THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Palermo Villa Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The interior of the restaurant, emanating with a Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra-type soundtrack, is decked in warm colors, its walls adorned with food-related art. Although pizza is a staple and a favorite among local college students and families (we like "The Sicilian" best), you’ll also find a menu dominated by Italian classics like lasagna, baked rigatoni, manicotti and fettuccine Palermo with prosciutto and chicken. The Friday fish fry is a favorite here, featuring broiled or deep-fried haddock, Sicilian-style cod and lake perch. Whenever we dine, we like to finish with tiramisu or house-made cannoli.
