“Tasty pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

I cannot comment on the pizzas here but our two pasta dishes were fresh and very tasty indeed. We hadn't planned to eat at Palazzo but a heavy downpour saw us asking if there was an available table. We were shown to a small but charming upstairs room with a view onto the cathedral and square. My husband's carbonara dish was one of the best he'd ever tasted while my salmon pasta was equally delicious. Having seen some desserts being taken to another table, we ordered the special coffee mix with petits fours and ice cream as well - lovely! I thought the staff were attentive and very pleasant. No complaints about the standard of food or service at all!

“Expensive tasteless food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

In short, avoid this restaurant if you enjoy a good meal. We ordered 4 different pizza's, none of them had a tiny bit of taste and some were even missing some of the enlisted ingredients (like mushrooms and artichokes). Beverages are ridiculously overpriced. Staff was quick to take and serve orders, but managed to ignore us after that (until the time came to ask if we wanted desserts).

The only (yes, 1 single) toilet is located on the second floor of the (beautiful) building.

It's not all bad I guess: you get a nice view of the cathedral and the hôtel de ville.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We came across this place after visiting the cathedral and needed somewhere to eat. Given to location and view and taking previous experience into account I expected this place to be expensive and not terribly good. Actually a real surprise - food was fresh and well cooked, service brisk and efficient and at less than 100 Euros for 4 people including wine really good value. Would recommend.

“Good meal in front of a wonderful cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

I was with my girlfriend in this restaurant and I can say this one is delicious. I didn't expect the quantity of each meal. When you go eating in a normal restaurant they give you a simple dish. But comparating this last one to this restaurant, it's totally the oppposite. I took a mixture of salat, hot goat cheese, Then, a pizza. I was full. Thank you for your welcoming and for your friendship.
We will go back again to taste your others dishes!

“An exceptional meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013 via mobile

Our return trip to Palazzo 1837 Ristorante was just as enjoyable as our first trip. Our friends joined us in an exceptional meal starting with the mixed greens salad with nuts and raspberry dressing. The main course of scallops and shrimp was presented in an extraordinary manner, along with the other chicken and salmon dishes which tasted as great as they looked. The wine served was also a nice accompany to the meals. We were too full for the deserts, but those in nearby tables who were having deserts could be heard saying how good they were.
