I was so happy to find pizza in VT. I was with four other people that all like different types of pizza, and we all loved it! It's so fun to look at the walls and see all the history of the area. Yay!! Now I can stay forever!

I was skeptical of Italian food in Vermont, but it turned out to be quite good! My companion ate light: chicken wings without sauce, and a large antipasto as his entree. He was very happy! I ate a bit heartier, with salad, steak pizzaiola and cappellini. Salad was very fresh, but nothing special. The steak, however, was terrific! A nice... More

I ordered spaghetti Fra Diablo with meatballs. Large portion, two nicely sized meatballs, spicy enough to be delicious, but comfortable to eat. The salad was crisp and green and the merlot was just right. The staff was great. I've eaten here before, I will eat here again.

I get to the Rutland area at least once a year and try never to miss stopping at the Palms for dinner. Great Italian food, lots of variety on the menu from classic Italian dishes to steaks and seafood. I love the lasagna!

Recently my husband and I ate at The Palms Restaurant twice for retirement parties and both times we were pleased with the delicious food, service and atmosphere. Our drinks were refreshed constantly and the food was served with grace and pleasantness that made everyone comfortable at all the tables. Before dinner we were able to mingle and walk around our...

We went into here with some trepidation. As a pair of lost and hungry Englishmen in a small town in vermont, this place wasn't inviting from the roadside ,but we were tired and needed to eat. Inside, our spirits were raised. The service was outstanding. The waitress who showed us to the table took the time to explain some of... More

We were told that this restaurant has been in the same family for many years. To do that, you have to be doing something right. We decided it was the service and food. We didn't have reservations but they were nice enough to find a table for us. My husband had the spaghetti with meatballs and a sausage link. He... More
