Fabulous Spinach Pasta, Wonderful Italian Bread in Downtown Athens

I had a hankering for some Italian, so I walked from my hotel to DePalma's, which is right in downtown Athens - there are a couple of other locations in town, too. Although there is sidewalk seating and it was a nice evening, I had the hostess seat me inside and she put me at what she calls her... read more

We met several family members and friends for dinner and it is a very good place for get togethers. Very clean restaurant with a friendly staff. My wife ordered pasta alfredo and I ordered the pan seared Newfoundland scallops. We were both happy with our meals. The others in the group ordered several different dishes and no one complained about... More

We dine at De Palma's east side location approximately 6 times a year. It never fails to satisfy. The menu offers some tried and true dishes with several specials each day. I am partial to the chicken scallopini, served with a nice sauce and spinach. The Caesar salad is a favorite of mine. We've lived here 25 years and this... More

The best service we have ever gotten in a restaurant of this caliber. Great fresh sliced bread with olive oil. Outstanding salads and entree for the price. We were super pleased and impressed at this East Side location. We ate outside under cover on a beautiful spring day and had a two hour business meeting with the Wo defile lumch

On a recent visit to Athens, we called this restaurant in an attempt to make a dinner reservation; however, were advised they were too busy, they had a full house. We were not surprised, as it was a Saturday night with lots happening in town. So, we decided to walk downtown to try find an eatery that could seat us.... More

This is a Collage town restaurant and they do not have to be great. The service was slow and the hostess was not very nice. The food was just ok. Will not go back.

The front desk of our hotel recommended De Palmas. We came on a busy Thursday evening and ate at the bar. Our service was fair and the food was only OK. It might have been better to sit at a proper dining table. The pasta was cool when it was served, and over cooked. While the crust and sauce of... More
