Saluti Dalla Famiglia: Welcome to the Family

Palermo’s Pizza, Welcome to the Family

Have you ever seen a pepperoni dance? It’s true; pepperoni’s dance on the assembly line. In a final trip through the slicer, the giant sticks sway and swoon sporadically to the imaginary sound of a roaming violin. Located near Miller Park west of downtown, Palermo’s Pizza opened the doors to their new location in 2007. First-generation Italian American’s the Fallucca family embodies an over forty year story of immigration, hard work, expansion, revolution, and now your grocery isle.

With the new economically-sustainable location came the Palermo’s Pizza Tour (the only pizza tour in Milwaukee, by the way). On the tour, you start and end in the on-site Pizzeria & Café. If you aren’t hungry for olives and capers by the time the tour begins, you will have an irrational craving for them an hour later. On nice-weather days, enjoy your slice of pizza outside to the Italian Garden. Go ahead; pretend you are back in the Mother Country. I did. I suppose you could always just dine at the café (Dare I suggest, even skip the tour and come for lunch over a lunch hour?).

Reservations are required for the Pizza Tour. Plan to spend either $5 or $7.50 per person, depending on your tour preference. Kids under 5 are free. Unless you are with a special group (church, school, company), the best time to take a tour is Friday at 1:30 PM. Reservations are required for any of the tours, and you can call 414-455-0383 to hold a spot (and pre-order your slice of pizza). The video showing company history and behind-the-scenes magic was a bit lengthy for our 3-year-old (but, then again, the tour did overlap into his regularly-programmed nap time). Elementary-age school kids were clearly having a blast!

Whether you are a fan of the best-selling Primo Thin Margherita or the USDA & OTCO certified Hearth Italia Organic, it’s always fun to see where your food comes. You could always find a Palermo’s Pizza in the freezer section, but wouldn’t it be more fun to watch the pepperoni’s dance?  Come to Milwaukee and see for yourself! You may just hear a violin.
