Nice Italian

My husband and I took a road trip over Labor Day weekend. We stopped here based on the many good reviews and we were not disappointed. Pasta was good and the service was very friendly.

We recently went to Vermont to visit family and went to dinner at The Palms. The service was great, the atmosphere warm, and the food excellent! We had a wonderful evening and will be sure to make another visit when we are in Vermont.

Great Neapolitan Antipasto! We held an event in their new sports lounge, the 1933 Lounge, that turned out wonderful. The salmon, chicken and New York strip steaks were cooked to perfection. The staff is friendly and provide great service. Thank you to Diane and the staff for taking such good care of our family.

The waitress was very attentive but we had mixed experience on the food. Drink service was quick and well done. The waitress was always smiling and upbeat and had an urge to please.

Sit in the bar, reservations recommends but often not needed. A local establishment that serves friends and family, good food in a relaxed comfortable setting.
