Great food, so-so service

We went to Palermo for lunch today. Noted a problem with staffing and the layout right away--a hostess station (with no hostess) that can't be seen from 2/3 of the restaurant. We stood around for a few minutes before being noticed and seated; no big issue. My spouse ordered a pasta dish and I... read more

I went to Palermo on a friend's recommendation and was pleased. The owner was right there and unlike what I had read, the service was attentive and good. My wife and I shared chicken dishes, one with a picatta sauce and the other with a marinara sauce. Both were excellent. The bread was good, the wine by the glass was... More

If you want a night out with friends or family for a traditional Italian meal, but you are turned off by those restaurants who have overpriced their appetizers, separated the price of the salad from that of the entree, over-priced their wine and even charge you for bread, then make sure you go to Palermo. Great traditional Italian meals that... More

Experienced new shrimp dish. Chicken parm was great. Missed the orange cube dessert, but other desserts tasty.

The food is real Italian and tasty. The service was great, timely and attentive. Portions were generous and modestly priced.

Have made two trips here and both were miserable. Both were with a group of ladies for dinner. Trip one was with about 9 women. We were pretty much ignored. My food was mediocre at best. Some kind of uninspired pasta. Couldn't get a water glass refill so went to the bathroom and filled it up at the tap. Imagine... More

my wife and I ate there Saturday night. We came to the restaurant on a whim to try somewhere new. We hit it right. The food was fantastic. It was real authentic Italian food. The restaurant was very crowded and it stayed that way the whole time we were there. I would highly recommend you make reservations to eat there.... More

We went to Palermo Italian Restaurant, as a second thought. What a wonderful, serendipitous find! The night was cold outside but the hostesses, bar tenders and the wait staff were warm and welcoming. We started with drinks @ the bar and then transitioned to our table. We were close to the kitchen but that only enhanced the experience, as we... More

My wife and I love this restaurant, great Italian food and fabulicious garlic rolls. You get a lot of food for the price and on Monday and Wednesday, pasta and chicken night specials are great. Great hostess named Marina, owner, who takes pride in making you Happy and Full. Lunch portions are also very large and everything we ever had... More
