Had a team dinner here and the food and service were great and best of all it is a family run place not a chain. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. The portions are good too. Just beer and wine but a great little casual place in Elk Grove

My son loves Italian food, Italy and Italians..maybe not in that order. Last night we dined for the first time in Palermo. We were greeted warmly by the owner/chef. Our server was the chef's granddaughter who was funny and efficient. The my son inquired about an excellent Italian wine not on the menu, Negramaro (sp?), which the chef did have in stock. This wine was smooth and paired well with the mussels in cream sauce, fresh crab ravioli, salmon picatta, shrimp linguine and the meatballs. Each sauce not only complimented the food, but also defied our efforts to hold back dipping bread and enjoying every bite.
Our dishes were seasoned delightfully and presented beautifully. The owner previously had two restaurants in Palo Alto and the esthetics and quality showed. I ordered the tiramisu for dessert and that also was excellent. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

Great services and staff are very friendly. The pesto bread was a surprise. Fettucine Alfredo with Chicken and Lasagna were delicious. Lasagna was huge and it could easily feed four adult. The Tiramisu was to die for. Don't let the location fool you. We will definitely go back again.

Wow!! This place surprised me. The location is near McDonalds and totally overlooked. Once inside you'll think you're in another place. The ambiance and customer service-exceptional. Italian/ romantic music playing. Very clean, nice Italian feel. The music was so romantic. There a bar with tv-watch the game. The owner is amazing.

The FOOD !!! Deleciouso... I am not Italian but I know good food. You have to have the lasagna , the serving size tremendous. It was so flavorful, cheesy and meaty at the same time. I loved it. I could not eat it all. The waitress so sweet. Oh and the desert I had lemon cake yummy. Everything was fresh. The whipped soft butter for the bread-great
This is Elk Grove hidden treasure
