We've visited the restaurant about six times in the past year and have always enjoyed tasty meals and wonderful service. Most recently we had braised beef ravioli and the Gambari parmesan. Excellent. The rolls buttered and seasoned and served hot are a good beginning to the meal. Salads are always fresh and we like their house creamy garlic dressing.

Visited Palermo's last week with friends for dinner. Very busy and noisy but not overly so. Traditional appetizer of bruschetta was quite good and plenty for all four of us. Entrees ranged from shrimp fra Diablo to lasagna to veal. All were excellent and more than filling. Entrees come with a house salad so you really do not need an... More

The gnocchi dishes are delicious and my go to meals. The Stromboli is HUGE and enough for two people. The bread - to die for. Never had a bad meal

An uncaring waitress who when her young assistant tipped the plate and spilled hot gravy onto to one of our guests and myself finally came over after I had to get up and call her over. Not that we would have accepted but she never offered a complimentary coke, or dessert or offered to pay for his dry cleaning. As... More

Everything I order here is good. Last night I had a Polo Francesse. It was very tender with a wonderful sauce. I dropped the bread into it "by accident" so soak up some of the sauce. So delicious. There was a large portion, enough for me to take home. It was served with a large green salad. The perfect Italian... More

I've heard folks rave about Palermo, but for me, it didn't live up to the hype. I found the pasta I ordered to be watery and the tomato sauce was subpar - it didn't really live up to the $15 price tag. The pizza was nice, but to me, nothing special. Like other reviewers noted, it is an American Italian... More

You know the deal...Saturday around 2:00pm, been shopping, doing errands, your are HOT, sweaty, kinda tired and don't feel like going home and cooking but you want a well prepared meal that doesn't bust open your wallet, you don't want to fight more traffic, crowds, or looking for parking. Sooo, I pressed the "Bluelink" on my car, gave the specifics... More

Went with three couples. Everyone had an outstanding meal. I had the Zia's Grilled Eggplant - delicious. Of course you can't pass up the best bread, reminds me of my Sicilian Grandmother's bread!

Let me start by saying that the food here is good. My wife, mother and I have eaten here three times and have come away satisfied each time. We particularly like the bread, which tastes hot and fresh. Even my brother who is far pickier than I am and regularly goes to expensive restaurants had no complaints when he ate... More

Went out Saturday night a little earlier and were surprised by the wait. Most people had reservations. We decided to wait because the atmosphere was nice and the smell from the kitchen was inticing! Glad we waited, as everyone had a nice meal. We will make a reservation next time.
