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.

    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.

    Our waiter ruined the experience. One of the salads ordered was same as on entree but he didn’t tell us. So it was a duplicate. He was very unpleasant and ruined our lunch. We asked to talk to the manager who had already left. We expressed our dissatisfaction with the hostess, who didn’t explain the issue. Nor did she offer a dessert. I have eaten at the restaurant before and loved it. After this experience, I will not return nor recommend it.

    Small upscale restaurant with pretty good food. However, my husband and I were VERY disappointed with how stuck up and unfriendly the staff was. It felt uncomfortable and awkward. For an expensive restaurant, I was expecting great service. I mean the staff was not rude or anything, they just need to be more personable. We didn’t feel welcome. We will not return to this place.

    The service and food were good. We had a party of 9 and were seated in a separate room which we enjoyed. One of our diners had to wait on his plate so he was the last to finish. One server tried to take his plate before he was finished. We were told ahead of time that our table would only have one check that would not be divided at all. We were shocked when all we got was a hand written note of the total food and total tip. Nothing was itemized. We had to figure out our own tickets and settle up ourselves. It was very annoying and disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber.

    Planning this dinning experience for 2 years to enjoy the incredible food & taste the 5⭐️ Michelin rating the chef has received. Mark, our server, was spot on. CAROL was even better! Sadly, due to personal, private matters, I was unable to enjoy the delicacies. The duck was tough. The carrot polenta dessert mediocre. The antipasto ravioli with fiddlehead ferns was wonderful even though it was devoured a day later. The menu is specific and insightful in sparking the imagination as to what will be served. I need to return to fully enjoy another meal 🥘- getting the duck.

    Looking for someplace special, here you will find that atmosphere. Never felt rushed. Expertly prepared food, the presentation and the flavors are amazing. Each course can be paired with a selected wine, or choose a flight or a single glass.
