Palio debuted a few months ago in Owings Mills, and along with it came another happy hour option. From 3 to 7 p.m. on weekdays, the bar doles out a handful of martinis and artisan cocktails for less than $5 apiece, as well as draft wine, draft beer, and sangria for half off. Meanwhile, the kitchen dishes out eats for $9 to $11, like margherita pizzas and ravioli fritti.
Of course, if you decide to sit down for a full dinner, the kitchen rolls out a much larger menu. Start with a cheese and salumi board or a hot appetizer such as the fried calamari with saffron aioli. Then dig into a plate of fresh pasta, like the popular fettuccine Alfredo da Tavola. This pasta comes with a production. Your server will actually bring out an enormous wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese from the kitchen and toss your fresh pasta inside of it with hot cream, then it's transferred directly to your plate. The dish is a must-try for any cheese-lovers out there.
