Taverna & Trattoria Palio

The best Italian in Northern Germany

Do you love Italy, the hospitality and the lifestyle? Visit one of the best Italian restaurants in the North, the Palio Taverna & Trattoria - a piece of Italy in Lower Saxony. In the Tuscan, rustic ambience, you will enjoy the simple, hearty, but ingeniously diverse cuisine of the Italian housewife ‘Cucina casalinga’ - in the summer you can experience the lightness of dining beneath the chestnuts tree.


To the 20th anniversary of the Taverna & Trattoria Palio we present you a new counter concept. From 01.03.2018 there will be regional specialties from italian regions like Liguria, Sicily and the Tuscany. Five times a year there will be an other menu consistent with the actual region. The start of our tour through Italy was on 09.03.2018 with guest chef Pietro Volontè from Villa Belrose with the region Lombardy. Chef de cuisine Holger Lutz and restaurant manager Kilian Skalet will be your hosts. At the start of every region there will be a special cook from the region, to present you their favourite menus. The highlight in this year was the Palio Sommerfest on 01.09.2018.
