Love the food and the ambiance of this fine restaurant. Great for a business lunch or a family meal. Everything is properly prepared and properly served. My family has eaten here for years. Not just a pizza place. Try any of their chicken dishes.

We go here often and have never been disappointed. The antipasto appetizer is larger enough for a full mead. Sun dried tomato and bead is fabulous. Terrific pasta meals. AND GLUTEN free is available.

This place is great for pizza! Our favorite is the bacon, tomato and garlic pizza....yum! The crust is always crispy, always fresh and service is fast. They have a great outdoor seating area.... we actually prefer it since inside gets packed. One of our favorite spots in Lakeland. When we want pizza we think of Palace!

We weren't able to make it to Palace Pizza downtown so we decided to give this place a try. We were not disappointed by the authentic wood-fired oven pizza. We would definitely try this place again.

This locations is nice. Its worth going with the family and checking it out. I like the pizza better at the pizza palace downtown Lakeland. But as for as the rest of the food here is great. The portions are huge! My husband ordered the spaghetti, and he was only able to eat half of it, and he can eat... More

The Palace is a very good Italian restaurant located about 4 miles south of the downtown in a strip mall. The building is separate and probably designed for the restaurant though the ceiling is high suggesting a retail store. I was there with a large group of 26, mostly couples all at one long table, and as I was to... More

Yes, it's a Pizza place, but Italian food is half the menu. I had Chicken Alfredo and she had Spinach Ravioli Alfredo. They brought us both with a Marinara sauce, but immediately fixed both meals. Hers never hit the table and went back to the kitchen, but mine (in the Marinara) he'd been set down and they left it while... More
