Classic Italian food with a variety of classic dishes like shrimp scampi. Their pizzas are the really good though. Thick crusted and full of toppings. You can also have a pastrami pizza!
Palermo is extremely charming. There's better Italian food to be had in this city, but Palermo is always a great experience. When it's crowded, you can sip cheap wine while waiting for a table, and the pizza rosa they serve as table bread is simply awesome.
My friend lived right next to this place so we'd go a lot. It's old school and very mafia feeling. The pizza is good and the bread fantastic. Slather it all in butter and enjoy with friends. It's Los Feliz so parking can be hard.
This is the friendliest service you will find anywhere. Great food, amazing service.
I love this restaurant. It offers some delicious Italian food that everyone will surely enjoy.
food poisoning - be warned – I had a very bad experience here. I ate the linguini with clams and suffered a 24hr bout of seafood poisoning. do not eat here.
Italian Food ? – I tried this place twice - once dining in, and once I ordered take out.
Both times the food was less than stellar.
There are much better places to experience Italian food in Los Feliz- say' Farfalla' or even some dishes at 'Little Doms'.
Sorry Palermos...just calling it like my taste buds scream it.

25 minutes for a slice of takeout pizza – Walked into Palermos to order a slice of takeout pizza. Thought the guy said it would take 10 minutes when I asked him to repeat how long. 15 minutes later the slice still hadn't arrived. I asked an employee walking past who said, "If it's not on the counter it's not done." Waited a few more minutes and asked another person walking by who also responded quickly saying, "They'll bring it to the counter when it's ready."
The front lobby was crowded and I could never quite get up to the person who originally took the order but since I believed the other employees that the slice wasn't done I didn't push my way to the counter.
Finally, after 25 minutes, and after already having paid, I'd become disgusted and the crowd had thinned enough that I asked the person who took my order what was taking so long. He said "Oh, there you are!" with a big smile.
I never moved further than 10 feet from the cashier station.
I said it had been 25 minutes and I thought it was only supposed to be 10. A guy named Tony said "A slice only takes 2 minutes. You need to come up and remind us your still here every couple of minutes next time."
Are you kidding me??
Suffice it to say, there won't be a next time. I had asked 2 other employees. The whole time I was standing close enough to the counter, though it was constantly packed, that if I took a large step forward I could touch it.
I said, "You mean I have to remind you to actually bring out an order that has been placed when I don't know if it's finished?? Shouldn't you automatically bring it to the counter and say the order is ready?"
"You just need to remind us."
Having asked a couple of employees, I believe it's the establishment's responsibility to keep track of doing their job, not the customer's responsibility, especially after I was told twice that "it will come out when it was done."
If I hadn't already paid nearly a half hour before, I would've walked out without the pizza or paying. It infuriated me that this guy, Tony, said to "remind us next time."
Like I said Tony, there won't be a next time.
Great Italian delivery! – On a 'night in' this is definately the place to get great take out! They will basically deliver a date in a box, including chilled wine! Also, owners are wonderful and welcoming and will give you a discount if you order frequently!
