We had a group of 5 and had a great time. It starts out with a video of the family history and a short factory tour. Then we got to make our own pizzas cooked to perfection in a wood fired oven. The tour guides and staff were great and the pizza was awesome! The pizza and beer/wine pairings sound... More

What a great night I had with my friends! The pizza was amazing and I found some new wine that I love. The girl who gave the tour made it very interesting and had a great sense of humor. What is better than having a night out with friends, listening to music, trying new delicious pizzas and wine? I say... More

This was fantastic! Definitely would do it again! The food was awesome and the wine was fantastic, I definitely enjoyed that we got to sample in large quantities (i.e. full glass of wine and a whole pizza for our group for each pairing).

Hi Brooke S, Thank you for your review. Glad you and your friends had a nice time. I wonder what we could have done better to make your review a 5 star experience instead of 4 stars? Hope to see you again in the future! More

This was not only interesting to hear the history about Palermo's but watch how they make their frozen pizzas. Then to make it even better, they give you a decent slice and pop to enjoy at the end of the tour. I am now a fan of their frozen pizza and buy over the other frozen kinds when I need... More

This was our second trip to Palermo's for the pizza and wine pairing. The food and wine were incredible. The staff was very friendly and made for a great evening. I would recommend doing a pairing if you have the chance.

Our hosts were wonderful! The cute Italian atmosphere of the front entrance to the factory is very nice. I feel it is great to go upstairs and look down over the factory production lines because you can see everything from there. Tons of mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage balls and sauce were easily viewed as the employees worked at a continuous pace.... More

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
