Palemos is a full service Italian restaurant. Great pizza as well as a complete mouth watering menu to choose from. They have been around for many years. It serves as a testament of the quality they have to offer.

Just west of Cicero Ave. on 95th St., there is plenty of parking behind the restaurant. This is an Italian restaurant and you feel the ambiance when you walk in. As we walked past other tables to be seated, there were some great looking dishes on the plates. Our server, Esther, was very personable and efficient. We ordered a light... More

We visited here on a Thursday, when they have their Osso Buco special for only $22.00. A huge portion that was cooked perfectly and served over their homemade pasta.

My wife, and I , along with my eldest daughter went for dinner. My daughter, like many of her generation tends to eat vegetarian items. We all were able to find something on the menu that was delicious.

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!
