First Class food. Great service from a friendly outstanding staff. Comfortable atmosphere. Love this place.
This is my very fav restaurant. It is a true dining experience. I feel transported to a friendly restaurant in Italy. In a league of its own.
Wonderful dinner celebrating our Anniversary. Visiting CT and used recommendations to choose this restaurant. Food and service were wonderful. We were served quickly but not rushed. We would definitely visit again!!
My wife and I shared a fabulous evening with 2 friends of ours... Both couples having been to Il Palio on a number of occasions earlier... but tonight was really another level. The staff was very helpful and well prepared for us... the food choices were not typical which we all enjoyed.
Always the best... not a restaurant close to this place in all Shelton!!!
Excellent thank you
The food here is just delicious! We enjoyed the prix fixe lunch.
Always a better than expected experience. The cuisine has never disappointed in any way, from choice to presentation to quality of ingredients. The service is always a cut above.
The only minor negative was a somewhat bland mixed drink. The description held promise, but I was somewhat underwhelmed.
No matter - the experience is exceptional.
Excellent restaurant, from the entry till we left we were treated royally. The food was delicious, the server was friendly and accommodating. will go again very soon. thanks for a delightful evening.
Every day dining made special, from the moment we enter. It’s like having a delicious meal amongst family and friends. A local gem!
Tuscan villa in an unlikely office complex but beautiful setting. Authentic Italian using fresh seasonal ingredients. The service was spot on, very accommodating. This restaurant could stand up against NYC restaurants or any upscale restaurants anywhere but with reasonable prices. Very special place.
Il Palio continues to impress at all levels. We love the seasonal rotation on the menu. Margherita is AMAZING with her pairings on food. Presentation is always spot on, and the wait staff (Dominick and Claudio) make the whole meal relaxing, enjoyable and amazing. We will always be back!!
I was really expecting it to be better than it was! First of, the restaurant is beautiful but I felt the food was just good and that's really a shame considering the potential. Appetizers were good but 5 out of the 7 people in our party said their entrees were bland and tasteless. Service was very good but couldn't make up for the bland food.
We were visiting from out of state and what a wonderful choice. Ambience, food, waiter Jose and rest of staff were superb.
Excellent, but extremely expensive
Always a great meal and beautiful atmosphere! It is a little pricey, but worth it.
A charming restaurant, attractive decor, creative and delicious food, and gracious, attentive service. A favorite.
Birthday very good service and the food is spectacular
Always a pleasure. Cliff and Margherita have a fantastic restaurant that doesn't disappoint.
The only place I eat lasagna outside of my own kitchen.... homemade and phenomenal !!!!
Such a lovely place to have dinner! Our friends from Arizona had spent the day in traffic, so the atmosphere at Il Palio was quite soothing and the food was delicious! One of my favorites!
One of our favorites. No comparison in the area. We come often and always an excellent meal.
Lunch on the patio was terrific and the service was outstanding! Looking gyro dinner there very soon. Two thumbs up👍👍
I was greeting by Cliff, who immediately made me feel as welcome as an old friend. I'd have to say, it was amazing how kind and thoughtful Cliff is. I confided some personal news, and he lit up with approval. When meeting someone like Cliff is the beginning of an evening, one immediately senses, this is going to be a special event. It was.
Thanks, Cliff. Look forward to seeing you and your staff soon.
With much appreciation,
It was a wonderful lunch and our server/bus person was wonderful however once we received our dessert we didn’t see him again and after a long while had to ask the bus person to find him for our check.
Food was great as usual!
A great dinner as usual, parking is easy, the staff is friendly. We enjoyed ourselves.
Il Palio is a Shelton gem. Always a great meal. First class in all regards.
Il Palio was excellent! We sat outside on the patio and it was lovely. The food was awesome, especially dessert! I always say they have the best dessert menu I've ever seen. Always a great evening!
I met a group of friends there for lunch. It was superb. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The salmon was delicious! We definitely will be back.
Fantastic as always... great new salads at lunch.
My wife and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first time at this restaurant and we will definitely come back. Our waiter, Dominic, was amazing and the food was incredible in both quality and quantity!
Fantastic meal, beautiful presentation, impeccable service at a beautiful venue! Definitely our new favorite.
Food was as usual excellent. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Thanks for everything.
It’s been years since my last visit to Il Palio. It was worth the wait. A visit to I; Palio is a total experience. We were greeted enthusiastically by the host. Since we arrived early, we asked to be seated in the bar area for a pre-dinner drink. The bartender came over to our table to say hi and take our drink order. Happy to find one of my favorite Pinot Noirs on the wine list. We requested outdoor seating for dinner, and were given a great table. Our waiter Juan was attentive and friendly, as were all the servers. Crispy artichoke hearts appetizer was light and tasty. My entree was Filet Mignon, hers was Swordfish. Both were absolutely delicious. This restaurant is just a few miles from the house, we’ll be coming here again and again. Highly recommended.
My friend & I had an amazing lunch. The service was terrific & the food was beautifully presented & delicious. We both had the risotto wit seafood special. Delicious!
I really enjoyed my eve at this restaurant. A drink at the bar upon arriving was welcoming . The female bartender was warm and friendly. The table for 4 was cozy . Service attentive and did not rush us. Food fresh and delicious
Wanted to try somewhere new and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was nicely decorated with a intimate romantic setting. The Patio was open however we opted to dine inside. The food was amazing, we started with 3 small plates (appetizers) to share. My wife was able to order 1/2 order entrees choosing two different meals allowing her to have variety with her meal. I highly reccomend this establishment for a night out.
