    Wonderful restaurant. Great food and attentive, friendly service.

    YUCK ! I guess growing up with Sicilian grandparents in NY has jaded me when it comes to determining what is good and what is not good when it comes to Idy food. Good effort, no substance.

    Great calzone's, with wheat crust – we always order a side of their excellent marinara to dip or pour over the calzone. Good prices, great service, and their baked zucchini is worth ordering more than once!

    Quick delivery- serve breakfast all day! Marinara sauce is a bit off to me – too spicy but continue to order take out and am happy – good desserts too.

    My apologies to Palermo’s for only focusing on the negative/pizza in my previous review, because everything else about them we continue to enjoy a lot. We should take responsiblity for what we say in public, and I need to add fairness and balance to my comment.
    First, the rest of the food:
    The special Wedding Soup is To Die For, above excellent restaurant food and more like your Mother’s or Grandmother’s famous family dish that she has perfected while serving to family for 40 years. Do not miss it if you are lucky enough to have it the day you are there. The spinach salad, polpette, and buffalo wings are also consistently quite good. The canoli has been fresh every time, which is something I can only say about the few restaurants that make them fresh one at a time as they are ordered. There are few things in life better than fresh chocolate canoli.
    Secondly, the service:
    The service we have received from Palermo’s has been impeccable in every time of day, good and bad weather, and quiet or rush times including holidays and Big Games. Every person we have met from Palermo’s has been extremely friendly and pleasant to my family and I, including when they are wet, dripping, and cold and delivering our food in the dark. Some of them remember us and provide personalized service that makes us feel they really value us as customers.
    We have just been disappointed in what has happened with the pizza during the last several months, but I should not have implied that the pizza is the only thing about Palermo’s, everything else and everyone there we have been very happy with.
    My apologies to the folks at Palermo’s for only focusing on the negative in my last review.

    I love, love, love the food in this place, I have eaten there twice and both times I bragged to all of my friends about the experience, the food was simply perfect.

    Really enjoyed reading Scott’s post on the restaurant very thoughtful.

    You completed a number of nice points there. I have done specific search terms about them and discovered mainly individuals will get along with with all your blog.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put
    this article together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time
    both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • 16 Dress UP Games // Nov 18, 2014 at 4:46 pm

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
