Party of three people and before X'mas time so quite busy. Friends were from Maple Ridge but suggested Abbotsford as the Paliotti's in their area was quite small. Glad had made reservations as quite busy and half hour wait at least if you didn't. We ordered a couple of Calamaris and an Escargot which came out quickly. For entrees: we... More

It had been a while since we had been to Paliotti and that was more based on slow service then the food. The food has always been spot on but the service was a bit slow. We were pleasantly surprised this time as the service was spot on and food was sent out quickly. I had an amazing salmon dish... More

Paliotti's had a nice location in downtown Abbotsford. The restaurant has a family owned feel which is great. The restaurant is big so waiting times aren't ridiculous. The food is awesome!

You need to actually look for this restaurant; it is in Abbotsford old downtown which is a quaint area of this fine city but somewhat overlooked due to the emergence of other retail areas. The food is excellent and wide-ranging. The quality of the food was matched by the first rate service of the waitress.

Wow, another terrible Abbotsford restaurant. Service was good, and that was it. Only one beer on tap. I ordered meat tortellini in spicy red sauce. If you want to be an Italian restaurant then make your own pasta!! This was oliviera pasta that you would buy at Safeway. Gummy, crappy , tasteless garbage. Almost no sauce which was terrible. Portion... More

Worst service of any restaurant I have ever been to. Been there total of 4 times to see of coincidence...it's not. The manager does not care about Costomer service. The only good thing is the food quality- excellent. Would only use for take out. Never go back again! I have no idea why they are so busy.

We recently moved to Abbotsford Anna were told to try this place by people who have been coming here a long time. The service was excellent, the menu had a great selection, and if you're here before 5:30pm, you can get a great deal on dinner with a salad, and an inexpensive adult beverage. I had the mushroom ravioli and... More

We have been to Pallioti's many times and always come away happy. They have a good selection and portions are generous. The restaurant can be loud when busy, and the building is a little cool when it opens for the day, but the food and the service make up for it! This is the place in town that we buy... More

I would say that this place is worth it if you're in Abbotsford, but I can't say that I'd travel to Abbotsford for it. I was in a large group for dinner, and I found that most of our pastas - though tasty - didn't have much else in them. For instance mushrooms were sliced paper thin, so there perhaps... More

Good food but inconsistent service. Lots of garlic served up in their overly creamy sauces. Every waitresses first job must be here. Fresh new faces who don't have a clue on how to serve and never stay long before another new face appears. Imagine having a bartender that doesn't know how to mix a gin and tonic. Apparently a gin...
