When the cravings for comfort food strike, Palermo's is a necessary stop for pizza, pasta and veal parmigiana. Regulars—and there are a lot of 'em—are fanatics about the pizzarosa, thick slices of bread topped with melted feta, mozzarella, parmigiano cheese and fresh tomatoes. It's both a cozy spot for dates and a family-friendly joint; just make sure that you come hungry and prepared to leave stuffed to the gills.

Classic red sauce joint that gives you a lot of bang for not too much buck.  And they deliver!  And any entree basically puts you above the minimum!  WHAT MIRACLES!  The Pizza Rosa is a delicious pie; the chicken parm is yummy as can be.  PS--the side of spaghetti that comes with entrees is basically an entire meal in itself.  Great service, homey digs, this is absolutely a neighborhood standby worth supporting.  Parking in the area can be a challenge, so be aware before you go.

Palermo is the flavor and ambiance of an old school Italian joint in the middle of hip Los Feliz. Inside they have all the traditional Italian restaurant stereotypes: signed headshots from celebs that have indulged there, a wine bar taken right out of Goodfellas, and an accordion player who mildly accosts patrons with his improvised tunes. It was refreshing coming from a city that seems to have more pretentious Italian style restaurants than they do tried and true chicken parm based southern Italian eateries. The Napa Cab my date and I split was phenomenal and highly recommended by our friendly server. My eggplant parm was hardy with a darker red sauce, that I am usually not a fan of, but it complemented my red wine well. I think if anything I was more enamored with the wine and ambiance than the food, but I would return to at least grab a glass of red wine before going out.
