You still cannot beat the birthday special, 50% off food (for two people) and a free cannoli (to take home when too full). We sat on the upstairs patio, starting with the peach sangria, followed by the mushroom, arugula, pesto crostini, followed by the veal...More

The thin crust pizzas are great and overflowing with toppings. Lots of food! The service was friendly, but a little slow. Thet were very busy. Seek out the outdoor rooftop patio for a relaxing dining experience.

The restaurant is named after the Palio horse race held twice annually in the town of Siena in Tuscany. Bareback riders, each representing one of the many districts in the town, circle the village square three times in a frantic race without rules. The restaurant...More

Description
Previous Next Authentic Tuscan Dishes Born in September of 1991, Palio is a country-style, Italian restaurant featuring authentic Tuscan dishes. Named for the famous horse race that runs yearly through Siena, Italy, a record is even kept of the race's winners on a mural along the back dining room wall. During summer, Palio boasts Ann Arbor's largest and most popular outdoor gathering spot on its rooftop patio - Palio Del Sole. Offering the best view of Ann Arbor's energetic downtown nightlife, Palio Del Sole is fully equipped with its own cucina and offers a unique menu that is completely different from Palio downstairs. There simply is no better Al Fresco dining experience on a warm summer evening in Ann Arbor.
