We don't have a ton of GREAT restaurants in Midlothian but this is amazing!! Everything I have had is great. The veal parm is a favorite. The house dressing is great!! Their pizzas are awesome. When you are in the mood for Italian this is a must!!!

Palermo's is our go to restaurant close to home. It offers both dinner and lunch options that our consistently good at reasonable costs. Service is always good and the owner is normally on site. Portions are adaquate and we often see folks with doggie bags in hand.

This is our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. The food is always delicious. Great wine list. Service is usually very good, but because of a couple times it was not, I gave it 4 stars. The Italian dressing there is the best ever. Love the bread. The mozzarella sticks are by far the best I have ever tried. The... More

Palermo ! What a nice dining experience ! The Mozarella appetizer was delicious, with tomatoes, crostini, and fresh basil. Entrees were well executed...delicious crab cakes, chicken, and Pasta! Our server took great care of us, the environment was warm and welcoming. All-in-all, this was a 2 thumbs up evening. The portions are large, the wine list is extensive.

We've visited the restaurant about six times in the past year and have always enjoyed tasty meals and wonderful service. Most recently we had braised beef ravioli and the Gambari parmesan. Excellent. The rolls buttered and seasoned and served hot are a good beginning to the meal. Salads are always fresh and we like their house creamy garlic dressing.

Visited Palermo's last week with friends for dinner. Very busy and noisy but not overly so. Traditional appetizer of bruschetta was quite good and plenty for all four of us. Entrees ranged from shrimp fra Diablo to lasagna to veal. All were excellent and more than filling. Entrees come with a house salad so you really do not need an... More

We had dinner here with a group of friends, the service was ok, it was hard to get refills on water but it was a large group. The bread was wonderful and I enjoyed the salad but when I tasted the ravioli, wow it had no taste other than tomato sauce, it tasted like someone opened a can of sauce,... More

The gnocchi dishes are delicious and my go to meals. The Stromboli is HUGE and enough for two people. The bread - to die for. Never had a bad meal

An uncaring waitress who when her young assistant tipped the plate and spilled hot gravy onto to one of our guests and myself finally came over after I had to get up and call her over. Not that we would have accepted but she never offered a complimentary coke, or dessert or offered to pay for his dry cleaning. As... More
