If Northern Italian cuisine, excellent wines and an adult-only restaurant is what you’re after, this is your restaurant while you’re on the Fantasy! Located near Remy, Palo’s gourmet food is a match for its French counterpart. received its moniker from the colorful poles that stand along the canals in Venice’s waterway, and the elegant restaurant stands true to Italian style with superb meals and service. The dress code isn’t as strict as at Remy but no jeans are allowed for dinner, brunch or High Tea.

The Food

With dishes inspired by northern Italy, the dining experience starts with antipasti selections, and then a variety of fresh pastas, from lobster pappardelle to wild mushroom risotto.

Desserts range from the classical tiramisù to Palo’s decadent signature chocolate soufflé with vanilla bean, panna cotta and chocolate sauce.


On sea days try the adult-only brunch buffet with mimosas and champagne, fresh pastries and breads,custom-made entrées and signature pizza.
