Il Palio was named after the race held each summer in Siena, Italy. Created with a passion, the restaurant has been exquisitely designed and beautifully finished with materials from all over the world. No stone was left unturned and time was not a factor in finding exactly what was required to make the "vision" a reality. The atmosphere created is one of quiet comfort in surroundings reminiscent of an Italian villa. The friendly and courteous staff, the outstanding food, and the efficient service all contribute to the ambiance felt by those who visit the restaurant. Il Palio's fine Tuscan cuisine is a pleasing combination of the highest-quality ingredients and the caring preparation by chefs who take pride in the dishes they present. Like the race in Siena, Il Palio is creating lasting impressions.

Terrific food, varied menu and wine list, and pleasant, competent service. It was our first time out post pandemic. We would come more often if we lived closer.

Our Servers were exceptional. They were very professional and at the same time very courteous. For myself, being a vegetarian, they explained everything and made appropriate suggestions.
PS: It was a birthday celebration and they provided the desserts. Great ambiance,

Il Palio has added protective measures in response to the current pandemic and they know what they are doing. The restaurant is clean both indoors and outside on the patio. The service is impeccable and food is now served on covered trays. As always, the food was delicious. I was dining with 3 others and we were there about two hours. We didn't feel rushed and enjoyed eating on their patio.

Dined on the patio with appropriate social distancing. Had a most pleasant lunch with tasty salad of freshest ingredients and a spinach bucatini with shrimp in terrific tomato sauce. Gracious service from greeting through eating. The experience does not come cheaply, but worth it for the occasional treat, celebration or meal with valued customer, client or partner.

This is the 1st time I have been back to Il Palio since they recently opened due to COVID-19 and this place has not skipped a beat! The owners invested dollars in making sure the restaurant respects social distancing in a manner that you still have a wonderful dining experience. Sitting outside on the patio for lunch was fantastic and the service was exceptional! I had the fresh mozzarella, avocado and tomato salad with a piece of grilled salmon and it was so fresh and outstanding. Heading back Friday with my Family to celebrate my sons bday and can't wait!

It was so nice to return to Il Palio for al fresco dining under a canapy. The food and service were excellent. Their care about cleanliness was very reassuring, given the current climate. Both food and drinks menus had a wide variety of choices and price point. Chef Margherita took the time to greet each table personally during dinner. We’re looking forward to dining at Il Palio again very soon.

Impressive/pretty exterior and interior and the bathrooms are clean. Service was a bit odd. We started with one waiter, kitchen staff brought out dishes at different times, then our waiter left and we were waited on by someone else (it seemed as if our original waiter was sent home because of staffing, it was not crowded). The bill was >$200 for 3 people, which in and of itself was not a “shocker” but it just felt as if we were being shuffled from staff member to staff member and that made the experience a bit unpleasant. Given the many dining options in the vicinity, we probably won’t be back. The food was not bad, just ordinary. The highlight was the octopus carpaccio. The calamari was pedestrian and the herb that was fried that came with it had hard stems in it that if swallowed would have been like swallowing a needle. My “peartini” was served in a highball glass instead of in a martini glass. There were just too many “misses.” No si see the place was empty on a Friday night.

Enjoyed another delicious lunch.
The waitress checked and I was able to substitute an alternate fish for the daily special.
It was delicious. I will return.

Great food but poor service. Waiters didn’t feel genuine and was tricked into buying a bottle of water (they removed from the bill after I told them I never ordered). The waiter acted extremely flustered the whole time. It was Vday but for a supposed upscale restaurant it left a lot to be desired, minus the food, which was great.

The waitress not with Malicious Internet continually called a group of professional women girls. We are professional limit and prefers to be called ladies or guest. Perhaps, it was her way of expressing friendliness. However, for women of color Referring to us as girls is in very poor taste and the wait staff should be trained properly how to greet its adult customers/guest -

We're a little disappointed after having dinner in Il Palio. The waiter was very helpful, but the food was not as good an tasty as we expected. We asked for fried calamari and zucchini, we expected them to be crunchy, but it was not the case. The pasta fradiavolo with seafood was almost raw and needed some salt.
