Palio - Ann Arbor Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful date night at Palio'so with one of my daughters. It was her first time there and she loved the ambience. The service was outstanding; friendly and pleasant without making us feel that he was going to join us for dinner. The food was delicious from appetizers to salad to main course through dessert. I wholeheartedly recommend Palio's.
We were dining out to celebrate a birthday and Palio's has a free meal for anyone having a birthday that day (proof required). It was a busy Friday night but the waiter was very attentive and answered all of our questions. One of our diners was dairy free, so they were willing to accommodate the special dietary request by changing the sauce on the pasta dish. So instead of having the creamy saffron sauce with the mussels, tomato basil was substituted and it was delicious. The mussels were plentiful and cooked perfectly. Another substitutions was also accommodated such as Al Fredo sauce instead of a spicy tomato sauce. The free birthday dessert was cannoli which no one wanted so it would have been nice to have been offered another option.
I haven't been here in about a year, but the menu has been updated. There are plenty of choices without seeming to be too much. We had an appetizer, entrees which included a salad, and dessert. This was the best meal I have ever had there. My swordfish was cooked as I requested and it was absolutely delicious. The mussels were large and soft and so good. Our dessert was the bread pudding which we ate up, even though I was not hungry. I definitely will be back.
Had a nice evening out with friends and was pleased to not only be able to make a reservation for 8 people, but to be able to make the reservation "day of" which appears to be a rarity in Ann Arbor. We enjoyed the wine selections and especially enjoyed starting the evening off with fresh bread and a plate of olive oil with salt and pepper. The meals were terrific and those of us that ordered fish were especially pleased. Service was good despite the back section having two rather large parties.
We went to Palio's on Valentine's Day, also my birthday, and had a great, leisurely meal without the normal hoopla-fuss of Valentine's Day dining. The food was very good and they accommodated my husband's special diet requirements; wine was good; and dessert was delicious. We will go back!
A truly great meal with outstanding service (kudos to Joseph for his attention to detail without being obtrusive). Our dinners were prepared perfectly and left us feeling completely satisfied. The tiramisu by the way was an excellent finisher to the evening. The website online menu was up-to-date and provided our party with a chance to leisurely peruse the dinner choices before visiting. The comfortable setting leaves us wanting to come back often, inconvenienced only by the distance from home (out-of-state).
The food and company was very good. We really enjoyed the meal, but the one single waiter we had for 14 people was very rude and snippy. We got one serving of bread for the entire evening and that was supplied by two others after we asked for thirty minutes to get some bread. He was rude when every time we asked for something, to order more drinks, to place our food order, to ask fro bread - every request was greeted with a very snippy and short answer - Just a minute, I need to finish this. It wouldn't have been bad, but several of the people at the table asked what his problem was. If not for this waiter - we'd be back every time we meet at this office.
My girlfriend and I just went here for her birthday. We had 2 great dishes (sorry I'm terrible with Italian names but we got the chicken and mushroom dish in a garlic broth and the seafood dish with shrimp, scallops, veggies and potatoes.) We also got a pitcher of the strawberry basil sangria which was delicious. This was all great tasting food for a great price. And they even gave us a free dessert for the occasion! The service was amazing and the atmosphere was exactly what we needed that night. We will be recommending Palio to others, and we will be dining here again.
Excellent value for Restaurant Week. Tasty and original. Excellent service. What I appreciated most was the cozy booth where we could have an actual conversation without shouting and without being in earshot of multiple other diners. The ambiance will bring me back.
We went on a Tuesday because of Restaurant Week, but will certainly be going back! The food was delicious, full of flavor and well-cooked. We didn't have much choice (with the set menu) but our server offered their favorites and was very attentive. I'm not sure it's always that quiet, but we had a wonderful evening, and can't wait to go back!
This nice Italian restaurant in Ann Arbor had a special menu for their annual Ann Arbor Restaurant week. My husband and I have never gone wrong at Palio so we joined them for their nicely priced 3 coarse menu. As usual, it was very good. The service was excellent and thankfully we got there before the rush.
