We love Palomino's. You can never go wrong with their food. Love their pasta. They have a really good happy hour too. Get a seat by the window that over looks Fountain Square.

Granted, it was Valentine's weekend, so the place was busy, but our party of 4 was there early in the evening (5:00) and the service was still very slow and unattentive. We had a couple of appetizers which were good (calamari and bruschetta), but 3 of us were finished with our drinks before the waitress ever brought the 4th beverage. We also found it disappointing that we were unable to either get into the bar or order the bar menu items in the restaurant. We were all in the mood for wood-fired pizza but couldn't get it in the main restaurant . . .

We went there for lunch and had a wonderful window view of Fountain Square, while we ate a delicious Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich with Avocado & Shoestring fries. We also had one of their Amazing Artisan Pizzas. Great Service by Tieo. You can't go wrong, they have a New Manager (Nelson) that brings a Wealth of Experience.

We ate at Palomino prior to a show at the Aronoff. We were seated next to the window which gave you a nice view of Foubtain Square.
They offer a preshow special that's designed to get you in and out in time to make the curtain.
It's limited to 3 appetizers, 3 or 4 soups and salads and 4 or 5 entrees, along with a couple of dessert selections. The service was very good. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. I chose the chicken parmigiana which was very tasty. The pre show menu was $50 per couple and with drinks and tip we were in and out for $85.00. I would certainly come back again. This is a great spot for a special night out!

My family goes to Palomino the day after Thanksgiving every year. It is always nice to sit by the window and watch the Christmas tree on Fountain Square light up while having dinner. The meatball appetizer is always great and definitely my favorite...nice and spicy. The Chefs choice menu had some new items. I had the Tilapia Oreganoto. It was delicious! The best part of all was how great our server was. Stacey was exceptional and took great care of us as well as having a wonderful attitude. Looking forward to a few shots the next time I am there! Everyone was friendly and made us feel welcome. All the food was delicious. I will be back!
