We have been going to the dining room for years--since it opened! Had our son's wedding rehearsal dinner in the lovely room upstairs and the office Christmas party in the lowest rooms. But this winter we stopped in for a late supper and sat at the bar for the first time----and have been going back almost weekly--but we insist on sitting at the bar---Sue sets a lovely linen place for us and has our drinks ready!----always a smile and then that great food......!

Pros: Bartender Sue, wonderful food

Cons: not open on Sunday

I used to visit Il Palio quite frequently for lunch and dinner. I tried to be objective with the new menu.

However, my husband and I were very disappointed when we ordered from the menu. Some of our favorite dishes were taken off the menu and the new salad with chicken is less than to be desired...the dressing is terrible and the portion is half the size.

It was great to go there and meet friends for karaoke and happy hour. Sue and Bill are great bartendars on Thursday's downstairs! The place used to be packed. Since they took away the happy hour pizza and pasta (which probably costs them next to nothing) and also the bar menu, the place is not what it used to be. Very disappointing.

I will stop in occassionally to have a drink and say hello, but not for lunch or dinner.

Il Palio Restaurant is the finest Italian dining experience you'll find in Shelton. A perfect date place. Very nice bar and wonderful food. Not cheap by any means, but totally worth every cent you'll spend. No disappointments here!

Upon entering the gracious foyer you feel like you are transported to Italy. The hostess was charming and sweet. Once you pass the door you are seated in the lovely dining room. That is when the experience turns - the server was nasty and arrogant - acting like he was the customer. The food was delivered and was mediocre at best. We sent our dish back and were told no one ever sends their food back. Literally two minutes later the table next to us sent their food back too... I guess Mr. Knowitall was wrong. Bad experience - go somewhere else.

I've been dining at Il Palio since it opened several years ago. I've had party's for 50, business lunches for 35, dinners for 4 - 6, and intimate Valentine dinners with my wife, and I have never had a less then exceptional experience. The food has been excellent, and service has always been above reproach. The restaurant is beautiful (the bathrooms downstairs are worth a special trip...) the entry bar is a bit small, and they should do away with the TV - definitely spoils the ambiance, and the wine list is pricey, but a bit limited for this type of restaurant. I recommend it unhesitatingly.

Our second time around. We heard new owner and management. It is such a beautiful place we decided to give it another chance. It was just as bad as first time. We waited two hours for our food which was over priced and nothing special. Heard the female manager yelling at the waiters from the kitchen like it was their fault. What a waste of atmosphere and money. Stay home, save your money. This space would better used as office space!! Its a black-eye for Shelton!

Atmosphere, breathtaking elegance. The staff very plesant and professional. The food outstanding. I started with Carpaccio, very tasty and just enough. My husband had the bruschetta. It was hard getting him to share. The Insalata Arugula was our choice for salad, very good choice also. For our entree we shared the Fiorentina for 2...words can hardly describe. Cooked to perfection, presentaion beautiful and so much flavor. If your looking for a place to be treated like royalty or impress a client, visit this jewel in shelton you won't be dissapointed!!!
