Being a relocated Italian family from Long Island NY to Richmond VA, my wife and I are always on the lookout for good Italian restaurants. We happened upon Palermo by accident, as my wife had to do some specialty shopping in the shopping center where Palermo is located. As it was near dinner time, we decided to give Palermo a... More

Spouse and I along with another couple visited here for dinner. Our first visit. Very impressive. The atmosphere and staff are wonderful and the service by Christopher was top-notch. We both enjoyed the Gambari Scampi which was fantastic! The other couple had the Vitello Marsala and the Vitello Portabel over pasta. All the dishes were excellent and well prepared. We... More

This was the first time my wife and I dined at Palermo's. We joined three other couples and our table was ready at the time of our reservation. The booth we were offered was not to our liking for our group of 8, and they cheerfully moved us to a large round table that seated 8 comfortably and was great... More

Friends and I go almost weekly and enjoy drinks and a great meal in the bar. It reminds me of "Cheers" where everyone knows your name. The food is great. Don the bartender is the best, friendly and very attentive always making sure we have everything we need. Love this place!

Great selection ; unusual in that pasta not included with entree ( example: side order required with veal Parmesan ). Noisy when busy, so conversation more difficult.

First time we ate here, it was fabulous! So we brought friends. The second time the rolls and appetizers were overcooked. While the lasagna was good, Specifically asked that there be no lemon of any kind on the crabcakes and it was loaded with it.

First time eating here. Enjoyed the veal picatta & orecchietti pasta! The garlic knots were great!! Salad lacking, but the house Italian dressing was very good. Will definitely go again.

We have eaten at Palermo 4-5 times and have usually had good food and good service but I am sad to say that last night I had a bad meal last evening. Normally, I would write off one poor tasting meal if everything else was good (my companions meals, the service, etc.) but because of the seriously poor and nasty... More

While previous visits had been pleasant, this place has changed. Unless you are a friend of the rather rude lady at the desk, don't think you will get a table in a timely manner. The girl on the phone never looked up, the rather rude lady running around was snapping at people and every person who came in AFTER us... More
