Palio was simply delightful in every aspect. The bartender Kevin made us the finest drinks we have had in San Francisco during our stay. He was great conversationalist and he is the reason we returned for dinner. The food was equally fabulous. The restaurant is quiet and very nicely decorated. I highly recommend Palio for its food and drinks.
Service was excellent, and pasta was delicious. Seafood salad was very good except that the dressing was a bit too heavy and oily.
Wonderful ambiance in their newly designed space. Even the new restrooms are impressive. Great job and as always, the food is consistently good.
The PIZZA was Amazing. I staff was professional and caring. I would go back in a heartbeat!
We were first to arrive and nearly last to leave for lunch. Service was slow for our group of 11.
Classy environment, excellent modern Italian food and great service!
This is one of my favorite restaurants. Consistent good food, service, ambience and low noise level.
Fantastic restaurant. Get the Risotto.
Wonderful food. Great pizza. Wish they opened on sundays.
Great food and service!
Great homemade pasta and veal chops! Great service. Excellent overall
The newly remodeled Palio D Asti has a great atmosphere. The food and service and has always been excellent. I had the special of Ling Cod and it was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant. The big plus for me is that you can DINE instead of just eating, and HEAR the other person(s) talking, instead of shouting to be heard.
Thank you! Please visit us again soon!
Great drinks and desserts - pizza could be better
The food was very good. Service was excellent. Drinks were good. Ambience excellent. Chairs were very comfortable. A little pricey but not out of line with this kind of dining in San Francisco. I would go back again.
The revamped and redecorated Palio is all new and fortunately, all the same. The pastas are still excellent, the fish fresh, the service smooth and attentive.
Quiet enough to talk for a business lunch; enough noise to allow you to be discreet.
Thank you! We hope you visit us again soon!
Great food and good service. It is a go to restaurant for lunch and dinner. The owner is attentive and great to talk. Love the wine list.
Thank you! Please visit us again soon!
Lovely modern restaurant near our Omni hotel. The happy hour, service, and food were all very good. I would’ve liked to have seen more vegetables on the menu. Especially for side dishes. I would return especially for the happy hour.
Palio's updated environs offer a comfortable, classy but casual setting for any occasion -- from an intimate gathering to large parties. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent.
The food was outstanding!!!!!!!!
Palio is back with awesome remodeled space and the food is polished yet tasty.
Arturo was the best server we ever had.
Martini is the best server!
good pizza and tiramisu
People should be thronging to Palio. Everything was exquisitely delicious and full flavored and fresh. The service was terrific. It’s spacious and quiet for good conversation. I had a spicy farfalle and lobster bisque. My husband raves about the ravioli with lamb. Start to finish it’s some of the best Italian anywhere.
Really recommend Palio. The food was wonderful and service fantastic. Plus for a lunch meeting it works well as they serve the meal in good time.
Great food and service. Only gripe is the double charge for tea and sodas. I think there should just be one charge even if two sodas are ordered.
Palio provided an outstanding dining experience. The food was delicious, the services was impeccable, and the atmosphere was perfect for a successful business lunch.
really nice place and so kind for us . I visited with our team. good place for dinner and nice wine
First time since the re-model. Attentive, yet non-intrusive service; high quality food, well prepared. Perfect ambiance for a long lunch with a lot of conversation.
Delicious and elegant Italian food in a setting where I can hear and talk with my lunch companions; this is superb. Part of my delight is that the renovation doesn't appear to have led to any changes in the already excellent kitchen or professional service. Always dangerous to my waistline have this excellent restaurant so nearby to my office lol.
The ossobuco and sardine fettuccine were excellent. The server was very helpful and friendly. Prices are reasonable, considering it's in an expensive city. Parking a little tough though.
Food was better than ever. Great new ambience.
Excellent service and the food was spectacular!
The remodel looks fantastic the service is always top notch and the food is delicious!
Palio was a favorite of mine before the remodel. Kudos to Martino for an inspired job well done in that regard. While I previously lunched there on a fairly regular basis, I had not been back since the remodel was completed in December. The food on this visit (lunch for two of us) was, for lack of a better term, "bland." And quite pricey - $26 for 1/2 chicken w/charred radicchio and $35 for Branzino (sea bass) - neither came close to satisfying the palate for either of us. I had a scoop of gelato and my dining partner had a coffee, and with tax and tip our bill came to $90.00. Understanding that pricing is probably not THAT divergent from similar restaurants, what I expect is outstanding food in exchange. I'll return and give them another chance, but even if the food on the next visit is outstanding, I won't be dining at Palio quite as often as in the past.
Great spot for either business or personal dining. Terrific spot for group celebrations.
Excellent service. The staff provided the table I need for 8 people in the back of the restaurant as requested. The staff remained attentive as the tables around us started to fill up. Prices were in line with any other restaurant of that category I experienced during my short stay in SF.
Excellent food, fantastic service. A truly wonderful experience
Lovely new space
Same great food
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire city. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious, the service is excellent, and the entire experience is a great value.
