The wine and pizza pairing was the most fun I've had in a long time. It was also the most full I've been. Trust me, if you come to a pairing night, and you absolutely should, don't plan any physical activities after. You will be full. The pizza was some of the best I've ever had and I loved watching...

Whether you're coming to Milwaukee on vacation and want to try some of the great "foodie" scene here, or you live here and just want a great night out, you must try the wine/beer pairings with the wood-fired pizza. The Palermo's staff is so friendly and hospitable, and now that I've had this wood-fired pizza, no other pizza comes close.... More

I highly recommend the pizza and wine pairings put on by Palermos!! The evening started with a cash bar and conversation with Italian music playing in the background that really set the tone for the evening. A small tour of the factory was given. The tour guide, Alecia, was extremely knowledgeable and made the group feel like family! The group... More

It was so interesting to learn about the culture while also seeing how the pizza is made in the assembly lines. The tour is quick and fun, where you really get to see what goes on behind the production of pizza. I also learned a lot about the philanthropic work that Palermo's does. At the end, Palermo's lets you sample... More

This tour was something quick and easy for something to do with young children. The production line was down the day I went. The actual tour was only about 10 to 15 minutes. The pizza at the end was good & they also gave the kids dough to take home.

Excellent! We felt like family from beginning to end. The guides were very knowledgeable and answered all of the many questions. They were amazed at all of the items that need to be considered in an operation of this scale. The pizza was delicious!

Last month, in conjunction with a pizza factory tour at Palermo’s, we hosted 19 people (most of them 6-year-old kids) at Palermo’s Pizzeria 3301 for our daughter’s 6th birthday party. I have to say it was a great decision on our part to have the party there…it was really fun! We can’t really take all the credit though because the... More

My cousins were visiting from out of town, so we brought them to Palermo's for a Tour and Make Your Own Pizza. We had so much fun and enjoyed eating our own pizza creation. The staff was informative and entertaining. It was a truly unique experience!
