Great Italian Food

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

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 had soup and a sandwich--the food... 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

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

We tried this restaurant after passing by it many times. The atmosphere is welcoming and has an definite Italian vibe. I had a veal entree which was very tender and fresh. My husband had the gnocchi with cream sauce and it was a large portion and he commented that the flavors were perfect. We were too full for any dessert... More

Palermo is one of the few restaurants in the Richmond area that has authentic Italian food. Their pasta is homemade, as are their delicious garlic rolls. The veal parm is delicious "real veal" and their lasagna is meaty, cheesey, all around yummy. We always enjoy our meal when we eat at Palermo.

Went for a business lunch just after opening. Small group, staff was welcoming and accommodating. We're able to get a quiet table to talk. Food was very good and with good sized portions for lunch. Will return for dinner service with family.
