The all glass reception room is a very beautiful view. The food is well prepared with a beautiful presentation. Always ask the waiter/ waitress for suggestions to try a new dish or deserts. Best place to visit for a candlelight dinner.

I had two $50 gift certificates for Il Palio which I received last October. I went with my sweetheart for lunch a few months ago. Too upscale for me. The lunch items all sounded very delicious, so I decided upon crab ravioli. Pricey for the...More
