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

The food is always amazing. The servers are attentive and knowledgable of all the menu items. The Bartenders are excellent, and the drinks are made perfectly. Additionally, the owner is always there, attentive to her customers, always greets you, it's like being with family. I highly recommend it.

The food is very good here. Better than your neighborhood Italian. Service is great. The restaurant is dark but has a private cozy feel to it. I would definitely come again.

Very average food. Pasta is always very watery. Tomato sauce is thin and white sauce needs a lot of work. Twice ordered, twice sauce was broken/separated. Owner is usually walks around, and will ask , how is everything. But, will never acknowledge that is anything wrong . Will argue with customer, like you don't know what you are talking about....

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

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
