This was our first time at Palemo's and we loved it. The staff could not have been nicer nor more efficient. The food was delicious and the portion size was very generous. We shared one veal parmigiana, had enough for two of us and took home enough for our daughter's dinner!

Palermo's 95th, in Oak Lawn, has been a family favorite for over 40 years. There are a lot of Italian restaurants in the Chicago area, but Palermo's is our favorite, by far. This visit was for the thin crust pizza. Salad and appetizers are reasonably priced. The restaurant is usually very busy on the weekend, so making a reservation through OpenTable is a great way to avoid a long wait.

The food, service and the entire dining experience was great. However, I thought I had registered successfully to use my OpenTable gift, but was unable to redeem it. I had
activated the acknowledgement code from the gift that was given to me, but obviously,
I had missed a step that would have led to the redemption process. I paid with my own credit card and will have work on mastering the complexities of gift card redemption via OpenTable.
Thank you!

Palermo’s is one of our favorites!! Absolutely delicious Italian cuisine. Pizza is the best on the Southside of Chicago (my husband could live on this pizza for the rest of his life!!). Our waitress, Trish, was awesome. She made sure we were satisfied at all times. She was on top of drink refills without even asking. We love Palermo’s!!

We are in our 60s and have been eating Palermos practically our whole life, starting with 63rd St. Then going to 95th St. when they opened. Excellent food!!!!

Sylvia and I went New Years Day. 1:00. The restaurant was almost empty. The waitress was an older lady who had been there a long time. She was very nice, food was al dente, good portions, and the chefs will modify your order whenever possible.

Food always good. Service not so much. Long wait for waitress to take and bring orders and did not check on us very frequently. Dinner entrees not as good as previously but pizza is always top notch.
