Italian
The elegant balance we value in wine, the quality of celebration inherent in its welcome, inspire palate harmonies that are Virginian in resources and Northern Italian in perspective, in country dining of vivacity and refinement. Here the estate of wine is inhabited at its most seamless and complete, sustained behind the scenes by the rarest collaboration of colleagues gifted in cuisine, viticulture, horticulture and service.

Absolutely perfect lunch to celebrate our anniversary. We had the white and red sample flight in order to taste a variety of Barboursville's wines. The staff was extremely accommodating of my wife's dietary needs, even bringing gluten-free crackers in lieu of bread. They surprised us with an anniversary dessert, beautifully presented and also dairy and gluten free to suit our needs. Thanks for making our visit to Barboursville special. Each plate was gorgeous and perfectly prepared.

Very enjoyable birthday celebration with a friend. Loud people at the next table. Servers seemed stretched to cover the tables but were friendly and efficient. Nice touch on the birthday menus and the dessert presentation.

Everytime we are driving to Charlottesville we stop for lunch @ Palladio (and buy wine @ Barboursville). Excellent hospitality & food. Octagon pairings are a great way to try 3 vintages. Hope to return soon.

Palladio NEVER disappoints! From the greeting by Alessandro to the innovative menu and the always outstanding wines our group of 4 ladies was delighted with all! The new Nascent paired beautifully with the lobster and scallion medallions!

Palladio is a wonderful restaurant at Barboursville Vineyards. We had the recommended wine pairings with the appetizers, first courses, and second courses, and they were so good we bought some bottles to take home. The food was excellent, and the portion sizes are small enough to sample all of the courses (although we ended up sharing one dessert).

Other than a rather long wait when first seated to have water brought, service was excellent.
The food is quite good and we thoroughly enjoyed our first two courses (mussels in Vermentino and veal ravioli in brown butter sauce) but the lobster and scallop medallions were a bit dry from, I suspect, sitting under a heat lamp. The espresso at the end of the meal was one of the best I've ever had anywhere (including Italy). I definitely see a return trip in our future.

We chose Palladio for lunch to be able to eat while tasting the great Barboursville wine. Our pasta was good.
Our server was rude and ignored us completely so much so that we complained to the winery personnel.

It looked lovely, but we had asked for outdoor seating, never heard back from them to say they didn't have any. Drove all the way there just to find out our only option was to sit inside close to other diners. We asked to take it to go and sit out at picnic table at the property but they wouldn't do that. And they didnt help us find any other options at the property's other locations. I get that spaces have limitations, but it is a pandemic and some people arent comfortable with indoor dining. I think they could have been more accommodating/flexible with finding a solution for us that felt safe to everyone.

We enjoyed our meal at Palladio. The food was amazing- loved how they started off with some Prosecco. The bread was good... thought it was a bit strange that we had to find our own salt and pepper, olive oil and vinegar. In fact, we felt the hospitality was very lacking. We were never greeted by our "waiter." He simply came to the table after a long while and said, "Do you have any questions?" Not even- Good evening? Or welcome? Very odd. That being said- all our food and wine was delicious. We shared the Insalata Mista con Formaggio Blu, Pere e Noci Tostate, and it was yummy. I had the Tortino di Quinoa e Zucchine, which was really unique and good. My husband had the Ravioli del Plin, and it was delicious as well. We also shared the brussel sprouts. Food was amazing- just didn't feel welcome persay.

5 Star ambience. Only food complaint was ragout was partially burnt. Mushroom pasta was excellent. Felt a light red wine would have been a better pairing than the white that was recommended. Portions were generous,so we would recommend sharing. An elegant lunch in an elegant setting .
Also enjoyed the sparking wine pairing in the Library before lunch. One might also consider a multi wine tasting flight with their light culinary offerings.
A most gracious experience, Tom and Anne

Palladio is one of my favorite places anywhere for lunch or dinner. Impeccably sourced local ingredients (some from the estate itself), house-made pastas, a regional Italian menu, Barboursville’s remarkable wines, professional but warm service, and a vineyard setting —there are only things to like here.

The gentleman who checked us in was incredibly haughty and seemed inconvenienced that we were there. He was frankly quite rude and given the current pandemic did not seem at all flexible about accommodating a member of the party who was concerned about the covid protocols. Felt like they didn’t actually want any guests. The person who was our sever, was great and the food was excellent.
