Italian Cuisine For The Soul


Local Covina restaurant, “Palermo’s Italian Restaurant,” is one of those places that is daunting to enter upon first glance. It looks tiny and dark from the outside, but on the inside, it is perfectly dimmed to accentuate any occasion. The restaurant is open everyday from 11 A.M. until 8 P.M. to accommodate any lunch or dinner. However, they close for lunch on Mondays, and reopen from 4:30 P.M. until the regular closing time.

Palermo’s is a small restaurant, but it is very cozy. The atmosphere is set up so that customers feel at ease while ordering and dining. The music, alongside the delicious aroma of Italian spices, gives Palermo’s an authentic Italian feel.

The menu is quite simple and straightforward, with prices that are neither too high, nor too low. One has the option to pick from pizza, ravioli, lasagna, and even a meatball sandwich. We decided to go with lasagna and a mushroom pizza.

Unlike most restaurants, Palermo’s pizza is not drenched in sauce; It has just the right amount. The pizza at Palermo’s also does not have a rubbery feel, and is very easy to bite. And the crust, oh the crust, it’s delicious. It is crunchy to a crisp, but is not burned at all. One has the option of adding sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, mushroom, olives, or just have it plain.Palermo's from the outside.

One has the option to choose from a full dinner with any entree, or the entree itself with a soup or salad (not a super salad). We were feeling adventurous and opted for the full dinner with the lasagna. The full dinner came with a mouth-watering slice of lasagna, garlic bread knots, and a salad for just $11.

Everything we tried was delicious and we would definitely recommend this restaurant to any fan of Italian cuisine. We rate it 4.5/5 stars.

Just share it.
