Been eating here since I was a kid and still grab a pizza here when I'm in town. Last time instead of carry out, the family convened for a large meal after a day at Brookfield Zoo. Treated like kings. Love it just as much as ever. Thanks.

I have done other pizza restaurant reviews, they are still good. But the very best pizza in the world is a little place on 63rd street called Palermo's. My cousins will travel from Far north of Chicago to the South side of Chicago to eat. Because it becomes a craving for the red sauce that is a touch sweet, plenty... More

Whenever I fly from Las Vegas to Chicago, I puirposely select an airline that flys into Midway so I can go to Palermo's on 63rd Street. I love garlic---no two ways about it--so I am very fond of their aglio e olio, the penne con broccoli and the awesome chicken vesuvio. The pizzas are also fantastic. I have always been... More

People like to argue the merits of various Chicago pizza places. They're wasting their time. Palermo's on 63 rd St. is, and has always been, the best pizza place in Chicago. Doesn't make any difference if you prefer thin dish or stuffed, Palermo's excels at both versions. Their sweet sauce has been a family secret for 60 years. And whatever... More

Me and my family have been ordering Palermo's since I was a kid. I know my review isn't pure nostalgia based on the fact I hooked some of my friends on to this pizza as an adult. The pizza has some delicious sweet sauce that is completely unlike anything I've ever had before or after. The only thing that probably... More

If you go to Palermo, get the flat bread pizza. It is the best. Don't forget the flat bread cheese pizza too. So good!

Ive been coming here for as long as I can remeber. Great pizza and dinners. The sweet sauce is the best. Not a week goes by that we don't have a pizza from here. From the stuffed to the paper thin crust pizza, you will love them all.

Just a warning that the sauce on the pizza is sweet and may not be for everyone. I myself like eating different flavored pizzas and love Palermo's combination of the sweet sauce with the sausage. The restaurant also has your typical Italian dishes. Prices are good, and there's always left over food to bring home. Free parking in back. Parking... More
