I must say this place hit the jackpot for location. And isn't that what its all about? Location location location. I was traveling here for business and this restaurant is snap dab in the middle of a parking lot surrounded by multiple business buildings! The outside of the restaurant is well maintained and the building is unique. I was excited... More

I work at the Corporate towers so going to Il Palio is literally a short walk. Even if it isn't, it is worth the ride. They have great lunch specials that are well priced. It is a very good business lunch atmosphere. Service is very good. Lunch is consistently a great meal and experience. The pizza is very good if... More

this lovely restaurant has terrific service and wonderful food and wine. We've enjoyed their specials previously and again, they were just great. Some regular menu items are also really good to. We appreciate the assistance of the server and manger in choosing wines that compliment the dishes. Overall, lovely dining experience.

Two friends and I went to Il Palio for lunch after blueberry picking at Jones Farm. I mention this because you can imagine that coming from the fields we looked a bit bedraggled. To the credit of Il Palio's great staff, they greeted us warmly without the proverbial batting an eyelash. They seated us quickly and on offer was a... More

I had a graduation lunch with a fellow MBA graduate from Quinnipiac University here in May. The food was exceptional. The desserts were out of this world. The atmosphere was very pleasant. My only criticism was that I arrived a few minutes early and the host didn't want to seat me until my guest arrived. I found that a little... More

We were in the area for some family business. Hungry for really authentic good Italian food, my sis-in-law discovered this place. I don't thing we would have found it if not for TripAdvisor. It's in a business park. Saturday night and the place was packed! Despite this, the service and food was fantastic. It was a bit noisy but as... More

We recently attended a family celebration at Il Palio and, being from out of town, I had no idea what to expect. Il Palio was an amazing surprise on every level. The evening began in their downstairs function room which is a beautiful setting surrounded on two sides by glass walls. A smaller, adjoining room contained the bar and an... More

My wife and I ate here two weeks ago and had one of the best restaurant experiences in a while here in CT. We were seat by a friendly hostess and then greeted by our waiter whose name I wish I remembered as he was one of the best waiters we have had. Shortly thereafter the sommelier came, and again...
