My wife and I had Valentines day dinner there earlier this month. It was our first time and we were excited to check off another Bardstown Rd. restaurant off of our "list". The dining room is small and the tables are packed close together but we never really felt cramped. We ordered a bottle of wine (moderately priced at $30)... More

First trip to Palermo and was not disappointed. The steak was excellent, the service was attentive and the overall price is attractive. Certainly nothing super-fancy, but great value for the quality. The only drawback is the confusing issue about side items. The menu is not clear on this, and you pretty much have to ask if your dinner comes with... More

My friend and I had dinner here over the weekend. The food was excellent and the crepe with dulce de leche filling topped with dulce de leche ice cream was unbelievably good! Can't wait to go back!

If your craving something with alot of flavor then you wont be disappointed.Tried the fried calamari and rice with shrimp as an appetizer. Te calamari wasnt that good BUT the rice with the shrimp had this special sauce on it that was seasoned soooogood. We also got a mixed meat dish that had steak and sausage which is really enough...

We visited here on our trip to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby. We were seated right away and had access to the regular menu which wasn't the case in other restaurants we visited on this trip. I had the house made linguini which I enjoyed and my wife had the flank steak, both were very good. We found this restaurant... More

There are so many unique restaurants in Louisville that sometimes you don't get to one like Palermo just because it doesn't bubble up to the top but last night my friend suggested it and we went. My wife is not a big meat eater, so that's one reason it's been a while; however, they have lots of non-meat dishes so... More

What other reviewers call cozy strikes us as somewhat cramped. With meat dishes served on little grills, the 2-top tables are hard to manage, space-wise. The environment is busy but pleasant. With respect to food and drink, at our most recent visit, two pieces of lomo (steak) ordered to the same degree of doneness (medium) arrived at the table together... More
