I enjoyed a very lovely meal with friends at the Palazzo Preca enough to choose it for a birthday meal with family. There were interesting specials and the starters were not the usual fare. Service was professional and I left both times satisfied with the experience. My only suggestion overall would be that perhaps the dining room itself needs a... More

We decided just before dinner to go to Palazzo Preca and we walked the one block from our apartment. Initially they said they were booked (bummer) but then the head wait person said we could take the table by the door as the couple who reserved it never showed up. We could only view the narrow hall to the kitchen,... More

From start to finish, this was a wonderful experience. The food, the service, the ambience were all superb. The indoor only restaurant is housed in an old building which has very high ceilings. It is attractive and cozy at the same time with tables in several rooms. Our server, Francesca, was outstanding. She was willing to speak to us about... More

Had a wonderful dinner at this place.We were given a place in the red room, which is very quiet room, with candles and background soft music; gives a romantic appeal. Ordered wine along with starter and main course. Staff was really friendly and attentive. Can't wait to revisit ! :D

Triggered by the good reviews on TA we made a reservation. The food was alright but not so special. A bit annoying was the hush hush service. Just a few minutes between the starter and main course. Not bad but definitely not a place to recommend.

We visited Palazzo Preca twice. The first time we had not booked and got the last table which is in a little corridor near the door - still had a great time but it is definitely worth booking as the second time we had a lovely table in a little room off to the side. Both times we had gorgeous... More

This was my first time at Palazzo Preca. We were warmly greeted by the waitress as soon as we stepped in. The architectural interior of the restaurant is impressive and unparalleled by nearby restaurants. The service by the waitress and another waiter was impeccable throughout and the food selection is great. Was truly impressed by the food quality which is... More
