Palio d'Asti

Voted "2013 Best Italian" by SF Bay Guardian readers, Palio is a favorite of downtown denizens looking for the perfect spot to make a deal, travelers who appreciate Michelin rated comfortable dining, and anyone seeking an exceptional group dining or private party venue. A place where historic techniques blend with a contemporary approach, and Michelin raterd "comfortable" service personally overseen daily by owner Martino Di Grande.

Palio’s menu (including gluten free and heart healthy options) is a veritable culinary tour of Italy; emphasizing the cooking of different regions as the seasons change. Palio’s menu utilizes organic produce from small, local farms as well as sustainable agriculture and aquaculture. The Wine Spectator award winning list has always been exceptional, including a wide range of Italian varietals and California offerings. Full bar.

"Went there on a Friday early evening:
The goods:
- easy parking in the Financial District at these hours
- professional waiters
- somehow modern and nice ambiance
- one pager for the menu and wine list
- accommodated our 15min late arrival
Antipasti:
- Polpo, nice taste, good combination of flavors, oranges provide a good twist of acids, way too many beans on the plate, right name of the dish should have been beans with polpo, we did not eat them, still, makes the price of the dish too high
Main Dishes:
- Fish of the day, Salmon, nothing wrong with that, was on the overcooked side rather than the undercooked, what I would have expected for a $$$$ restaurant. Or at least get asked how I want to have it prepared.
- Costeletta di Vitello, meat quality was ok, asked rare, got well done, close to the bone also well done! Garlic butter was some industry product, got sliced of a "sausage like" package, plastic enclosure not removed, almost ate it! A $$$$ restaurant should be able to produce a garlic butter by themselves!
- Side dish:
- Spinaci, Spinaci is the italian word for spinach? Why do you present Chard instead? Why does the menue not mention Chard? Waiter?
Deserts:
- Panna Cotta, expect something close to creme brulee, salt added, not mine
- Tiramisu, does not have to taste that sweet! When was the last time the cook was in Italy?
In a Nutshell, the good reviews are overrated, the value is not there, there are $$ restaurants in SF with better quality, at least for the food we have chosen."

"Last minute, French contingent in tow, needed a quality bottle of wine and some food that to be respected.. this place didn't let me down. Good value wine and a knowledgable sommelier to help with the Super Tuscans.. The gnocchi was wonderful, the carbonara was stellar, the squid ink pasta beautiful, the fish and pork dishes cooked perfectly.. my colleagues were pleasantly impressed."

"Pizza was good actually..thin crust, wood fired ..margherita .. Fresh basil..
Frito misto was subpar.. Fried lemon slices? with @ 4 shrimp and lots of fried zucchini.. Small amount of calamari.. Kinda lame
Wild boar fettuccine good, fresh pasta but was a very small portion even though it was the app size
Ambience .. Looked like a chain.. Old and tired .. There was only 2-3 other tables in there at 7 pm on a Friday night??

"I am never disappointed by the food at Palio d'Asti - and when I can get away from the office for lunch or when I need to host someone for lunch, this is my go-to restaurant in the Financial District. Oh...and I have never received anything but excellent service!"

"The food and service was good overall but not what we expected. We picked this Resturant for NYE because they didn't have a preset menu. We when we got there guess what.... It was preset and $80 per person. It wouldn't have been an if we would have know and could have seen the menu before hand."

"Took my friend to a birthday lunch here and both had the steak salad which I would definitely recommend to anyone. I love this place because they have a great wine selection and are always helpful in suggestions of food and / or beverages!"

"This was our first time for a special holiday dinner. Palio does a great job with both large and small groups. As usual, we received a warm greeting by Martin DiGrande when we arrived. Food and service were excellent while maintaining a very comfortable atmosphere. We stretched out dinner for almost three hours and enjoyed every minute. I hope that Palio continues to thrive for many more decades."

"The food was good, not great. I wish I was able to order from the regular menu. We got there early and they were able to seat us right away. We were first seated next to a table who brought their very large, very furry dog which smelled a bit. We asked to move tables which they promptly helped us do. It looked like there was only one waiter servicing the back room which was way too many tables to handle for once person. However, the waiter was still courteous and efficient, despite the nasty woman at the table next to us who was complaining about the temperature and everything else."
