Food is ok. Nothing special. Only Italian place in town. Go here only if other restaurants are booked.

My wife and I have always enjoyed Palio’s. In its new incarnation it’s better than ever. We arrived early Sunday night. We were the only ones there. (And you know how that usually works out.) After getting over slight sticker shock, we ordered. We shared...More

We shared the daily special appetizer of spicy fried shrimp--delicious! I had the seafood platter--grilled lobster, shrimp, and scallops, plus mashed potatoes--it was divine. My wife had the salmon, and substituted the pesto linguine for the gnocchi--she loved it. We also had a California chardonnay...More

The food is lack luster. They attempt to drink you to upper class Italian food. The food would be better if it were not so bland. Portions are small, but I have to say the coffee is great. Order cappuccino and you will be in...More

Palio is a great place for an amazing dinner. We have dined here on several occasions for date night. The food and drinks are excellent and the ingredients are super fresh.

Figured we'd try out this place for our 10-year anniversary. We got there around the closing time so we were the only customers in the restaurant. Service was great - the server was really nice and knowledgeable. As far as food, it was okay. Not...More

Our group decided to try this restaurant after a years-long break and expected an Italian menu. It's re-branded as The Tasting Room and the cheap, single sheet paper menu is a hodge podge of food styles and mixed messages. Entree's were listed as medium plates,...More

The reason for 3 stars is inconsistency in the food and service. Very nice atmosphere and I have had great meals over the years and average at best meals as well. Service is also inconsistent. On one visit, dinners were served 20 minutes apart. Not...More

We end up here sometimes because of the convenience, but honestly, we don't really like this restaurant. The food is extremely expensive for the quality. A glass of wine is also very expensive. The piano player is cool, but way too loud for the size...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.
