Went to a class reunion here. Great service, although folks had to park on the street if they didn't want valet. Calamari was good if a bit overcooked & so was the eggplant appetizer. Pizza was thick & greasy.

Friends from high school that like to meet for lunch on Saturdays.We like places with round tables. Palermo's on 95th in Oak Lawn fits the bill plus their food is always very good. Their service is great.

This restaurant is very nice and inviting. We all had great pastas. Soup or salad before the meal was included. Pretty average pricing. Great stop if you want good food in a quieter area.

You don't have to go downtown or to the north side of Chicago to get good pizza. Why deal with that hassle. No where to park, and difficult to get to. Just go to Oak Lawn and Palermo's on 95th Street. This pizza is the...More

I don't think it is. The Palermo restaurants in the area all have different recipes. Not sure the grocery store pizzas are even from any of them. 95th street is by far the best.

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.
Sherman Kaplen of WBBM radio says, "Palermo's 95th is a true diamond among the southwest side Italian restaurants!" The grilled shrimp and calamari and the 8-finger cavetelli are outstanding. Plus check out their extensive wine and martini list. Featured on WTTW Check Please!
