At age the of 20, Chef Rafael moved with his wife to Cleveland, Ohio. His goal was to continue his Italian culinary skills which he acquired in the region of Verona, Italy.
Chef Rafael was introduced to the restaurant industry at a very young age. His grandmother was very well known for her home-cooked dishes. She loved having her grandson with her as she cooked meals as soon as he was able to walk. He was six years old when he first learned how to make homemade pasta and, by age 14, he was ready to embark on his own culinary journey. His first stop was Verona, Italy,which was the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The romantic and rich architectural heritage of Verona was matched by the great culinary venues of that city and Chef Rafael's experience and skills grew exponentially. Three years later, Chef Rafael traveled to Belgium and France where he then experienced cooking French cuisine as well.

    From entering Palazzo… spot on perfection. Every detail was hit. Service was superb. Chef/owner Rafael was the cherry on top! Hands on doesn’t express it enough. This is a true team/family feel experience. We fell in love with Palazzo! Thank you Palazzo. Our anniversary was extra amazing because of you. Patrons always, Sarah & Daniel

    This place is an absolute gem. The food was amazing. The service was excellent. The chef came out to our table and was so nice. We will definitely return. We had the Waygu, gnocchi, and Chicken Marsala, as well as soup and salad. Everything was top notch.

    Palazzo is a well-run operation that features great servers, varied menu selections, and excellent food. Only drawback is that it can get loud sometimes with the less than optimal acoustics. Highly recommended restaurant for Italian food fans.

    Thank you for the experience, the only thing I would like to feedback is the attitude of the waiter, a very serious person, In a bad mood, the other people of the place are super cordial

    Very good experience at Palazzo. Service was great, food was very good and the room was very nice. A bit pricey but nice for a special occasion. I would recommend.
