It was by default we ended up here. I was in Las Vegas for a high school reunion and one of my roomies had never been to LV before so we wanted to take her to a Vegas buffet. We made our way to Bellagio and wanted to hit their’s but the line was so incredibly long and we were starving so we found this little cafe inside the hotel and decided to just eat there.
Palio Cafe is not a full service restaurant, but rather, you order, take the food with you, find a table and enjoy.
Between the three of us we got an array of things to share starting with the Chef’s Salad which was decent enough greens and a bit of ham, boiled egg slices, and a little too many croutons for my liking — I hate croutons.
Antipasto Platter was quite nice actually with three types of meats, mozzarella, provolone, olives, grilled zucchini and some bread to go with it. We loved the prosciutto and the olives best.
They offered two types of Quiche — chorizo and a vegetarian. Both were nicely textured, although flavor-wise, I preferred the chorizo over the veggie one purely because it was a lot more flavorful.
Everyone enjoyed the Salmon Platter — thinly sliced smoked salmon on flatbread with a sprinkling of microplaned boiled egg and other acoutrements made this rather lovely actually.
If you are in a hurry and wanted something to eat then Palio Cafe is a good choice. The turnover is high so people are in and out rather quickly so if waiting at a buffet isn’t an option, then this place might just make do! My only complaint is that it is on the pricier side but then again, you’re at the Bellagio.
