    First timer definitely not a last timer… we were beyond satisfied by this place. I ordered the cheese wheel pasta w/ black truffle, pricey but soooo worth it if you love truffle like I do. The fresh- house made pasta was tender and nicely limp, the creamy Parmesan was smooth like velvet and then there was THE TRUFFLE… layers of it shaved before my eyes… MAG-NI-FI-CENT! I’m a carnivore and didn’t miss the meat, this dish was everything. Hubby got some sort of seafood pasta, the name escapes me but, he loved it ) The service was good too, everyone was very attentive, keeping our water glasses filled & ensuring we didn’t need anything. We’ll definitely be back here… soon.

    We another lovely Friday evening date-nite at Palinuro. We love the food here and I love that it's authentic Italian. The menu items do change from time to time but there are always favories. Currently, they are doing the black-truffle pasta which is a treat.

    Roberto and team did an outstanding job tonight, and treated us very well! It was like we knew him already, and he knew us which made for a great wine choice and food pairings. Hats off the cook(s) because the food was delicious. It was like being back in Italy with all of the flavors and portions. I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience, so I will always come back even just for the wine and appetizers.

    I'm giving three stars for our waiter Roberto. He was attentive and professional. We made a reservation for a table for 4 and was on time, but they gave a table to a person in front of us. For the longest time he was the only one sitting on that table. I felt that they gave our table away and made us wait. Then towards the end of dinner the person that is clearing our table spilled a full glass of water on to my daughter's lap. Accidents happen but we had to leave to go home so she can change for the movie after dinner. I guess it was just not our night.

    My wife and I had a reservation for 8:30pm. We arrived at 8:25pm and were asked to give them a moment to get a table. So we sat on the bench at the front of the restaurant. Then the greeter was rude when asking us to move to the bar to wait. It was so loud my wife and I basically had to yell to have a conversation with each other. We finally got a table at 9:10pm ordered our food and got it after 9:45pm. The lasagna was such a small portion especially for the price, and tasted store bought. The only good thing was our waiter, he was nice and attentive. Other than that, not too sure how this place has so many good reviews, but that was definitely our first and last time there. I’d like to upload a picture of the food we received but the website isn’t letting me. We tried this place based on the reviews, and left disappointed.

    Food was great as always but we tend to feel a little rushed since they would not take our order until we had all selections made (as opposed to ordering appetizers then deciding what next) then all of our food didn’t come out at the same time. We were mostly finished with our meal when they brought out the side dishes. We will definitely be back but maybe during a less busy time??

    Celebrated my birthday with my sisters and the food was outstanding! Something as simple as lasagne and bolognese were both very flavorful with homemade noodles. Dessert was delicious with the Nutella cheesecake atop a crushed chocolate cookie crust.
