In our top 5 for pizza

This is in our top 5 for pizza. We carry out from here at least once a month. We have been going here my entire life - a neighborhood favorite. We always get pizza but the other food is good too. They have several kinds of crusts and their sauce is the best - sweet and zesty at the same... read more

We walked in and were told there was a 30 min wait. We grabbed a spot at the bar and patiently waited. After more than 30 mins we were told the wait was 1 hour and we saw half the restaurant was empty. We ended up eating at the bar but thought the front desk terribly mismanaged our experience. The...

I've been here several times for lunch and dinner, and ordered pizza from here several times too. The food is always good, if a tad bit pricy(not compared to downtown prices, but still). Make a reservation, especially on weekends! Their sauce is on the sweet side, which I like, but it may not be for everyone...if sweet pizza sauce isn't... More

Lunch here a couple of years ago had me dreading another visit. That time, the food was just ok but the service was bad. We were mostly ignored and rushed from an empty dining room. But one of my friends likes Palermo's so we went again for lunch. I was the first to arrive, seated in the middle of the... More

They rush you out by taking your food before you're done with it. I have been here on three different occasions over the past seven years and everytime i go i understand why i never want... More

Their pizzas are very good. Other items are ok. Had the garlic lemon shrimp. It was ok. Family had angel hair with grilled shrimp and fried chicken. They said it was good. There are many items on the menu. Some of them not offered anymore. When you have too many items, it's hard to perfect them all. Pizza however stays... More
