Neighborhood: Rio Grande
Cuisine: Italian

This restaurant offers an intimate, romantic ambience, Northern Italian food, creative plates, live romantic music and an excellent wine list. Also very special is the traditional Boaccalino toasting. Seafood is the mainstay here but the duck is excellent. They offer predominantly traditional Northern Italian food, including a Gnocchi dish. Here you will find a very classic style, dimly lit with an impressive use of redwood in the decor.

  Upon entry the restaurant looks rather impressive. That, alas, was my only positive impression of a long and expensive evening at Palio. It took over 40 minutes to get our orders taken. I saw other people getting fed up and leaving and we should have done the same. The barman didn't seem to be in the mood to put alcohol in the drinks he served that night. The pasta was not al dente, but soggy. The "osso bucco" appeared in the guise of a casserole. We were told that mozzarella was part of the appetizers but it never arrived. Soup came cold in tiny coffee cups. The managers obviously know their clientele comes from the tourists in the nearby harbor and wont be returning, so there's no intention of pleasing the customer.
