For outstanding Italian cuisine, look no further than Palermo's 95th. This family run, award winning restaurant specializes in authentic veal, steak, pasta, and fresh seafood creations for lunch and dinner. Established in 1961 by Ben and Nina Calderone, the family tradition still continues thru their sons, Anthony and William. Sherman Kaplen of WBBM radio says, "Palermo's 95th is a true diamond among the southwest side Italian restaurants!" The grilled shrimp and calamari and the 8-finger cavetelli are outstanding. Plus check out their extensive wine and martini list. Featured on WTTW Check Please!

Delcious pizza, nice ambiance!

This place has been around for years. I used to live in the city of Chicago (about 25 years ago) and hadn't been in a long time so was a "blast from past" to visit. The ambiance is quaint and pretty grape leaf design on walls. Tables are packed together tho and very loud. I don't know what it was... read more

We come here on Thursday evenings because they always have Osso Bucco on the menu. The meal here is better than the I had in For Myers Florida and is somewhat less expensive.

I love Palermo's food I have no complaints there! The service of waiters is consistent as well. The only problem is everytime I went whether I'm by myself or with a group of friends or family they ALWAYS sit me in the corner or behind a wall. It doesn't matter who the hostess is it happens EVERY TIME! This may... More

A local favorite, with top ranked pizza and southern Italian fare. They've gone cheap on the wait staff (not enough) so while the waiters/resses work hard, you can't expect very good service.

A catering place to order and carry out, or enjoy wonderful Italian food inside. We did the dining where there was a great selection of "home made" soups, bread, pizza, and various dishes. One should expect to wait for a half hour before the food is brought to you. A great choice of wines, beers and soft drinks can be... More
