 300 for bottle. Other 2 were sold out.
Wood fired pizza, great pasta what’s not to love ?
This is our go-to place for a casual but good-food meal. The service is great, folks are wonderful. Favoloso!!
Food was delicious, not exceptional but reliable as always. Service was off their game--it took 20+ minutes to take our order. Will always return, though!
Pizza, salad and pasta were excellent. Nice wine list and we would return.
Excellent Italian food, perfect service, beautiful restaurant. Martino and his staff know the meaning hospitality...!
Best restaurant in Financial district
Great for lunch.
Always great we are locals and have been here many times. You can never go wrong
Second time we have been to this restaurant for lunch. Enjoyed our meals on both occasions. A bit pricey, but well worth it. Would definitely go back.
