Help Rebuild Palermo Italian Restaurant

Palermo Restaurant was tragically a victim of an unexpected arson attack over Labor Day weekend. The front of the restaurant suffered significant damage and heavy smoke damage throughout the rest of the property.

The community has graciously offered support, so we decided to make a GoFundMe. We, unfortunately, have no idea how long the restaurant will be closed, as part of the damage includes our main power line leaving us with no power on the property. We want to look out for our hard-working staff. Because of this, we have set our fundraising goal to what we might predict will assist with offsetting costs during this unknown period.

This tragedy is something we could have never imagined. The Cusimano Family truly appreciates all of your support. The outreach we have received from family, friends and the community has already been incredible, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you so much, and Palermo will be back better than ever!!! Grazie mille!

I, Giacoma, will be managing the GoFundMe on behalf of my parents.
