We had looked at reviews before choosing this restaurant for our dinner after a long drive. It was easy to drive to and find and did not need a reservation. We had the veal dish and shrimp bagel hair. The shrimp dish was absolutely amazing and would highly recommend it is you like fine pasta and shell fish.

Food was great. Portion size was decent, not huge (but I don't need huge) Service was good. They take reservations. Very accommodating for our party of 6, they even provided separate checks for each of us.

My wife and I had seen the great reviews regarding Palumbo's so we decided to give it a go and we were very glad we did. From the friendly greeting to the hand and arm waving good-bye, it was a great experience. We started out with the fried calamari, which was good, but what made it great, and unusual for... More

Our party of 8 tried a variety of dishes, mostly pasta varieties ranging from straight meatballs with red sauce to linguine with clams. Every dish was tasty and well-prepared. Our server was pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere was excellent for our purposes -- a quick family reunion -- because the noise level was relatively low, the lighting was high enough... More

Our server was good and the food was decent, but it was nothing to get excited about. If you're in the mood for Italian food this place will suffice, but don't expect a meal that blows you away. The interior is nicely decorated, but not romantic ambiance.

Delicious food, great service, quiet and fully enjoyable. Whether you choose outdoor dining on the patio or inside, the experience is equally enjoyable.

This is one of the better restaurants in old town. We make it a point to have dinner here when we are in town. A warm atmosphere that is nice for lunch or dinner. On a nice day sitting outside is a treat. The food, service and setting makes it worth coming to.

I took my daughter and her fiancée here because I wanted to get a quick dinner in the kids. I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the gnocchi because I eat GF - and I have to say it was awesome. I grew up making gnocchi with my grandma so I had high expectations. These guys did a good job. The... More
