Great little place to meet the neighbors at!!

I love to meet my neighbors here for both lunch and dinner. The lunch specials are very affordable and include a drink. At dinner, we share wonderful pizza's and dessert ( I don't love their salads) and we bring our own wine!!! A fun and affordable night with our favorite people, close to home... read more

Chain serving creative pizzas plus pastas & salads in casual surrounds with a patio & BYOB policy. I love the Greek salad, the Chicken il Palio, and of course the garlic cheese bread. Awesome desserts too, like Deep Dish Pizza Cookie with ice cream, and Caramel Turtle Cheesecake. My husband likes the lasagna very much. Sometimes the service can be... More

We have purchased Groupons for this location several times and especially enjoy the patio here. It's tucked back away from the street and a very pleasant place to eat. The Greek Salad is a favorite as well as just about every pizza we have ordered. BYOB is a big bonus too...we just take our own cooler and are good to... More

I love their gluten free crust. I love that you can bring your own bottle of wine and I love the patio. I don't like that the place seems to only have teenagers running it. The atmosphere isn't necessarily friendly but we have never had a bad experience. I will keep returning for the gluten free pizza because it is... More

I've been eating their pizza for a year. Some of the best pizza I ever ate. Pricey but worth in UNTIL lately. The girls taking the orders are not very excited. Kinda of short and matter of fact. Last time I order a pizza was in the middle of the afternoon. When I picked it up and got home it... More

Anytime I go into a new eating establishment I judge them by two sandwiches, if they offer them: gyros and chili burger. Palio's offers a gyros so I ordered it. Folks, I have eaten gyros sandwiches my entire life, and that's a pretty good long way. What I was served came no where close to any of the other gyros... More

Was so happy to discover this place! Gluten free pizza is amazing! Kids loved all the pasta dishes they had and kept asking when we were going back. The service was also amazing. Great friendly staff!

Stopped in with a Groupon, ordered Classic Pizza and Blackend Chicken Alfredo. Both were very good I can't decide which was better. The restaurant was clean, great decor and staff was excellent! This is now a weekly stop for us!

Palio's is close to work and home and has become my 'getaway' when I need a break from the day. The pizza is good and the calzones even better. They serve their calzone with a small tub of cold marinara sauce. However, if you ask, they will give you an entire bowl of piping hot sauce at no extra cost... More
