Time Out says

Fulfilling all romantic expectations on film-set cute Cornelia Street is Palma, which evokes the Italian countryside with its antique wooden tables, rickity paper light fixtures and simple, whitewashed walls. A salad of olive-oil-drizzled tomatoes and lobster is voluptuously sweet; perfectly browned artichoke hearts are addictive. Try the homemade spinach-and-ricotta stuffed agnolotti for an intoxicating blend of cream and piquancy or the rich, meaty swordfish punctuated by capers and olives. Don’t burn your tongue on the steaming espresso (which is playfully accompanied by a wand of rock candy) and you might agree: This sort of dining makes its own magic to rival the movies.

What a great spot. Celebrating a girlfriends birthday us 7 girls headed over to Palma & found it nestled on Cornelia St. We loved what we first saw in side. Cute cozy tables, vases upon vases of fresh white & pink roses of all variations. Candlelight everywhere. Being that we were special guests of the owner we were taken to the outside (covered) patio & when we entered it simply took our breathe away. It was covered with glass panels that kept you away from cold & rain, yet you still felt you were outside under the starry nite. Strings of soft white lites from one side of the dining room to the another. Walls had rustic wooden shelves with cute little vases with roses. Our table situated in the corner by concretar stair case was the coziness corner & we could see why the owner had it as the best in the house. Each step had vases w/roses, soft candle lites & a great view of the amazing patio. We all felt as if we'd al gone on vacation to some small rustic town in Italy. Front & center of the patio....a collection is crates, vases, barrels filled again with roses of every type & pink/white colors. The scent of the rose filled room was delicious & not overpowering that it would disturb your dining experience. We decided that we'd order a few dishes & all share that way we could savor as many dishes as possible. The cauliflowers rice was to die for. The fish was soft & full of flavor. After fighting over the meatballs we ordered another....which was fought over as well. The salad was insanely good. You can't go wrong with any dish on the menu. Thanks to our amazing waiter who helped us decided on what to pick. His selections didn't disappoint. The service was phenomenal. Attentive, quick yet not overwhelming or overcrowding. The tables were all full & it was obvious everyone was enjoying their dining experience as we were. It's easy to see why reservations are needed. Especially if you want to dine in the patio. We know we all be back again...for another girls nite, date nite or just because you want a little get away nite.

Attended a friend's baby shower in the second floor private room. The space was perfect. Had about 22 girls and it was a great intimate setting. Beautiful flowers and setup, fantastic detailed service. The food was also good.
