About Us

palchiFrom humble beginnings, Palermo’s began as a simple pizza shop on 63rd St. in Chicago of 1961. Palermo’s got its start from the first generation of our Sicilian family with one key idea in mind: to make a better pizza. Combining their old world recipes with modern trends, Palermo’s quickly gained a reputation for outstanding service and pizza. Our unique sweet sauce used in our pizza is a highly guarded family secret.

Our family continues to make the sauce, sausage, dough and cheese blends by hand themselves, ensuring its quality remains at our high standards. Palermo’s has been able to expand its reach all throughout the Southwest Chicagoland area and offers delivery and catering services as well as carry out. Our menu has expanded over the decades to include authentic Italian pastas and dinners as well as many appetizers, sides, and salads all made from scratch daily. We always make true taste our priority.
