    Very special Valentine dinner. Wines paired with courses were excellent. Service and atmosphere wonderful. Food all excellent although my wife's fish tasted "fishy" where mine had no trace. Ravioli to die for. Wines themselves were delicious in their own right. Well done.

    Noise Level is the best I have ever experienced in a public setting. So quiet I was able to enjoy my conversation with my beautiful date without asking her to repeat herself. The fired oyster, one question do you deliver to Keysville. This is the where a person can share any special occasion proposing, anniversaries, and especially long lasting memories of a great place to dine.

    Beautiful setting. Elegant and quiet, which is so rare today. Superb food prepared mostly with reference to Tuscan cooking. Local wines that are paired with the food are excellent. First-rate and friendly staff who will go above and beyond the norm to make your evening pleasant.

    Absolutely wonderful!! Took our dear friends out for their birthdays. We arrived on a blustery cold afternoon and were seated right in front of a warm inviting fireplace. Our dishes were on point and well presented. The serving staff was there when appropriate or needed, never hovering. We very much enjoyed our seasonal dishes and look forward to dining again soon.

    Exceptional experience in every possible aspect. Pristine yet intimate setting. Ethereal cuisine that brought me back to my days in Parma. The cinghale was tremendous, the bison out of this world. Wines here are so outstanding you forget they’re locally produced. Knowledgeable service that enhanced all facets of our time here. Cannot wait to return!

    The staff at Palladio is friendly, considerate, knowledgeable about the menu, and always delightful. The food transports back to Tuscany where we have had the good fortune to visit on a couple of occasions. When we have a special occasion to celebrate, Palladio is always the destination.

    We go to Palladio when we have a very special occasion to celebrate. We've been several times over the past few years, and we've never been disappointed! My one complaint is uncomfortable chairs- too tall and straight for me. They do go well with the beautiful decor and all I'd need to make it a perfect experience is a foot stool. The price may seem high but not when you consider the quality and care poured into every dish. We'll be back.

    What’s the price as they charge, we expected a Michelin star experience. It was far from it. Yeah moose Boosh was delicious, so we had high expectations, but every course that followed was a total disappointment for both my husband and I, each having ordered different things. Everything was very pedestrian, amateurish and underwhelming, and the prices are ridiculous for what we got. We will never go back.
