Palatino Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Once past the office style reception, I loved it. Food is Italian but original - Sicilian and puglian influences. Giuseppe, the head waiter, knows his stuff and looks after you - some of the younger staff were still trying to learn what the menu was. But food is spot on and very reasonable indeed."
"Lovely space, comfortable banquettes and friendly service in support of very good food. A neighborhood ambience topped it off. We'll be back for sure"
"The restaurant is a good airy space, with a mix of tables, booths and one long sharing table. Booths are best. The food is authentically Roman: meat eaters should go for the bombolotti ragu and saltimbocca, though the chicken and pancetta meatballs with the smoothest-ever polenta are hard to turn down. Vegetarians have good choices too. You have to order the fried sage leaves. Everybody does."
