Everybody loves a place that nobody can get into except for them. And since Palizzi doesn’t seem to be issuing new memberships anytime soon, you either hopefully already have the golden ticket or have a friend who you can barter with for a spot at their table. If you do manage to get in the door, the Italian food you’ll get here is some of the best in the city.
The stromboli isn’t just a stromboli - it has a crispy and buttery crust that we’ve been thinking about ever since we walked out the glowing red front door. And if you leave without trying the grilled octopus, you’re doing yourself a disservice. The food, plus the experience of having dinner in what used to be a club for mob bosses, is well worth whatever you did to get here. Or you can try your luck on Craigslist. Your call.
