Palio - Ann Arbor Ratings and Reviews
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.
We went for the restaurant week deal, which we all thought was a very good deal. The pasta (Tortellacci alla Palio) was outstanding and the Nutella bread pudding was very good. The only not so good thing was my soup, Zuppa di Pollo con Verdure, which was very salty.
Sat at the bar for dinner, Jonathon and Casey were "great hosts". Engaged in great conversation all the while keeping the wonderful bread coming as well as dinner. I have always found the food to be just great and worth the value. The three of us all had pasta dishes and we each thought we had the best!! We will be back again, as we are frequent customers.
The server and the food were awesome but even though I had reserved a table in advance they put us in a very unconfortable spot in the back of the restaurant, next to a door where people from the restaurant would come in and out all the time (sometimes with money, so I am guessing it was kind of the management room) and that disturbed my husband's seat the whole evening (it was new year's eve).
So disappointing. We have been going to Palio's for years and order Seafood Pescatore. They changed the dish and it's awful! Skimpy seafood potions, no squid but even worse is the sauce. It's not a pescatore it's now a creamy bland angry blend. We were so sad and disappointed . To top that off we once again tried to enjoy a bottle of cab but just can't get over that we have to drink wine out of juice glasses. Time to grow up please. And ditch the new pesctore, it has no integrity.
The Prosciutto E Formaggio Di Pollo Farcito was very good, while the Capellini Con Pollo Funghi was only fair (chicken was dry). The carrot cake was unremarkable and tended toward the dry side. We chose this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion and were a bit disappointed. Our server picked a nice wine when he finally took our order, but the service was slow and not attentive enough for my liking. I think we would return only because our previous visit was quite good.
