Consistently great dining experience! Nice atmosphere, great cocktail and wine menu, amazing food, and knowledgeable and friendly staff.
We loved it. All the food was amazing. Gluten free options too!
Impressive/pretty exterior and interior and the bathrooms are clean. Service was a bit odd. We started with one waiter, kitchen staff brought out dishes at different times, then our waiter left and we were waited on by someone else (it seemed as if our original waiter was sent home because of staffing, it was not crowded). The bill was >$200 for 3 people, which in and of itself was not a “shocker” but it just felt as if we were being shuffled from staff member to staff member and that made the experience a bit unpleasant. Given the many dining options in the vicinity, we probably won’t be back. The food was not bad, just ordinary. The highlight was the octopus carpaccio. The calamari was pedestrian and the herb that was fried that came with it had hard stems in it that if swallowed would have been like swallowing a needle. My “peartini” was served in a highball glass instead of in a martini glass. There were just too many “misses.” No si see the place was empty on a Friday night.
Enjoyed another delicious lunch.
The waitress checked and I was able to substitute an alternate fish for the daily special.
It was delicious. I will return.
We spent our Valentines dinner at Il Palio on Saturday evening with friends and everything was fantastic. The food was superb, great ambiance and outstanding service. Cant wait to head back!
Small portions. Left restaurant s
Great food but poor service. Waiters didn’t feel genuine and was tricked into buying a bottle of water (they removed from the bill after I told them I never ordered). The waiter acted extremely flustered the whole time. It was Vday but for a supposed upscale restaurant it left a lot to be desired, minus the food, which was great.
The waitress not with Malicious Internet continually called a group of professional women girls. We are professional limit and prefers to be called ladies or guest. Perhaps, it was her way of expressing friendliness. However, for women of color Referring to us as girls is in very poor taste and the wait staff should be trained properly how to greet its adult customers/guest -
Wonderful place. Very quiet. Very elegant. Wonderful food.
Lovely price fixed lunch menu!
WAITERS VERY FRIENDLY AND NICE BUT, GIVEN TOO MANY TABLES TO SERVE.
Never disappointed! Always the highest quality food and service.
It was fine.
It is extremely noisy when the room is full. My elderly mother had trouble hearing.
I wouldn't go back with her but will with my friends.
Overall this is one of my most my
Very noisy. Could hardly speak to friends.
We're a little disappointed after having dinner in Il Palio. The waiter was very helpful, but the food was not as good an tasty as we expected. We asked for fried calamari and zucchini, we expected them to be crunchy, but it was not the case. The pasta fradiavolo with seafood was almost raw and needed some salt.
Everything was as expected. This is a top notch eatery with great service and really good food. We felt welcomed and cared for from the moment we arrived to the time we left.
Great ambiance, food always outstanding in great setting
Always a great experience at I’ll Palio! The atmosphere is really lively yet intimate. The service is outstanding! The food is exceptional!
Service was top-notch for the most part with the exception that our food was brought out on the cool side. Yes, we should have said something, but we were hungry. Since there were 4 of us dining and everyone’s meal was cold, it is clear it had been sitting there for a bit. Otherwise, we had a reliably good time.
We LOVE Il Palio for lunch! Not only is it a great value, but the food is always excellent and just the right amount for what we SHOULD be eating. At our last visit the noise level was quite high; the first thing we commented on. Service, though friendly, was very slow. Not sure what happened. We had a reservation. The room we were in was packed. Our friend who came looking for us said their room was empty. Will definitely be back though. The biggest travesty was that after waiting a very long time, we were told that the coconut gelato was gone. Our lucky friend had it in her empty room!
The food, service and cocktails here are unequaled!
Thank you all for another enjoyable evening!
We had a great business lunch. Food was outstanding and service fantastic. Can’t wait to head back. Best Italian food in the State of CT!
Lack luster service... Cold food and stale bread... Very disappointing and tremendously overpriced!
Excellent lunch special. What a value! Would recommend to everyone.
Excellent meal and excellent waiter. We ordered a special drink but did not like it and it was taken off the bill. It was my sister's birthday and the waiter took note of the card I gave her during the meal and put a candle in her dessert and sang happy birthday with some of the staff!!
We celebrated New Year’s Eve with dinner at Il Palio. Service was excellent. Our food was delicious and the ambience was perfect for a quiet dinner to end the year.
Excellent atmosphere and superb service. Food was very good
Wonderful food and service
Beautiful, welcoming environment
Would highly recommend
Always great. Fresh pasta and fish that's tops Fairfield county.
I would and I do recommend it to friends. We always consider Il Palio as special place.
My husband loves the filet mignon. I try to choose different things to try them out. This past
Saturday I wasn't crazy about my choice of special which is odd but it was my choice.
We look forward to our next time.
Love this place, been before, service always outstanding, Ambiance is breathtaking. A classy place you can enjoy.
Our son from Florida came in for the holiday and we had a great dinner and conversation
Have been there a few times and have had really nice dinners. This time the food was mediocre.
Always an enjoyable experience and delicious food. Beautiful decor.
Food was delicious. But a special was $40 and had very few scallops. Usually specials are around $30
The experience is always way above average.
Great evening as always!!!
The food was excellent as usual but our server neglected to put our order in. We waited over 50 minutes before he realized it and finally put it in.
