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.

They know how to run an excellent restaurant. Food is excellent as well as the service. Running a business in COVID 19 is not easy but they do everything to make us feel safe.
We have never been disappointed. Always an excellent meal. Anyone who does not order one of the homemade pastas is truly missing out.
I wasn't comfortable dining inside, so requested outdoor seating. Manager moved extra heaters over for us. Food was DELISH. I almost never order pasta, but the butternut squash ravioli was so worth it. We will definitely be back!
Everything was great! Felt very safe with precautions they’ve taken to ensure customer’s safety during Covid. Highly recommend!
The food and experience were amazing. The servers were super nice and always courteous. We got the salmon, halibut, flatbread, and tangerine ice cream. It was all so tasty.
Thank you for a great experience.
Never disappointed with food and service.
Just a night out to retain some sanity. We really enjoy this place and wanted to make sure we were helping in the small way we can.
We asked for outside dining and were immediately accommodated.
Nothing but good things
From start to finish, our dinner at Il Palio was perfection! The service was excellent, attentive without hovering. The food was sublime, from appetizer to dessert. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the staff was first rate. We are definitely planning to go back again soon.
It was amazing. My favorite place to go to!
Gorgeous setting, incredible service, beautiful menu, delicious food. Couldn’t ask for more.
Only feedback waiter did not inquire as to whether we were doing half or full portion. After order was placed it came to us we should have told him half. He did adjust the order and price.
Birthday! Amazing experienc!’ Love Lovelace this restaurant
May be the best Italian restaurant in the county. The seafood combination special was best I have ever had.
Had a business lunch at Il Palio and food was outstanding as usual. Had grilled salmon over chopped salad and it was perfect! Can wait to head back!
Lovely restaurant. Service was very good. My meal was disappointing but everyone else love there's. I tried the risotto with halibut and it came with little chunks mixed in. I was hoping it was a filet on top. Oh well it's 2020. Nothing is as good as we would like it.
Always perfect. Beautiful, delicious and creative food and fabulous staff!!
Always a great culinary experience! Absolutely delicious, the service and COVID steps are spot on.
It was for our 14th anniversary. Pretty sure we’ll go there for our 15th, too.
Absolutely amazing meal and service!!!!
Il Palio is the only restaurant we considered for our anniversary dinner!
Their customary excellence made it another memorable and enjoyable experience!
Great celebrating a good friend’s bachelorette party
Our favorite restaurant... amazing food, amazing service!
Excellent food, professional staff and an overall wonderful experience !
Food was good as always. Waitress covering too many tables so service was quite slow. Given the prices, I would not recommend to a friend.
Lovely restaurant for every day dining or a special occasion. Beautiful surroundings and excellent food.
Outside dining is very nice and pleasant. The menu is very simple and the food was bland. My scalloped potatoes were hard and undercooked and, my fish was overcooked. The wine list was boring made up of wines that I can buy at the local wine store. The service was variable. I mostly did not like the fact that they make you keep the same utensils throughout your meal as opposed to changing them with each course. They did the same with the wine.
Great experience. Food and service were excellent. Great protocol for covid; we felt safe.
over rated, horrible service, food served cold, not what I thought it would be
Great food, service , wine, !!! Outside patio with heaters works well. Wait staff knowledgeable and attentive !
This is a total dining experience! Food is excellent, service is outstanding. A little pricey but worth the money! Enjoy
Great atmosphere and even better food. It was an excellent experience.
Early autumn lunch on the patio with Claudio serving! Great time, great food , great service.
My wife's Filet Mignon was the best I have ever tasted and the home made pasta was excellent.
Food was excellent service was exceptional you get what you pay for.
The food is always excellent. Would always recommend.
We had an excellent experience. The restaurant is strangely located in the middle of an office park, but with do the most they can with lighting and greenery to make it seem more rural and Tuscan-like. The food was very good and we are foodies. At the time, they were forced to be limited to 50% capacity, which diminished the ambiance, but still its a beautiful restaurant both inside and out.
Nice outdoor patio, food is great!
Il Palio is simply fantastic! We had a mother daughter lunch and enjoyed a few appetizers and split a pasta and everything was amazing. Our server was delightful and very knowledgeable about the menu. We had just a wonderful experience.
Not the usual comfortable tables and chairs due to Covid. Instead new tables and uncomfortable chairs. Atmosphere somewhat diminished by this change. Food and drinks very good although a little expensive. Service was very good too. We will be back.
Celebrated a birthday, and as usual, they didn’t disappoint.
The meat & cheese starter was ample and full of flavor and textures.
My chicken dish and wife’s lasagna were outstanding. A comped dessert finished off the meal nicely.
We hesitated going indoors, but tables were well spaced and servers followed good COVID precautions.
Would not hesitate to return.
