As I have overseas friends coming to stay at Resorts World Sentosa for a week, I managed to find this restaurant where I can bring them for lunch.
In my opinion, Palio has successfully showcased the uniqueness and traditional taste of Italian culture. With relatively big servings, the meal would definitely be value-for-money. Service is warm and the staff is able to effectively recommend several signature dishes which are exclusive to Palio. Most importantly, the ambience is excellent for diners who seek a cozy and peaceful dining environment.
As for the food, I ordered Porcini, a cream mushroom soup. I have heard about how Porcini is being highly appreciated in Italian cooking. But still, I was quite amazed by how the dish turned out. With a thick soup base, Porcini has a pretty rich Tuscan taste which stays in your mouth. The cream-based soup is a strong alternative for diners who do not like tomato-based soups. There are also small bits of mushrooms that give it a nice texture. The serving is relatively generous, compared to some other restaurants which I have dined at before. It is a must-try for mushroom lovers!
Being a pasta lover, I didn’t hesitate to call for Pici, which is one of Palio's signature dishes. Served with crayfish meat and zucchini in saffron cream sauce, the dish appears to be a unique blend between Western and Central Asia. The hay-like and sweet saffron is the key leader of the pasta sauce, with little elements of usual cream sauce. In addition, its luminous appearance makes the entire dish very appealing. The traditional pasta is served in shorter but thicker pieces and it is evenly mixed with the pasta sauce. With a hearty portion, the dish can be quite filling.
All in all, my friends and I had a really great time catching up at Palio and I will definitely be back for a second try!
