The Italian-inspired Palo restaurant aboard each Disney ship, named after the colorful poles that line the canals of Venice, offers a superlative dining experience reserved exclusively for adults. When you dine here, you’re invited to indulge in a menu of delectable modern Italian cuisine, coupled with a sophisticated atmosphere and superior service.

Of course the dining experience doesn’t end with the fine cuisine. Palo is also known for a robust menu of adult beverages, including inventive cocktails and classic reserve wines. The restaurant’s wine list, with 99 percent Italian wines, includes about 90 labels from all regions of Italy, including a sparkling Prosecco, a lush red Barolo made just for Palo, and some of the best Super Tuscans. 

One of my favorite beverages at Palo, especially paired with brunch, is the restaurant’s signature Balsamic Grande cocktail. This refreshing drink features vodka, a splash of 5-year-old balsamic vinegar and fresh muddled strawberries. It’s the perfect drink to impress your friends with during a summer gathering. Check out this video to see how you can make it at home.


  • Yum! Sounds perfect for summer & I like the simplicity of the balsamic decoration. Will definitely be making a version on IG
