My wife had the Chicken Marsala, with the option of marsala sauce on the pasta. Magnifique! They did not cook down the marsala, which is what we like, a real flavor treat. I had the lasagna, which was good and plentiful. Our server, Katie, really made the evening special. She and the other help came by many times to make sure everything was good. We had an engaging conversation, for which we were in the mood. It being our 40th wedding anniversary, they gave us a free desert. For their home-made mud pie they were out of the chocolate mocha ice cream, so they gave us two scoops of butter pecan and one of vanilla. Delicious! We definitely recommend the restaurant, and ask for Katie!

We thankfully made a reservation over the phone for a Saturday night at 7pm. We were promptly seated over the people without. You can see the owners behind the counter in the kitchen carefully preparing the food. Everything was delicious! A hearty house salad, fabulous dressings, fantastic bread and the lasagna was just like my Grandmother use to make! mmmm.... The whole staff was happy, helpful and obviously working together. You will not be disappointed.

We have been going to Palumbo's since they opened, in fact, while I am writing, hubby is going to pick up our fri night pizza!! The owners are delightful and skilled restaurant owners, dishes are family recipes, food is delicious, and we've never been disappointed eating in or takeout pizza on Friday nights! The atmosphere is fairly causal and the wait staff is exceptional. It has always been a lovely experience and we eat their regularly even tho I am an Italian andan accomplished cook!

An "Old World" style restasurant similar to what you would find in Italy. The bread and clam chowder were the best we have ever had in a restaurant. The grilled Focaccia Sandwich blended flavors of prosciutto, pavalone, basil, and tomatoes on Rosmary Focaccia and the pepperoni pizza came on a crisp thin crust with a mild but excellent sauce and a lot of pepperoni. We added a bottle of wine from a local winery and could only say "molto buono!" And - the price was excellent.
