Historians agree that Western Civilization reached its apex in Italy—either during the Renaissance or with the creation of the pizza. Feast on Italian genius with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and other Italian favorites at Palio’s Pizza Cafe at its two locations in Mansfield and Cityview.
The artisans of circular delight at Palio’s use fresh ingredients and minor sorcery to produce a menu of creative, gourmet pizzas. The friendly pizza-builders slather a base of tangy, fresh sauce on made-fresh-daily dough before blanketing it in a snowfall of 100-percent mozzarella cheese. Those with wheat allergies can opt for Palio's new gluten-free crust. The parlor features gourmet pre-concocted pies ($9.99 small, $12.99 medium, $15.99 large, $18.99 extra large) and build-your-own roundies, starting with a plain pie ($6.19 small, $8.49 medium, $10.49 large, $12.49 extra large) that can be enhanced with creative toppings ($0.80–$1.60 each). Toppings include familiar favorites such as sausage and pepperoni, in addition to gourmet options such as green olives, baby spinach, cashews, and sliced meatballs. Of the pre-conceived discs, white-collar criminals prefer Grace’s, a rich combination of alfredo sauce, roasted chicken, and fresh veggies and cheeses, whereas Restorationists prefer The King, deliciously weighed down with pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, and fresh veggies.
If food shaped like Frisbees doesn't appeal to you, Palio’s offers plenty of other homemade Italian treats, including farm-fresh salads and pastas loaded with homemade sauce. The cozy, casual setting at Palio's will make you feel at home, with a wallet- and gullet-friendly BYOB policy and a staff that can portray your parents upon request.
