Palladio Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Four-course dinners with wine pairings, especially apt given the restaurant's vineyard residence, will seduce you, while the setting transports you to the northern Italian countryside. Start with Black Angus beef carpaccio; continue with such dishes as gnocchi alla Romana, progress to petto di pollo alla Piastra (pan-seared chicken breast with estate grown beans, pine nut skordalia and herbed chicken demi-glace) or the fish of the day with navy bean and lardo purée, chanterelles, cherry tomatoes, zucchini and persillade. Finish with mascarpone cheesecake with fresh raspberries and orange purée. And if these prescribed, artful dishes don’t sound special enough, there are periodic events such as an annual truffle feast.
