The name Pallino represents many things we love: passion, play, a sense of family, and relaxation. If you’ve ever played bocce, you know the “pallino” is the small clay object ball or target used in this great game that is the heart of so many family and social gatherings. Did you also know the word “pallino” is also meant as a compliment, as a way to tell someone you really think they’re “on the ball” and that you appreciate them?
Our Pallino restaurants are gathering places for great people, where you, your friends, and family can meet for a delicious meal. Our food is authentic and delicious, and our service fast. When you dine in, just order at the counter at your leisure and we’ll take care of the rest. To-go orders can be placed in our restaurant, online, or by phone.
In 1999, Pallino was founded by retail pioneer and former Starbucks executive, Harry “Arrigo” Roberts, right here in the Puget Sound area. Harry’s vision was to combine the warmth and traditions of his Italian heritage in an environment that was affordable and approachable for all. Since the beginning, our focus has been on providing you and your family with an authentic, delicious, and comfortable dining experience.
Fresh, local, and “farm to table” are the latest buzz words in the restaurant industry, but to Pallino it is business as usual. We’ve always sourced the best ingredients available to us and will never make a recipe selection based on cost. We love to be local and have been working with many of the same local providers for the past 15 years. We believe in partnerships. We share a commitment with our suppliers and our communities to working together to provide the best experience possible for all our guests.
Thank you for being part of our story. We are proud to be part of this community and look forward to serving you, your friends, and your family well into the future.
