My go to place for a great lunchtime calzone!

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... read more

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!

Stumbled onto this place by accident when taking my kids to a sporting activity so we thought we would try it out. What a home run !!!! Thin Crust Pizza is the best I have had in years and the service was FAST !... So when I say fast, the line was 12 people deep when we got there and... More

We go there because my husband likes it. He loves their jalapeño and sausage pizza. I'm not a huge fan. They have the thin crust I like, but somehow they just don't pull it off for me. Their salads are pre-made and sitting in a cooler area when you walk in, which is a real turn-off for me. You order... More

I went there with my wife on the weekend at night about 8:15. I sat down at the front booth and waited for service. I finally flagged down an employee and they told me you go to the counter and order. My wife went to the counter to place our order and I remained at the booth. There was food... More

Buyer Beware: Love Palio's but not this one! Worst In Metro, Horrible Management, Disconnected Owner. What a shame.

We had reservations for a party of 25. Arrived on time, room wasn’t ready. I personally talk to the owner many times before about the price for a buffet, well…. he changes the price at last moment. Food was passable; felt sorry for the people working there because they even said really bad things about the owner. Pizza was very... More

American pizzas are viewed as complete meals. I guess it explains why restaurants too often assume that their pizzas should comprise the five food groups! Palio is not different. I can enjoy an inventive pizza but many a time, when I study a pizza menu, the purist in me longs for a VERA PIZZA NAPOLETANA: crisp crust, fresh tomatoes, mozarella,... More

I've only been here once, but I loved the pizza. Had the all meat pizza which had a great flavor and the thin crust makes for a less filling pizza. My wife had a shrimp pasta which she said was good. Not a fancy place which is OK with me. Will definitely go back.

My wife and I reserved their room for a rehersal dinner for our son's wedding; we did this at least a month in advance. We confirmed the reservation in person the day before the event; all was good to go. We got their the night of the rehersal dinner and found our name had been removed from their calendar and...
