Italian
The elegant balance we value in wine, the quality of celebration inherent in its welcome, inspire palate harmonies that are Virginian in resources and Northern Italian in perspective, in country dining of vivacity and refinement. Here the estate of wine is inhabited at its most seamless and complete, sustained behind the scenes by the rarest collaboration of colleagues gifted in cuisine, viticulture, horticulture and service.

    Our 50th anniversary lunch was great. The food was WONDERFUL. service was good. Two gentlemen handled the entire restaurant efficiently. I was hoping for a few of the lovely grounds but there weren’t any. We did have a window but the other restaurant has the view. We had had wine and snacks in the Library on another visit and I thought that Palladio was connected and would have a similar view.

    We were aware of the restaurant’s presence for years, having visited the winery on a number of occasions. It was simply one of those “one day we need to… And “we decided this Father’s Day was that day. Now, we regret having waited this long. It helped that it was a picture perfect day… Cool breeze, a clear sky. The service was attentive without being annoying the wine, of course, was paired perfectly with each course. The food? Absolutely delicious. We would hardly recommend this to anyone.

    We ate at Palladio for Father’s Day. It was a beautiful setting and they were kind to open the French doors so a gentle breeze came through. The soft shells were delicious!

    The waiter wasn't very friendly. He said he couldn't recommend anything to us, which we found odd. The plates were small, so it seemed overpriced for what it was. The wine was also double the price compared to outside. Cheaper to buy wine outside and drink it there than inside. Will reconsider drinking inside in the future.

    From the Manzo Battuto to the Squid Ink Pasta and Shrimp it was executed with excellence. Finished with a glass of the Paxxito and a cheese plate for a perfect ending. Highly recommend.

    The reserve table was dark corner, so we asked other table, but the person said no, even the table was available(no one set that table until we left) Maybe we were Asian, that's why they reserved our table corner.

    This was my fourth visit to Palladio over the years. The wine service from Alessandro and the wine parings were excellent as always. However I missed the prix fix menu. Several of the dishes that we got this time I had ordered before on previous menus, and they just were slightly underwhelming (either over salted, under done pasta or just overly simple dishes that for that price needed something more) and there was very slim pickings for my vegetarian partner. Both of us were underwhelmed when we had been looking forward to an excellent meal.

    Beautiful location, nice atmosphere, excellent service. Our table was well attended even though the restaurant was full. Menu items are in Italian but well described in English. Portions are small for the money but nicely presented. The recommended wine pairings were excellent. I'm not from the NorVa/Beltway area so their prices may be normal for the region. Otherwise, it was a pleasant lunch to celebrate a family birthday.

    The service was unfriendly and slow. The main entree was cooked well, but unseasoned. The food was bland, except for the ravioli with goat cheese and artichoke.

    Spectacular food and impeccable service. I'm sad it took us so long to hear about this restaurant. I wish we had more time for a real Italian lunch, which should take a couple hours. I'm working on plans to stay at the inn so we can devote enough time to a complete dinner.

    Service was exceptional with one exception - one individual seemed very rushed and abrupt with no personality. He was also the only one that wore a mask - maybe he rushed from table to table to avoid germs. The food was outstanding - the servings were larger than we expected so we could not eat it all - but the duck was great the next morning! I gave it 4 stars overall - would have given it 4.5 if you could do that

    The food is exquisite, the service impeccible, and the ambience simpatico! I especially enjoy the complimentary prosecco apperitif and the fabulous focaccia. Palladio is a bit pricier now that their menu is a la carte vs. prix fixe, but where can you eat this well without traveling to Italia.

    I went to Palladio for lunch with my wife on Easter weekend. The quality of the food is not as good as before and prices are much steeper. My 36 dollar-duck was served with a mediocre polenta, for instance. My dessert, a so-called lemon cake, was also disappointing as it was just a small and dry piece of pie without even ice-cream on top. The wine glasses, at 14 dollars average, are also too expensive.
