Three out of 4 of us raved about their meal. One of us asked for a dinner cesaer salad with some special requests and the waiter was very challenged to bring what was requested. Also, the dinner salad had the option of adding salmon, which was very small and very dry. Other than that, we enjoyed the overall experience.

Great food and service. Everything is fresh and delicious! Great service! Their Lasagna Verde is sooooo delicious....it is not on the menu but they will make it if you ask for it! Fresh, "tomato-ey", light and delicious!!!!!....Oh....and did I say delicious????

Sorry to say I will not return soon. I made a reservation on Open Table. I called the restaurant to say we would be 5 minutes late and was told I had no reservation.What? I was looking at the reservation on my phone. When we walked into the restaurant I told the Hostess and she said it was there. We where seated...From there it was not an experience I was hoping for. The waiter came immediately and asked us what we would like. We had just walked in...We needed to look at the menus...The waiter returned within 5 minutes and asked if we were ready to order. We were still undecided. We had not been there for years and were undecided. Another 5 minutes went bye and we seemed forced to make a decision what to drink and what to eat. We were just trying to enjoy our visit with our friends. We had not seen them for a very long time and needed time to catch up...The food came out and I would say it was marginal. The Pollo Parmigiana was very greasy, the pizza was okay, not to much flavor...We did enjoy the PiattoToscano and the Tiramisu was great...Sorry Palio I will not be returning for another few years...but it does not matter your restaurant is always full...

Palio is in our opinion the best Italian option in Ann Arbor. Our meal was delicious and appropriately affordable for the quality, though this is the first time we've paid full price, having taken advantage of their outstanding Birthday deal on our past visits. The food was great. Big fans of the tortelloni and tortelocci. They had a great wine option for us to enjoy a bottle. Our visiting friend was pleased and impressed with Palio as his first big meal back in the States - he requested "something Italian and super filling" and Palio fit the bill. The only issue we encountered was that it took quite a bit of time for us to be seated (~8 minutes) at our table, though the restaurant was not crowded, and once we were seated it took quite a bit of time for anyone to approach our table to begin serving (~12 minutes). I finally flagged down Maegan, who promptly filled our water glasses, apologized for the wait and took over as our server. From that point on it was great. We will definitely return to Palio.

Enjoyed an excellent meal after WI game. Glad we made reservations ahead of time on Open Table! Even though they were very busy we experienced very good service and excellent food. Hostesses were very friendly,; the GM even changed TV to show different game. First time visitor - will definitely return!

Meal was great. Menu is just right in size and depth. Only service complaint: while our party was assembling, parking care etc, my wife sat for 15 minutes before being approached by a waiter. Once ordered, food was delivered fast and delicious.

Chose this restaurant for it's Italian cuisine. We were celebrating two occasions; a 38th wedding anniversary and a birthday for an out-of-town guest. The service was top notch and the food was amazing. On top of that, we received 25% off the bill for the birthday which was a very nice surprise. We will definitely be back very soon! Can't wait to try some of the other dishes!

My 6-yr old godson chose Palio for dinner after the football game. It's a great place to go after a game, especially if you get a reservation beforehand. I find that they do a great job moving people in and out without rushing you, and every time we've gone post-game, I have been incredibly impressed with how great they are with kids and accommodating of dietary restrictions. Also have to give high marks on behalf of my godson for the excellent raspberry ice cream (a scoop of ice cream comes free with kids' meals) and the pirate activity menu that he absolutely loved getting to color before our meals arrived!

A fantastic restaurant for an easy date. A creative and accommodating menu are wonderful additions to what is a very cozy and romantic ambiance throughout the restaurant. Not the best of values, but it is on par with most other Italian restaurants in the Ann Arbor area.

Normally, Palio's is very good, but not in our last visit. The kids portion was 3 bites of pasta - no exaggeration. The fettuccine alfredo had no sauce, the chicken Parmesan was so-so. The tortellini was very good. The food took forever - but it was packed. We were seated before our reservation time, so that was good.

I spent a wonderful evening with friends at Palio's--the food and service and wine were outstanding-we were able to spend 45 minutes bantering after our meal with no pressure to be on our way-very relaxing and enjoyable-5 stars all the way-

Food was marginal at best, the services was awful and the table next to our booth was so close we had to tap on their shoulders to have them move so we could get out of our booth. This is the second time in 3 months I've been there; I thought it was an off night the 1st time we were there...we wont be back after this visit.

Sat outside, with a party of 8. I didn't eat so I can't rate the food. The other members of the party raved about it. k
The service was very friendly and nice, but was very slow. Maybe because we were outside, but everything took for ever and there were times we couldn't find our server. One lady ordered a side salad as her meal, which was completely forgotten about until the very end.
We were a group of 8 chatty friends, we were in no rush, so the delayed service didn't bother us (unless we were waiting on our wine!)

My boyfriend and I went to Palio for dinner for our anniversary on Saturday night. I have dined at Palio before, but I had never dined on the roof of the restaurant which we did on Saturday. We absolutely loved the ambiance with the music and the string lights. Our service was excellent and the food was amazing. Overall it was a great experience and we both left the restaurant extremely satisfied and eager to come back again for another date night.

After the reservation faux pax with the hostess Madelyn, the rest of the dining experience was lovely. Server was attentive, the peach sangria was refreshing, food was tasty and view was lovely. Happy Birthday Nina!
