Ordered a Large "Classic Pizza" and all 3 of us enjoyed it. Saw several folks picking up orders to go in addition to customers enjoying Pizza, salads, etc. in the restaurant. Have had better pizza but this was good/very enjoyable.

I though it was nice that the owner responded to my review and decided to give it a second chance. I ate at there this time and ordered the same things... same result. Awful!! two exclamation points. Didn't finish the meal, left without saying a word. Sorry. If you enjoy the food keep going back. If you have never been... More

First off, I am a foodie and very critical. Ordered food to go. Simple order of Chicken Parm, and thin crust veggie pizza. The pizza was so soggy. Thin crust, soggy pizza? It was terrible. I've had a pie here once before and it was decent, but nothing more than that. The chicken parm... I will try not to swear...... More

Hi Mark, First off, thank you for being a customer. I am glad that you at least enjoy our patio and BYOB. However, I am very sorry that you were not happy with your food ordered to go. There are some of the specialty pizzas that we serve that retain their crispiness best at table-side vs. to-go. Some of the... More

Chain serving creative pizzas plus pastas & salads in casual surrounds with a patio & BYOB policy. I love the Greek salad, the Chicken il Palio, and of course the garlic cheese bread. Awesome desserts too, like Deep Dish Pizza Cookie with ice cream, and Caramel Turtle Cheesecake. My husband likes the lasagna very much. Sometimes the service can be... More

I love to meet my neighbors here for both lunch and dinner. The lunch specials are very affordable and include a drink. At dinner, we share wonderful pizza's and dessert ( I don't love their salads) and we bring our own wine!!! A fun and affordable night with our favorite people, close to home. Check it out.

We have purchased Groupons for this location several times and especially enjoy the patio here. It's tucked back away from the street and a very pleasant place to eat. The Greek Salad is a favorite as well as just about every pizza we have ordered. BYOB is a big bonus too...we just take our own cooler and are good to... More

I love their gluten free crust. I love that you can bring your own bottle of wine and I love the patio. I don't like that the place seems to only have teenagers running it. The atmosphere isn't necessarily friendly but we have never had a bad experience. I will keep returning for the gluten free pizza because it is... More

I've been eating their pizza for a year. Some of the best pizza I ever ate. Pricey but worth in UNTIL lately. The girls taking the orders are not very excited. Kinda of short and matter of fact. Last time I order a pizza was in the middle of the afternoon. When I picked it up and got home it... More

Anytime I go into a new eating establishment I judge them by two sandwiches, if they offer them: gyros and chili burger. Palio's offers a gyros so I ordered it. Folks, I have eaten gyros sandwiches my entire life, and that's a pretty good long way. What I was served came no where close to any of the other gyros... More

Was so happy to discover this place! Gluten free pizza is amazing! Kids loved all the pasta dishes they had and kept asking when we were going back. The service was also amazing. Great friendly staff!
