We had picked up my college age cousin to take her out to dinner, seeing as we were travelling through the area. We had no reservation, and there was an event in town, but they still sat us. The dinner was quickly served, hot and fresh. Between the three of us we had pork, salmon, and seafood diavalo. The pork... More

I ate here on a Thursday. Most of the tables were occupied, a good sign to me. I had chicken Piccata; a good choice. I lunched the next day on the leftovers of the burger my wife had; also good. Service was friendly.

I have been here several times and it never disappoints. I had the skirt steak and it was excellent. The veal parm is a go to meal as well. The 12 oz streak is also excellent.

Selected this restaurant as a recommendation from a local hotel. Called ahead to see if the establishment had gluten free pasta - yes, penne. From the interaction on the phone, to the entering the restaurant and being seated, very friendly and pleasant. Apps were delicious, main course great tasting, waitress friendly and smiling (very authentic), desserts plentiful and tasty. Electric... More

I love Italian food, so when we came upon this restaurant at 6:30 pm on Saturday night after a long day of watching a truck show at the fairgrounds, I was happy. The restaurants on Route 4 were full with folks from the truck show, so we ventured downtown, though we don't know the area. The green awning toting Italian,... More

Generally when I go out to eat, Italian is not an ethic food im particularly fond of. This restaurant changed that.

The Palms is a local favorite for a reason. They have a varied menu, reasonably priced with a good atmosphere and great service. They are an Italian specialty restaurant, and it is no surprise that they serve pizza, pasta and Italian dishes. I had Chicken Marsala, and my wife Chicken Parmigiana, both were very enjoyable, well cooked, with more than... More

If you want a relaxed environment in downtown Rutland with courteous staff and good food, this is the place. Staff is experienced and customers return, so you know this is a good place for family fare.

We tried the Palms at Prospect Point last night with a small group. It was our first time since they opened under new management. (Trip Advisor would not allow me to review this restaurant as such, so I am including my review here, under The Palms, but it should be separate.) The food was generally good, but the service and...

We went to Rutland from Londonderry, just to see what we could see. It was a beautiful day till it started pouring buckets of water on us! We ran into the Palms, just to have a drink. We ended up staying for dinner. The decor is very nice. Our server was ShiAnne. She is VERY beautiful, very earthy. Me and... More
