The title says it all! We were very disappointed with the lack of flavor. The place was busy. Did we just get the wrong stuff? Chicken Marasal and Chicken Francaise... 1st time there / last time there... Even the house dressing was bland! I won't...More

´Tis a grand day. Palermo’s is an Italian restaurant in West Kettering, which we have enjoyed for years and years. We like the re-decoration details of this small restaurant, and the tables are doubled by the very nice outdoor patio. Today, folks are dining outside...More

Don't be put off by the location, this is a pretty good place to eat. The food was good. While I can't rave about it, I would say I will go back. I had the Gnocchi and would get it again. The pizzas looked good...More

Following a local news review, we stopped by for dinner one night. The pizza crust is perfect: Thin, crisp on the bottom, chewy in the middle, and the crust a Goldilocks' "Just Right", not too big, not too small. The cheeses were tasty, but far...More

Tis a bright sunny afternoon with the temperature approaching 47 degrees, and the abundant snow is everywhere. Had it not been the weekend, I would be skiing. Palermo's is a real Italian Mom and Pop cuisine, and several Italian fans have found this little gem....More
