Palazzio was a wonderful Italian restaurant that now sadly has been closed -- we enjoyed the honor wine dispenser and the active service. No longer...

Palazzio has a great location on State Street. It looks small from the street, but it's actually huge inside. The portions are ginormous - so order one entree for 2 or 3 people. We had great entrees of pasta, chicken, and vegetables. We ordered a small Caesar salad to share, and we still had tons leftover after indulging. GREAT service.... More

Very good and lots of it. You can get four meals from one full order. You can also order a half and split it. With 14 colleges in the area it is a great place to take college students who can eat a full meal by themselves. And it taste fabulous. The staff is awesome.

Let's be clear, the 1/2 orders are enough for 2 people. The full orders could feed a family of 4 (at least my family)...food was flavorful, add in the great, fresh rolls and great attentive servers...pleasant experience. Can't believe we ordered dessert....!

We had ambled along the main street and were ready for a light lunch - we liked the cheerful decor and extensive menu of Palazzio so gave it a try. I had a generous half portion of seafood pasta and my husband had penne roasted Italian sausage. Our food was very tasty and delivered quickly as the restaurant wasn't crowded.... More
