Slightly out of the way on I98 in a non-descript building, the Palace Restaurant is well worth the experience. Service is very good (Kristen) and food is excellent. Pasta perfectly cooked & sauce is delicious. Try to avoid eating the bread as you will fill...More

I don't know why this place isn't as busy as the chains as the food is always tasty and portion sizes great. Couldn't have been made more welcome by the friendly staff. Oh, and my boxed pizza tasted great for lunch today too.
