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

My wife loves the handful of pasta with shrimp entrees.They offer gluten free pasta which is a life saver. Also good standard pasta with meat sauce and some pasta with chicken which is very good. Take out service is... More

My co-workers and I love their pizza and usually our first choice when we order out. However, we decided to add spinach to our vegetarian pizza on our last order and YUCK. They must have used defrosted squeezed out spinach cause it was horrible. This gross saggy spinach ruined the entire extra large pizza. We thought they would use fresh... More

This is our all time favorite pizza, especially the thin & crispy. The toppings are generous especially the sausage. This is also a great pizza as cheese only.

The Pizza Here is Amazing and a once a week treat! But you have to like Sweet Sauce! Coupons can always be found online or in your mail. Service is always good. They offer Valet Parking, and I believe that is free of charge. They also do weddings, showers, and special events. You should visit a Palermo's today! Mancha!

I have had some of the Italian dishes and they are good, but the pizza is what you go to Palermo's for. The sauce is just the right amount and is just right and there is no scrimping on the toppings. The beef sandwiches and the Italian sausage is worth going out of the way for. have also had a... More

Delicious homemade Italian specialties including cheese ravioli, fettuccine Alfredo! Best Sicilian, sweet red sauce on the south side of Chicagoland. I'm from Niles, Ohio where Sicilian food is king and Palermo's is authentic, old world food in an updated restaurant with great ambience! Just like is served in my hometown.

Had the bow tie pasta with meat sauce and a salad. The salad was kind of puny and basically lettuce with not much else. The sauce had a good flavor, but seemed a bit sweet. Service was excellent.
