About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Welcome to Palio!

The Palio, our namesake, is a celebrated Italian horserace that runs through Siena, Italy twice each year and is the inspiration for our robust food and spirits. Palio is not just a restaurant, it’s a way of life! Palio is bold, vibrant, and embodies the spirit of The Palio di Siena horse race. It is full of life, emotions and energy. The competitive nature of The Palio is emboldened in the spirit of our staff in their quest to be the best at creating a memorable dining experience for each of our guests. The flags strewn throughout the restaurant represent different contradas or neighborhoods in Italy and remind us of the lively and convivial cultural influences that come together in a festival of fun, food, and friendship.

The restaurant closed 3 days ago and yet Open Table still took our reservation. What a disappointment to arrive and find it closed for good. It was really fun trying to find a place to eat with availability in that part of town at 7:20pm.

This was our first time at Palio and we didn't know what to expect. We were meeting friends from Ellicott City for dinner and this was our mid-point selection. But what a pleasant surprise. Besides being cold when we arrived, they did make adjustments to the heat/air.

Our server had more tables at times than anyone should have to handle but with assistance from the rest of the staff, she made it work. She was knolwedgable about gluten options and I was impressed with how many there actually were including pizza and pasta! The two husbands ate pizza while my friend and I had salmon and the seafood pasta specialty. The food was very good.

The table ordered calimari which I was told was very good while I had a Ceasar salad that I truly enjoyed. Overall, the food was very enjoyable and I know we will be back.

We were confused that we couldn’t order happy hour items at the bar, then close our tabs and resume our visit at a table where we could then order more food and drinks. Instead, we were told that we had to finish the happy hour food/drinks at the bar, then move to a table to order dinner.

Restaurant was empty. Waited to be acknowledged by the receptionist who was on the phone. Sat outside with our friends. Very nice and pleasant server. However, the food was not served hot. Told the vegetable was broccoli. However it was broccolini which is not the same vegetable. Three meals were served together the last 15 minutes later. It had to be remade as it was served incorrectly. Manager did take the meal off the check. Restaurant is fairly new hopefully they will improve in the future.

Service was horrible. Ordered mussels and they came 80% empty shells, mentioned to waiter, he took it back to discuss with manager, came back with the same plate with few mussels on the side of the plate and said...." they fell out from the shell" manager fished them out and put it on the side so we can see:)))
Never again.

I love this restaurant!!! This was my second time attending for happy hour. The Brussel sprouts are always amazing and this time I tried the meatballs too and they were also great! The restaurant is super cute and when I made my reservation on open table I requested a particular table and they were able to accommodate me! I definitely suggest that you give them a try!

Usually Italian is not my go to, but due to location and high recommendation that is why I chose Palio on this day out with girl friends for lunch. I loved everything about the restaurant and immediately recommended it to my brother and his wife who actually live in the area.

Great service and drinks. Very accommodating with an infant. Best garlic bread I've ever had, but the happy hour pizza had way too much cheese on it. (I know i shouldn't complain about it... After all... It's cheese!) But, so much so that it weighed down the crust and made it soggy. Though, the other pizza that we ordered was delicious.

Food was excellent.
But it took a real long time for the food to come out of the kitchen on a night when the restaurant was mostly empty.

We won a gift card in a silent auction so tried Palio - Foundry Row. The service was great and we loved the modern look and feel of the restaurant (the menu tablets were very cool!!!), but most of the food we ordered didn’t have a lot of flavor. The bread was delicious and the pizza was tasty, but the Chicken Parmesan was fairly expensive and underwhelming. The tableside presentation of the Carbonara was unique but the pancetta was the most flavorful part of the dish.

We’ll try the pizza again during happy hour in hopes that our experience was unusual.

Our waiter, Ron, lacked people skills. Flat affect, low energy, minimal engagement.

He simply wanted to bring the food and nothing else.

We ate lunch outside and it was quiet and pleasant. The food (salads, eggplant Parmesan, and the salmon on polenta) was all excellent and served shortly after we ordered. The waitress was friendly and efficient. Total cost was also very reasonable.

My experience with Palio's restaurant was a good one. It was my first time dining there. It was for 12noon and was not crowded at all. The hostess was pleasant and the waitress was pleasant but at times a little too much. The food was delicious and seasoned just right. I will come back again, perhaps for dinner.

Prompt seating in a booth in the bar.( didn’t know that they have a daily Happy Hour). Half price apps( get the mussels and try the Brussels sprouts!! ). Half price wine bottles as well. Such a bargain. Portion sizes are more than ample( take home bags/boxes supplied). We had the veal ,which was very good. Wait staff is knowledgeable ,helpful and very friendly. They have outdoor seating as well. Just a wonderful experience!
