“Soggy, mushy tiramisu served in a sundae cup”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The tiramisu is soggy and tasteless. There was hardly any mascarpone cheese and liquor. It was just several lady fingers soaked in coffee with whipped cream. Tiramisu should be served as a square slice and you should able to see the different layers of cream and lady fingers. However, tiramisu from Caffe Palermo was served in a sundae cup with everything blended together. It looks like mush and tastes like mush.

My friends desserts are bad too! The desserts are over price and taste bad.

The waiters are friendly.

“Really the best cannolis!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We only went to taste the famous cannolis and we were not disappointed! Really the best cannolis I have eaten! Don't expect too much from the guy that hands you the cannolis, he is not very talkative, but worth the price for the cannolis.
