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!

Good, but...

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

We have ordered out here many, many times and dined in a few. We love the thin crust pizza and pasta. 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
