We sat at the bar and were very pleased with the attention and friendliness of our bartender, Maria. We had several happy hour appetizers and drinks. I believe the happy hour runs from 3:00 - 7:00. We have also eaten dinner here which is some of the best Italian food in all of Loudoun County.
The theme of the Palio derives from the ancient horse race -beautiful and bold, risky and exciting, a feast for the eyes as well as the senses. Good music, a fine wine selection, house made pasta and bread prepared on site, and sourcing from local producers, can only be described as a beautiful experience- all presented in an historic setting that would be as comfortable in Italy as it is in Loudoun County.
