“Good value”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This restaqurant is always consistently good. I eat there at luchtimes with a group of colleagues, and since they don't close in the afternoons this suits the long jolly sessions we have.

Its good value compared to the other offerings in Tunbridge Wells, and I can have a lunchtime special of two course and a glass of wine for the price of a starter in some of the more up-market restaurants in town.

The staff are very friendly and look after us very well. I really do like the place.

“Superb!! Authentic tasty Italian food, great friendly attentive service”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Group of 4 of us, good range of specials, pizza, pasta, desserts, beer, wine and coffee!!
Friendly Italian staff!
Nicely decorated clean interior and toilets.
Good choice of background music.
Between us, we had Melazane parmigiana - highly recommended, spaghetti lobster delicious. Lasagne and bolognaise yummy, skate wings, scallops. Home made ice cream and cheese and biscuits.
Nothing at all to fault!! Worth the 30 minute drive !!
Parking at multistorey royal victoria within walking distance.
Seriously impressed :)

“Authentic Italian”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We went here in December and I completely forgot to review my meal. It was our first visit to Palio and will not be our last, everything was homemade genuine italian food. You must save room for puddings they are amazing. We were also given a free shot of limoncello Thank you Palio we will be back.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

I went to Palio with my dad, it was fully booked but we had a fast dinner before clients arrived.
I was very undecided, everything looked mouthwatering from menu', we had a seafood starter(squid+prawns), than he had a pizza, it was very tasty! And I had a seafood pasta with a hint of oriental-asian spices that I love, ginger and lime.. and was more than delicious, I would have had another one!!! I'm italian so I tried to do that pasta at home when I came back to italy but it wasn't as good as theirs unluckily..
The semifreddo was also good.
I would recommend it to anyone living in the area.
