Savor classic Northern Italian cooking with a modern twist at this chic adult-exclusive restaurant—it’s a feast for the senses!
Exquisite Italian Cuisine
Named after the signature long poles used by gondoliers in Venice, Palo serves Italian fare in an intimate setting.
Fine Italian cookery begins with artfully prepared antipasti, grilled portobello mushroom and polenta, and tuna carpaccio drizzled in lemon-oil dressing. Lose yourself to lightly-crusted calamari amid deep-fried cherry peppers or sip on a steaming stew of seafood favorites scented with basil and garlic. Continue with wild mushroom risotto and gnocchi drizzled with decadent gorgonzola sauce—or relish a plate of classic pasta such as penne arrabbiata.
For your main course, be transported to the heart of Italy as you pamper your palate with freshly prepared specialties that include baked chicken filled with ricotta, basil and peppers and grilled sea scallops with borlotti beans and pancetta—or entice your taste buds with the house favorite: a delectable oregano- and parmesan-crusted rack of lamb. At Palo, incomparable Italian dining and impeccable service sure to exceed your expectations are always on the menu.
For a sweet ending, discover a culinary confection of freshly made desserts including tiramisù, panna cotta or our house favorite: chocolate soufflé with vanilla bean and chocolate sauce.
