We went into here with some trepidation. As a pair of lost and hungry Englishmen in a small town in vermont, this place wasn't inviting from the roadside ,but we were tired and needed to eat.

Inside, our spirits were raised. The service was outstanding. The waitress who showed us to the table took the time to explain some of the unfamiliar local beers and the young waiter was charming, friendly and chatty.

The pasta was beautiful....but so much of it. They kindly offered a take home box and it made for a great picnic on the following day

I had the pasta with meatballs and another member of out party had the fettuccine Alfredo neither one of us could finish. while the others shared a large pizza, which was a thin crust and just great even the next day cold as we were driving a long

We were told that this restaurant has been in the same family for many years. To do that, you have to be doing something right. We decided it was the service and food. We didn't have reservations but they were nice enough to find a table for us.

My husband had the spaghetti with meatballs and a sausage link. He prefers hot sausage but their sweet wasn't bad. I had the linguine and clams with red sauce which was very good. The only thing is that one dish of pasta would be enough to feed the two of us for two nights at home. The bread was served warm with chopped garlic. I took some of the oil on the table and mixed it with the garlic and we had a dipping sauce which was great. We didn't eat that much of the pasta because we wanted dessert. We shared a piece of the chocolate morsel pie with ice cream and it was delicious.

Our server did a great job. Attentive but didn't hover over us.

If you love Italian food than this is the place to go. This restaurant has been a fixture in Rutland for many, many years. The same family has owned it since it opened. I believe it is the fourth or fifth generation now there. The pizza is so great and the perfect item to start your meal. The salad is made with the same dressing that was used when it was started. They keep the recipe a secret, but you can just tell it is a old family recipe. If you ever visit Rutland than one of the places you have to go to is the Palms.
