Delicious Italian Entrees!

Best bruschetta we've had in years. Shrimp Charmaine dinner was excellent and so was the chicken scallopini. Reasonable prices and very good service.

I have two groups...former work colleagues and neighborhood friends who meet monthly at De Palmas on the east side. Always good food and great service.

De Palma's make some of the best pizza in Athens! The flavors and style is perfect, and the seasoning meets all pizza requirements. A large is enough to feed a couple college guys, so and the price matches the high quality. Way better than "fast food" pizza.

recommended, usually go the eastside location for convenience and parking. Booths make for decent atmosphere for business lunches. Downtown location has great food and service as well!

We called ahead because we had a party of 13. We only waited about five minutes for a table when we arrived. Our waitress did a fabulous job of serving such a large party. The food was wonderful. It is a little on the pricy side, but is a nice place to go for special occasions.

The service is great and the food is fresh. I admire their variety of Italian cocktails and beer. The downtown Athens location is very nice. I would visit again.

Great food. Great wine! Atmosphere is good. Try the meat all breadsticks - made to order so it will take about 20min. Pasta dePalma is great.

We arrived in a group of six and had called earlier and we could not make a reservation. We arrived around 8:30 PM on a Saturday evening and there was not a table for us, not a problem. We waited at the bar and had a drink while waiting. The bartender was fantastic! She was very friendly and helpful to... More

We sat down and ordered relatively quickly. Our sweet waitress brought us some yummy, hot bread. My husband and I shared the large Apple Walnut salad. It was delicious and the candied walnuts added a nice crunch. My youngest daughter ordered the Alfredo spaghetti and cleaned her plate. We ordered a pizza with no cheese on half. We waited and...
