Palio was born in September of 1991, bringing a country-style, Italian restaurant featuring authentic Tuscan dishes to downtown Ann Arbor. Named for the famous horse race that runs yearly through Siena, Italy, a record is even kept of the race’s winners on a mural along the back dining room wall.
During summer, Palio boasts Ann Arbor’s largest and most popular outdoor gathering spot on its rooftop patio – Palio Del Sole. With a panoramic view of Ann Arbor’s energetic downtown nightlife and legendary Sangria by the pitcher, Palio Del Sole is the place to be on a warm summer’s eve. Fully equipped with its own cucina, Palio Del Sole offers a unique menu that is completely different from Palio menu downstairs.
