After a long hard work week my husband and I decided to go to Pollio for dinner tonight for the third time. We don't make it to Leesburg often but when we do we will always come back to this amazing restaurant. Our appetizers and...More

Overpriced and not a good menu. Hardly anything to choose from and hardly anything on your plate. Yes, the portion was so tiny that when I got home, 1 hour after my meal at Palio's, I was hungry. Luckily, I had leftovers in my fridge...More

Overall our meal was very good. We opted for the prix fixe menu which included a starter, a salad, an entrée, and a dessert. Far too much food for just one person. Maybe they could consider lowering the overall price and having folks split an...More

This corner of historic downtown Leesburg has other high end restaurants,so Palio has its work cut out to compete. The food was prepared with care, but a little short of memorable. The upstairs dining room is a little hard to access if you are having...More

Had a wonderful meal at Palio this weekend. Prix fixe is a good way to go even if you take just 3 of the 4 courses unless you are having entree only. Generous portions with price to match. Extensive wine list. Knowledgeable waiter (Bill) with...More

Took five people to lunch yesterday. Charming waiter, but the food cost was off the wall. Paid about $25 for each LUNCH (total $210 with tip). The small portions were lunch size with a dinner menue price. They wisely do not put their menue and...More

Here is how it starts out. The waiter says we sell our wines for the same price as local grocery stores. Knew that was a lie to begin with. Just proved it. Ordered the 2011 Cataldi Madonna, Motepulciano d'Abruzzi for $45. Just got home and...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.
