Nobody there at 6pm on Saturday should tell you something. Satellite radio in dining room was completely out of sync with the ambiance. Linguini with clams disgusting; served floating in a pool of greasy water. Lasagna was clearly frozen and reheated, reminded me of Stouffers....More

I went there with my mother once and the pasta was so bad (like mashed potatoes) we had to send it back. Decided not to eat there again. Went back recently however and the pasta was OK, but the bolognese sauce was not that, it...More

Nothing special considering the prices. We had the onion tart for appetizer and it was disappointing to say the least. The entrees weren't bad but they weren't great. For $30+ per dish I expected a lot more. We decided to skip the desert based on...More

Another very good dinner at Palio of Leesburg. My family was visiting from Hawaii and we wanted to take them to a special dinner. The prie fixe is always a great deal. For an average of $55 you get an appetizer, salad, main course and...More

I sat at the bar for a glass of wine and their tomato bisque. The bartender was very knowledgeable and let me try a few to get the right pick. She really knew about the wines, where they came from, and how they would taste....More

Located in downtown Leesburg this is a quaint bulding and good ambiance. The menu is varied and has good selection of Italian cuisine. The sauces tend to be on the spice side that suits my taste. Service is good and friendly.

We've eaten here a number of times. Four of us ate there on Valentine's day because other places filled up first. Some dishes are quite good, but others just OK. Service is generally excellent. Two prix fixe, plus two entrees, one bottle & 2 glasses...More

The award winning Palio Ristorante Italiano is a combination of three of the premier historic buildings in downtown Leesburg, Virginia. Palio provides Leesburg's newest venue for dining, entertaining, and banquet facilities. Palio has designed and built an establishment like no other in the Washington area, utilizing unique combinations of cherry wood, onyx, and antique mirrors and chandeliers. The design has been meticulously configured into the existing space in these historic buildings. 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.
