We stopped here for dinner while out showing family around town. Staff was super friendly, restaurant was clean, service was good. Food was all wonderful. We ordered a pizza, a calzone, and two pasta dishes. It came out freshly prepared. Definitely will stop again if...ever in Melissa!!More

Forget the big national chains with their plastic pizza, fresh ingredients abound on Palio's pizza. The Mediterranean with feta cheese, artichokes, roma tomatoes is a favorite, just fresh, fresh, fresh. Service is polite and fast. The only current drawback is the highway construction in front...of the place and confusing barrels and lanes, you can easily pass it and have to go a quarter mile to turn around and try it again, but hopefully that will be gone someday.More

Palio's struggles w/an identity. Is it a restaurant or Pizzaria? The Pizza is tasty but not reminiscent of true Italian style Pizza. The sauce lacked depth/richness of flavor & the crust(though a good consistency) didn't add anything to the Pizza. Overpriced for quality as I...expected better.More

we enjoy the takeout aspect of Palios and often get the hot italian sub. They are a little skimpy on the meat and toppings but it is still a good sandwich. Dine in experience leaves a lot to be dsired but still slightly better than...the Pizza Hut here.More

Meatball pizza is my favorite so far, but still several things on the menu is like you try. Not only do they have pizza, but salads, pasta, and sandwiches. The price is very reasonable, and even though you order at the counter, they are still...service- oriented and will take care of you. Delivery is also available.More

Absolutely loved both pizzas we tried here (Hawaiian and Frank's Buffalo Chicken)! Definitely recommend it for anyone who likes Italian food in perfect portions. The small pizza was just right for one person, not too small and not too large. Establishment is clean and well-decorated....I like the feel. It's a great place especially since Melissa typically doesn't offer a ton of food options that feel unique :)More

We Shared an Xtra large spicy Italian pizza with a friend! It was very tasty. Service was good, pizza arrived very hot!!! Will definitely go back again. Maybe next time a salad and some pasta!

Great thin crust pizza with many choices of toppings. The greek salad was fabulous. I love the pizza and salad but i wonder if their location will be a detriment as it is hidden from most people as they drive by.More
