Palermo’s Pizza: Saluti Dalla Famiglia


Located near Miller Park west of downtown, Palermo’s Pizza opened the doors to their Milwaukee, Wisconsin location in 2007. First-generation Italian American’s, the Fallucca family embodies an over forty year story of immigration, hard work, expansion, and name-brand recognition in your local grocery store.

Within the new economically-sustainable manufacturing facility is the Palermo’s Pizza Tour, the only pizza tour in Milwaukee. The tour starts and ends in the on-site Pizzeria & Café, which you can visit during normal hours.

Reservations are required for the Pizza Tour. Plan to spend between $4 or $13 per person, depending on your tour preference. Kids under 1 are free with one paid adult. Reservations are required for any of the tours, call 414-455-0383 or fill out the reservation request online. We had fun during our visit, but the video showing company history and behind-the-scenes magic was a bit lengthy for our 3-year-old (then again, the tour did overlap into his regularly-programmed nap time). Elementary-age school kids and older will be fine.

On nice-weather days, enjoy your slice of pizza outside to the Italian Garden. 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 from.

  1. We just took a tour of Palermo’s! It was so much fun. My husband and I enjoyed it as much as the kids. And the pizza afterward was delicious.
