We try to come here at least times a month. They have the best thin crust pizza! Great atmosphere, great service and low noise level. They have a ton of delicious entrées and desserts.

Our first Chicago meal was at this wonderful restaurant recommended by our hotel staff. My wife had the authentic pasta and I had the Chicken Marsala. With warm, fresh bread and graciously substituted veggies instead of potatoes for my low carb diet, the wait staff was aiming to please. We both found our meals to meet our fantasies of what...

This is my all time favorite pizza. They have sweet sauce that can't be beat. I am a sauce lover, it makes or breaks a pizza. Sausage, pepperoni, veggie, all terrific! Very thin crust is an option. Gluten free option. Many of the entrees I have tried are also delish--cappallini Christina, chicken Alfredo, grilled chicken salad...Dine in, carry out, delivery.... More

This is a laid back restaurant with great food and service. I love their pizza and you will too! I may look at the menu for a new option but the aroma of the pizza just locks me into ordering it. You won't be disappointed and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg for dinner.

My Chicago friends brought me here my first night in town. It was packed with many people. As we were being seated the food looked and smelled so good on the tables we passed by. We had thin crust pizza, eggplant Parmesan, Chianti, spaghetti, ravioli, and bread. Everything was scrumptious! It was a great introduction to the Chicago area.

The thin and crispy pizza is the best. Great wait staff and a wonderful atmosphere. We have been coming here for years and this place never dissapoints.

We had the best dinner of Chicken Vesuvio and Chicken Alfredo. The meat was tender, the sauce was perfect. The vesuvio had a great infusion of EVOO & White wine. Try it. The pizza's are so good too.

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.
