While visiting Ann Arbor with friends, we noticed that patio dining existed on the rooftop/second floor of this corner restaurant offering a variety of Italian dishes. Each of us ordered a different dish but first we were presented with Zingerman's bread with a rich flavor...More

You still cannot beat the birthday special, 50% off food (for two people) and a free cannoli (to take home when too full). We sat on the upstairs patio, starting with the peach sangria, followed by the mushroom, arugula, pesto crostini, followed by the veal...More

Palio is located downtown, on Main Street, in Ann Arbor. The food was quite good. The service was good and friendly, but odd. For example, our waitress was very nice, but she opened our bottle of wine and offered the tasting sample to a person...More

The thin crust pizzas are great and overflowing with toppings. Lots of food! The service was friendly, but a little slow. Thet were very busy. Seek out the outdoor rooftop patio for a relaxing dining experience.

Description
Previous Next Authentic Tuscan Dishes Born in September of 1991, Palio is a country-style, Italian restaurant featuring authentic Tuscan dishes. Named for the famous horse race that runs yearly through Siena, Italy, a record is even kept of the race's winners on a mural along the back dining room wall. During summer, Palio boasts Ann Arbor's largest and most popular outdoor gathering spot on its rooftop patio - Palio Del Sole. Offering the best view of Ann Arbor's energetic downtown nightlife, Palio Del Sole is fully equipped with its own cucina and offers a unique menu that is completely different from Palio downstairs. There simply is no better Al Fresco dining experience on a warm summer evening in Ann Arbor.
