Come to Palermo Pizza for authentic delicious Italian food.
A young man Frank from Palermo, Sicily came to America to Long Island New York. He was working at construction of building shopping centers for himself with the help of his uncles where he opened his first pizzeria deli. From there, he duplicated his concept in every center until ending up with 35 pizzerias and delis – all very successful in business.
Last one he opened was with a man named Mario Comparetto and it was sold the very next day. Mario used to make the cheese for Frank’s Pizzerias. He continues to use the same quality products with his new venture taking back to his roots.
Frank has teamed up with General Manager Johnny Budd to present to you Palermo Pizza of Sarasota, featuring fresh home baked breads and signature muffaletta and other Italian delicacies, made with the finest freshest ingredients available. The Legend Lives On!!!
“What a Gem! We checked TripAdvisor for a restaurant with good food, good prices, and a location not far off main thoroughfares between Ft. Myers and Clearwater. After coming from both directions we met another couple at Palermo’s just as Johnny, our server and the owner’s son, opened. He was delighted to tell us that they bake bread (we loved the garlic bread knots) right there and everything is made from scratch. We quickly noted that the place is far more than a mere pizza shop. There was a large, tempting, salad, sandwich, and pasta menu. The Greek salad was just wonderful; full of tomatoes, onions, black olives and an abundance of feta. Our friends ordered pizza thick with toppings. My husband had a meatball sandwich with large delicious meatballs. My Veal Parmesan was perfect. We brought enough leftovers home for another meal. We agreed with our friends that we should meet there once again in the future. So we’ll be back!’ – JB7274

“Everything, and MORE! WOW! Came in for a bit to eat and ordered margarita pizza and antipasta. Was absolutely amazing! Antipasto had real fresh veggies and meats paired with a excellent balsamic Vinaigrette. Finished my whole pie myself! Chef is great, can’t wait to come back!” – Italian1991
