have not been in a while
Service is always good, food real good but I have not been in a while. I will return to let people know after tonight, so you have a fresh review of this restaurant. I always remember at the end of the meal thinking, why don't we come more often, tune in....

the only thing that shined about the restaurant is the service! food = drab and hasn't changed in 15 yrs, decor = dated, Rather eat at McDonald's :(

Outstanding Modern Italian
Absolutely fabulous! I've been dining at Palazzo for a couple of years and the food and service are consistently beyond expectations. This past Saturday I went with my boyfriend for our anniversary. We started with the Spinach & Pear Salad, it was seasonal, fresh, and crisp, topped with Raspberry Vinaigrette. We also had the Roasted Portabello Mushroom with Roma Tomatoes and Goat Cheese. It melted in our mouths. For entrees we had the Seared Tuna over the Mixed Seafood Risotto and the Grilled Lamb Chops with Sauteed Spinach and Garlic Whipped Potatoes. Outstanding Entree's!!! We really enjoyed the live jazz while we dined. It added a touch of class to an already elegant evening. Our server, Steve, who was top notch suggested we finish our evening with a Creme Brulee and Cappuccino's. What a wonderful evening! I look forward to having many more fabulous meals at Palazzo.

Wonderful restaurant!
I have eaten at Palazzo for the past 10 years and never had a bad meal. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. As someone who needs to eat gluten-free, I really appreciate the owner's ability to make meals that I can enjoy. I highly recommend Palazzo.

Super bridal shower
For the members of my bridal shower party who were born in Italy, the quality of the food was their primary concern. Not to worry. They felt that the Penne Vodka and Sole Francaise (they would say, Francese) were excellent. For those women who were most concerned about conviviality and decor, Palazzo presented a stylish, sophisticated, warm ambience. Our party of twenty was placed near the front entrance, with a convenient area to open gifts and chilled wine at the ready. The fact that another, larger party was also being held in the rear portion of the restaurant presented no problem. The maitre d'hotel and the wait staff could not have been more accommodating, and the chef was very pleasant about customizing the Choice B Menu to include the Chicken Valentina. All the guests, both young and not so young, enjoyed chatting, laughing and dining in a gracious, unhurried environment, and they lingered over their steaming cappuccini and a heavenly, light tiramisu. They left all aglow, with a lovely in-house-designed menu to commemorate the event.

A horribly managed place, with a racist and vile owner/ head chef. The staff is treated poorly, and the customers mocked. Enjoy.
