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.

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.

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!
